About the book

94.6% of businesses started never get sold. Yet, there are only two destinations for every business: sale or closure! Businesses close at an enormous cost to the owner, their family, their staff, suppliers and customers. You’ve got to build to $ell. Sweat, Scale, $ell shares real business-building stories about how ordinary business owners took charge of their fate using the Asset of Value™ method. With Pavlo Phitidis, they Sweated to reshape their business to be relevant to a changing world; they built a solid foundation for Scale; and then they pressed hard to ramp up growth in preparation for $ale to create a business any buyer would want.
Phitidis draws on 25 years of direct experience in conceptualising and building businesses across four continents. Having started, built and sold 12 businesses generating in excess of $300m, he founded the Asset of Value™ method, a practical approach to build a winning business. Sweat, Scale, $ell is audaciously optimistic as it shows every business owner and entrepreneur where to find growth in a no-growth economy, make an impact and secure big returns. Here are extracts to help you in the journey to creating your wealth-generating asset starts.
