If you’re a business owner or are considering starting your own business, I’d recommend reading The One-Minute Entrepreneur — or listening to the audiobook like I did. Written in a story form, it’s a quick read that’s packed with a wealth of wisdom regarding foundational principles that should guide business owners.
It’s easy to sometimes forget the big picture and what really matters in the midst of the busyness of business demands and life. This story portrays how you can find blessing in making wise decisions and how losing your focus can ruin your family, health, marriage, and business in the process.
I especially appreciated the emphasis on having your priorities in order and not neglecting your family in order to climb the corporate ladder or advance your business. This is a message that is often overlooked in business books. In addition, I appreciated the words of advice on treating your employees well, not losing sight of the big picture, being a giver, using your position of leadership for good, and leaving a legacy.
