Publisher's Summary

Business owners want growth but fear it will take over their lives. Surprisingly, the only way to truly grow your company is to reduce its reliance on you - to scale. Jeff Hoffman and David Finkel offer a blueprint to rapidly grow your business while also gaining more freedom. Based on their own experiences starting, scaling, and effectively exiting from multiple successful companies, they provide seven clear principles that will help you determine the best strategy for growth in your company. They show you how to execute in the face of conflicting demands and multiple responsibilities. And they show you how to enjoy the freedom that comes from owning a business - without it owning you.

Informative! Action steps included!

For the business owner that needs help WITHIN the organization. There are dozens of other books relating to business structure, systemization, management, prioritizing... etc. However, this is the BEST! It combines all the important aspects of those books then clarifies the points with actionable tips. There is no fluff, banter, or unnecessarily long stories. I didn't fast forward once for this book! ❤️

An EMBA for Dollars not Thousands

Would you listen to Scale again? Why?

This is a great book with actionable, simple tools from two people who have learned the lessons the hard way and then put them into action to great success. It is well done and succinct. I'm going to suggest this to accelerators and incubators.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Scale?

The tool box.

Which character – as performed by David Finkel – was your favorite?

Jeff of course, but I relate more with him.

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