What’s your entrepreneurial profile?

Do you have what it takes to build a great business?

In this book, three prominent business leaders and entrepreneurs—now venture capitalists and CEO advisers—share the qualities that surface again and again in those who successfully achieve their goals. The common traits? Heart, smarts, guts, and luck.

After interviewing and researching hundreds of business-builders across the globe, the authors found that every one of them—from young founder to seasoned CEO—holds a combination of these four attributes. Indeed each of us tends to be biased toward one of these traits in our decision-making, and figuring out which trait drives you will lead to greater self-awareness and likelihood of success in starting and growing a business.

So are you:
• Heart-dominant, like renowned chef Alice Waters or Starbucks’s Howard Schultz?
• Smarts-dominant, like Jeff Bezos of Amazon or legendary investor Warren Buffett?
• Guts-dominant, like Nelson Mandela or Virgin’s Richard Branson?
• Or are you most defined by the luck trait, like Tony Hsieh of Zappos (and a surprisingly high proportion of other successful entrepreneurs)?

Heart, Smarts, Guts, and Luck includes the first Entrepreneurial Aptitude Test (E.A.T), a simple tool to help determine your specific profile.

Though no single archetype for entrepreneurial success exists, this book will help you understand which traits to “dial up” or “dial down” to realize your full potential, and when these traits are most and least helpful (or even detrimental) during critical points of a company lifecycle. Not only will you know how to build a better business faster, you’ll also take your natural leadership style to the next level.

There are few businesses as glamorous as owning a bar or club. You’ll be the proprietor of the establishment where people meet, greet, eat and drink. It’ll be a home away from home for some of your customers, and you’ll be the ruler of this social roost.

The profit potential for bars is incredible. By taking a $20 bottle of liquor, and selling it an ounce at a time for $1.50 and up, you can make as much as $192 per bottle. That’s a whopping 800 percent return on your investment!

Owning your own bar or club can mean long hours, meticulous attention to detail, giving up vacations and weekends, and sometimes dealing with unruly customers. But if you have a clear vision, do your homework, and learn the ins and outs of the business, it can also translate into a rewarding and financially successful enterprise. If you’re friendly, outgoing, like people and have good business sense, you’re already well on your way.

Our step-by-step guide will help you turn your dream into a moneymaking reality. We cover the several types of bars you can open–neighborhood bar, sports bar, brewpub, wine or martini bar, and nightclub–and how to get those bar stools filled with happy customers. The author explains step by step everything you need to know before opening your doors. Topics covered include how to:

•Research your target market
•Find the perfect location
•Hire a knowledgeable staff
•Navigate the red tape that accompanies serving alcohol and food
•Understand the logistics of inventory and equipping your bar
•Compete with other bars and nightlife venues
•Keep your clients entertained–and get them to make more purchases–once they’re in your bar
•And much more!

We share insider tips to increase your bottom line and make your venture a success. This easy-to-use guide also includes useful sample forms, cost-cutting ideas, common mistakes to avoid, and additional resources, plus step-by-step instructions, checklists, and work sheets that will guide you through every aspect of the start-up process. Order this book today and start living your dream.
