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.

Must Read Material!

This is literally a line by line process teaching you how to scale a business and the teachers aren't just some random coach trying to make money, they have walked the walk. Great read!!!

Very, Very High Quality

I had the pleasure of meeting the author, David Finkel, earlier this year at one of his Maui Mastermind conferences. I took notice of the way he carried himself, engaged with his customers, and the quality and truth to what he said. In short, I was impressed — you don't come across many people like him.

That experience led me to explore his work, including Scale. Like David himself, this book is tightly packed with useful insight on what is required to grow and scale a business. He offers powerful but pragmatic steps to take to take your business and your ability to grow a business to the next level. Taking the time to read/listen to Scale is what David would call an "A Level" task — a task involving a relatively small time investment that makes a big impact in pushing your company forward.

Shazam

Not only is this book well written, and flow…. It is jam packed with critical information necessary to scale any business type. I wish I had this information 30 years ago, get this book and start running with the Big Dogs.

Not for small business owners

This book is more for big companies, not for small business owners. Overall, it doesn’t give you a clear vision on the goal.

Best of this genre

Every paragraph was loaded with useful tips and information to help grow my business. Only issue is the website they mention that you can use as a toolkit is no longer up.
