With an easy and engaging style, this book is a definitive and practical guide that covers every business area. From strategy to finance, management to marketing, and business planning to exit, Guy leaves no stone unturned. The result is an authoritative and invaluable tool for entrepreneurs seeking to navigate the minefield of successful growth. Find out everything you wanted to know about how to build a great business but never had the opportunity to ask.
Not many business books are as large, or as detailed, as this latest book from accountant Guy Rigby.
Just the quotes on the book jacket read like a veritable who’s who of British business. From Nick Jenkings, founder of Moonpig.com to Julie Meyer, founder & CEO of Ariadne Capital to former Dragon James Caan.
The foreword is written by Luke Johnson, the current Chairman of Startup Britain and one of the UKs greatest entrepreneurs, but someone that many will have never heard of as he likes to keep a low profile letting the businesses he owns speak for themselves.
This book – although it would be better to describe it as manual – offers real, tangible and valuable insight into a complete range of business issues, obstacles and challenges on every page.
It really does live up to the promise of delivering value ‘from vision to exit’. Don’t be put off by the title as even if you are five years into running your business it is just as relevant to you as you make key decisions.
This book will sit by the bed, follow me into work and accompany me on weekends away for the next couple of months at least.
I am sure that not many chartered accountants could write something as interesting and useful as Rigby has here and this book.
