What is the Most Successful Small Business in the World? Carol Roth Interviews Michael E. Gerber

Written By: Carol Roth | Comments Off on What is the Most Successful Small Business in the World? Carol Roth Interviews Michael E. Gerber
First in the Entrepreneurship Interview Series

In the quest to provide you with relevant, insightful advice and information, I am kicking off my Entrepreneurship Interview Series with today’s best known and up-and-coming thought leaders on topics pertaining to business and entrepreneurship.  This first interview is with none other than Michael E. Gerber, America’s #1 Small Business Guru and author of over a dozen books including the E-Myth Revisited.  His work has transformed more than 65,000 businesses in over 145 countries worldwide, so he definitely has lots of experience to leverage.

Whether you are a small business owner, aspiring entrepreneur, advisor of small businesses or just generally curious about the topic of business, I know you will gain some valuable insights. 

In this interview, we talk about Michael’s brand new book, The Most Successful Small Business In the World: The Ten Principles and touch on a variety of topics including:

  -The single biggest mistake that entrepreneurs make that holds them back from being successful;

  -What the “Most Successful Small Business in the World” looks like;

  -What you should do if the business you are in is not truly scalable;

  -How the “10 Principles” apply to entrepreneurs that are motivated by something other than just purely profits;

  -How you can build a business that is sustainable through all economic conditions;

  -And more
