Publisher's Summary

An astonishing 94.6 percent of businesses fail to sell. They close at an enormous cost to the owner, their family, their staff and the economy. Most business owners realise too late that there are only two destinations for any business: a sale or closure. You’ve got to build to '$ell'.

Sweat, Scale, Sell shares real business-building stories about how ordinary business owners took charge of their fate using the Asset of Value™ method.

With Pavlo Phitidis, they sweated to reshape their business to be relevant to a changing world; they built a solid foundation for scale; and then they pressed hard to ramp up growth in preparation for sale to create a business any buyer would want.

Pavlo draws on 25 years of direct experience in conceptualising and building businesses across four continents. Having started, built and sold 12 businesses generating in excess of $300m, he founded the Asset of Value™ method, a practical approach to build a winning business.

As co-founder of Aurik, he has worked with over 2,000 established businesses across most sectors in the economy, from family businesses to partnerships to sole business owners.

Sweat, Scale, Sell is audaciously optimistic as it shows every business owner and entrepreneur where to find growth in a no-growth economy, as well as how to make an impact and secure big returns.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

What they don’t teach you at Harvard Business School or any other

I have read or listened to hundreds of business books over the past few decades. This is one of the most remarkable, practical, pragmatic and life-changing of them all. The advice and insights seem like common sense but are priceless. Highly recommended must read for every business owner.

Inspiring book to review how and why we are in business

Loved the layout and thought provoking content. Using real experiences to explain and drive the points home.

I read the book and got the audio book to soak it all up.
