Rank #1: Episode 62- The need to recharge
We all know what it’s like when we start to feel a little fried in our business. Long hours, pressure and stress, an ever increasing “to do” list and before we know it, we can burn ourselves out. And this has some long term ramifications.
Understanding that burn out can impact any small business owner and what that could lead to, makes this a very important topic for discussing, especially as it feels like we are swimming against the tide on a daily basis.
In this episode we take a deep dive into the world of small business owner burnout, what causes it and what we call do about it. An important episode for every single small business owner on the planet.

Rank #2: Episode 61- The subscription economy
Whether you know it or not, we’ve all become a part of the subscription economy and it’s important to understand just how significant this has become in recent years and why we need to be looking at ways to get our small business onboard.
Every month we pay various subscription dues for everything from what we watch on television to our telephone service to various apps and platforms that we use in our business. We are very happy to pay little bits for a product or service every month, as opposed to large chunks.
This new payment and pricing model is appealing for many reasons - the big question is how can you use the subscription model in your business? In this episode we are offering our thoughts on the best way to embrace the subscription model in your small business.Check out Subscribed by Tien Tzuo Buy the Business Over Breakfast Vol 1 BookBree James Website PakMag WebsiteThe PakMag Parents Podcast Andrew Griffiths WebsiteAuthorvilleAndrew’s weekly INC columnAndrew’s Flying Solo column

Rank #10: Episode 53- Mastering the art of saying NO - it’s not as easy as we think.
Most of us struggle with saying NO. For whatever reason that little two letter word can be the hardest one to say. Sadly if we don’t master the art of saying no, we pay the price. After a while we tend to either burn ourselves out or get so frustrated that we erupt and say things out of anger and frustration as opposed to calm logic.
Like most aspects of doing business, saying no is simply a skill set. Bree and Andrew share their own take on this topic and of course their own experiences. Not all are good - and that’s what this show is all about, sharing honestly in a way that will be relevant and practical for the small business owners listening in. So if you are one of those people who struggles to say no, this episode of the Business Over Breakfast show is for you.
