Briefly summarize your book: its genesis, purpose, thesis, story, and results to date (up to 250 words).

Each day over 27 million small business owners around the world open their doors to a feeling of overwhelm and confusion. They feel that panic because most have no idea how to grow their business' profits.

The typical response is to work more hours, spend more money, offer more products, or adopt more marketing tactics.

The irony is, "more" is rarely the solution.

Consistent, measurable business growth doesn't require radical overhauls, massive investments or huge transformations. It simply requires riding the momentum of small "10% Wins" in seven key areas of your business.

Cadenceis the story of a business owner and triathlon coach named JJ who left his stable job as a teacher to fulfill his dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Unfortunately, two years after opening his bike shop, JJ finds himself in a place that is all too familiar to most business owners, struggling to stay afloat. That all changes, fast, when an athlete he coaches teaches him how to turn the store's profitability around with seven key "10% Wins."

Praised and awarded by small-business owners and academics alike,Cadenceuniquely communicates entrepreneur and advisor Pete Williams's framework embraced by entrepreneurs around the world as "The 7 Levers of Business".

The book is projected to be our leading business title this year, surpassing all expectations (including the original 50,000 print-run),and the audiobook is currently in production to extend its reach globally.
