Karma & the Art of Business
I believe that anyone is capable of running a business and treating employees fairly at the same time. I wrote this book in 2002 for the purpose of teaching individuals the tricks of the trade. My book covers everything from Human Resource Management to writing a Business Plan.
This little book brings a fresh approach to the often tedious task of preparing a business plan and then running the company that is the result of that plan. Author Christina M. Anastasia knows first hand what she’s talking about. With a masters degree in organizational management, she has written dozens of business plans and started several successful companies and last year was named one of the top 100 business women by Colorado Biz magazine.
What makes this book different is that Anastasia answers the “why” and “how” questions as she recounts her experiences in starting and running a small business. Of particular importance is her advice on finding and motivating the employees who can take an ordinary company to a high level of accomplishment.
In one eye opening section of the book, she discusses the paramount importance of building successful customers through the use of karma. “Don’t argue with a customer. Offer solutions.” “A satisfied customer will tell ten other people.”
Her highly readable anecdotes lead the reader through the essential thought processes and preliminary planning necessary for a success business venture. She answers questions you never thought to ask.
After this spirited warm-up comes the more conventional step-by-step pages of business plan forms to use in preparing your plan and a long list of sources where emerging small businesses can turn for advice and financial aid. The books comes with a CD version.
