Resources for Business Owners
Information and Solutions by Productive Flourishing
Entrepreneur. Small business owner. Founder. Thought leader. Whatever label you choose, your task is much like building furniture from IKEA. You have a pile of boards, screws, random parts with names you can’t pronounce, and a very incomplete instruction manual with a picture of a guy smiling when you know damn well he should be as frustrated as you are now or were two hours ago before you solved some problem that had been vexing you.
What we provide here are the missing tools, instructions, and accurate pictures of what it takes to turn your idea into something that serves you and others. By serving you, yes, I mean that it serves you financially, but we can do more with business than make money. We can build businesses that truly create value rather than harvest value.
This isn’t just theory. I’ve been in the trenches with entrepreneurs and small business owners for nearly a decade and have worked in just about every industry. My background as an Army logistic officer gives me uncommon strategic, logistical, and organizational insight, and I’m a Creative Giant just like you. My work is featured in places like Inc., TIME, Forbes, Copyblogger, BNET, and the Washington Post and I’ve written a best-selling book that’s the What to Expect When You’re Expecting for entrepreneurs and small business owners.
Below you’ll find some of the articles, resources, and tools we’ve shared that’ll help you put together whatever you’re building. Some assembly required.
