    Excerpt from the Book:
    "So, why read this book? Simple. It is a book that will give you practical advice on how to start up and grow a business. And that advice is not based on theory, or academia, it is based on my own personal experience. I have been involved in six start-ups; the first two I was the sales guy, the next two I was the boss, and the final two I co-own with my business partner and friend James. Family businesses, partnerships, private enterprises, social enterprises, big corporates… I have been involved in them all. I have been there at the start-up stage, the growth stage but thankfully never at the decline stage, and I don't talk about that in this book because neither you nor I ever want to find ourselves in that position. That stage is largely irreversible and this is about avoiding it!

    This book is about reality - how it is on the ground - and when you read it, you will understand how to grow a business and what it takes to succeed."

    5.0 out of 5 stars The best business book I've bought, a must have for all entrepreneurs
    By Mrs S A Brown on 17 May 2016

    Having recently made the decision to leap from the security of employment to the scary world of self-employment I've had a few heart stopping moments where I thought "what have I done....is this the right thing for me.....can I do this?" As soon as I started reading Philips book I was sure I have done the right thing and yes I can do this! It's a straight talking book, no business jargon and is full of really valuable advice from someone who's already done it, very successfully. While you can easily read the book in a couple of hours I know it's one that I'll be reading again and again in the months ahead, it's like having a business mentor on the bedside table!
