    People starting out in business tend to seek step-by-step formulas or rules, but in reality there are no magic bullets. Rather, says veteran company-builder Norm Brodsky, there's a mentality that helps street- smart entrepreneurs solve problems and pursue opportunities as they arise. Brodsky shares his hard-earned wisdom every month in Inc. magazine, in the hugely popular "Street Smarts" column he cowrites with Bo Burlingham. Now they've adapted their best advice into a comprehensive guide for anyone running a small business.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Street Smarts the most enjoyable?

    The story and simplicity of presenting numbers that could be complicated


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author of the book because he told his whole story with the success and mistakes


    What does Sean Pratt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    For me he makes is so easy for me to track conversations and he knows how to express what is being is being stated bringing the story to life for me.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Know your numbers makes good blood - not knowing them brings death


    Any additional comments?

    Really, if you are an Entrepreneur and finance is just not part of what you understand or even care that much about. Then this is for you because he goes right to where the rubber meets the road and stays there so you will understand the most important issue.

    In his sixth fable, best-selling author Patrick Lencioni takes on a topic that almost everyone can relate to: the causes of a miserable job. Millions of workers, even those who have carefully chosen careers based on true passions and interests, dread going to work, suffering each day as they trudge to jobs that make them cynical, weary, and frustrated. It is a simple fact of business life that any job, from investment banker to dishwasher, can become miserable.

    John says: "Insightful, simple look at all employee's needs"
    "Every person who is involved with others READ IT!"

    Story

    "If you or I are part of any kind of organization we would do well to know and deal with these 3 signs. This is for all of us at all levels of the organization from the CEO to the person who empties the trash at night.
    1. We must be known as a person by someone
    2. We must know how our work impacts the lives of others
    3. We must know how we are doing and be able to assess that our selves

    You WILL gain valuable insights to people from understanding what Patrick has written in this book. You can understand what we need as people for our own growth and to assist others too.
    Tim"
