    E-Myth \ 'e-,'mith\ n 1: the entrepreneurial myth: the myth that most people who start small businesses are entrepreneurs 2: the fatal assumption that an individual who understands the technical work of a business can successfully run a business that does that technical work

    Voted #1 business book by Inc. 500 CEOs.

    An instant classic, this revised and updated edition of the phenomenal bestseller dispels the myths about starting your own business. Small business consultant and author Michael E. Gerber, with sharp insight gained from years of experience, points out how common assumptions, expectations, and even technical expertise can get in the way of running a successful business.

    Gerber walks you through the steps in the life of a business—from entrepreneurial infancy through adolescent growing pains to the mature entrepreneurial perspective: the guiding light of all businesses that succeed—and shows how to apply the lessons of franchising to any business, whether or not it is a franchise. Most importantly, Gerber draws the vital, often overlooked distinction between workingon your business and working in your business.

    The E-Myth Revisited will help you grow your business in a productive, assured way.

    • A must read for any small business owner

      I bought this book as a gift to a friend branching out on his own. I know first hand how many headaches and frustration I would have avoided had someone done the same for me when I branched out. The key to true business success and freedom is to make your business "turn-key" to allow you to pull back away from the business when you need to and want to and, if you want to, duplicate yourself many times over. This book shows you how to do just that.
