The full title of this book by Stan Peake is
Now What?: 50 Ways to Build Your Business in a Crisis
In my review posted on Amazon.co.uk, I gave the book a 3 Stars rating. This means it is Worth Reading.
Here is my book review.
My feelings about this book were a bit like a yo-yo.
I was worried at first. The author tells the story of how he grew his coaching business after breaking his back. I thought it was a bit over long and boastful. The point was that you can turn adversity into something positive.
The next section I thought was very good. The author explains why you need to adopt an opportunity seeking mindset. (If you’re interested, this is a reason why I love studying Jay Abraham’s ideas).
Then the book moves into a list of fairly standard tips and ideas. These are covered very briefly.
If you look, you’ll find quite a few of this type of book on Amazon. The most extensive I can think of while writing this review is Instant Cash Flow by Bradley Sugars (ActionCoach). It’s the only book of his I recommend but it is old and doesn’t include more recent developments like social media.
This current book has been published in the era of the Covid-19 lockdown. I was hoping for something more applicable to this extraordinary situation.
I’m also a business coach, specialising in business owners who feel stuck. I’m always aware of the “not invented here” problem but I’ve tried to be fair.
