We Small Business People are the economic backbone of this beloved USA: yet the prohibitive majority of small businesses fail. This says two things about us:
We are not afraid to jump.
We might want to plan our jump a little better.
If you are reading this, you have already jumped – you’re in midair. So, let’s do a little catching up on the planning. First – take some time and read Michael Gerber’s book, “The E Myth Revisited”. You are going to learn:
Certain tasks are absolutely vital to growing a dynamic business. You will also learn those tasks/obligations/positions of authority must be assigned to individuals in your company who will take responsibility to perform as required.
There is a general hierarchy of officer positions that must be acknowledged, assigned and duties performed, whether your company is just you, or 100.
How to develop a vison directing the growth of your company. The ultimate goal of Gerber’s mentoring is to create a stand-alone company that does not need to be attached to you, its Founder.
If however, you want an independent business that pays you for your expertise, you might want to read “Built to Last”, by Collins & Porras. They will give you a variety of mission statements and endeavors adopted by many of America’s most successful corporations. You might find inspiration in the book that helps you pursue a purpose bigger than yourself. Most independent operators who achieve a vanguard position among their peers do so without making monetary gain a priority.
