Business consultant and Premium Member Helen McIntosh knows that when a small business is thriving and running smoothly, it’s magical for the owner. She knows that most people who open small businesses do so because they’re experts in their field – plumbing, hairdressing, etc. – but they don’t know how to be a business owner. She knows that 60% of small businesses fail within three years because they don’t have proper systems in place.
It’s because Helen knows these things that she started her business, Operations Genie, a mentoring and consultancy service that grants business owners their wishes to be more confident and build better businesses. Last December, Helen published Operations Genie – Practical Ways to Control & Grow Your Business to help even more small business owners achieve the lives they want.
In the book, you’ll learn the three key areas of operating a business: self, strategy, and systems. Readers will learn how to focus and organise themselves, develop marketing and succession strategy, and implement internal systems.
“While leads and sales conversations are the lifeblood of business, the foundations are equally important. My book focuses on the foundations. Establish the foundations and you can unlock the gold.”

Are you thinking of writing a book? Helen says go for it!
“The process of writing the book forced me to clarify my thoughts and the information that I wanted to communicate into logical chapters. I’ve come out of the process with a stronger and clearer brand and a fabulous lead magnet that adds real value to business owners.”
