Raise Your Line is a must read for anyone who wants to succeed in today s competitive business world. This book is filled with information to help employees, business owners, leaders, and managers who are looking for better ways to move forward and progress towards a more successful future. In this book, Mr. Stevenson walks readers step by step, through how to improve their business performance, leadership skills, and reach their career goals. Mr. Stevenson gives countless practical and thought provoking insights on how to succeed in this highly competitive business environment. Throughout his book, he emphasizes points which are extremely important to success, by placing them in a box entitled LINE RAISER (there are over 100 of them in the book). So, by simply scanning through the pages, you will easily find countless ways to improve. Not only does he identify and explain the things readers should work on improving, he then tells them how. Success in business is depicted by a rising line on a financial chart; the higher that line rises, the greater the success. In this book Mr. Stevenson expands on that simple concept, explaining that all personal and business decisions should be based on the eventual outcome of making your profit line and personal success line, rise. He explains in the book that people need to start thinking of their life and business as a flat line, a line that stays flat, unless they do something to make it rise. The book is divided into 4 sections that address having the right mindset for raising your line, and then how to raise your line as a leader, company and personally. The 53 chapters and 248 pages are filled with information designed to help make YOUR LINE RISE both professionally and personally.
While this book was both entertaining and a fast read, it was full of many simplistic ideas in order to better yourself in whatever you strive for. They say, “repetition is the mother of skill!” Well, you will be hit between the eyes with a great many things that you have heard over the years. Problem being, that even though we hear them, we may even be listening to them…but do we apply them to our lives??? That is the question! We must strive to apply these steps in order to better ourselves; after all, we each do not know it all! We, at times, must try something new.
Godspeed & Good Reads!
