From the Publisher
Building a Business on Bacon & Eggs
Written by "three good eggs" this is a book that really does bring home the bacon.
Using the Personal Computer as a metaphor each connection, with a printer, a scanner and so on, improves the working capacity and efficiency of the machine.
So it is with people. The authors Steve, Andy and Terry all use the principal of networking (as with computers) in a variety of very different ways to suit individual needs but, improve the capacity and efficiency of the people in any group using the defining logic expressed in this book.
This is a definitive work there is no doubting the authority of those that put it together.
Improve your bottom line, your working knowledge, your interaction with other business people by using this very effective guide to how its done and enjoy the meal in the process.
That is the message that clearly comes from Building a Business on Bacon & Eggs. You would have to be pretty hard boiled not to find it an entertaining and profitable read.

It taps the popular desire to be able to meet regularly to have business secured virtually before the working day starts.
The authors have a wealth of experience of this phenomena within the United Kingdom. Originally imported from the USA, the authors have adapted this simple and effective idea to UK tastes.
One of the Authors, Andy Lopata, heads up networking with the Business Referral Exchange (BRE) which has seen explosive growth within the UK over the past few years as businesses realise that attaining business through sharing expertise, experience and connections is a guaranteed way to develop growth. Andy shares several of the experiences, some hilarious, of his network that allow newcomers to hit the ground running.
Terry O'Halloran adds his experience of running a highly successful breakfast group as a sideline to his main business.
Stephen Davis comes at the topic from an organisers' point of view to demonstrate how you can use this type of meeting to significant effect.
All in all this comprehensive book has something for everyone whether the reader wants to make their membership of such a group effective or is interested in setting up such a meeting from scratch.
The book is colourful and easy to read, with a handy summary or check list at the end of each chapter and enlivened with real case studies throughout.
I enjoyed this book and commend it to anyone who wants to get business through meeting others.
The authors certainly know their onions and not just their bacon and eggs!
Move your peer group and your business activity up a notch through simple activities that only take an hour or so a month.
Read the case studies of those who have participated and prevailed against the odds.
"Building a Business on Bacon and Eggs" is a well written `step by step' approach to running your own business mentoring group. For the cost of a breakfast it can feed you for a lifetime.
It worked for me and it will work for you.
Whether you are already in a referral group or not this book will help you get the most out of your networking.
Good solid businesses are built on 'who you know' and not necessarily what you know.
This could be the best Â£15 you will spend in your business!
Plenty of tips of do's and don'ts.
Lots of checklists.
If you get a chance to hear any of the authors speak, grab the chance, all three are worth listening to
