What does a successful small business look like?

After 10 years in small business Kelly Exeter came to the conclusion that it looked like this:

It’s one that’s both profitable, and also set up so the business owners have the emotional resilience to surmount all the challenges thrown their way.

Over the years she signed up for hundreds of courses and downloaded countless free e-books and resources. Resources that suggested she should:

  • Implement complex marketing strategies.
  • Spend absurd amounts of time developing products that may never sell.
  • Approach business in a way that was fundamentally opposed to my personal, professional or lifestyle goals.

None of those resources made her business more resilient or successful.

None of them made her business life easier.

Eventually, she realised she had to stop looking for magic bullets because they didn’t exist.

What did exist, however, were shortcuts. Faster pathways to achieving the success she was looking for.

It took 10 years and thousands of dollars for her to figure out the shortcuts she shares in this book. Hopefully, you’ll benefit from them much earlier in your business journey.
