Greg Chapman

Greg shows small business owners how to multiply their profits and make their business run without them, using the proven principles from his best-selling book, The Five Pillars of Guaranteed Business Success. With an initial focus on the structure of the client's business, his focus moves to the major issues preventing the owner achieving their goals, whether they be marketing, sales or business management systems. Greg also works with many couples in business, for whom he wrote the award winning book, Married to the Business. For SBMS his focus is for businesses with turnover under $1million.
