overcome small business challenges

Small business owners often struggle to work “on,” not “in” their businesses because they don’t have the time, skills or value the process of planning their business future. Well, there should be no more excuses, as business author Dr. Warren Harmer has just released a short, sharp and easy to follow guidebook on “Business Planning for Small Business: A step-by-step guide to the what, why, when and how of business planning” (published by Balboa Press AU).

Owning your own business

From his own experiences as a business owner and small business consultant for 17 years, Harmer knows too well the challenges of small business ownership, stating “there is never enough time and never enough money.” With a doctorate in science, Harmer has applied his scientific mind and distilled down the essentials of business planning from hundreds of small businesses to create a book that gives clear, concise and jargon-free instructions on what to do, when to do it and how to do it, that any business owner can follow, no matter how time poor.

Many small business experts have never owned a small business,” says Harmer, “which means it is not written with true experience that the average business owner believes or can understand.”

This book is written with implementation as high priority, to ensure that business planning actually works for the business and doesn’t “just gather dust on a shelf.”

Throughout his new book, Harmer helps small business owners with various aspects of business planning - from deciding what type of plan is best for them, to ensuring the right people are hired. He includes real examples from his own career as well, in which he shows his theories at work. There are also lots of free templates and tools available for download.

All small business owners should ideally utilize business planning in their businesses, but few do because they don’t appreciate the value or don’t know how to,” Harmer says. “This book aims to squarely address these challenges and create a practical guidebook they can refer to at any time.”

Are you content with the way you planned out your business and its future? Is it working for you?

Hi Kathie - I'm particularly interested in the self development and business space. For example, I really enjoyed Ride of a Lifetime by Bog Iger, Disney's CEO.

Not heard of that one David. Currently reading Peaks and Valleys by Spencer Johnson which is really quite apt for the current times we're in. He also wrote Who Moved My Cheese? which is another great book. Both are fairly quick reads.
