About me
Who I am
Hi, I am Iain. Founder of Col DC, a company the helps owners, freelancers and entrepreneurs build better businesses. I've been researching the struggles faced by entrepreneurs for several years now. 

I've been using my findings to help coach leaders and teams in some of the largest and some of the smallest companies in the world.

Over the last 6 months enough people have said I should turn my research into a book, that I took the plunge to publish the Better Business Report.

The Story
Why I wrote this

This book is not just theory. It is based on extensive research of real companies, surviving and thriving in today's competitive business landscape, coupled with my learnings from private coaching and consulting.

It is distilled from research from over 400 people, my private coaching and a collection of 48 notebooks that I created over the last few years.

I am in the business of helping people and seeing all this valuable information sitting on my desk everyday, not being read by anyone, felt like an awful waste.

What's inside

This book shows you how to build a better business by getting the foundations right.

Most books share one single point of view, but this one takes a more global viewpoint. To create this book I sought the opinions of real life entrepreneurs, owners, and freelancers to find out what actually works in the real world.

This book won't give you a magic bullet, a cookie cutter template, or that one secret tip (that nobody is talking about).

Instead the ideas, research and exercises in this book will help you approach your company in a new way, so you can build an incredible business of your own.

Inside you will find simple, clear, and practical advice on how to make your business, no matter the size, stand out, survive and thrive.
