In this Under the Covers episode, we meet Fabi Preslar author of “Fabulous F Words of Business Ownership: Redefining Choice Words to Fuel Your Small Business.”

Fabi knows what it’s like to fail in business. Her father failed when she was young and her family lost everything. It happened in her family’s previous generation, too, and yet, she always wanted to be a business owner and it shows in the awards she has received along the roller coaster ride she calls owning a small business.

This book is about creating and growing a business. It’s part memoir and part how-to and how-not-to when running a business. From fear, failure, and fatigue to faith, flourish, and fusion, “Fabulous F Words of Business Ownership” chronicles one business owner’s footsteps and the choice words she redefined to fuel her small business.

Play
Read more

We sat down with Fabi Preslar to talk about the fun of having a business for 21 years, and for the last ten years it has become a family business with husband and daughter. Fabi is not afraid to use the Love word in business. Love, serve, and compassion is what Fabi has learned to live by in business and life.

Her company publishes independent book and magazines. They share the client’s real story, and they write about their authentic way of doing business that empowers and impacts the audience that reads their publications. They only take about 12 clients a year because to produce passion and create something that their clients can be proud of takes a lot of work and love. There are so many F words in business.
