|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

A mentor told me to read this book. The E-Myth was the driving factor that took my small business which had been controlling my life and transformed it into a business I could run remotely. Before I read this book I was working on site 9 hours a day 6 days a week. Less than a year after reading this I was able to take a six-month vacation around the world while my business ran itself. If you own a small business you need to read this book as soon as possible.
Is it perfect? No - it's seriously cringy when the author talks about how beautiful and youthful his protege is. Ugh. But other than that, I love it and recommended it to all small business owners. Read it.
If you're a business owner, or wanna be, I would suggest reading this book. If you've been in business for many years, I'd suggest reading this book twice. It will make you see things, like possibilities, not just error correction, that you might have wondered about but weren't sure how to go.
I highly recommend this book.
The framework outlined provides a framework for creating balance in a business. I am excited to try to put this into place, and to tell my clients about it, too.
I felt like towards the end, some detail about the conversation with Sarah could have been dwindled down but otherwise great book!
Critical to Gerber's thinking is that each business can be run similar to a franchise model - where the customer experience is consistent, the talent and skill required to run the business is minimized, and the approach is well documented and easily learned. The role of the owner is to view their business as a potential franchise, begin with the end in mind, and start building a business system that will deliver consistently for all stakeholders.
There is a reason this book has been on the must read list for 30 years - and it is still fresh and relevant today.
