Copy This!

I read Copy This! by Paul Orfalea this last week.

It is the story of how he started Kinko’s copy centres, and expanded the business.

I found it a wonderful book about building a company from the ground up. He gives a lot of insight into how he directed the culture, how to be on you business verse be in your business, trusting people to-do what they have been tasked and ideas like the co-workers and profits sharing as mechanism to align co-workers with company growth/success.
