“Becoming a Strategic Business Owners” and Other Must Reads this Summer

Being a business owner can be a tough career, especially if your business is small and not quite booming. It can feel impossible to do anything from hire employees to taking a vacation. Can your business even open if you have to call in sick?

Dan Murphy, the CEO and founder of The Growth Coach, knows what it’s like to be open and operate a small business. When he started business and sales coaching more than 20 years ago, it was with the goal of making sure other business owners and leaders have the systems to be successful while living a better life.

For those business owners and leaders who aren’t sure if they need business coaching – and for those who may just need a little inspiration – Murphy wrote the book Becoming a Strategic Business Owner. This book is available as a free download here: http://www.thegrowthcoach.com/Resources/FREEBusinessOwnereBook/tabid/1167/Default.aspx.
