Sweat the Small Stuff!: How Doing the Little Things Will Help You Achieve More (Paperback)
How do you buy, build, and sell a business? Can accounting jargon, marketing idiom, or supply chain lingo help your firm be more profitable? What makes a leader successful?
Through his experiences, author Ram Lokan demystifies basic business concepts and describes how they've helped him along his entrepreneurial journey running a chain of supermarkets in East Africa. In Sweat the Small Stuff , you will learn how paying attention to the details helps motivate your team, grow your profits, and expand your business.
Full of interesting and often humorous personal stories about running his business, you'll learn:
- What responding to a customer complaint on the price of corn flakes taught him about supply chain and logistics
- How promoting a cashier earned the trust of the entire company
- Why showing up at a bakery at 4 a.m. every day made him a better leader
Follow Lokan as he reflects on his journey from acquisition to expansion, and why he eventually decided to sell his business.
Future entrepreneurs, disruptors, innovators, and managers will glean from this book the journey that lies ahead and how they can be more successful in growing their business by sweating the small stuff.
