"Boss Life" is one of the most realistic and down-to-Earth books that I have ever read about small business ownership. It follows the story of Paul Downs, owner of Paul Downs Cabinetmakers for over a year as he seeks to grow and maintain his business. The book provides his ups (getting new clients, traveling internationally, hiring a consultant to improve his sales process, etc.) and his downs (being afraid his business would end, delays in decision to fire an unproductive employee, not understanding Adwords, etc.) It provides reader unprecedented access into the life and mind of a small business owner with big dreams.
