Business Books by Jean Sifleet
Business Attorney & Three-Time Entrepreneur
IshiftTM puts you in the driver's seat for business innovation.
IshiftTM provides tips to mentally "shift" gears. According to the author, Business Attorney and entrepreneur, Jean Sifleet, "This shifting is a learned skill similar to using a stick shift in a car. Just like you learn to drive a car in different road conditions, IshiftTM helps you learn how to drive your business in the changing market conditions." Business innovation is critical as global forces are reshaping our economy. As we push to innovate, it's smart to learn from the patterns of the past and the experience of others.
Sifleet says that she wrote IshiftTM in a quick read format because "Most business people are just too busy to stay up to date on innovative business practices and figure out what will work in their business. It's hard to know what to do to stay competitive in the rapidly changing world."
IshiftTM also addresses the conflict between running a business (maintaining status quo) and innovating (creative problem solving). Business people need to shift smoothly between modes. On one extreme, they need to cut costs and control operations. On the other extreme, they need to inspire innovation and creativity. In between, they need to keep operations stable and not confuse customers and employees.
As the steady erosion of "corporate jobs" continues, many are turning to entrepreneurship as a solution.
In Smart Fast - Running Your Business, Staying Out of Trouble, business attorney, entrepreneur and author Jean Sifleet shares what she's learned in managing multiple career transitions, from big corporations to running small businesses. Successfully adapting requires re-inventing yourself. Skills do transfer, but it takes hard work and new approaches.
This book is a must-have for anyone who is going from employee to entrepreneur. Whether the transition is planned or unplanned, you'll learn how to think like a business owner as you adapt to the changing economic environment.
If you know someone who is starting a new phase of their work life, Smart Fast - Running Your Business, Staying Out of Trouble makes a great gift. It is easy to read and provides practical information about how to avoid the pitfalls.
