When speaking at a conference an attendee came up to Kirsty and said:

“Your lessons are too valuable to keep to yourself. Please write a book.”

This comment helped Kirsty move forward with her plans for the launch of her first book:

Sample Cover of the Uncorporate Marketing Manual


















The Uncorporate Marketing Manual teaches a straightforward step-by-step marketing system for uncorporates – solopreneurs, mom-and-pop shops, mini-business owners and smaller not-for-profits.

The Manual is only for uncorporates only – businesses with over 50 employees need not buy.

This practical instruction manual presents a simple 3 part system:

Part 1:             Build a 6 step marketing plan

Part 2:             Choose from over 60 traditional and digital strategies and tactics

Part 3:             Put the plan in action, measure success and adjust


The Manual is written like old-fashioned instruction manual, with easy-to-follow instructions written in plain language with real-life examples, with diagrams and templates throughout, and coil-bound to lie flat for ease of use.


Kirsty and her Guides are uncorporate in approach, tactics and attitude!



Offers a new systematic approach to marketing with her Uncorporate Marketing Manual available Fall 2016.

Adds value to Business Centres’ services with her practical seminars and workshops.

Shows solopreneurs, mini- and small business how to earn more customers.
