Overview

Many entrepreneurs embrace the challenge of being their own boss; they desire freedom-both financial and temporal. But, often, the business consumes both time and money and ends up owning the owner. In Make the Noise Go Away, author Larry G. Linne discusses thirteen principles to help business owners reclaim their freedom.

Written in parable style, Make the Noise Go Away follows business owner Jim Clancy and second-in-command Brett Giles at Golden Electric Supply. During a weekend retreat at a quiet mountain cabin, the two executives discuss the principles and strategies that make Jim's noise-all the worries and concerns about his business-go away and allow Brett's job to be more enjoyable and successful. They talk about important skills and concepts such as maintaining upward communication, setting priorities, practicing effective problem solving, and introducing new ideas.

Targeted to both first- and second-in-commands, Make the Noise Go Away provides insights on decision-making skills, methods to protect and nurture great CEO ideas, and strategies for managing the perception of the business by important third parties. With concrete takeaways and tools for implementation, this guide helps clear the way for productivity and success for today's business executives and their seconds-in-command.

    Outstanding First Effort

    Similar to Ken Blanchard, Spencer Johnson, and Patrick Lencioni, Larry Linne uses the business fable approach to share his experiences and success strategies as both a first and second in command. Each of the 100 or so pages is packed full of insight and ideas that could only come from real experiences and not merely theory.

    Most impressive is the realization the issues and solutions identified in the book are situations faced by most business people at some point in their career. Unfortunately, most of us fail to recognize the importance to ultimate success. Thankfully, Linne highlights these to our benefit. While not every item will be applicable to every reader, I would be surprised to find anyone not able to identify with several.

    The only negative I found was that many of the tools included in the text were too powerful to be addressed in just a few pages. To really utilize the concepts included will require a time investment several times greater than the hour or so it takes to read the book. Hopefully, Linne will soon offer a workbook to assist in the process.

    A must read for the serious business professional and a fun read for everyone else.
