Whether you’re an investor, inventor, leader, or manager, each aspect should be approached as an entrepreneur. As an entrepreneur, you are planning, balancing internal and external factors, creating marketing strategies, taking risks, and managing people and tasks all within limitations from logistics and operations to finances. Many elements need to be taken into account, from your goals and family to personal needs. In Three’s a Company: For Entrepreneurs and Entrepreneurs In the Making by Dr. Tsvika S. Ben-Porat, the reader will be given tips on best practices to avoid imbalance overload which can cause stress, health issues, being unproductive, wasted time, and loss of money. In this book, you will learn the pros and cons of your chosen path, keeping in mind that there must be balance from day-to-day to long-term operations. A question to ask before you start is what is your ultimate goal for beginning this journey? Is it financial independence, freedom, generational wealth, or something else? This would be a motivator on those days when you feel you have failed or feel unmotivated to continue.

In Three’s a Company by Dr. Tsvika S. Ben-Porat, I enjoyed the various steps like the project management lifecycle which considers everything to meet your stated goals. Ben-Porat challenges the reader to look at not only the impact of internal factors on the stated goal but the external as well. You must consider everything outside of the end goal. People tend not to seek balance as an entrepreneur but instead, they allow the drive of the desired goal to set the pace. This is what usually causes people to gain one thing at the expense of another, whether it be health, family, time, or money. Ben-Porat suggests being honest about what you know and don’t know, and then seeking out a coach or mentor to help guide you through the process. Also, the reader is given sample cases using the practices to learn how the process works. Business is hard but having the right tools and resources in place is ideal. Add this book to your library to begin or help you to work through your business journey.

For those who enjoy the relative security of a regular paycheck, there is a misconception that dipping your toes into the maelstrom that is entrepreneurship is as simple as buying a new pair of socks. Nothing could be further from the truth. The process of setting up and running a business is quite difficult and strewn with pitfalls which, if not handled as quickly as possible and with the highest regard for attention to detail, may spell doom for that business idea before it gets off the ground. Dr. Tsvika S. Ben-Porat has compiled all the little yet important details aspiring entrepreneurs should consider before engaging in this endeavor into one book. Three's A Company is that book.

Dr. Tsvika S. Ben-Porat delves right into the nitty-gritty of keeping a business afloat. His analysis is thorough as he starts from the basic building blocks of creating the enterprise with topics that encourage the reader to set personal goals in what they consider a successful enterprise. His opinions on the best time to apply one's intuition to a growing enterprise speak volumes of the level of experience he has amassed and is sharing in Three's A Company. From extensive discussions on the importance of timing to an in-depth analysis of the types of motivation that would optimize output from your employees, Ben-Porat leaves no stone unturned in a bid to thoroughly educate the reader on this topic.

Three’s a Company: For Entrepreneurs and Entrepreneurs in the Making by Dr. Tsvika S. Ben-Porat is a self-help business guide that explores entrepreneurship, emphasizing self-awareness in defining success. Over the course of sixteen distinct and interconnected sections, Dr. Ben-Porat details areas like sacrifices and success qualities, such as assertiveness and resilience, and covers various aspects of business ownership, including formal authority, effective management, outsourcing, risk management, and goal-driven management. The author discusses challenges in the inventor-to-entrepreneur transition, financial aspects, business planning, presentations, and even moving through the inevitability of occasional failure. The author stresses effective time management, managerial authority, employee motivation, conflict resolution, and leadership in organizational health, all while urging a balanced approach to corporate excellence.

Three’s a Company is an insightful and easy-to-follow guide in which Dr. Tsvika S. Ben-Porat harnesses years of experience, knowledge, and expertise and compiles it for contemporary entrepreneurs and those who possibly want to be one at some point in their lives. What I really liked about this book is that it is accessible. This is extremely important given that so many of the business guides I have gone through are written in a way that is not always reader-friendly. Here, the style feels akin to a conversation with a respected friend who genuinely wants us to have all the tools we need. With this in mind, the standouts for me are the practical advice on areas like a business plan and the presentation. Even better, Dr. Ben-Porat gives us first-impression tips on the twenty critical but woefully underestimated seconds of the “elevator pitch.” Overall, this is an insightful, educational, and useful book that will undeniably assist its readers in starting off on the right foot. Very highly recommended.
