Picture your Business Strategy will help you bring the illustrations back to your ideas. I actually still sketch out all my ideas on paper before going about trying to figure them out – but this seems to be a dying practice. This book is all about how you can bring them back and make them work for you and your business. I think that I am a more visual and hands on learner and this is why I like to see something instead of just hear you tell me about it or have me read about it. The power of visuals!
The book has a lot of great information in it, and of course since it is about pictures and visuals there are great little sketches (just about a level above stick figures) throughout the book for an added touch, as well as some sketched graphs and diagrams as well.
If you have a business or are thinking of starting one, this is definitely a great book to read to give you some ideas on how to make things work.
I received a free e-copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
