Bob Pritchett started his first business at age six. In high school, he ran a software company that sold to Fortune 500 companies. By the age of 20, he had cofounded Logos Research Systems, Inc. He has seen the ups of high profits and the downs of a failed IPO attempt. Pritchett's successes and failures led him to write Fire Someone Today. Far from a treatise on giving employees the axe, Fire Someone Today uses four categories-People, Leadership, Finance, and Operations-to cover a wide range of issues unique to the more than 20 million small business owners in the United States. Filled with hands-on advice and practical examples from real businesses, the book takes a no-nonsense approach to the uncomfortable decisions and actions that every manager, business owner, or entrepreneur must face.
Should you take the time to visit customers and suppliers in person? Absolutely.
Who makes the best accountant? A pessimist.
What do you do with a good employee who is a jerk? Fire him
Whether you are a young company that's just starting out or a mature business looking to grow, Bob pritchett's hands-on advice and practical examples are a must-read for every manager, business owner, and entrepreneur.
Inside this book, you will not find Thirteen Incontrovertible Laws of Excellence. You won't find motivational cliches to frame and put on your desk. And there are no step-by-step instructions for writing a business plan.
Instead, in "Fire Someone Today," you'll read what Pritchett has discovered through his years of experience as an entrepreneur and small business owner. It is a book about what to do, what not to do, and why. For "your" business, it could be that one piece of advice that makes all the difference . . . and even give you a few laughs along the way.
