Eighty percent of all businesses fail in their first five years!When you are facing down those kind of odds, you'd better know exactly what you are doing before you take the plunge. Success lies in the system! Gerber knows that for a business to be prosperous it must function like a powerful machine. The type of business is irrelevant - a precise system of dynamic interplay between the connected parts should be in place. The well-planned system will, once started, chug along continually and predictably, transporting you to the better life of which you've only dreamed. After all, your business should make it possible for you to do whatever you wish, whenever you wish, while continuing to produce exceptional results... without you! That is your fundamental goal - dispensability! Gerber will:
Gerber's refined techniques for entrepreneurs enumerate how to successfully build a business that will soar in both booming and sagging economic markets, learn to focus on the results, not the work, and to see your business as your product. You'll also hear Gerber's 7 Steps of Business Development:

I've been in a service business for 22 years. I wish I had this information 22 years ago!!! Michael Gerber provides the business owner with a method to turn a small business into an empire. Thank you so much!!!
I had read The E Myth and was excited to find this abridged excerpt from a full Michael Gerber seminar. Great content. Excellent delivery before a live audience.
This seminar may be a little dated but there are many great truths that are fundamental and dangerous to deny. I studied Japanese business (lean) and I stick by the real fundamentals of Toyota in my service business. It was very interesting to hear the same ideas, packaged in a way that non-lean people would buy.
This is not straight lean of course but stresses how important systems are in every business. And much more is covered.
This is a great listen that Americanized my thinking about business. I have already implemented much of the thinking in my business and have seen great results.
This is an essential listen.
I love the energy! I took a trip with my daughter, driving from New Jersey to Florida. I thought it was a good idea to listen to e-myth while she slept based on my accountant's recommendation.
I literally could not stop listening. it was beyond a good or great idea. it inspired me to write down my mission, begin working on my prototype and plan an execution strategy.
I'm now ready to do make life changes!
The take away is don't get caught up in everyday operations to the point your just any other employee/technician.
Rather be a visionary with a mission to grow and create a business sellers will fight to buy. I found the organizational chart exercise especially enlightening.
About to listen for a second time! Clear and detailed guidance and just what I needed to recalibrate my stagnant business. I took copius notes and will be referencing this audiobook often. Priceless!!!
A slow start and was very preachy and shouty at times, especially on, but once it gets going there is some superb content
This is an excellent and very practical and useful material provided through this seminar. Would definitely recommend and review regularly.
