Ted’s Recommended Resources
This is a list of tried, true, and trusted resources that I recommend to any entrepreneur. I use many of them when I teach my college level business classes. I’ve used them all and have passed my test for “Presidential Quality”.
Let’s jump in.
Books: Business & Leadership
Never Eat Alone - This is by far the best book ever written on professional networking. More more feeling like a used car salesman after reading Keith’s book.
Never Eat Alone - The fastest, easiest, and most reliable system for getting more clients than you can handle even if you hate marketing.
Friend of a Friend - Understanding the hidden networks that can transform your life and your career.
E-Myth Manager - Stop working IN your business and focus on working ON your business. This was the book that I used to grow FitWell from having just the White House to many other big name clients.
