‘Run Your Business Better’ – Free book giveaway

| May 15, 2018

Win a free copy of business consultant Stephen Barnes’ book ‘Run Your Business Better’.

Are you a business owner and want to run your business more effectively? Steven Barnes’ book, ‘Run Your Business Better is the book you need to help your business thrive.

Many small businesses fail because the business itself is not run well, rather than because the business owner is a bad practitioner at their trade or the economic environment is hostile.

Stephen Barnes, the Principal Consultant at Byronvale Advisors, has been advising businesses and not-for-profit organisations for over 25 years. Based on his experience from startups to multinational companies, and in a vast array of industries, Stephen brings together his key concepts in an easy to read and understandable way.

In addition to essential information for well-established firms looking to grow or sustain their position in an increasingly competitive marketplace, the book includes a section for budding entrepreneurs about to embark on a new business venture offering a checklist of considerations and tips to maximise their prospects for success.

Run Your Business Better’ is available for major bookshops, online bookstores such as Booktopia,, as an e-book from Amazon, and direct from Byronvale Advisors.

The author has generously offered a couple of free copies to readers of First 5000. To enter the draw to receive your copy, email editor@first5000.com.au and explain, in 50 words or less, which aspects of small business operation you’d like Stephen to tackle in future articles for the site.
