Do you need a RECHARGE?

Most people do. Even the most talented people get bogged down every now and again.

The main cause of business failure is the failure to take action because making the first move can be hard! But you can start now…by reading this book!

Recharge will revitalise your entire approach to business. Each of the 52 performance-enhancing lessons is designed to be read, absorbed and acted on in 60 minutes or less: from your management style to your financial decision-making to self-motivation. Inside you'll find jargon-free information that will help you achieve many of the things you have been putting off for months, or even years.

Written for entrepreneurs, small business owners, executives, managers and employees, Recharge provides simple but powerful tools to:

  • Get you over a hump
  • Get through an issue
  • Get fired up
  • Get into action!

This is a seriously good book. I havn't got a business education but I run a successful business. This book was a huge help.

What a great little book. This so much more useful that all the "great" business books I have read. It walks you through the simple basics of management in a way that you just want to get on with it. Inspiring stuff.
