If you’re an entrepreneur looking to grow your small business, you’ll definitely want to read this book written by the owner of a taxicab company. We know what you’re thinking: Why would the owner of a cab company ever write a book, and what could I possibly learn from reading it? This man started out with a small taxi company and battled his way up to building a multi-million dollar business.
Meet Craig Hughes, Founder and Chairman of Total Transit, Inc., in the Phoenix, AZ area.
Craig knew nothing about the taxi business when he purchased an unsexy, dilapidated cab company in 1984. Since that time, he has grown that business to be the busiest taxi dispatch in the United States. Total Transit does $140 million in business each year and has enjoyed a 35% growth rate over the past 7 years. That is success by any standards!
Learn how to grow your small business
When Craig first came to us, he had an idea for a book that would help entrepreneurs get over the hurdles of moving from the start-up stage to the expansion phase. The purpose of Craig’s book is to inspire small business owners who are cash strapped, spread too thin, and feel trapped by their business to take action that moves them from their current all-consuming, hands-on approach to the freedom of a self-sustaining enterprise. His book aims to teach you how to grow your small business so that you can enjoy true success, and not just wear the title of “small business owner.”
Craig understands the frustrations that small business owners face. There comes a time when they become the biggest obstacle to their company’s growth. Everything comes to a halt until they can solve the problem, call the customer, send the invoice, perform the service, etc. They feel trapped and want the business to start working for them, rather than continue working for the business.
His book, Get Out Of The Way: How To Grow Your Small Business From An All-Consuming, Hands-On Approach To A Self-Sustaining Enterprise, shows business owners and entrepreneurs a way to grow their business while gaining more freedom from its day-to-day demands. The book will be available in August 2017. Mark your calendars. You won’t want to miss this one!
