According to the Small Business Administration, 90% of service businesses will fail within the first five years. They fail not because they don't offer great services and products, but because the owners are extremely uncomfortable with traditional marketing and sales. The result is a frustrated, isolated, and overwhelmed business owner who does not know there is an entirely different, highly successful approach to marketing and sales available - and it's laid out in Book Yourself Solid.

Book Yourself Solid is based on Michael Port's proven system for getting more clients. And it works. In fact, 93% of business owners who have used the system have experienced a 34% increase in their total number of clients and a 42% increase in sales in the first year alone.

    " I have recommended this book to many people...all have thanked me. More than a typical treatise on how to create a lead funnel, it is about serving with integrity and being rewarded for doing what you love. If you are a service professional wanting to acquire clients, read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gotogrrl | 1/19/2014

    " Excellent, practical, a useful challenge to all entrepreneurs. Helped me shed several bad habits that were holding back my business, and gave me new ideas to try that have helped us grow this year. Awesome read, especially because while I read it, I felt like it was building my business in real-time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/18/2014

    " Generally, this is a good book for the service professional, which I am. I'm still in the early stages of the book and am taking it slowly to do the exercises as I go. But they have been clarifying for me who my ideal client is and how best to serve them. From that perspective, Port's ideas are fairly unique. I look forward to finishing the book. "

    " Although I had a hard time getting into this book there is much useful information on how to increase your business if you are self-employed. Although I may not agree with everything said in the book I think anyone self-employed could benefit from reading and following (some of) the program. "
