3 Key Points in this Episode:
- The E-Myth and the Fatal Assumption are more relevant today than in 1986 when Michael first penned those words.
- An entrepreneur is four personalities all in one, the dreamer, the thinker, the storyteller, and the leader.
- Entrepreneurs are made not born and Michael has developed the 8-fold path, a system that makes entrepreneurs.
Episode 120: Michael E. Gerber is a legend in the business world. I had the privilege of interviewing Michael back in September of 2018 and I wanted to replay his interview today for all the new listeners of the podcast.
For those that have heard the interview before I encourage you to listen to it again as you will undoubtedly get new insights from the man Inc. Magazine calls “the #1 Small Business Guru in the World!”
Bio of Today’s Guest
It’s not often that one gets to introduce a true legend, a world-renowned thought leader, entrepreneur, and author. But that’s my privilege right now. In fact, our guest is even more than that. He has touched the lives of more business owners, managers and entrepreneurs over the past forty years throughout the world than any other individual has.
His E-Myth books have been named by The Wall Street Journal as the single most influential business book of all time. His companies have coached, mentored, trained and facilitated more than 100,000 business clients in 145 countries. His books are among the top selling books of all time, on The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Inc. Magazine and so many more. It was Inc. Magazine that first called Michael E. Gerber, “The World’s #1 Small Business Guru!”
Today one of my dreams comes true, it is with great respect and excitement that I get to say, here is my interview with The Man, the true E-Myth Master himself, the inventor of the iconic phrase, go to work ON your business, not IN your business . . . MICHAEL E. GERBER!
