ebook-coverSo why the book?

by Francis Newman

I was inspired by the people I met at my monthly Pitstop networking events. I heard stories of despair, bravery and success and admired the way people coped with the ups and downs of business, family and relationships. I knew there were more business owners wanting to learn and benefit from people who’ve already resolved the issues they were facing.

So I decided to create a marketing platform to promote small business owners who offered inspiration, guidance and help based on real-world experience to those who needed it. Each contributor would provide insights, tips and practical help on improving business performance and personal relationships.

This is your opportunity to gain more recognition and credibility for helping others.
You’ll be one of 12 distributors contributing to an enormous resource to help entrepreneurs and small business owners.


It’s also an easy route to establishing yourself on the publishing ladder as a credible author.

Becoming a published author will give you increased visibility and credibility, establishing you as an expert in your marketplace. This book is about ‘you’ and the many ordinary men and women that put greatness into the economic machine known as Great Britain.

Book structure and focus

The book will be structured into 12 stories each by a separate non-competing distributor. Each story is a self-contained chapter
of about 3,000 words, a biography page and portrait photo. The focus will be on your journey as a business owner, the lessons you’ve learned and how others could learn from and be inspired by your experiences. Tips will be positioned within each topic section
and highlighted in bold throughout your chapter.

Don’t underestimate the value of your hard-earned lessons and experiences.
Other business owners are keen to learn how you resolved the issues they’re currently facing.

As you know, business impacts on your personal relationships such as your partner, family and friends. So whether you’re single,
in a relationship, married, divorced, single parent or coming to terms with a bereavement; thousands more are going through
similar experiences right now and need your guidance, help and encouragement.

This is the untold reality behind the veneer of success and yet we all have to deal with it.

Professional help and support with your story

You’ll receive professional copywriting help with your chapter. I’m keen to help you tell your story. I’ll help you discover your
hidden gems and ensure they’re presented in a compelling way. You’ll be given a topics list covering a wide range of business
and personal issues. It’s up to you to decide what you want to include.

Remember, it’s about your journey in business – the lessons and wisdom you’ve acquired and how others can learn from your experiences.
