If you’ve just started out in business, or you’ve recently made the leap to becoming self-employed, then Botty’s Rules is a book that you absolutely must read!

Who is Botty?

The book is written by UK entrepreneur Nigel Botterill, aka Botty.

Personally, as a new UK entrepreneur myself, I find it helpful to study other successful UK entrepreneurs.

Although every entrepreneur still has plenty of valuable insights to give, I sometimes find that customers can all react and respond differently depending on their country and culture. Therefore, following an entrepreneur that has made it work in your own country can be advantageous.

It’s also important to mention that Botterill has founded several successful businesses. He’s not just someone who Googled ‘entrepreneurship’ and then published a book. He’s been in the trenches too!

About the book

The book, Botty’s Rules, is similar to an autobiography. It tells the story of how the author quit his job, started, and grew his businesses, noting his 29 Success Secrets along the way.

Even though I read this book for the first time a while ago, I still use some of Botty’s Rules today.

Overall, the book is well laid out, the chapters are not too long, the book is an easy read, and the author’s personal story running throughout the book keeps the reader interested.

However, I think that it’s fair to mention that if you have been established in business for quite some time, then this book may be a bit basic for you. I would, therefore, suggest that it is more suited to new entrepreneurs.

Final thoughts

If you are starting a business or about to brave the world of entrepreneurship, this is an excellent book for you!

The story, together with the rules, will help to put you in the right mindset and help make sure you focus on the things that are going to make a difference.

This book is brilliant for the first-time entrepreneur, although it may be a bit basic for those that have been in business for a considerable length of time.
