Thirty Essentials: Sustainable Success

By Andrew Laurie

Get the most out of owning a business with these thirty practical steps to attaining financial and personal freedom and business success.

When your business depends on your management to survive, it often means compromising your lifestyle in favour of success. But what business owners don’t often realise is that this dependence not only limits their freedom, but it also limits the growth and development of the business itself.

Top business coach and ex-CEO of a multi-billion dollar company, Andrew Laurie, explains how you can release yourself from day-to-day management, so as to reap the benefits of business ownership.  

A simple and effective guidebook, Thirty Essentials: Sustainable Success outlines the steps of handing over the management of a business and, crucially, guides you through the challenges that will inevitably arise. It also assists you in deciding how to spend your time after stepping back; both in appropriate continuing involvement in the business and in other activities external to it.  

Thirty Essentials: Sustainable Success is an invaluable guide to attaining the freedom that business ownership offers and to ensuring that your business can truly achieve its potential.
