Jill Brennan

Jill Brennan has worked with many small business owners that are overwhelmed by the complexity of marketing their products or services and frustrated by their reliance on ‘marketing types’ that sell them what they have rather than what the business needs. Jill realized there was a gap in the market for marketing specialists to provide coaching and training to empower small businesses to develop their own internal marketing resources that suit their business.

The Approach...
Jill takes a hands-on, practical approach to helping small businesses develop marketing expertise and systems that are repeatable and scalable. This enables your own internal marketing smarts to expand to meet your needs without losing any valuable knowledge and experience gained along the way.

After returning from a stint overseas, Jill setup her own business to sell products online. While her first product was not successful, she gained valuable (and expensive!) insights into what worked and what didn’t. She was then able to use that experience to run successful marketing campaigns for a range of companies in the US, UK, Europe and Australia.

This book gives business owners what to look out for, and the procedures to implement that will protect their hard earned cash and assets. Through stories and lessons learned from entrepreneurs who have been there, you’ll discover how to handle such situations as: My bookkeeper was going through a nasty divorce; Don’t give out bonus checks; I almost hired a CFO; My bookkeeper was making fake deposits in QuickBooks; I paid $3,718 for employees to eat at their desks.

Debbie Anderson debbie anderson

Born in England, Debbie Anderson is a natural healer who has worked in the magical sphere of spirituality all of her life, bringing forth many modalities that have manifested and evolved along the way. 

She has been using Tarot decks and giving intuitive spiritual readings for over 30 years in the UK, Canada, US and Australia.  She now lives in Ontario, Canada.

In Debbie's own words...

Debbie Anderson debbie anderson

Debbie Anderson - Ontario, Canada

I filled my trunk with 500 books & hit the road going from West to Eastern Canada stopping at every store I felt would buy. 5 months & 23,000kms later I sold over 2000 decks.

Big learning curve as I assumed I was not a salesman. 

Still a team of one, grass roots approach, but growing awareness by being authentic not wooey! 

Debbie isn't someone I would normally feature on the show and generally speaking, any talk or tarot cards, the spirit world and mediums will have me running for cover.

HOWEVER - as funky thinkers, we often need to see past our own prejudices and pick ideas and options out of that which most other people (the normalites) will ignore. Good job that Debbie is speaking at the author marketing conference.
