The Floundering Founder

Raman Sehgal

Do you ever feel like you’re drowning in your own success?

Expertise-based entrepreneurs are excellent at what they do, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to manage a growing service business.

Juggling constant client demands against the need to focus on growth can be a real struggle. It’s an all-consuming journey that can feel suffocating, making it hard to find time to step back and evaluate, both for yourself and your company.

With quick, simple clarity, The Floundering Founder can help you reengineer your business—and your life—for long-term success. In twenty-four bite-sized lessons that fit any schedule, you’ll learn to navigate forward with renewed intentionality and purpose.

The Floundering Founder collects the essential tools and learnings that can have the greatest impact—the ones Raman wished he had known before learning them the hard way.

Pick up The Floundering Founder today and discover the pivotal habits that can grow your business while simplifying your life.

I wish only that Raman Sehgal had written this book forty years ago and made me read it. The Floundering Founder is filled with wisdom and advice that would have made my own journey happier and more productive. It can do that for you if you take its lessons to heart.
