Success in business has little to do with investment capital, a business plan or office space. Success comes from applying the four-part profit principle. Discover how you can turn what you know into what you do, and launch a successful, sustainable venture without spending (or borrowing) a cent. It’s a process that's simpler than you think and already within reach.
Most books on starting a business don't extend further than the practicalities: plans, finance, accounting, equipment and so on. There are so many books on this topic, and their advice is often similar and predictable; rarely do they offer a new perspective or directions for a smarter approach. The motivational books that also serve this market may read well, but they often lack the substance on which to base sound business decisions and actions.
If you want to run your own business and don't already, stop and ask yourself why not? The Profit Principle is a modern classic that will revolutionise your thinking on what it takes to succeed and inspire you to get started.
"Joe Vitale has created an entertaining, educational, and motivational manual-with the help of P.T. Barnum-that belongs in every hotel room alongside the Bible. Then, guests might read his inspirational book first, and give thanks to God for this worthy discovery."
—Alan Abel, media hoaxer, author, consultantand lecturer on "Using Your Wits to Win"
"If you're going to excel in business, learning about a showman like Barnum and applying some of the lessons he taught can give you valuable insights. Joe Vitale has captured ten of these lessons (he calls them 'rings of power') and shows how you can apply them in a way that will open your eyes and stretch your imagination. There's a lot of money-making and fun wisdom here."
—Joseph Sugarman, Chairman, BluBlocker Corporation
"Finally someone does it!!! Joe Vitale reveals the REAL P.T. Barnum! Vitale highlights the outrageously astute marketing of Barnum. Barnum's driving belief certainly was that there IS a customer 'born' every minute. You will glean a number of useful 'new' marketing ideas that you can instantly use in your business. And you will learn about one of the savviest marketers of a time gone by. Fun, exciting, insightful, and packed with ideas! Genius!"
—Kevin Hogan, author of The Science of Influence and The Psychology of Persuasion
"I love this book. If you'd like to know the real story about one of the most fascinating characters in American history, told by a master storyteller (and the person who probably knows more about him than anyone else), read this book. Barnum is not the guy portrayed by the legend attached to his name. He is much, much more, and Vitale tells his story with the can't-put-it-down passion and excitement he's become so well known for."
—Bill Harris, President, Centerpointe Research Institute
