Author, "Big Cotton" (Viking/Penguin)
The Savvy Entrepreneur's greatest strength is the depth of advice that it holds. Lee Prior begins each section of this book with an attention getting quote, follows the quote with a real life example of the principle that he is trying to explain and then goes on to describe at length the steps to avoid and to be taken to become successful in your business.
The first fifty pages are devoted to cultivating the correct company culture and include advice on adapting to changing markets and measuring success and failure. The foundations of a successful endeavor of any sort are explained here and this section includes examples of common mistakes that most new companies make and ways to avoid these mistakes.
Much of the rest of the Savvy Entrepreneur is devoted to managing the people end of your company and the advice regarding leadership and management, respecting your accountants, listening to your employees and your customers are particularly well written. This advice is essential to becoming a successful entrepreneur but it could be just as applicable as advice for living a successful life.
The author ends the book with some advice on raising cash and on financing and with a checklist of what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. The checklist has 12 traits that are scored on a one to ten scale and anyone who is seriously considering starting a company owe it to themselves to take the reality check that this quick checklist provides.
This book can be read in an afternoon.Read more ›
