LET'S GET STARTED
The Borden Workbook is part business book, part self-help book that provides you with the tactical and practical advice, efficiencies, formulas and perspective you need. Organize and succeed as an entrepreneur at your own pace, within your own budget – with competence and confidence.
As entrepreneurs, we often know what we want to do, but we come to realize that we need extreme organization or increased knowledge or infrastructure as we develop and grow our business. Sometimes we feel stuck, or we feel that we need a boost at the “beginning” or “part way” into our venture. We are most aware of the help we need in our business activities, but it’s of utmost importance that we tend to our energized, passionate, determined minds as well. The relentless (maybe obsessive, in a positive way?) drive that makes us good entrepreneurs comes with deep challenges – both in business and in our lives.
Determined to bring the model from Borden Communications’ one-on-one consulting and coaching to as many as possible, we have created The Borden Workbook to support you as you launch, grow, and nurture your business, alongside consultation, or as a standalone guide. We aim to have you put down what you know, prod you to consider things you might not yet, make you more connected to your work to endure the highs and lows, focus on goals with assistance on the journey to reach them, and connect your personal experience, and your physical and emotional well-being to your work. This book contains tactical and practical inspiration and will have you organized and give you clarity, focus and lead you to success.
Take charge of your business development, The Borden Workbook gives you tools you’ll need to do so – all in one place.

While Borden Communications is a small firm, I am surprised at the speed and volume of work it can do for us. I love working with Lisa because she is frank, brilliant and fast. And we have and will continue to get great results from our work together. I am fortunate to work with her now and I only wished I did it years early.Jean Eng, President at Pure + Simple
