Consultant, speaker, and author Bob Tomasko is our new Cool Friend. His book is Bigger Isn't Always Better: The New Mindset for Real Business Growth. He explains that he's "not really a 'small is always the most beautiful' advocate," but that we should "think differently about growth. It's useful to de-couple the idea of growth from the idea of getting bigger." You can read more in his Cool Friends interview here, or visit his website, www.roberttomasko.com. Check out his blog on the topic, too.
