Conventional business wisdom tells you that there’s always something to learn from failure. Not true, says Barry Moltz. Sometimes, failure just stinks. Bounce! explains how success and failure are simply normal outcomes in the regular lifecycle of a business and that process over the long term matters far more than individual outcomes. This book shows you how to build a business that can “bounce” through these cycles for long-term success. If you run a business, better make it Bounce!

From the Inside Flap:

Bounce! is about developing confidence, but not just any sort ofconfidence. It's about developing the kind of true businessconfidence that prepares you for both failure and success.

But this is not a book about coming back from failure.

Comeback books have been written many times before. The comebackis romanticized in society and totally overrated. In Bounce!,you'll learn about accepting failure as a normal part of theprocess even when there isn't something to learn from it. Failurethat offers no real learning value jolts the business beliefsystem.

In Bounce!, entrepreneur and business owner Barry Moltz explainsthat both success and failure are simply outcomes in the normallife cycle of business—a life cycle in which overall processmatters far more than any single event or outcome. Great businessesare those that develop the resiliency to bounce through thesecycles to succeed over the long term. Using a blend of personalexperience and firsthand interviews with business leaders, Moltzshares the practical tools and techniques that every business needsto survive the cycle of ups and downs. In Bounce!, you'll learn the"building bands" for true business confidence, including:

  • Using humility to "right size" your ego

  • Making fear fly in formation

  • Using choices to embrace failure when it happens

  • The art of more effective risk-taking

  • How process trumps outcome

  • Setting patient goals to establish your own scorecard

  • Creating your own brand of success

Bounce! lets you move forward from any event, situation, oroutcome—good or bad—to the next place where a decisioncan be made based on the choices currently available to you.Bounce! allows us to be passionately excited and intenselyenthusiastic about our business and our lives.
