6 Practices To Build Your Nerve And Your Business
You’ve been in business for a while, but you’ve hit a wall. The business has gotten much more complicated than it used to be, and less fun. Though you are working harder than ever, you aren’t making more money. Though you started out with high hopes, you’re starting to have some doubts – even second thoughts.

The Business Owner’s Champion: 6 Practices to Build your Nerve and your Business was written to cheer on today’s savvy – yet sometimes discouraged – business owner. With a been-there-done-that attitude, business advisor, public speaker and author Brad Farris tells business owners like it is: You can blame everyone else, but your business is as good or as bad as you make it.
The good news is that there is hope for business owners out there, but only if they have the right attitude and approach. In his book, Farris details six fundamental actions business owners can take to build their business without doing it all themselves and reclaim the life they once had or might want.
Farris offers empathy…
What business owners really feel is fear – fear that they can’t build a business that they love, filled with a team of people whom they respect and whom earn them a fair return on their risk. This fear debilitates them, causing them to make a series of other fear-related missteps in their businesses.
No one appreciates how hard it was to get here! My people are just walking in here and they haven’t proven anything. Don’t they know they have to earn this?
Some “tough love”…
Oh, you must be so miserable! You have hired every incompetent person in the whole industry, and to prove it you let each of them fail catastrophically, and then YOU saved the day by working extra hard. It’s like this is your sentence, your fate. If I were in your place, I would be crying!
But most of all, direction…
As you move from an individual contributor to a manager and leader, more and more of your time is going to be spent with people and less and less with tasks. You will spend your time planning and coordinating work that others will be completing. That’s called leverage; your planning and knowledge enables the work of several others.
This book was written with today’s busy business owner in mind. It takes less than one hour to digest this quick-reading, get-to-the-point book. And, each chapter offers resource suggestions for business owners who need further guidance in a particular area.
Clients have paid thousands of dollars to get this material in one-to-one sessions, and when Brad has given seminars on these topics he has charged individuals hundreds of dollars to attend. The material in this book has helped some of his clients to double and even triple the sales and profits of their businesses.
