(which isn’t actually a book club…)

I  would encourage everyone to develop the habit of reading at least ONE personal development book, per month – and I hope that sharing some of my favourite books with you, will help you to develop that habit.

Some say ‘it’s a brilliant business book full of successful proven ideas’, but I didn’t write it for that reason either. Others have said ‘that my philosophy should be taught in schools and be compulsory reading in universities’.

BIG IDEAS... FOR SMALL BUSINESSES

"Two normal blokes from Plymouth" John and Jason have been working together, building businesses for over two decades!

They're the anti-gurus with a strong dislike of psuedo business psycho-babble. Their no-nonsense, straightforward approach with relateable and valuable advice has won them followers from all over the world. They've helped hundreds of business owners improve their businesses and lives.

The King of Can-do and the 'Lazy' Entrepreneur have a mountain of knowledge they're happy to share.

Could you DOUBLE your business 1% at a time?

Could you grow your business by just 1% this week? That doesn’t sound too hard, does it? Well, if you could grow your business by just 1% every week, after 69 weeks, you’d have DOUBLED your business!

These 1% gains are the same techniques used by the British Cycling Team that helped them turn a bunch of “also-rans” into world beaters, notching up forty-two medals in the last four Olympics, as well as winning six of the last seven Tour De France races.

The One Percent Club will show you EXACTLY how to implement these 1% gains into your business, and how they can stack up to REALLY grow your business.
