In Riches in Niches: How to Make It BIG in a Small Market, Susan explores the multiple factors that separate the "experts" from the service professionals who may have identical-if not better-skills, but whom no one has ever heard of.

• The GEL Formula: Friedmann's proven technique that shows service professionals how to find the professional niche that makes the best use of their skills while yielding maximum profit.
• The Seven Secrets nichepreneuers need to know to create, claim, and benefit from their Expert Identity.
• Creative ways to create secondary, even tertiary, income streams capitalizing on the benefits of "Being the Expert."

Friedmann knows what she's talking about. For more than 20 years, she's been the "Tradeshow Coach," one of the exhibiting industry's foremost experts. Combine that expertise with insights from other well-known nichepreneuers, and you've got a book that's jam packed with useful information to transformtoday's career into tomorrow's success story.
