  • Ditch the Book: Running a Business YOUR Way

    by Espree Devora, Liam Martin, Lewis Howes, Giang Biscan and Shane Mac

    The perceived wisdom for business success is that you need to follow the rules. Sure, there’s room to be a maverick but you still need to have a 5 year plan, a marketing strategy, a HR department, a path to profit.

    Now the rule book is going out of the window as people prove you can be a success by putting passion and authenticity at the heart of their business, and doing it their way without compromise. Ideas like business unplanning and freemium models are busting the myths and disrupting the status quo. Now there’s a new generation of role models from Gary Vaynerchuk to 37signals who are proving that by keeping it real and eschewing a big strategy, they can still be a success.

    Ditch the rule book is for freelancers, start-ups, executives and entrepreneurs. It’s for anyone who needs an injection of fresh thinking to shake things up: to be a game-changer whilst staying true to their DNA. It’s brought to you by a bunch of guys with their own stories of how they ditched the rule book. These stories will educate, inspire and hopefully entertain. But we also want to create a forum for participation and interaction with contributions from the floor.

    Ditching the rule book can bring you breakthroughs in your business whilst making sure your business stands out in the crowd.

    Ditch The Rule Book is for 'rebels without a suit' and anyone looking to revolutionize their business by doing it YOUR way.
