Brian has been working with different types of efficiency customization a long time. He started this site back in 2011 when he first wrote the manifesto (which quickly became a well known and much used book in the industry). He ran the site for almost two years between 2011 and 2013. Nowadays, he is working with video production. Up-to-date he has done over 23.000 hours of vidematerial for more than 230 happy customers!

Fast forward to September 2017: Fredrik found the site during a search for “Small Business” & “kaizen”. He found the site and the content very appealing and wanted it back to life – and so SmallBizKaizen changed ownership 🙂
To give you a hint of this sites history, here are the original “About”-page written by Brian in 2011:
