Book Description

Why do so many businesses run by couples never give them the Lifestyle of their Dreams? With couples working too many hours for too little money, it is easy to see how a business can stress a personal relationship to breaking point, and make work/life balance all work and no play.

Married to the Business follows the trials, tribulations and triumphs of husband and wife, Luke and Anna Taylor, who together run a building business. Their story is a fusion of real life experiences of many couples in business together with whom Dr Greg Chapman has worked, and how they overcame the difficulties they faced.

Accompany the Taylors on their journey as they learn how to turn the nightmare their business has become, back into one that could grow and give them the income they wanted without damaging their life together.

Married to the Business will show you:

-Why so many businesses run by couples generate profitless turnover How to find the time to run a business and have a life together
-How disagreements between partners can be resolved without conflict
-How to re-organise a business in a way that produces results

Included with this book is a workbook that can be used with the Action Steps in the text that you can use to make the business you run together achieve the potential you know it has. Married to the Business is an easy to read and easy to understand step-by-step guide presented as a Case Study that will enable couples in business together to realise their dreams.

Discover how, by following the steps that Luke and Anna took to transform their business into one that could run without them, you too can have a business that delivers the lifestyle you seek with your partner, whether married, or just good friends.

With the ever-increasing flood of `self-help' and coaching books coming onto the market, specifically geared towards those who run their own businesses, I've found it essential to check the credibility of each potential `enterprise saviour' before parting with my hard-earned dollars. I don't want to see all the money I put into a book just go to line the writer's pockets and turn him/her into a `celebrity guru'. I'm more interested in investing in a book that adequately rewards the writer, but more importantly, proves over time to be of significant value to my own business and me, because of its sound content and advice!
Most of us want solid material that is credible, not just a concoction of esoteric stories that entertain, but do little to empower us towards a better business.
`Married to the Business', recently published by Dr Greg Chapman, well-known business advisor and marketing strategist, shows its credibility in a key statement Greg makes in the Postscript: "The situations within this story are based on real events ... an amalgam of many husband and wife clients from a wide range of business sectors with whom I have worked."
This series of anecdotal episodes tells stories of how a struggling but well-intentioned couple started out optimistically in business; had some success but failed to evolve into a seriously profitable entity; began to flounder and were at risk of closing down; and how with the application of some `business-savvy' experience and wisdom, were able to steer their business back to success.
It's entirely believable. Many of us will know of people with a similar story to tell, but regrettably, too many of these people fail to find an objective analyst and advisor such as Greg.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful Primer December 19, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whilst much of the information contained in this book should be common sense, common sense is so rare these days that it's almost a superpower.

Good usable advice in an easy to use format that should be suitable for business owners of all 'levels'.
