Small businesses can think big... here's how.

Are you struggling to find marketing ideas for your small business? Does your business plan consist of a few scribbles on the back of a napkin? Does the thought of learning “online marketing” scare you? Do you find traditional business books dull, or uninspiring? Have you read business biographies of the poster boys (Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Alan Sugar, Elon Musk, Steve Jobs etc), only to feel a sense of overwhelm, and a complete disconnect between what they achieved, and where you are right now? Do you want to grow your small business, without having to learn complex marketing strategies, and without being told to simply “work harder than everyone else”? If so, then Big Ideas... for Small Businesses could be the “lightbulb moment” you’ve been waiting for....

Former civil servant John Lamerton has run more than 60 small businesses since 2000, making millions of pounds, and thousands of mistakes along the way. This audiobook is a collection of the lessons and successes that he uses to coach and mentor hundreds of small business owners, teaching them to think bigger, work less, and design their business around the lifestyle they want. Some of the big ideas that you will discover:

Great audio book! Inspiring and refreshing...!

Having a small plumbing business of my own and been through some of the ups and downs, highs and lows of business..... listening to John, it was great to hear John narrating, with his different outlook on his now successful business with what he calls a life business. What a great read, it left me inspired and refreshed with a different yet positive outlook in my work...

Thanks John
