About the book
The Big Stretch delivers a four-tiered self-evaluation and empowerment program for jumpstarting a new business, new career, or new idea―and maintaining high levels of success long-term.
One of today’s most effective coaches for entrepreneurs, Teneshia Jackson Warner walks you through a “career workout” routine designed to move you from idea to goal.
First, you’ll learn what type of dreamer you are: Hobby, Career, Make-It-Happen, Activist, or CEO. Based on that, you will discover your Dreamer's Risk Tolerance and understand your Dreamer's Ancestry to help gauge how much time, support, and resources you can apply toward your Stretch goal. You’ll then create a One-Year Dream Projection to develop clear, realistic goals. Finally, you’ll begin your 90-Day STRETCH program involving weekly exercises to build and strengthen your “business physique.”
Whether you want to escape the grind of a 9-to-5 job, improve an existing business, or simply get your dreams off the ground, The Big Stretch provides the knowledge and insight you need to turn your ideas into reality.
"An inspiring and motivating roadmap for dreaming big and jumpstarting the journey to achieve success with meaning."
-- Marc Pritchard, Chief Brand Officer of Procter & Gamble
"As a small business owner, I welcome a book that serves as a boot camp for business. There is always a long distance between our dreams and their realization. This useful bridge will help people like me get to where we need to be in business and in life."
