Publisher's Summary

Forget the fluff. It's only the facts in this book. Frustrated with going through business book after business book and not finding actionable advice? This book sets out to create a blueprint for entrepreneurs to build their own business.
The original concept behind the book was for a father to teach his children how to create a company that they could run and grow on their own - in his absence. This was meant for their eyes only, so it includes hardcore examples on how to build a business. The curtain is pulled back. Stan uses real examples from real projects that allow you to see how it can be done.


This is a must-have book that stands apart from every other business journal out there.
Actionable advice - real steps you can take to better your business.
How to start a company - or how to grow a company.
Real numbers. Real projects. No theory. No bullshit.
Dedicated from a father to his kids. Actual advice that works.

Why you should listen to this book? Stan Genadek is a 31-year veteran in the service industry who has built and ran a multi-million dollar corporation. He wrote this book so his kids could do the same if they choose.
No theory, no suggestions. Just hardcore. This is what worked. Period. End of story. If you were starting all over again and wanted to avoid the mistakes that plague most companies, here is how to do it.
"You get to borrow this book until my kids need it." - Stan Genadek

Good for professional service companies

This book is straight and to the point. No fluff. I definitely had a handful of action items to attend to after reading. It’s a good book for anyone that is within the first 3 years of operating their business. 95% of the “story” follows the writer’s landscaping and construction company. So if you are in a different business, it is still useful but you will need to convert the stories into your business scenario. Read it as if you are getting mentored by someone in a different industry. Overall it was worth reading. If you don’t have a professional services component of your business (manufacturing, restaurants, entertainment, etc) you may not find it as useful.
