Small business owners have repeatedly made a faulty assumption, and this assumption is killing them: Get big to get rich. A better question would be: What did the big guys do that caused the success that allowed them to get big? The answer is not just one thing. “Business is complex and anyone who says it isn’t is trying to sell you their version of the magic pill. But the Small business owners have repeatedly made a faulty assumption, and this assumption is killing them: Get big to get rich. A better question would be: What did the big guys do that caused the success that allowed them to get big? The answer is not just one thing. “Business is complex and anyone who says it isn’t is trying to sell you their version of the magic pill. But there are some common denominators which drive sustainability and long term success. One of those is a willingness to think… another is an ability to measure. Sadly, most businesses are struggling financially and they will stay that way because the owner is too busy operating and not running the business end of the business. It’s not that they don’t want to…. It’s that no one ever taught them how. Here’s the problem: You can’t run the business end of your business without business skills and tools. As Warren Buffett said, “If you can’t read the scoreboard, you don’t know the score. If you don’t know the score, you can’t tell the winners from the losers.” Business success requires business skills and tools. Here it is on a bumper sticker: Great operators get tired. Great business owners get rich! This book teaches you the strategies which will give you optics and enhance your ability to see the places where you’re leaving money on the table and sabotaging your business.

    One of the most underrated business books around. A little more math (finance) based, but you won't need an abacus to get around it. One of the most underrated business books around. A little more math (finance) based, but you won't need an abacus to get around it.

    He does a great job of breaking down the importance of how to produce a spreadsheet to see the lifeline of your business. Some good pointers and questions raised throughout the book.

    Although I gave this book a three star rating... I’d recommend it to anybody looking to create or turn your existing business into something more sustainable. The main takeaways is that you need to be measuring and comparing. And how you’re actually reading financial documents such as the income statement, balance sheet, or cash flow statement wrong! It’s easier to compare stats if you’re records are in percentages. You need to cut things that are hindering your business. And more techniques and Although I gave this book a three star rating...

You need to cut things that are hindering your business. And more techniques and skills to learn to develop your business optics. The reason why it’s not five stars is because I felt like by the end of the book, the author was trying to sell me too much on his CFO Scoreboard and his other books/classes. But once again, I found the information and other techniques helpful. I should also note that he doesn’t go too in-depth in these things. The author doesn’t give you everything. He gives you the key things you need to know, and you need to go out on your own and learn more about them. Keep learning everybody, you’re here now... and because of that; I’m assuming you’re on a good path.

    It's not an ultimate blueprint, it's about finance, accounting and risk minimalization. But what it showed gave me a broader sense of just that. What I didn't like was that it assumes I am clueless when it comes to finance and that I don't understand the accounting 'mumbo jumbo'. I do for a large part. What I did like was the new analysis formula of interpreting the P&L & cash flow: effectiveness * effeciency * productivity = operating cash flow/assets or: (revenue/assets) * (profits/revenue) * (ope It's not an ultimate blueprint, it's about finance, accounting and risk minimalization.

It is merely a shortcut you can by in finance. It is even opposite what Keith says: all skills are learnable.

    Read your way to higher profitability Would you drive your car 100 mph on a moonless night with no headlights, no dashboard and no idea of where you are going? That may be how you are driving your business. In both cases a very big painful crash is in your near future. This book will give you the insight on how to avoid that crash and get a seat in first class. The right coach will speed the process and increase the profit curve. Feel free to call me

    This is a strange book. Some parts are completely useless and just advertisement, but there chapters that are super useful. If you have some basic accounting knowledge, and you want to learn some basic accounting analysis and get some insight, this book is helpful

    Another must have business book if you own a business. Pithy, direct and a lot of food for thought. I truly hope I can get to his 4 day MBA course one day if the book is anything to go by.

    I've heard Keith Cunningham speak several times on the topic covered by this book so I was familiar with most of the ideas. Even so, I still picked up a few new distinctions. I would recommend this book to you if: 1. You are in business or thinking about starting one. 2. You are not an expert at reading accounting statements. This is a great quick read.
