Gearing his work toward fellow entrepreneurs, Sarillo, founder and CEO of Nick’s Pizza & Pub, offers a personal account of being a small business owner, sharing his perspectives, challenges he’s faced and overcome, and the way he’s transformed his company into a thriving success. More than a mere autobiography, it’s also the story of his company and the people he works with. Sarillo expounds on the paths that he has chosen and why, what those choices have produced, and where the results have led. Many lessons are divulged, but he also wants to reveal a culture, starting with the need for a company to create and state its purpose: this means putting forward “sharp, present-centered statements of what the organization already is right now on days when everything works as it should.” Throughout he expounds on the nature of employees as family, their freedom, growth, and their impact on the company as a whole. Focusing on creating “a work environment that’s meaningful to people and worth being a part of,” Sarillo’s stories center on the power of inspiration, learning, and growing: tips and tools that will help move and motivate a company toward a path of success.
