Bob Pritchett started his first business at age six. In high school, he ran a software company that sold to Fortune 500 companies. By the age of 20, he had cofounded Logos Research Systems, Inc. He has seen the ups of high profits and the downs of a failed IPO attempt. Pritchett's successes and failures led him to write Fire Someone Today.
Far from a treatise on giving employees the axe, Fire Someone Today uses four categories—People, Leadership, Finance, and Operations—to cover a wide range of issues unique to the more than 20 million small business owners in the United States. Filled with hands-on advice and practical examples from real businesses, the book takes a no-nonsense approach to the uncomfortable decisions and actions that every manager, business owner, or entrepreneur must face.
