Publisher's Summary

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:  

  • Show you the Three Essential Components of Business Development: Innovation, Quantification, and Orchestration. 
  • Teach you the important questions to ask in order to nurture an extraordinary business. 
  • Reveal the five skills vital to the entrepreneur - Discrimination, Concentration, Organization, Innovation, and Communication. 

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: 

  • Development of Your Primary Aim 
  • Development of Your Business Picture 
  • Organizational Development 
  • Management Development 
  • People Development 
  • Marketing Development 
  • Systems Development

A brilliant fresher for Gerber's business ethos

What made the experience of listening to The E-Myth Seminar the most enjoyable?

I read 'E-myth revisited' (EMR) almost 10 years ago now. This seminar was seasoned with examples from the book, as well as new examples.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The final chapter. Introduced the concept of approaching the organisation as if it were a school (which I couldn't remember being part of EMR)

What about Michael E. Gerber’s performance did you like?

Very fresh and down to earth. Made some jokes (and laughed at a few of his own) which, to me, made the monologue more genuine.

Any additional comments?

Still deciding if the premise of the book is true in every case (in other words, can any organisation adopt the 'create a turnkey and sell it as a franchise' model).

Like E-myth but sick of Sarah and the pie shop?

I've listened to older E-myth Revisited book many times. The story of Sarah and her pie shop is great the first time to put things in context - even if in an irritating and sappy kind of way - but when you go back for repeat listens to pull the meat back out and take notes...ugh. Sarah just sounds dumber and dumber as you try to 2x through those parts. This is a nice, fresh recap of the whole thing in a seminar format without the fluff. Mostly what you've heard before in the earlier work but much more concise and easier to revisit the concepts. No regrets. This will be my go-to in the future rather than the pie story.

Nothing New

The information in this seminar is good. However there is nothing new. Everything he talks about is just a regurgitation of what can be found in the book The E-myth.

the best seminar on how to systemize your business

this is the best seminar on how to systemize your business and set yourself free from inefficient business routine. the seminar is a blue print how to develop business processes in your business so you either franchise or sell you business if you wish, or just have an exponential growth and happy customers

Life changing!

This program was so impressive that I listened straight through. Finally something that defines the "how" rather than just the what. I have a clear plan and structure to work with. If you are in business for yourself, you need to read or listen to this book.

Fantastic Seminar

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.

eye opener!

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!

Work ON not IN your business

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.

Not as good a E-Myth Revisited

I was hoping for a lot more from Gerber as I am a huge fan of The e-Myth Revisted. I found the content very dated, the examples pre-historic and some of Gerber's humour a tad dirty old man-ish. Badly needs an update. Get the E-Myth Revisited for the best of Gerber.

Very profound, the most profound, essential

After spending years reading and researching the subject called Personal Development, entrepreneurship and success, I can gladly say that Michael Gerber is the best of them all. He is the most complete, the most refined. It's not motivation, his work is deeper than motivation. His work is the best education for anybody that's interesting in success and high-level achievement. The very best. The very best, the most refined, pure excellence. Wow.
