Two big challenges stand between most business owners and their ability to grow a successful company. The first is the unwillingness to let go and step up – becoming less operational and more strategic – so their business can continue to grow. The second is lack of clarity around what the strategic priorities are that they need to focus on at different stages in the company’s life cycle.

Small Business CEO is designed to help you tackle these challenges. It breaks down the entrepreneurial business journey into four different stages, to help give you clarity and direction – and the right strategies – at each stage.

Each stage of growth is set out in an easy to understand format, with case studies, templates, checklists and worksheets to help guide you through.

The strategies apply across a multitude of business models, and are proven to give you more control and certainty in growing and managing your company from start-up through to sale. By employing these strategies you will make the shift from operational business owner to strategic CEO of a successful business.
