The Business Game—here’s how you can win!
Are you a business owner, manager, or employee who struggles with:
- Taxes, cash flow, sales, and profits
- Marketing and advertising effectiveness
- Hiring, motivating, and managing talent
- The economy, stock market, and competitors
- Bosses, boards, stockholders and partners
- Never-ending to-do lists and sacrificing your quality of life to succeed?
If you answered "yes" to any of these, you’ve been playing The Business Game and suffering the consequences. Even if you’re rolling in profits right now, there are hidden costs you’re paying to earn that money—money that’s always at risk.
You learned "the rules" and you’ve been faithful to them, thinking you can win. But you can’t really win The Business Game, because it’s designed to be unwinnable—that is, as long as you play by the rules you were taught. The only way to truly win is to bust loose from the "old" game and start playing a new game with a new set of rules.
This book helps you discover who you really are, what you’re really capable of, and how you can tap new sources of power, wisdom, and abundance to radically transform your experience of business. When you bust loose from the old game, you’ll suddenly be playing a new game:
- For the sheer pleasure of playing, with no worries about sales, marketing, profits, cash flow, taxes, other people, or personal income
- Entirely unaffected by the economy, stock market, competitors, or technological innovation
- Having more fun with less effort than you’ve ever experienced
- Doing only what you love to do—all day, every day
- Watching as amazing results come your way, without having to "make it happen"
It may sound unbelievable, but it’s entirely possible. You can do it—if you open your mind and embrace the strategies in this book. Busting Loose from The Business Game leads you into a New Business Game filled with results and satisfaction beyond anything you’ve ever imagined possible. Read on… and bust loose!

As a current corporate director of human resources, I am on a continual quest for books on management. That is, "good" books on management with an emphasis on the people side of business - that is, books such as Sylvia Lafair's work in Don't Bring It to Work: Breaking the Family Patterns That Limit Success. With Busting Loose From the Business Game, I have found a book that is both fun to read and full of practical advice. From the onset in the first chapter whereby the author describes our day-to-day roles as being on a greyhound track, I really related to the subject matter. While I was initially skeptical of the book cover's statement about how we can't "win the game" I was pleased to see this statement expanded by the author's explanation that even when we do win we pay too high a price due to the unhappiness, stress, etc. that has accumulated over the years of striving for our goals. I do struggle with the price that people often pay for the top rung as I addressed this in my people management book, Wingtips with Spurs. While I wouldn't go as far as calling the fixes recommended as being `radical', I do believe we (most of us anyway - and me for sure) could benefit greatly from the advice in the book. Indeed, I would submit that a person could only apply those segments that they feel comfortable with, study the results and then return to the book for more. I really appreciate the author's work in this field. Far too many of the recent management books bear a negative tone. This book is different and highly recommended. I hope you find this review helpful. Michael L. Gooch, SPHR
If you claim to have read this book in three hours, then you didn't actually read it.
