As a small business owner myself, I aim to help others grow their own businesses.

I’m the author of two books to help the self-employed, as well as the creator of an online course to help people start and grow a small business

James McBrearty, through sharing his own experiences and knowledge, provides an invaluable guide to business owners worldwide. Businesses, like aircraft, can experience times of turbulence; Chocks Away: Achieving Freedom from the 9 to 5 will show you how to help your business takeoff, expertly navigate through economic fluctuations and changes in the global business climate, and land safely at the destination you planned for-instead of ending up somewhere else!

With this book, James continues the purposeful work he began with his first book, Chocks Away—helping small business owners achieve more by applying simple, affordable-to-implement tips that will propel business performance and free up time to enjoy other areas of life outside of business.
