Adele Martin’s Pro-Tip for Small Business Owners:

“Read, just to read. Read as much as you can, and educate yourself around small business. There’s not a small business school you can take yourself off to, so you have to surround yourself with an A-Team of people, but also just read as much as you can.

A book I’ve started reading recently which I absolutely love is The 4 Hour Work Week. For anyone who is entrepreneurial, or likes to think outside the box this book is fantastic. It makes you think, as a small business owner, you don’t have to do everything yourself, you don’t have to be superwoman or superman…”

Special Bonus Offer:

Adele is a big believer in financial education and doesn’t think there is enough of it taught in schools or university. Having sound financial literacy becomes even more crucial if you are in your own business.
