The action plan for building your entrepreneurial empire—one day at a time
While every entrepreneur knows that the key to success is business growth, few ever see it happen. Why? Because they know how to plant seeds, but they don’t understand that the real work lies in helping that seed grow—which takes knowledge, persistence, and patience.
The Entrepreneurs Book of Actions helps you develop the mindset of a true entrepreneur and provides manageable steps for making your business vision a reality. Informative, inspiring, and based on real-life, hard-earned lessons, it provides common-sense, daily exercises you can jump into on day one. Learn how to drive sustainable business growth by:
Breaking bad habits—and developing good ones
Managing your time and money more effectively
Hiring the right people for the right job
Minimizing the effort required to perform basic tasks
Motivating your staff to be mission-focused
Creating “free” time to feed your innovative side
You’ll begin to see your business in a completely new way—with a sense of clarity and purpose. You’ll begin identifying the issues that really affect your business—not the ones that feed your anxiety. You’ll become the kind of leader other entrepreneurs look up to—calm, optimistic, driven.
The Entrepreneurs Book of Actions will provide the direction you need to make the best use of your time, your energy, and your creativity. It’s not isn’t a quick fix. It’s work. But it’s manageable, it’s proven effective—and it will pay off big.

Who Should Read This Book?
Are you an entrepreneur that has a killer idea and you’re looking for a way to take your company to the next level? Are you losing sleep over raising your next financing round? Have you established initial momentum with your product and you’re now ready to raise some outside money to take your company to the next level?
You’re not alone. There are thousands of entrepreneurs that are struggling to build their companies and raise money to fuel that growth.
This book is a blueprint for entrepreneurs, company founders, startup CEOs and business owners, to help them build more successful businesses and get them funded.
Raising outside capital for your company is a process, not an event.
In this eye-opening book, serial entrepreneur and former tech CEO, Patrick Henry explains how to build a fundable company. He reveals the truth about what investors are looking for and presents a three-part plan to smash through the typical business roadblocks, allowing you to move far beyond the bootstrapping stage.
Successful startups are first and foremost successful businesses.
The PLAN COMMIT WIN methodology will dramatically improve your chances of being successful and getting the money you need to fuel the growth of your business. The PLAN COMMIT WIN methodology is not a “pie in the sky” or theoretical approach to running businesses and raising capital. It is the same process that the author used to build successful businesses, raise over $200 million in equity capital for his companies, and execute in over $2 billion in M&A transactions. If you follow the steps of this process, you will significantly improve your chances of being successful, and dramatically improve your chances of getting funded.
How long does it take to implement this process?
It takes about 90 days to fully implement the PLAN COMMIT WIN methodology, assuming you are starting from scratch. If you already have a plan, you can still benefit from PLAN COMMIT WIN as a screening process to see what components you might be missing from your business plan or investor presentation. If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, company founder, startup CEO or business owner, this book is for YOU! If you want to have a winning startup company, raise enough cash to execute your plan, and succeed as an entrepreneur, there is a path, and it’s in PLAN COMMIT WIN. If you are serious about building a billion-dollar company, then PLAN COMMIT WIN is the book that will help get you there.
Take action, build a successful business, and get it FUNDED!
So what’s the NEXT STEP? Take action. Invest in yourself. Invest in your company. Invest in your future! Invest in PLAN COMMIT WIN!
Do you ever say, “I can only do ten things at once!”
Is your “to-do” list as long as the menu at The Chessecake Factory?
Is “down time” riding in the elevator on the way to your next meeting?
If this sounds familiar, Success Without Stress is the book for you and your overwhelmed friends. It’s full of smart, effective strategies to “calm the hell down!” The writing is fun, informative and snappy. It’s like a big sister sharing her inside secrets to success.
Do you know that you can actually make more money with less stress? You’re not successful because you’re able to go in five directions at once. You’re successful in spite of it. The calmer and more grounded you become, the more success you’ll experience. You’ll have the presence of mind to make decisions thoughtfully, communicate clearly, and build your business purposefully.
The chapters in the book are short. You’ll have time to read them. Learn a new technique at lunch and try it out in the afternoon. Find a chapter that resonates while waiting in your client’s reception area. Then give it a whirl in the meeting. Read a chapter in the bathroom. When you leave, wearing your power lipstick, test-run a new strategy on your staff.
The book is designed to develop new habits. For example, how do you fire an abusive client with grace? How can you organize your schedule so you feel accomplished at the end of the day? How about learning to keep a professional distance between you and your employees?
You deserve a life. A good one. Having a business doesn’t mean you need to give that up. Isn’t it time to reduce feeling overwhelmed? Once you master the techniques in Success Without Stress, you’ll achieve more success and make more money. Oh, and be happier.
