Riot is, no doubt, a unique business. People often ask me how I came up with the idea. The answer is through educating myself in the best practices of successful businesses and learning how they are implemented in sport and other such organizations. The ideas flow through my head daily and I absolutely love it! There are 3 books that I suggest every business owner, coach or non-profit leader read. Remember, your organization is a small business. The E-Myth: This will teach you first, why it is important to implement replicable and profitable systems(“profit” is success to you- however you define it). Then how to develop, document and implement systems. The idea is to free up your time to do what you want to do instead of what are stuck having to do. How to Win Friends and Influence People: This book has been in print since 1936. Yes, 1936. And you’ll find it at just about every bookstore in America today because it is that important. If you have to deal with people- and you do- then this is a must read. Must, must, must. It will change your life like no other book will and it will make you more successful. The Four-Hour Work Week: This book is candy for the soul of anyone who wants to free up more time and do what they love for a living. It will inspire you to look for effective ways to delegate tasks and get more done in less time so that you can spend your time doing what you enjoy. Riot is all about creating systems to make your program create a following. And, of course, start a Riot!
