Welcome to my website dedicated to small business owners everywhere. It’s primarily about my book, Characters Who Can Make Or Break Your Small Business—an entertaining mixture of anecdotes and advice told with humour in a conversational style.

So why did I write it? Well, after years of unsuccessfully searching for a comprehensive book on running a typical small business, I took Toni Morrison’s advice: “If there is a book that you want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

It was over forty years in the making and took three years to write. If this book doesn’t give you a good insight into the roller coaster ride that is small business ownership, not much else will. The elation, the despair, the successes, the failures, the laughs—it’s all there, told through 39 characters.
