A fresh, heart-to-heart talk with someone who has learned how to manage without being manic.
“No fancy phrases, no self-help jargon, no posturing. Reading Paul Winans’ book is like sitting down with a successful friend and “picking his brain” about how to successfully run a business. Certainly a focus is on remodeling, with some trade-specific commentary, but the lessons learned (and Winans is refreshingly candid about learning some of those lessons from mistakes) are relevant to anyone who’s charged with moving a project forward.
What I especially liked was his obvious concern about being a good person as well as a good boss. While we all can’t be business entrepreneurs, we can appreciate the value of being engaged members of our communities, which is another theme in the book.
My background is in the nonprofit world and I still found many applicable ideas in his book. I happily recommend this book to anyone who is looking to sharpen his or her management skills.”
