In The Business Playbook, YEC member Chris Ronzio shares his straightforward, step-by-step system to help entrepreneurs organize the chaos of business and create a thriving business with scalable processes.
About This Book:
Entrepreneur, CEO, or business leader: no matter your title, the success of your company is a responsibility — and weight — that lies squarely on your shoulders. In the beginning, increased control was an asset that bought you peace of mind. But now, without the structure your business needs to thrive, you’re overworked, overwhelmed, and unsure of the path ahead.
Fortunately, everything that makes your company work can be captured and put to work for you.
In The Business Playbook, serial entrepreneur Chris Ronzio walks you through his proven framework for building a playbook: the profile of your business, the people who work in it, the policies that guide it, and the processes that operate it. He shows you how to codify your culture and create a living document that allows you to let go of day-to-day responsibilities and empower your team to run the business without you.
If you want to build a company that doesn’t rely on you putting in more hours, this book will show you the way.
Chris says, "YEC members are serious about scaling their businesses. That’s a given. And we’ve been told for years to work ON the business, not IN it. But while books like The E-Myth inspired you to think about systems, documentation, and building a franchisable business, they didn’t teach you how to do it. The Business Playbook does that. It provides an approachable, instructional 4-part framework for actually documenting what you do, so you can structure and scale your company beyond you."
