The E Myth Revisited



I’ve been listening to the audiobook version of Michael E. Gerber’s “The E Myth Revisited” for the past 5 days that I was approved to borrow the book on the Libby app. 


The key takeaway that I have from the book is that in order to have a successful small business, I need to gradually develop it so that I can work ON the business instead of working IN it. In many businesses that fail one can find an entrepreneur that is doing everything to keep the business afloat.


If you’re like me and would like to create something of your own one day, “The E Myth Revisited” is a good listen. Even if you come away disagreeing with its points, it would serve you to listen to Gerber’s views. 


At night when I’m on standby to feed my daughter and change her diaper, I’ve been following Gerber's advice and creating a business development plan for a mutual aid business that I’m working on. I hope to share the first stages of that business with you soon.
