Inspire on Small Business Saturday

By Julianne Jones | September 23 2019 | NonfictionBest in Category

Small Business Saturday 2019 will hit stores across the U.S. on November 30, celebrating smaller independent retailers of all kinds—including our beloved indie bookstores! What began in 2010 as an effort to boost local business after a nationwide financial hit is now a major movement that has generated more than $103 billion in consumer spending.

It’s a day meant to discover and support the small shops in your own neighborhood, but it can also be a perfect time to encourage budding entrepreneurs. Ideally, those who participate on the designated Saturday are inspired to continue “shopping small” year-round.

For those seeking stories of successful start-ups, cautionary tales of what not to do to make it big, or advice on how to make their own unique ideas thrive, PRH has a wonderful selection of backlist titles discussing entrepreneurship. On Small Business Saturday and beyond, accounts can use this mix of titles to create conversation-sparking displays.

Start with Why
How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action
The inspirational bestseller that ignited a movement and asked us to find our WHYDiscover the book that is captivating millions on TikTok and that served as the basis for one of the most popular TED Talks of all time—with more than 56 million views and counting. Over a decade ago, Simon Sinek started a movement that inspired millions to demand purpose at work, to ask what was the WHY of their organization. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, and these ideas remain as relevant and timely as ever. START WITH WHY asks (and answers) the questions: why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it.  START WITH WHY shows that the leaders who have had the greatest influence in the world all think, act and communicate the same way—and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY.
