If you’re like most small business owners and solopreneurs, you’re hunting for the next great tip that will make running your business easier and help improve your bottom line.
You are not alone.
Most people like you just want to have a business that helps them make the most of the lifestyle they have dreamed of — not necessarily some glitzy life lounging on the beach sipping mai tais — but a life that fits for them. Does that sound like you? You came to the right place.
I’ve worked with hundreds of small business owners over the years. You are a hardy lot. Your enthusiasm and ability to overcome huge obstacles inspires me. I began my consulting firm in 1996 because I saw small businesses struggling everywhere I looked. We wear so many hats and sometimes it just takes a little help from an “outsider” to kick us in the right direction.
You’ll find lots of tips and tools on this site that will help you do just that.
- Marketing tips that will help you get the word out to your prospects and clients
- Ways to improve your cash flow and pump up that bottom line

But the primary key to your success is to DO something.
And you can start right now by signing up for my small biz tips. Thousands of smart business owners get my small business tips in their email box every week. Here’s what a few of them have to say:
Denise, I love your emails and so many times it feels like you’re in my head. I’ve had a hard time calling myself an expert because it feels so many are out there that know WAAAY more than I do. Thank you for all your guidance! ~ Desiree Wolfe, Brand Coach and PR Services for Entrepreneurs, Coaches, Authors & Speakers
Of all the emails I get about building a business, your emails are my favorite. They have personality and they are to the point. No fluff involved. I love that. ~ Joy Boothe, Marketing Consultant

A little about me and why I do what I do. For over twenty years, I worked for a large Fortune 500 company helping company leaders, departments and teams create and put their plans into action to make change happen. That’s where I gained much of my experience. I’ve always been known as the “action lady.” (It’s no coincidence that my initials are DO.) That’s the person who spurs others into action to get things done. You simply can’t win in business without taking action — and it has to be the right action.
In 2004, I started my first blog Just for Small Business. That’s how my publisher, Wiley.com found me. They were interested in the writing I’d done about cash flow issues in small business and in 2006, my book Small Business Cash Flow: Strategies for Making Your Business a Financial Success was published. Your bottom line – the cash in your business – is what will make your business a success. More businesses fail because of insufficient cash flow than for any other reason.
The best way to have a sustainable business is to take action. Now is the best time to begin.
