The Personal MBA: A World-Class Business Education in a Single Volume

Rs. 2,590.00

Josh Kaufman

 

Audie Award Nominee, Business and Educational, 2013

 

“File this book under NO EXCUSES. After you’ve read it, you won’t be open to people telling you that you’re not smart enough, not insightful enough, or not learned enough to do work that matters. Josh takes you on a worthwhile tour of the key ideas in business.”
Seth Godin, bestselling author, This Is Marketing

 

This book goes far beyond business: I used the marketing, sales, and communication principles in this book to complete my PhD and land a highly competitive postdoc and professorship at a world-class research university. Whatever you do for a living, this book will help you do it even better ― Dr. Zachary Gagnon, Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University

 

A masterpiece. This is the ‘START HERE’ book I recommend to everyone interested in business. An amazing overview of everything you need to know. Covers all of the basics, minus buzz-words and fluff. One of the most inspiring things I’ve read in years ― Derek Sivers, founder of CDbaby.com and bestselling author of Anything You Want

 

I graduated with an MBA in 2005 before I encountered The Personal MBA, but I still felt like I didn’t know anything about business. In retrospect, I wish I had read this book before enrolling in an MBA program-it would’ve helped me be more mindful while completing my degree. Who knows . . . I might have skipped the MBA completely. This is easily the best foundational business book available. ― Roger Hui, Technical Account Manager, RedHat, Inc.

Many people assume they need to attend business school to learn how to build a successful business or advance in their career. That’s not true. The vast majority of modern business practice requires little more than common sense, simple arithmetic, and knowledge of a few very important ideas and principles.

The Personal MBA  provides a clear overview of the essentials of every major business topic: entrepreneurship, product development, marketing, sales, negotiation, accounting, finance, productivity, communication, psychology, leadership, systems design, analysis, and operations management…all in one comprehensive volume.

Inside you’ll learn concepts such as:

The 5 Parts of Every Business: You can understand and improve any business, large or small, by focusing on five fundamental topics.
The 12 Forms of Value: Products and services are only two of the twelve ways you can create value for your customers.
4 Methods to Increase Revenue: There are only four ways for a business to bring in more money. Do you know what they are?

Business degrees are often a poor investment, but business skills are always useful, no matter how you acquire them.

The Personal MBA will help you do great work, make good decisions, and take full advantage of your skills, abilities, and available opportunities–no matter what you do (or would like to do) for a living.
