This is NOT what you signed up for when you decided to become an entrepreneur.

It’s time to run your business so it does not run you!

  • Build the right type of business for you and your goals

  • Eliminate the headaches and hassles of hiring and managing a team

  • Use the 10 key systems happy and successful entrepreneurs rely on

  • Structure your day so that you can get everything done and still have plenty of time off (including weekends!)

"In the 10 years of Box of Crayons we've hit three income plateaus where I've been working my butt off and I've been certain it's IMPOSSIBLE to do more. And each time I've managed to automate part of the business - and our income (and my free time) has increased again. We're at another plateau right now. And Tina's book is one of the tools I'm using to find out how to make the next leap."
Michael Bungay Stanier, Senior Partner, Box of Crayons & author of 'Do More Great Work'

David Neagle, Author of The Millions Within & Master Income Acceleration Coach

"Tina’s done it again with The Entrepreneur's Trap! She has figured out how to escape overwhelm and invested years of her own time in fine-tuning her systems so you don't have to. Why try to figure it how to automate and streamline your business by reinventing the wheel when she has already mastered it? This is required reading for any entrepreneur who wants to build a business with a solid foundation for growth and unlimited success."
Fabienne Fredrickson, Client Attraction Mentor

"Tina, I met you at the Savor event when Donna Cravotta introduced us this spring. I bought a copy of your book and just completed it. I feel like I owe you a giant thank you for writing it. My business is less than a year old and your book provided me with incredible insights and was very thought-provoking. I don't have the money for a coach like you or a Tiffany so the book was about all I could afford and boy was it worth it! Like you, I don't like the idea of a 5 year plan or even a year plan (sometimes I don't even know what I'm having for breakfast that very morning:)), but when I read your suggestion to just do the next 3 things on my list, well, that I could handle. Suffice to say I wrote down the next 3 things to do which was to reach out to three women and recruit them as potential speakers for my business, Running With Heels. I kept putting it off and I'm happy to say that 2 of the 3 women agreed immediately and they are both authors with a substantial following. The 3rd I haven't heard from yet but I'll certainly follow up with her. So thank you and if you do find yourself in NYC again, I'd love you to be one of our future speakers as well."
Jenny Powers,
