Think Big-Picture Thoughts Weekday activities are often "deep in the weeds," managing the day-to-day and measuring time in hours or days, but weekends are a great time to pull back, says Frances Schagen, founder of the online networking community Business Owners Success Club.

Working with Frances not only changed my business, but changed my life. First, she helped me believe that anything was possible, then she helped me pinpoint what was most important so we could design the business and life that would get me there. She helped me make the necessary changes of selling one of my businesses, moving the other and streamlining it to work even better. Now I make a great living working from my strengths and I get to spend most of my days close to my horses. You can have the business and life you want and Frances can help you get it.

I took the little blue book to the beach and whilst the kids played, I had an amazing two hours. Your Effortless Business, is an easy, relaxing and engaging read. Frances is insightful and brings together lots of ideas from experts in an informative manner. Frances has put away all the business jargon that dominates entrepreneur's lives and arranged a great way to view your business that can be easily understood. Simple, direct and thought provoking - many a time I had to pause, just to digest key points. You can put this in your purse or suit pocket and read it at leisure. A very useful resource that will be used time and time again. Great job Frances - looking forward to your next one! https://www.amazon.com/Your-Effortless-Business-Frances-Schagen/dp/1475022204
