Small Business Week: Must-Read Books and Special Events to Upgrade Your Life and Biz


This year, Small Business Week runs from May 5th – May 11th. What are your plans to grow as an entrepreneur and leader?

An entrepreneur is someone who develops an idea into a business and bears considerable risk when doing so. The NY Times reported that 4.4 million new businesses started in the new pandemic economy. As a small business owner, there were many times I wondered if my goal of having a sustainable business was possible. These books gave me the courage to stay on course. Access these books to help you strategize your next move in 2021.

Professional development helps leaders and entrepreneurs strengthen their resolve to work strategically in a manner that produces results. I hope you take this week to develop your goals further.


It’s Time for You To Upgrade!

I hope you will take the time to attend the Upgrade My Life and Biz Challenge! This is not your ordinary event. Come into a virtual space that is intimate, friendly and encouraging. As a result of attending this challenge, past participants have increased their earning power, made new connections, and discovered hidden potential. The focus of this challenge will teach you how to take DRASTIC ACTION in your personal life and business. One of the biggest obstacles my clients talk with me about is burnout, procrastination, and deferred dreams.
