Most importantly, Gerber draws the vital, often overlooked distinction between working on your business and working in your business.

In this practical, real-world program that can be implemented real-time into any business, Michael E. Gerber begins by explaining why the entrepreneur is so critical to the success of any enterprise, no matter how small or large it may be, and why the mindset of an entrepreneur is so integral to the operating reality of the organization. He then covers seven essential skills: leadership, marketing, money, management, lead conversion, lead generation, and client fulfillment.
E-Myth Mastery shows readers the difference between being an entrepreneur and doing a job, and teaches them how to get money when banks won’t help, how to expand their customer bases when big business moves in down the street, and how to make sure their businesses keep their promises every single time.
This book reveals a radical new mind-set that will free contractors from the tyranny of an unprofitable, unproductive routine. With specific tips on topics as crucial as planning, money and personnel management, The E-Myth Contractor teaches readers how to:
- Implement the ingenious turnkey system of management—a means of creating a business prototype that reflects the business owner's unique set of talents and replicating and distributing them among employees and customers.
- Recognise and manage the four forms of money—income, profit, flow and equity.
- Harness the power of change to expand the company.
The book also provides help on a larger level, leading readers towards becoming business visionaries by relinquishing tactical work and embracing strategic work, by letting go to gain control. Once put into action, Gerber's revolutionary ideas promise not only to help contractors build successful businesses, but successful lives as well.
