The E-Myth: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It
The E-Myth offers a fresh, provocative alternative to management, as we know it. It explores why every manager must take charge of his own life, reconcile his own personal vision with that of the organization, and develop an entrepreneurial mind-set to achieve true success.
Every revolution has a leader...to awaken the spirit, to champion the cause, to lead the charge! Business visionary, entrepreneur, best-selling author and Chairman of E-Myth Worldwide, Michael Gerber has been leading a Small Business Revolution before anyone knew there was one! He called it The E-Myth Revolution, and over the past two decades, he has indelibly touched hundreds of thousands of small business owners throughout the world with his brilliantly insightful, original E-Myth message.
Undoubtedly, Michael Gerber's eclectic background and interests have played an integral part in formulating the innovative consulting services E-Myth Worldwide provides. His artistic ability as a musician and poet, together with a keen interest in philosophy, spirituality and personal growth have been underlying forces throughout his life and teachings.
Michael Gerber's E-Myth Point of View embodies his commitment to personal growth and the realization that a business owner's purpose in life can be actualized through his or her business. Michael Gerber's efforts, his message--his very life's work has been to empower business owners to gain more freedom, more money, more time, and more life.
Rise Above the Tyranny of Work to Find Freedom & Joy
Documented in his mega-best seller The E-Myth: Why Most Small Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About It, Michael Gerber's E-Myth Point of View provides those typically enslaved by a business with a way out of what he calls "the tyranny of routine." Dragging down the owner's entrepreneurial spirit, this tyranny is the dull, repetitive work Michael Gerber refers to as doing-it, doing-it, doing-it. The E-Myth powerfully describes how to rise above that tyranny of routine to build a flourishing, exciting, innovative business.
But The E-Myth is much more than just a book! After intensive research and hundreds of thousands of hours testing essential business development principles, practices and systems, Michael Gerber successfully created a programmatic method that works for anyone determined to improve the condition of his or her business. As a result, The E-Myth is now a process, a system, a model which can be implemented in any small business--and when implemented--will provide freedom and joy for the owners, employees and staff.
