Small Business Hacks

Running a small business can be hard, confusing and mysterious.

Many entrepreneurs start a company to solve a problem, and want to focus on doing just that. Unfortunately, there are a lot of aspects of starting and running a business that seem to get in the way of that pursuit, such as:

  • Marketing and selling your products or services
  • Providing an outstanding customer experience
  • Leading and managing employees, freelancers and vendors
  • Managing your finances.

This book solves those problems—and many more.

Small Business Hacks is a simple guide for current and aspiring business owners. It’s intended to take the mystery out of small business ownership, to show you how to accomplish tasks in as few steps as possible, to relieve the angst over searching for the right solution on the web. These 100 small business hacks are truly your shortcut to success.

These hacks are from our combined 50+ years in business both as small business owners and as journalists interviewing successful entrepreneurs and thought leaders about their paths to prosperity. We also tapped the best industry experts to fill in any gaps.

It has never been easier to start a business, but with so much competition all over the world, it’s also easy to fail.

Small Business Hacks is not a traditional book—it’s not meant to be read from beginning to end. Instead, it’s built for immediate action. Jump to the challenge you’re currently facing, and find out how to solve it—now!

Keep this guide handy. It gives you immediate access to solutions you can quickly enact, which gives you more time to do what you love at your company.

We realize not every problem can be solved in an instant. For those, we’ve listed additional resources at the end of each hack, so you can get more information.

We wrote this book to make your entrepreneurial journey smoother.
