An often overlooked secret to creating wealth as a business owner has little to do with actually running the business. Marketing, customer service, quality products, and more are required to make a business successful…but when it comes to creating real and lasting wealth, decisions regarding this key “secret” will have the greatest impact. These are not my words but those of Chris Hurn, a very successful businessman who has just published his first book: The Entrepreneur’s Secret to Creating Wealth: How The Smartest Business Owners Build Their Fortunes. As both a small business lender and a small business owner himself, Chris Hurn has a bird’s eye view of how businesses create wealth, as well as an in-the-trenches perspective on the tough decisions that must be made if a business is to go from good to great.
In The Entrepreneur’s Secret to Creating Wealth, Chris Hurn explains the myriad of factors and variables involved in this significant wealth-creation strategy. Plenty of books describe how entrepreneurs can create more ideas or have happier employees. But no other business book outlines in such detail — or with such authority — how to actually develop the wealth behind the business.
As a frequent guest as a small business commentator on Fox Business News, The Huffington Post, PBS and other media outlets, Chris Hurn states that he knows how small business entrepreneurs think because he is one.
Here is a small cross section of reviews that this new book, which is Chis Hurn’s first, has already received:
“Entrepreneurs have been forsaken by both Big Banks and the government. One of the few places small business entrepreneurs can turn to for help and advice is Chris Hurn’s book (and also his company).” – Lindon Hayes
“After explaining his fascinating background in business and politics, Hurn argues for owning [commercial property] over renting, offers advice on finding the right property and the right commercial broker, and then gives tips for successfully applying for an appropriate loan. Each chapter closes with an engaging Q&A with a businessperson who discusses life as an entrepreneur, as well as the experience of purchasing commercial property…Hurn’s engaging mix of clarity, enthusiasm and nuts-and-bolts humility mark him as an author to watch in the finance genre.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Chris Hurn reveals his insider strategies and step-by-step tactics for creating our lifelong fortune. Plenty of books describe how entrepreneurs can create more ideas or happier employees. However, no other business book outlines in such detail and with such authority how to actually develop the wealth behind the business.” -Sally Hogshead, creator of HowToFascinate.com and bestselling author of Fascinate: Your 7 Triggers to Persuasion and Captivation
“Small business has no better friend than Chris Hurn, and he demonstrates it yet again with this insightful book. It’s an invaluable guide to a crucial, but often overlooked, aspect of building a business.” — Bo Burlingham, editor-at-large of Inc. magazine
