Keeping it Simple: Six Business Classics (as inspired by the Amish)
a book list by Erik Wesner, author of Success Made Simple: An Inside Look at Why Amish Businesses Thrive
shelved under Business
I spent a lot of time with Amish people while researching my Amish business book.
One thing I discovered is that the Amish aren’t reinventing a lot of wheels — but relying on time-tested principles to achieve 5-year business success north of 90%. Not bad when you consider the general population’s mark is less than half that.
In that vein, here are six classics on a range of business topics. The nice thing about principles is that they don’t go out of style — and tend to work in any range of places, cultures, or circumstances.
