Lauren Bacon and Emira Mears Present

The Boss of You

It's a book. It's a blog. It's a guide to running a business your way.

Read a Sample Chapter

March 17th, 2008 by Lauren · No Comments

Lately it seems like our little website is growing bigger by the day. The latest addition is a sample chapter: You can now download a PDF version of the Table of Contents, Introduction and first chapter, all totally free! The first chapter, “Define Your Vision,” guides you through three key exercises: Defining your business goals, establishing your personal measures of success, and identifying your skills, strengths, and passions.

Every entrepreneur will have different responses to these exercises: Where one person may be motivated by a desire for flexible work hours, another will be driven by her passion for a particular type of work, or by the simple ambition to call the shots. Understanding your motivations and values is critical groundwork for every business owner, because it’s only when your personal vision is attained that you’ll feel truly successful.

We hope you enjoy this sneak peek at our baby — and once you’ve had a look, please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!
