Most businesses are run by owners who love what they do, only to find it soon becomes a millstone around their neck. Running their business just isn’t fun anymore: a chore, not a pleasure; stressful, instead of fun; standing still treading water, instead of growing income and profit. They’re desperate to get out of the rut, increase sales to customers, grow profits, reduce their stress levels and get their life back.
The Grown-Up Business is a step-by-step program for business owners to help them build rhythm, consistency and momentum in their company. It introduces the reader to the Grown-Up Business Model, a route map to prosperous and sustainable growth. The chapters describe what needs to be done at each stage of growth. It details the What and Why, shows through case studies and examples the Why, and concludes with detailed, structured and tested How to‘s.
Too many business owners are overworked, stressed, lost, confused, lonely or just plain exhausted! The Grown-Up Business sets out a clear pathway for them to rediscover the passion, fun and profit within their business, and how to get their life back.
