IF YOU BELIEVE THAT:
THEN THE FACTS OF BUSINESS LIFE IS FOR YOU!
Written by a successful business owner with four decades of experience, The Facts of Business Life is full of real-world concepts that owners must use and embrace if they want to become and stay successful. This multiple award-winning book has been endorsed by some of America’s top business leaders, like Steve Forbes and Ken Fisher, and has been recognized as “one of the best five business books of the year” and “a must read for entrepreneurs or those wanting to be one.”
McBean begins with clear explanations and real-life examples of the seven Facts of Business Life that every successful business owner knows and executes consistently, including exactly what they are as well as how and when to use them. He then goes on to show how those facts impact on the five levels every successful business passes through, from “Ownership and Opportunity” to “Moving On When It’s Time to Go,” explaining that while the facts themselves remain the same, as a business becomes successful and moves through its life cycle, the way they are applied must change to fit changing circumstances.
But there are even more reasons why this breakthrough business book is a must read, including:
MANY BUSINESS BOOKS INCREASE THEIR READERS’ KNOWLEDGE—THE FACTS OF BUSINESS LIFE NOT ONLY INCREASES THAT KNOWLEDGE, IT SHOWS YOU HOW TO TURN IT INTO PROFITS.
From the Back Cover:
Praise for The Facts of Business Life
"Bill McBean has both the experience and the acute insights to give entrepreneurs the must-know basics in an easy-to-grasp way. He does just that with The Facts of Business Life, which provides an invaluable 'long view' on what it really means to be an entrepreneur. Businesses, like civilizations, have particular life cycles. This is the first business book I know of that is structured around the customary life cycle of a company and the skills required at each juncture. I especially like the author's thoughts on 'building-in' your exit strategy early on."
—Steve Forbes, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, Forbes Media
"If you're a would-be entrepreneur or a business owner embroiled in the day-to-day business of business, there's not much that speaks to the full life-cycle of what it means—truly means—to be an owner, manager, CEO, and board chairman. That's where Bill McBean comes in."
—From the Foreword by New York Times bestselling author Ken Fisher
"Bill McBean is a classic entrepreneur with 'street smarts,' book smarts, and a tremendous will to win. His success as an athlete, a small businessman, and a highly respected multi-franchise retailer gives him credibility to be heard and valued."
—Mike Maroone, President and COO, AutoNation
"Being in business for yourself is not only a part of the great American dream. I feel it is the best way to work, live, and succeed. Unfortunately, when you start or acquire a new business, it doesn't come with an owner's manual. In The Facts of Business Life, Bill McBean has created a road map and a guide designed to take us all from where we are to where we want to be."
—Jim Stovall, bestselling author of The Ultimate Gift and The Ultimate Financial Plan
"From a banker's perspective, this is a book every business owner should read. The business life-cycle concept alone is worth the price of admission. Bankers will always respond more favorably to clients who can pinpoint their needs, understand their business, market and opportunities. This book shows the client how to do this. The Facts of Business Life is not only a must-read for every business owner, it's a must-read for every banker."
—Blayne Lensen, Vice President of Global Risk Management (ret.), Bank of Nova Scotia (ScotiaBank)
"As a Co-Captain of the 1989 Stanley Cup Champion Calgary Flames, I learned that practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect. The same has held true in my business career. The Facts of Business Life gives you a road map, a plan, a framework to apply to your business so that you employ perfect practice as it relates to your company. The book can be read chronologically or randomly and provides value on the area of focus you wish to zero in on. Read it and win your own championship."
—Jim Peplinski, owner, Jim Peplinski Leasing Inc.; Executive Chairman, Humberview Partners; Vice President of Business Development, Calgary Flames (NHL)
