What’s in the Book?
Author Wendy Dickinson applies her years of experience working with brilliant business owners using the wonderful fable, The Ant and the Grasshopper to uncover time-proven insights to entrepreneurs who want to be wildly successful AND happy.
This insightful book is filled with activities and practical tips for entrepreneurs to build an asset not just create a job.
Looking through the eyes of Ant and Grasshopper, two budding entrepreneurs, you will have the opportunity to avoid common pitfalls such as having a managerial mentality instead of a CEO mindset.
Avoid building a business dependent on the owner, failing to do relational due diligence when hiring friends and family, and don’t forget to prepare an exit plan. Work the Bugs Out will empower you to work the bugs out to build the business of your dreams.
