Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"If you read this book, it's very clear Jason Reid knows how to grow and run a business in ways that enhance both the top-line and bottom-line along the shortest time line. The only thing that could possibly be better is to hear Jason telling it live, which I've had the pleasure to do on many occasions. Jason Reid knows his stuff and we would all benefit from a 'good listen'."

"Ambassador Energy has been extremely fortunate to have Jason Reid on our Advisory Board. From the beginning of our growth phase, Jason offered steps and tactics which are illustrated in this well-constructed, insightful book. We have experienced the benefits of Jason's intellectual property, and I highly recommend it in the form of his book, as he clearly articulates strategy, reason, motivation and many useful nuances to recognizing success in all markets -- not just challenging ones!"

"A fantastic blueprint for creating a long-term sustainable business for any industry. An incredible resource by someone who has a proven track record for utilizing these simple yet extremely successful principles in building his own business empire." John R. DiJulius III

"As a CEO, coach and speaker, I read an enormous number of books and I can highly recommend this book. The Survival Guide is jam packed with fantastic information to grow your business.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you for writing this book! It covers all of the basic, absolutely essential principles for any contractor to survive in this economy. I cannot tell you how many contractors will benefit from this book. Your book should be required reading for any person looking to start their own business!"
