From seasoned business owner and entrepreneur Jim Spurlino comes Business Bullseye, a practical and effective guide to leading small- to medium-sized businesses to success.
“If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.” This adage is true of many facets of life, and jumpstarting a business is no exception. Though thousands of businesses are founded each year, many fail at the hands of owners who lack the knowledge or focus needed to prosper. That’s where Business Bullseye comes in.
From his years of launching, leading, and ultimately selling a successful business, Jim Spurlino knows that one of the key facets of the planning process is identifying a precise target goal and placing that target at the forefront of every business decision.
Written for entrepreneurs from all walks of business and life, Business Bullseye provides the insight, tools, and guidance needed to launch your business to new heights. With a refreshingly realistic perspective and clear, actionable advice, Spurlino outlines a variety of universal concepts that emphasize establishing a clear and concise bullseye, and the necessary steps to taking dead aim and hitting it.
Punctuated by real-life stories, Business Bullseye inspires, entertains, and combines salient business lessons with spot-on advice from a successful entrepreneur, advice that will lead you and your business to hit the bullseye every single time.

"I bore witness to the fact that Jim took ‘dead aim‛ in building his company into a superior and successful supplier of the world’s most commonly used material, concrete. However, even more impressive was that along the way he also took ‘dead aim‛ at always living/operating by the golden rule: establishing, sharing, and abiding by a core set of values.
