Our book: Tips to apply in 5 minutes
When we wrote our guide to going it alone, we intended it to have a healthy shelf life. But we didn’t expect to read a fresh, new summary a dozen years on! One has just been published and it’s a nice little read.
I met Fern Chang at a small business event recently and she was so engaged and active in my presentation, that I presented her with a book as a gift.
Serendipitously, a few weeks later, she popped up in my inbox announcing that as a hobby she wrote book summaries for Actionable Books and she’d written one for Flying Solo: How to go it alone in business.
Fern’s summary consists of a brief overview of the book along with some key insights that can be readily applied to your business.
She opens with a quote from page 13:
"The happiest soloists succeed because they have the knack for putting work in its proper place alongside the rest of their lives."
And moves on to summarise the traits of a successful soloist, the importance of word-of-mouth referrals, and how and why to create an operations manual for your business.
