Many business owners across the country are doing it wrong

According to a new book by author Nick Leighton many business owners across the country are doing it wrong. Many dream of owning a business, but the reality of actually doing so can leave entrepreneurs burnt out or trading too much time for too little reward. But commercial success, personal fulfillment, and quality time spent with loved ones aren’t mutually exclusive. Business owners just need a competitive advantage to learn how to make their companies work for them, and to discover their own path to success.

Leighton says, “Owning a company is a pain. You’ve experienced sleepless nights, wondering how you’re going to pay your team members, your rent, your taxes, and yourself. Business owners often suffer considerable frustration in their personal lives and risk losing their marriages. It’s only fair to ask: Why do you want to own your own company?”

Leighton has the answer in Exactly Where You Want to Be – A Business Owner’ Guide to Passion, Profit & Happiness. His easy reading but information-filled book is a must-read for any business owner or budding entrepreneur. Author Nick Leighton shares his passions for business and offers sound insights along with personal anecdotes (from getting hijacked in Pakistan to meeting his wife at the Playboy Mansion), enticing the reader to turn the page. Highly recommended for anyone pursuing their dream business.

Corporate coach and serial entrepreneur Nick Leighton has helped countless business owners reset their goals and rediscover their passion. In Exactly Where You Want to Be, he presents a framework for how to set achievable personal and professional objectives, as well as how to tackle tricky issues, including leadership, sales, marketing, outsourcing, management, hiring, communications, operations, consumer experience, and adapting to an ever-changing market.

Leighton sums it up, “Life is for living. Your business can give you both financial and individual triumph, if you learn how to build it the smart way instead of the hard way.”

Nick Leighton has spent more than twenty years working with entrepreneurs and business owners to take their personal and professional lives to the next level. He has lived and worked in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and South America – now residing in Southern California – and has worked with Fortune 500 companies, SMB’s, non-profit organizations, political parties and members of royalty.

Driving this work is a single vision: business owners should make more money and have more free time to achieve their life goals—whether that goal is writing more, partying at the Playboy Mansion, attending concerts, or living it up while on exotic travel. After all, the more we love our lives, the more we love our work.
