Description

The book you need to make better business decisions, faster

The One Thing to Win at the Game of Business is the entrepreneur’s bible with everything you need to invest in your own entrepreneurial education. Based on author Creel Price’s own experience launching a small business for just $10,000 and then selling it a decade later for over $100 million, the book is based on one core business truth: that Decisionship, the ability to make better, faster decisions without the angst, is key to success.

Systematically explaining the Decisionship methodology that Price has used with great success, the book outlines a visual model that brings together three distinct “sights”—foresight, insight, and hindsight—at the heart of the decision making process. Taken together, these perspectives enable you to quickly and easily process your options from every angle and make smarter choices more quickly.

  • Presents a three-step process for making better business decisions
  • Teaches you the one thing you need to know to build a more productive, more profitable company
  • Explains the keys to building a closer-knit, more productive, and highly-motivated team

Innovative, practical advice from a proven business expert, The One Thing to Win at the Game of Business is the ultimate business shortcut—the single thing that you must understand about entrepreneurship in order to get ahead.
