This is a book review. I read many books, a plethora of genres- drama, science fiction, self help, the list goes on, and some have been amazing, some just okay and some dead wrong.
This book is in the amazing category. It is a book for everyone. Are you starting a business? Are you a consumer of products? Do you deal with people in your line of work, or daily life? This book is for you.
Dale Partridge is the founder of a great company called Sevenly, and author of “People Over Profit” ; an amazing book that talks about the cycles of business and how to be successful in this day and age. People matter, profit will come if you focus on people and relationships and personal connections. It is a refreshing idea, and one that many companies have realized is the only way to be successful.
The list of companies choosing to focus on people over profit is exponentially growing. Toms, Sevenly, Bliss co., Hero bikes, just to name a few. Why are they so successful when they choose to risk some profit for the well being of their employees or to contribute to a just cause? Because we (that’s you!) have become educated consumers. As a teacher this is one lesson I reiterate to my secondary students. Do you know what your buying? Whether that be an article written expressing a certain viewpoint they must read and understand in class, or the energy drinks they love so much. Know what your buying. Who created it? Why did they create it? Do your research.
This book is amazing, I have read it, re-read it and take something amazing and new away from it every time. Buy it, you won’t regret it.

You should check it out, and just so you know I am not getting anything out of this, except the blessing of a world that learns to focus on people over money. What an amazing place that would be.
