Summary

What is a boutique? 

A boutique is a professional services firm past the start-up stage but prescale. Examples can be found in consulting, marketing and advertising, IT services, etc. It’s basically anyone who sells their expertise. 

There are 1,465,900 boutiques. This book is for them. 

It is about what firms at scale do. It is about what boutiques need to do to scale. And this knowledge gap between those at scale, and those not at scale, makes all the difference. 

There is about two trillion dollars spent per year on professional services. Those at scale capture most of it. If you want a bigger piece of the pie, you must scale. 

We are in the golden era of boutiques. The business models of your clients are being disrupted. This makes it virtually impossible for them to have all the required expertise in-house. They are looking for external expertise. They have big budgets to spend. Clients are buying from boutiques in record numbers. 

The sun is shining. Time to make hay.

Outstanding Book on Boutiques

This book is a goldmine of information on how to setup, scale and sell a boutique professional service firm. There's info here that I have seen nowhere else. Also the questions at the end of each chapter are challenging and thought provoking. Outstanding book!

By far the best business book for small and medium sized businesses

Greg Alexander has been able to answer all of the questions I have ever wanted to know about growing my business. What is more important to me is that he answers questions that I never thought to ask. If you are very serious about starting, scaling, and perhaps one day selling your business this book will get you there.
