Want to make more $$$ year-over-year? 
I'll show you how I've done it for the last 20 years!
Starting a business is easy — especially in the world of the internet we live in now. But making it last? That's HARD! Less than 30% of businesses make it to the decade mark and many that do get there while being worn out, stressed out and ready to quit. In fact, 82% of businesses in America today don't make more than $40,000 a year!

For 20 years, I've grown an agency from just a few thousand dollars to millions in sales. When I started Design Extensions at the age of 17, I had no idea what I was doing in business and spent many years figuring it out. I learned the hard way, but you don't have to!

I've packed this book with all of the things I've learned that have helped me grow the company, year over year, revenue and profit, for nearly two decades.
But that's not all...
I've worked with HUNDREDS of business owners over the past two decades to help them grow their businesses, but never before have I detailed all of the tools, tips, strategies, and ideas that have helped our agency last when many others collapsed.

After a lot of careful though, I decided to GIVE THIS BOOK AWAY to business leaders like you to help you grow — because that is my passion! This is a LIMITED TEST RUN and when quantities are out for the first batch, we may move to a traditional paid model of distribution, so get your copy now — FOR FREE!

Jay Owen
St. Augustine, FL
For nearly twenty years, Jay Owen has been building Design Extensions, a Florida-based marketing agency that’s grown its revenue and profits every year since 1999. Increasing the company’s revenue every single year hasn’t been easy, but in doing so, Jay has learned that building a thriving business is possible, and that you don’t have to sacrifice family or quality of life to do it. Jay has built Design Extensions while also being an invested husband to his wife, Claire, and father to their five children. In Building a Business That Lasts, he shares all his most sought-after advice for aspiring business owners and entrepreneurs who reject the endless hustle and instead embrace the idea of a better way to succeed.
Don't just take my word for it though—I've worked with hundreds of people over the last 20 years that have seen huge success using these same tips and ideas!

"An evergreen business book..."
Review By Michael Thompson
Don't waste time trying to wrap your head around the key principles of business all by yourself. This manual is one you'll keep at arms length for years to come.

As a mom, an entrepreneur, and a part of my family’s businesses, Building a Business that Lasts read like a collection of familiar anecdotes, challenged me to take actionable inventory on both my company and family today, all while humbly steering me, the reader, to make better choices in the future and how to remedy problems made by questionable ones in the past. Jay has a writing style that makes you want to read more, know more, and be more. Written with a competent, practical and positive voice, this is a book you can read at any stage of your family and business with take-aways to change both for the better.

Jared Duckett — Co-founder, Duckett Ladd, LLP

A great book for up-and-coming entrepreneurs and seasoned business owners who are looking for inspiration from someone they can relate to. Jay is a humble leader, hard-working family man whose writing and advice comes from the heart. His small business perspective makes it easy for people like you and me to feel like lasting success is not just a Silicon Valley fairytale, but totally attainable and not at the expense of family. 

Heather Vreeland — Group Publisher, Occasions Media Group

Jay has taken a topic that comes in a thousand different flavors, and has distilled it into a well written, easily digestable, and personal account of his path to building a successful, lasting business. He deftly takes the reader along for the journey, providing insight, guidance, lessons learned, and most importantly, concrete actionable ideas to find your own path to success. One of the things that struck me hardest was his refreshing take on the work-life "blender". Jay has the courage to recognize and admit the mistakes he has made along the way, and provides real-world solutions to avoid them happening to you. This book will stand as a reference manual on my desk, as I launch my own business in the coming months.

A wise man once said that it is “Better to be slapped with the truth than kissed with a lie.” The insights, encouragements and action steps set forth in these pages offer the reader a gentle slap meant to wake up a friend who finds themselves running late to business engagement. I am now awake. 

Clay Nettles — Owner, Nettles Fine Jewelry

Today’s business climate is fast paced and demanding causing many to sacrifice family for success. Building a Business That Lasts truly is a guide on how to blend business and life so your family reaps the rewards of your time and success instead of missing out. Read and apply Jay’s principles.

You CAN have Success in Business AND Family
One of my favorite chapters in this book is Chapter 6, "The Work / Life Blender." In this chapter, I dispute the idea that work and life need to be 50/50, or that you need to find a way to balance things at all.

I'm not talking about ignoring your family completely or ignoring your business. Instead, I share an alternative idea that life is like a blender. You toss in all of the ingredients (work, play, family, etc.) and it all gets mixed up. Sometimes you need more spinach in your life (work) and sometimes you need more fruit (family).

Chapter 6 shares key ideas as to how I've not only grown a business for 20 years, but also improved my 15+ year marriage to my wife while raising our 5 kids (who are homeschooled).

If you struggle with "balancing it all" — this chapter is for you!
