What makes some businesses thrive against all odds while others, with seemingly every advantage at their disposal, fail? What determines the difference between great leaders who personify personal and professional success and those who constantly seek the latest and greatest solutions only to find themselves forever behind the eight ball? In his book, The Business Voyage, successful entrepreneur and adventurer, Jonathan Blain, reveals secrets of success. Specifically, he outlines and explains the actions business leaders and entrepreneurs need to take to achieve the business success and personal fulfillment they seek. The starting point is self-understanding and awareness, a vital and underused element of personal and professional success, where Blain explores the relationship between work and personal life and how to achieve balance between the two. He then looks at the functional aspects of business from conception through death. He warns of pitfalls and gives direction on how to avoid them, all the while offering practical advice and visionary concepts that make sense of the often chaotic and unpredictable business world. As a successful businessman himself, Blain is acutely aware of the time constraints, information overload, and necessity to stay ahead of the competition that business leaders face today. His commentary approach is fast-paced as he metes out ideas and advice in easy-to-assimilate chunks that readers can mix and match for a customized solution to their own distinctive needs. He uses inspiring quotations and several illuminating real-life stories to show that success can come to anyone who wants it and takes the necessary steps to achieve it. Finally, he puts it alltogether in a business blueprint that is applicable for all businesses. After reading The Business Voyage, you will have at your disposal, a new, uplifting perspective and an arsenal of concepts to formulate your own plan, perfectly suited to your unique voyage.
