Beyond Booked Solid
Author: Michael Port
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: Mandy Leonard
Summary:There are simple and effective ways to expand your business while maintaining a balance in your personal life.
Michael Port’s comment “...working on your business, while working in your business, while working on yourself” encapsulates the core theme of his new book “Beyond Booked Solid”. With so many books coming out these days about the latest leadership techniques and management practices it’s refreshing to read a book which will take you back to basics and help you to re-focus on the core functions of your business.
Picking up where his previous book “Book Yourself Solid” left off, Michael Port reminds readers that there are simple and effective ways to expand your business while maintaining a balance in your personal life. Throughout the book he takes the reader through the processes of designing effective systems for leadership, project management etc.
With advice and usable frameworks Michael Port provides the tools that both corporate professionals and those in business for themselves can use to allow their business to run effectively and profitably while still leaving time for personal projects.
Bolstered by real-life examples of businesses that have successfully implemented these kinds of techniques, Michael also draws on the work of many authors including Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Barry Schwartz and Scott Berkun and shows how the ideas presented by these authors can apply to his core ideas.
The strategies, techniques and tips provided by Michael in this book are wonderfully balanced with pertinent philosophical insights which blend together to show the reader how to do more of the things that you enjoy while working less for your business to expand.
