Estimates range from 50% to as high as 90% of businesses fail in the first five years. But for those that survive, a worse fate could be in store. Untold small businesses succeed only at stagnating, floundering, and ultimately enslaving the entrepreneur to a business of mediocrity. Like a pilot who spends hours taxiing on the runway, the entrepreneur feels trapped and hopeless in an earth-bound business. What gets a business off the ground? How can you get your business to truly take off? If you’re ready to pilot your business to new heights, this book was written for you.

"This book is a tremendous resource for entrepreneurs, and those looking to start a business. I highly recommend Twelve Seconds, it's definitely giving my business the lift it needs toward success!"
—Charity Kountz, Founder of Kountz Marketing Group
"As a business coach, I'm not a sage. I teach businesses owners to succeed at the fundamentals. I recommend this book precisely because it does not promise to reveal some mystical secret to business. Twelve Seconds is a practical, basic guide for entrepreneurs to follow."
—Jeff Sheets, Entrepreneur and Business Coach
