The Comfort Zone zMost businesses get outside their comfort zone zBusiness or Job?? zThe Business no longer shines zMost businesses focus on the product or Service not how the company does business Osborne – Computerland – Circuit City
Going for Broke-Turn over Management zDemand for Services is larger than can be handled zHiring someone to handle the business zHiring an Employee to run the business – be the owner so the owner can be a technician zWont work!!!
Company is growing or Shrinking zEither you do the job of the owner or??? zCannot abdicate your role in a true company zBusiness or Job???
Maturity Stage zCompanies who know how it got where it is and know where it is going.
E Myth Entrepreneurial Model zHow did we get Wayne to Maturity Stage??? yLook at the business itself as a product competing with other businesses. yNOT looking at whats done in the business but HOW it is done. We need to find a business model that satisfies all three of our personality needs.
Entrepreneurial Perspective zHow must the business work? zWhat work must be done? zSystem for producing results for customer and profit for owner zLooks at the future(Technician looks at the present)
Entrepreneur vs Technician vs Manager Point of Views zFuture vs Present zWhere we will be not where we are zEntrepreneur visions and the Technician only knows what he can touch and see

Business Format Franchise Proprietary Way of Doing Business that differentiates every Extra-ordinary business from one of its competitors. How do we build businesses to make that idea work for us? How do we make businesses that work predictably and profitably every day? How do we get business owners in control of their business rather than the businesses controlling the owner/manager??? MAJOR QUESTIONS ARE:

Your Business in Not Your Life!!! zA Business Owner must understand that the primary purpose of a business is that it serve him/her not that he/she serves the business. Work on the Business Not in the Business..
