Fun at Work as the book title suggests that fun, or doing what pleases you is core. In Greg Winteregg’s, the author shows his basic rules to run a successful business. From “If it’s not fun, I’m not doing it”, “Deciding to help a lot of people by doing something that you like. Then work hard!” to “All you need to do is figure out who you can help with your talents; then conquer your fear and START!”
Chapters are built around ‘philosophies’ like Everyone, to some degree, must align with the overall purpose of the company, the concept of value and communication: basic concepts that are explained in an accessible, understandable format, but lacking any in-depth insight or a format that really sticks. It made me browsing the book instead of studying it page by page. Familiar stuff that indeed may increase fun at work as well, but primarily is meant to take baby steps into entrepreneurship or a management position.
The book suggests exercises to apply the principles of success. And with every chapter comes an invitation to download these online.
