Entrepreneur-accountant Guy Rigby?s new book From Vision to Exit, which outlines the process of developing a strategy, plans and tactics to help a business succeed, has been published.
The title by the head of entrepreneurial services at accountancy firm Smith & Williamson offers Rigby?s personal insights ? and those of numerous successful entrepreneurs ? on starting and growing a business.
Rigby himself has previously built and sold his own accountancy firm, and served as a director of companies in the IT, property, defence and manufacturing spaces. He recently took part as a judge of the Fast Growth Business Awards, run by Startups.co.uk?s sister title Growing Business.
The new book for entrepreneurs shares personal insights of the start-up process, such as:
? Never underestimate the power of the status quo. Inertia means that it can take time (and additional cash) to achieve your vision and goals.
? Consider meaning as well as money. Work towards a ?triple bottom line? ? valuing people, planet and profit.
? Protect your intellectual property. Don?t let someone else take advantage of your innovation, investment and hard work.
