)-- Amazon best-selling business book The Small Business Lifecycle: A Guide for Taking the Rights Steps at the Right Time to Grow Your Small Business just got even better. Initially only available in Kindle edition, the popular small business owner’s guide is now available on Amazon.com in print as well.
Debuting at #1 in the Amazon Kindle store upon its release at the end of March, the ebook has received various accolades across the web by small business owners and entrepreneurs as an important guide for all business owners looking to grow their business. The re-formatted and expanded print edition makes it even easier for business owners to understand how small and micro-businesses grow and what steps to take at the right time to ensure smart and strategic business growth in any industry.
“If you've been thinking about starting your own business, The Small Business Lifecycle willl help you figure where to start and get a foothold in a market,” said author Charlie Gilkey. “While there are some differences in starting an online business versus starting a traditional small businesses, both of them share the same business lifecycle.”
Gilkey has spent the past few years refining his concept of the small business lifecycle, borrowing concepts from well-known, proven entrepreneurs and leaders and combining them with his own personal experiences coaching business owners from many different industries with his company Productive Flourishing.
Helpful for both beginners and seasoned business owners, Gilkey presents a different set of challenges and solutions in each stage of the five-stage cycle, creating a sort of treatise on how small businesses are run. This thorough guide includes questions to ask before starting a small business, how to get a foothold in the market and choose the right audience, why some successful products actually cause business owners to lose momentum, where small businesses get stuck and stop growing, and how not to break a successful, scalable business.
“As you read The Small Business Lifecycle you’ll be able to recognize where you’re at with your business,” said Srinivas Rao in a book review on Amazon.com. “Not only that, Charlie gives you actionable ideas for how to thrive in each phase, and what’s necessary to get to the next one. He also talks you through the pitfalls of each cycle. While the book is short, don’t be fooled by its simplicity. You will walk away with ideas, insights, and most importantly actions that you can take.”
The Small Business Lifecycle is currently available on Amazon for $9.49 in print. To celebrate the launch of the print version, the Kindle edition will be free until Tuesday, June 11 at midnight Pacific Time. Buy the book at bit.ly/sblonpr.
