Whether you're an existing business owner seeking to increase your reach or a budding entrepreneur ready to take the next step, this book provides invaluable guidance from experts who have made it happen time and time again.

Packed with content but can lack in depth

It covers a wide range of things to consider when starting and running a business. It is a really dense collection of tips and tricks, which can be quite overwhelming when listened to versus reading at your own pace. I think a printed version of the book is very useful in these cases. The audiobook contains a lot of links and tables read rather verbatim, so be prepared for that. I think the printed version could be a great reference.

There are also long lists of tips and tricks, especially in the first chapters without much depth. The book could benefit from more examples and anecdotes from the authors' lives where each tip is solidified and exemplified.
Especially for later stages of a business that the reader have not experienced first hand yet, painting the picture of how to negotiate a funding round or an exit with a detail level akin to fiction could be really great. Almost like telling it as a story.

The reader is clear, easy to understand, not monotone, lively and generally great to listen to.
