FAQs About the Book

Fix Your Business is for entrepreneurs and owners facing challenges in an existing business and who want a systematic and practical plan for improving operations. Tired. Stressed. Overworked. If any of these adjectives describe how you feel regularly, this book is for you.

The principles in Fix Your Business are foundational to running a thriving small business. You can benefit from this knowledge before you start your business, so you begin on the right foot! In addition, I encourage you to check out my book Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months which is specifically for those who are looking to start their first business.

The 12 Ps are preparation, purpose, people, profit, processes, productivity, performance, product, presence, prospects, planning, and perseverance. In Fix Your Business, I’ve devoted a chapter to each of the Ps so you can diagnose the weak areas in your business and create a holistic plan for moving forward.

Yes! The book includes practical advice from my two-decades-long career helping small business owners, insights from interviews with top business experts, action steps at the end of every chapter, and much more.

Fix Your Business will teach you how to take control of each of the ’12 Ps’ so you can reduce chaos and stress and take back your life. Some of the things you’ll learn include:

    • How to build your leadership mindset
    • How to remove the daily stress of managing your small business finances
    • How to develop processes and systems that allow the owner to have time freedom
    • Rock solid techniques to improve people management
    • Step-by-step advice to create a sales system
    • And SO much more

From over two decades of working with small business owners, I have noticed a common theme. People start a business because they dream of the freedom that business ownership offers them. However, a few years in, they find themselves overburdened, overstressed, and overworked because they’ve built a business that can’t run without them. Truly living the dream life of a business owner requires you to set up your people, processes, planning (and all of the other 12 Ps!) so you can regain your time and focus on working on the business, not in the business. That’s exactly what I’ll help you do in Fix Your Business!

"Melinda Emerson has written a fabulously practical guide to help small businesses scale and address the many challenges that exist on that journey. I love her 12 Ps, which, frankly, businesses of any size could learn from. And the short fixes are genius. This is a must-read for anyone owning their own business."
