Free Book Promo: Small Business Big Pressure by Darryl Lyons

A Faith-based Approach to Guide the Ambitious Entrepreneur 

by M. J. Joachim

In the interest of helping as many authors as I can on this blog, I’d like to share an email that was sent to me recently. With permission, I’m copying the email like a press release in its entirety. I have not read the book, but after reading the email, believe it might be one some of you will benefit from, so I’m passing the information along, to let you decide if this book will ultimately help you in your goals to achieve success with your writing business or anything else you do.

Small Business Big Pressure provides wisdom and knowledge for business owners of all ranges, including the 20-year business veteran or the soon-to-be entrepreneur. It helps entrepreneurs shape the growth of their businesses through faith-based principles. Lyons, also a small business owner, crafted the book to help readers understand that when a business owner aligns all facets of his company with God, something special happens.

Lyons, who co-owns San Antonio-based PAX Financial Group, explained how Small Business Big Pressure came to be.

"When PAX Financial Group began to get attention after being recognized by local newspapers and magazines as one of the best places to work, I began to receive phone calls from small business owners asking about operations, systems, leadership, sales, and much more," said Lyons.

"The leaders of these companies ranged from start up to established. Some of them were even executives of very established business! Many owners felt as though they were on an island without a map. To help solve this, I started to teach classes to the community for free. After some time, I'd amassed a lot of business content and realized that I had enough for a book. So I wrote for a year with feedback from about 15 small business owners. The final product is built with an entrepreneur in mind: small chapters, easy to digest, white pages, and well spaced. Hey, we're busy!"

The book, which originally debuted in 2014, has gained a relaunch after New York City-based Morgan James Publishing picked up its rights. The firm specializes in supporting entrepreneurial-minded authors such as Lyons. The book is currently available from retailers, including Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Books-a-Million, and has earned rave reviews from readers - including a perfect 5-star rating from Amazon customers.

"I hope that when other entrepreneurs read the book they will better understand the basics of business. They will learn about cash flow and financial statements in one of the most practical formats ever written. Why? Because it is written for small business owners by a small business owner," said Lyons.

"Many business books are written by academics, not one in the trenches. We'll also cover mission statements, leadership, training, firing, and creating a company culture. I authentically share how my faith has guided my decision making process and helped overcome the worry, pressure, and confusion that all small business owners experience."

This truly sounds like an excellent book and resource, not solely for small business owners, but for writers too. As much as we enjoy our craft, there is a small business that needs to be tended to if we are ever going to market and sell our stories and articles. There’s a whole lot of work we need to do behind the scenes, to maximize our opportunities, and it’s not just about sharing our work on social media. You know what I’m talking about, because it’s the part of the job few of us actually enjoy. Hey, we’d rather be writing, right? If only life were that easy, but since it’s not, this might be a resource worth having to help us when we have to dig our heels deep within the trenches of everything not writing, so we can actually reap the fruits of our labor. Again, I haven’t read it, so if you do pick up a copy, be sure and add your review to the list on Amazon, Goodreads and wherever else you share your opinion on books you’ve read.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I truly do appreciate it and look forward to seeing you again soon. Oh, and please don’t forget to share this post today, so others can learn about this book too. Thanks!
