Find enduring success as a business owner by placing your personal why at the core of everything you do.

Purpose is the new black in business, but it′s already being dangerously misunderstood by companies the world over. It′s not about brand image, it′s about truth. The truth of why you want to run a company; the authentic motive that drives your passion to be your own boss; and the desire to deliver a win–win for both your business and your customer.

Generation Why is the new breed of business owners who totally get this. People of all ages and backgrounds who are rejecting the self–serving nature of conventional corporate behaviour and creating a new kind of capitalism based on authenticity and pride, not duplicity and greed. If that sounds like you then Truth. Growth. Repeat. is your user manual.

In jargon–free language it lays out:

  • the leading driver of customer attraction in our new transparent world
  • the path to surfacing your true purpose and finding its commercial value
  • ways your true purpose will attract the smartest minds in your sector
  • the virtuous circle that acts as a compass to guide your business growth
  • tips for overcoming the cynicism and distrust of 21st century consumers.

If you run a startup or small business or are about to this important book is a must–have.
