What will you get from reading this book?

  • Action you can take to improve your business and sell your products.
  • Ideas you can use to make running your business easier.

  • Pricing for your products and services.
  • Real hints & tips you can make use of.

Creating a product is the easy part - the business side of things can often be more challenging (e.g. marketing, selling, running your business, etc.). 

Practical ideas, hints & tips to help you with your own products and business – based on the author's own experiences, a lot of what is covered is what the author wished they knew when they started.
