About This Book
Made a business mistake that cost a bundle? Just fired a family member? Business owners large and small reveal to Cleveland’s Plain Dealer columnist, Marcia Pledger, their biggest business mistakes from bad hires to bad business partners–and how they fixed them.
In business, everything counts. From who is hired to how much money is spent on pencils, it all matters. A couple of bad decisions can close the doors on anyone who isn’t paying attention or doesn’t know what to watch for.
Over 100 business owners sound the alarm bells on precarious pitfalls in the industry, revealing how, instead of closing their doors, they regrouped and emerged stronger, smarter, and eventually, more profitable.
In this book, readers can learn about entrepreneurs and their errors when it came to: Start Up, Growth, Employees, Finance, Marketing, Family, Customers, and Technology. They will also learn that there is no better person to learn from than a determined entrepreneur who has overcome an issue and moved forward.
