I recently had the pleasure of taking some time off to read, and picked up, out of the many books in my home library, a book by Shawn and Rachael Doyle, two successful entrepreneurs looking to inspire like minded go-getters to ignite their passions and drive their entrepreneurial spirit to the next level.
The 10 Jolts in summary are as follows:
#1 Have a Mission & a Purpose - speaks about creating direction in your business, developing your Unique Selling Propositions, and how exactly to craft them
#2 Setting Goals - The ins and outs of goal setting, how to do it and drive ahead!
#3 Managing Your Time - Emphasis on the importance of time and how best to fully utilise the limited hours we have a day.
#4 Know Your Resource - The various types of resources available at our finger-tips to assist with our plans i.e. Learning resources, information resources and mentors including tips of where to find these resources
#5 Be a Great Networker - The most effective ways of developing relationships to aid business growth
#6 Managing Your Energy - How to develop a deep level of energy to power you through all highs and lows whilst building our business
#7 Money Is Motivation - Putting things in perspective on money and how to grow it through various means, this chapter gives strategies that all great business tap on to grow
#8 Using Creativity in Your Business - Various tips and tricks to get the creative juices flowing to overcome potential challenges in business
#9 Managing Your Thinking - How to stay positive, speak positive, think positive and see growth in your business
#10 Keep Growing - The importance of developing yourself and others, to enhance your abilities in business and in life.
They go on to provide a final jolt, however I'll leave this bit up to you to find out at the end of the book.
I've personally gained quite a lot of insights in this book, and it's helped to trigger quite a number of tangible ideas which are implementable in business.
This book is fantastic for those whom are just starting up their business or have hit a roadblock in their businesses and need a fresh perspective and new directions, to take your business to the next level!
