Just a quick roundup of AMACOM Books that would be great resources for small businesses.
So what if I am my HR department?
Check out The Manager’s Guide to HR by Max Muller which gives every manager to need-to-know information without reading those $80 professional tomes.
So do I need a website?
Check out Digital Engagement by online marketing pioneers Leland Harden and Bob Heyman, which tells you what you need, how to brand, how to get the message out, and best of all, what really works and the best practices to make them work hard.
How do I find new clients or service providers?
Check out How to Succeed in Business Using LinkedIn by Eric Butow and Kathleen Taylor which gives you the low-down on the world’s #1 business social networking website. It tells you how to make connections, find new people, find service providers (with recommendations), and put your best business foot forward on this great site.
So what am I supposed to do to make my business eco-friendly?
Check out The Sustainable Enterprise Fieldbook edited by Jeana Wirtenberg, Ph.D., William G. Russell, and David Lipsky, Ph.D. It covers everything from leadership to strategy, implementation to management, employee engagement to metrics.
I’m an entrepreneur, I don’t have time to read. I don’t have time for anything!
Check out Real-World Time Management, Second Edition by Roy Alexander and Michael S. Dobson. It’s a small book (about 100 pages) but it packs a lot of information in there and the time you spent reading it will give you time to do a lot more.
I hope these help you on your way to small business success. Good luck!
