I have been in business for over three years and consider myself to be fairly knowledgeable about various applications, programs and help that is out there. Despite this I still found things in this book that caught my attention and made me think “gosh, I didn’t know about/realise that”.
Helen’s book is jam-packed with lots of great tips and tools that any self-respecting business person would (and should) take heed of. OK, maybe they won’t be exactly right for you and your business but they will make you think “if this isn’t quite right for me, what would be?”
On my first quick flick through I noted down at least eight things that I wanted to look into further – and that was just first impressions. It wasn’t just applications though, Helen has sensible and useful thoughts on how to help you make your business run smoother and more effectively.
I feel that this book is well worth the investment – even if you only take away eight things (and I am sure you’d find more).
