What does it mean when a business is truly “sustainable”? Authors Elizabeth Lake Ledoux and Melvin J. Wernimont, Ph. D. tackle that question in “Accelerate Your Entrepreneurial Flight: How to Energize Business Value and Entrepreneurial Growth.” The question is all the more important as baby boomers begin to retire, taking with them the decades of business expertise and experience that have driven the companies they’ve forged over the years.

In “Accelerate Your Entrepreneurial Flight,” Ledoux and Wernimont provide a roadmap to business sustainability, and the premise is simple: you’ll have to train the people around you to rely on you less and less if you want your business to be able to survive without your direct presence, whether you choose to stay or not. The book steers you through the steps of the “Successful Sustainer,” teaching important lessons along the way and addressing the key obstacles most business owners see to building true sustainability.

The book does an excellent job of explaining a complicated problem and guiding you through simple solutions. It doesn’t mince words about the tough decisions that may be ahead – on the contrary, it encourages you to look within yourself to find out why you haven’t been able to let go of more control yet. The result is a thought-provoking book filled with practical steps that will leave you with an entirely different perspective on your business, your future, and even your life.
