9781921589768: Building Your Business, Your People, Your Life

Through practical advice and inspirational examples, this book will help you grow your business and brand to heights you may never have thought possible. But the man who helped steer the phenomenal growth of Gloria Jean’s Coffees in Australia warns that success is not just about being the best and making the most profit. It’s also about taking the people around you--your family, staff, customers and community--on the journey with you.

Peter Irvine integrates deep life truths with personally-proven business principles to enrich your business, your people and your life. Peter unravels the myth that business and family don’t mix. He challenges you to a more rewarding life by involving your family in your business and vice versa.

Build Your Brand, Your People, Your Life unveils the age-old wisdom that a fulfilled life is determined not just by how much you own or what you achieve, but by your relationships... and how well you lead and inspire those around you.

Thank you, Peter!”

“Peter’s new book essentially reflects Peters’ heart. Business is a part of one’s life, so what is the point of being successful in business, making lots of money and then destroying your health, relationships, marriage and family in the process? Peter lives what he writes and speaks. He does not write books out of theory. His books are the practical outworking of his considerable business success. What I like about this book is its focus on balance, enjoying the journey and ensuring you put first things first. A must-read book for any business owner, entrepreneur, leader or in fact anybody living in our modern hectic world. Peter is my own modern day Solomon, an abundance of wisdom of how to live and prosper. Read, enjoy and let this wisdom transform you!”
