Read at your own peril!
For far too long, there have been those that complain and believe they can do something better. This happens in every segment where structure is needed for all organizations. Whether it be a fraternal, strictly social, nonprofit, for profit, and all in between. This short but concise book puts all the onerous for complaints back where it belongs: in the complaining hands. That's why reading this is at your own peril, because it gives you all the necessary thought processes, underlying constructs, and methodology to either stand where you are and be the impetus to rebuild, move on and build anew, or help others doing either. After reading, there's now no excuse for inaction. You'll now know and have the working tools to act. For it'll now be incumbent on you to produce the change desired, as it always has been.

Few books on the craft today offer logistical assistance on the operational lodge or its active officers. It’s Business Time aims to offer a fresh look at the best practices that the world of business has spawned over the last hundred years and to take these market-disrupting techniques and adapt them for use at the Lodge level. Just because Freemasonry isn't inherently a business doesn’t mean the organization can’t benefit from industry-proven best organizational practices. It's Business Time lays out these modern concepts, and their relevance to Freemasonry in an easy-to-understand guide. The work explores and adapts each concept for use across the organization, regardless of leadership level. If utilized appropriately, these concepts can be a powerful force multiplier in enabling Lodges to succeed in the modern era.
"As someone with an MBA, I have long studied some of the best business practices and how to use these in organizations that I have been associated with. Brothers Johnson and Ruark have assembled some of the most innovative approaches used by successful companies and have illustrated how to adopt these for use in Freemasonry. This book is not about making Freemasonry a business, but rather applying these principals in building a successful lodge. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for new and innovative ideas."
