Decision Toolbox CEO Kim Shepherd‘s new release “Get Scrappy” (co-authored with renowned investor and entrepreneur Dave Berkus) was recently named to’s list of “3 Books Small Business Owners Should Read.”

Excerpt from the article:

There is so much small business owners need to know to operate at peak performance. Luckily we live in the Information Age with plentiful resources. To help you sift through some of the data, every week we’re going to look at three business books small business owners should read and the lessons you can learn from reading them.

Get Scrappy: Business Insights to Make Your Company More Agile ($24.95)

By Dave Berkus and Kim Shepherd

Authors Dave Berkus and Kim Shepherd pack a lot of business know-how and expertise into this book. Berkus is an early stage venture capitalist, and Shepherd is the CEO of Decision Toolbox, a virtual recruiting firm.

This book covers the serious topics all small business owners need to know more about—but it’s written without jargon, so you instantly understand what the authors are telling you and can quickly act upon their advice.

Shepherd says for a business to survive (if not thrive) today, it must be agile and scrappy. Too many business owners, she adds, “forget the value of simplicity.” A few of my favorite parts of the book include “The Best Advice Startups Will Never Follow” and “Good, Cheap, Fast. Pick Any Two.”

Berkus says business owners often have to think (and act) like coaches—and this book helps you do exactly that.
