I know that video content is fun and engaging for many of us, but I also appreciate wanting to get your business inspiration while you’re out jogging, commuting, or taking care of errands.

That’s why I’m so excited to introduce to you the Off The Charts Business Podcast.

We’re kicking things off with a couple of classic episodes from our archives, so if you’re new to me it’s the perfect way to catch up on all the good episodes from the past few months!

And I also decided to introduce a new feature as part of the podcast. I’m bringing back the book reviews!

I’m a bookworm and I love to unwind in a bubble bath with a good book (fiction and non-fiction)… and I also love to reflect on the books that I read, and pass on all the good stuff I learn along the way.

Book Review Built To Sell

In this week’s book review I’m talking about a great book called “Built To Sell”, which is written for people who want to sell their businesses… OR who want to be able to scale without becoming a bottleneck in their company.

Built To Sell book

I know this applies to so many of us entrepreneurs, so even if you never plan to sell your business I still highly recommend you to read this book.

But whether you have time to sit down with this sweet little gem of a book or not, at least take 5 minutes to listen to my review and glean the best tidbits for your own business.

In this first review, I look at Built to Sell by John Warrillow.

Whether or not you’d like to sell your business, this book can help you understand how to optimize and scale your business.

    Thanks for such a great podcast Nathalie! I haven’t read Built to Sell yet but I remember Laura Roeder mentioning it a while back and she also said it’s a brilliant book.

    What I’ve come to realise is that whilst it’s great to build a personal brand or an online business that’s based around us, it’s also important to scale the business for long term growth. Your podcast reminded me of how important it is to do that. What resonated with me the most was the point about hiring a sales team and not doing all of the marketing on my own. Great stuff!

      Yay Vicky! I’m so glad this sparked some ideas for you in your own business. I think the model that most of us “see from the outside” is that a solopreneur is doing it all. But actually, there tends to be a team behind the brand – even if it is a personal brand. :)

      Thanks for your comment!! :)

      Aww thank you so much Jacqueline! You’re not the first to mention that, which makes me want to do more audio content and lead to this podcast, woohoo! :)
