Extremely Busy This Week

I realized as I was sitting here working this morning after getting up at around 4:30a that its already Wednesday and I haven’t really posted anything since Sunday.

I’ve been extremely busy with work this week. Additionally, I picked up a book called The Search: How Google and Its Rivals Rewrote the Rules of Business and Transformed Our Culture on the recommendation of a friend and have spent all available free time reading it. Its a facinating book. While I’m only half way through it, I feel very comfortable recommending it right now. The best way to explain it is the Hard Drive : Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire of the search industry.

As I get some time this week, I also want to write up something on another book I read last week called The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It, in which the author explains what they call the Franchise Prototype and the factors involved in creating a small business. Additionally, he explains why most small businesses started by ‘Technicians’ fail. Its a really great read. Pick it up if you get a chance.

Ok, enough writing, back to the office. I’ve got my iPod loaded and a posting on the web site. Time to get some work done!
