Everyone loves a good story, but you dont often find them in business books. When Jim Plouffe set out to share his success secrets with small business owners, he chose story telling instead of the typical methods of a first person account or fact-based with case histories. The result is a personal, vivid, and inspirational story about friends in business. An instant classic, "If I Was Going There I Wouldn t Want to Start from Here" may have a strange title, but it is an engaging, fun, easy to read book filled with timeless wisdom for small business owners. Following the story telling traditions of books such as "The Richest Man in Babylon", this book has believable characters and situations that can be applied to any small business. The setting is Detroit Michigan in the 1980 s, and the characters include Jim who is starting a distribution business, Pete who owns a restaurant and is a partner in a gym, a chef named Pierre, Jack the trainer, and several others. Wit and wisdom are served up in healthy portions in Pete s 50 s diner as Jim discovers and then teaches his 10 rules for small business success, 3 power questions, and a unique management style. The stories share what is important when starting a business, growing a business, surviving hard times, and transferring a business to new owners. The business principles and practices demonstrated through engaging stories will help any small business succeed. Readers will put the book down and instantly be able to apply what was learned. As a bonus, the rules are included as tear out pages in the back. One reader stated This may well be the last book on management principles and practices I will ever need. Jim Plouffe, the author, has made millions in several successful small businesses and is now passing on his secrets to the next generation in a fun and entertaining way.
