Overview

This riveting story about heartbreak and prosperity holds plenty of drama and suspense. Frank Mills and his daughter Jennifer are deeply in debt and struggling to make ends meet when a robbery occurs at their little restaurant in the sleepy town of Royal Oak, Michigan. Fortunately a bright young millionaire named Jonathan Berkley is available to advise them. Jonathan shows them time and again that he is a powerful coach who knows how to empower people in business and give them the faith and strength they need to make it on their own. Frank and Jennifer's restaurant goes from being the cause of suicidal depression to a surprising success, using some of the same secrets revealed in Chandler and Beckford's bestselling non-fiction book: 9 Lies That Are Holding Your Business Back. Chandler and Beckford draw on their experience in business consulting and the arts to craft an entertaining, enlightening, and informative business-related novel. Readers will gain insights and discover simple truths about how to be successful in business, and in all areas of life.

Editorial Reviews

Ralph Lesebert
Cheaper to learn from others mistakes:
So why 5 stars? Because this book does a great job at what it does. It is not trying to be a complete business book. It does a great job in showing you that there is a difference between having a hobby that you are good at and turning it into a business. The difference is you have to spend as much or more time doing the business stuff, as you spend on the fun stuff. And if you do not excel at the business side, there will be a lot of pain.

All small business owners: a must read. Many insights to bring you a turn around in a small business. Written in an engaging fiction-style, many insights are taught to help you recognise the valuable resource you have in your small business & make the most out of it, & bring it to its potential for profit & success without going more deeply into debt or pouring money into forms of advertising that don't work. It gives great hope to business owners who have been discouraged by heavy adversity.
Craig Martel
YOU DON'T NEED AN MBA: This book is absolutely amazing. An easy to read novel loaded with PROVEN business principles rather than mere theory written by someone who has done it, AND you don't need an MBA to understand it. This book is what true mentorship is, principles which have actually been used successfully by someone presented in an easily understood format, leaving the choice to you, the reader, to implement and succeed, or to not implement and stagnate.
Elizabeth Andrews
This is as enjoyable as the E-myth. Its story equally enchanting. The writing flows descriptively and conversationally. I was quickly turning the pages to discover another business myth dispelled by a life-truth.
This work is a good yardstick to use in sizing up your business AND your passion for it....because without the latter, you're in the wrong line of work!
A refreshing common sense approach, written by two winners in their fields!!!
Jack Cooper
Would I rather just have straightforward advice if I wanted to start a business like the restaurant depicted in this book? Not on your life. Small Business Millionaire, similar to Who Moved My Cheese, The One-Minute Manager, and a handful of others in the genre of motivational literature, taps into a great teaching tool: the story as object lesson, as proof of solvable problems, as hypothetical example. For that, I have high praise for this work.
