I recently read SP Solutions' book, The 5 Levels Of Business Ownership, and I must say I loved how they were able to explain the usual problem of spending too much time working IN your business, as opposed to working ON your business in such simple terms. The 5 levels of business ownership described in the book are very much what I'm used to seeing in the SME world, where the majority of my clients would be in the owner-manager and owner-director stages.
I will definitely pass this book on to a couple of my friends who run their own trade-based micro businesses as it is a much easier read than many other business books out there and as such, will have a much higher likelihood of actually being read by tradesmen.
