Pavlo Phitidis – our small business guru – wants YOU to help him name his book
Pavlo Phitidis; I thought he was a smart guy… You don’t make money out of writing books… He looks like he lost sleep; he’s grumpier than normal…Bruce Whitfield, The Money Show
His publishers gave him a list of suggested titles.
They all suck.
It’s some of the world's worst ideas for a book title! They’ve given him some terrible ideas!Bruce Whitfield, The Money Show
Phitidis gave a "30-second elevator pitch" and the suggestions – some good, some bad and some pretty darn ugly - started flooding in.
The 30-second pitch
94.6% of business started, fail to sell. They close at tremendous cost to the business owner, the family, the people employed and the society within which they operated. I thought that there was a reason for this. And there was! We’re not taught how to build businesses. We’re not given insights into how to build businesses practically and realistically. This book gives the secret sauce on how to take a good business, double its size, treble its size and ensure that down the line you eventually turn it into your greatest wealth-producing asset, and get it sold!Pavlo Phitidis, founder - Aurik Business Accelerator
