Even though I sold a large Inc. 500 company before, this gave me the models I needed to just drop things into place and greatly improve and speed up my business development process.

Each book helps at a particular company development stage:
1) Design the Business Model
2) Launch the Business
3) Hire the Best People while scaling up
4) Manage Growth
Each book gives clear step-by-step instructions for each phase and a roadmap and structure to successfully navigate the pitfalls and issues that most often kill new businesses and products. Ideally, they should be read in order to maximize the benefit and your success.
The four ebooks can be downloaded immediately and you can put the ideas and systems into action very quickly. Unlike hardcover books, which need to be a certain size to justify the printing, distribution, and retail markups, these books will not have lots of redundant information, essentially showcasing the same basic ideas in five different ways. They are packed with unique content (averaging over 110 pages) that comes from the experience of a real serial entrepreneur, not just an author. The philosophies and systems used in each are compatible so that, as a set, they create a complete framework for founding any business and growing it more rapidly.
Some key chapters and concepts are repeated in some of the books. The combination manual has all these redundancies removed. So if you plan to read the entire series it is best to buy the entire "Startup Manual" below, as it has one copy of everything plus a bonus CD with additional material.
These books address issues most entrepreneurs struggle with while starting a new business for a long, long time and can save and make you not just thousands, but hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars, by ramping sales faster and saving money on expensive mistakes.
