Cover of: Fire someone today | Bob Pritchett

About the Book

Far from a treatise on giving employees the axe, Fire Someone Today uses four categories -- People, Leadership, Finance, and Operations -- to cover a wide range of issues unique to the more than 20 million small business owners in the United States. Filled with hands-on advice and practical examples from real businesses, the book takes a no-nonsense approach to the uncomfortable decisions and actions that every manager, business owner, or entrepreneur must face. In this book, you'll read what Pritchett has discovered through his years of experience as an entrepreneur and small business owner. It is a book about what to do, what not to do, and why. - Publisher.

Table of Contents

Fire someone today
You are the reason you are in business
Nobody loves your baby like you do
There can be only one : plan for your partner's departure
Don't hire anyone you haven't interviewed
Cash is king
Quality, price, service : prioritize
Nobody needs an optimistic accountant
You can always find 5%
Profit is why you are in business
If you are not growing, you are shrinking
Good systems protect you from the perfect employee
The one who writes wins
Don't fly blind, build a dashboard
Visit everyone in person
Press is yours if you ask, and if you want it
In acquisitions the buyer is the loser
Buy lunch
Winning takes 51%
Some people are your greatest assets
Business is a serious game.
