Are You A Grown-Up Business

September 25th, 2014

bookI wrote The Grown-Up Business™ book for business owners just like you who’ve found that running their business just wasn’t fun anymore; a chore not a pleasure, stressful instead of fun, standing still treading water instead of growing income and profit.

Too many small business owners feel overworked, un-loved, stressed, lost, confused, lonely or just plain exhausted from juggling everything all of the time! The Grown-Up Business™ gives business owners a clear pathway to rediscover the passion, love, fun and profit within their business, and how to get their life back.

The Grown-Up Business™ is a step-by-step guide for turning a business from a seven stone weakling into a business with real muscle and endurance. It certainly packs a punch and includes 47 real-life case studies and almost 200 how to tips, exercises and templates to help you every step of the way.

The book officially launches on October 30th but you can pre-order your paperback, Kindle or audio versions at www.grownupbusiness.com. And if you can’t wait to start reading you can Download Chapter One right now.

I couldn’t have written this book without my clients and to them a big thank you. It was their challenges, problems, issues and stresses that persuaded me to write a book to try to help more small business owners. But the Grown-Up Business™ book can only make a difference if I can spread the word and help more businesses to blossom rather than stagnate.

I would like you to help me spread the word,

  1. When you download Chapter One you send a tweet – this will get the conversation started.
  2. Share it through your social media platforms.
  3. If you’d like me to write a guest post, or speak at your event just email me.
  4. There is a competition running – send a tweet which starts ‘A #grownupbusiness is…’ and you could win a book too – which I’ll only sign if you ask me to! By using #grownupbusiness I’m hoping to really kick start the discussion and a new community.
  5. If you don’t already then follow @coachsme or @grownupbusiness and we’ll keep you up to date.

Finally I’ve come up with a few bonus offers to encourage you to buy some extra copies and share them with your senior team, other business people or budding go-getters! Perhaps making a purchase or donation to your local sixth form or college?
