It is with great pleasure that I bring you this interview with Michael Gerber. The focus of this podcast is on his soon to be released book entitled, “Awakening the Entrepreneur Within: How Ordinary People Can Create Extraordinary Companies.” For years, Michael Gerber has been known for his work around the E-Myth. He has transformed over 50,000 entrepreneurs lives through helping them develop systems to duplicate themselves and grow their businesses. He invented, as he puts it, “the Mc Donald’s of small business consulting.”
Michael emphasizes the main reason that small businesses fail is not because their dream is too big, but rather too small and too realistic—it isn’t big enough to sustain more life. In my interview with him we explore what happens when a entrepreneur is impassioned with an idea and a dream. We discussed what happens when he or she wakes up inside and is on fire about their new dream and defines their vision, mission and purpose around the dream to manifest it bring it into reality.
Michael has created this new place that entrepreneurs can practice a new kind of dreaming something he refers to as “Intentional Dreaming.” It has nothing to do with problem solving and everything to do with transforming your whole life and business in a radically creative and strategic way.
I was thoroughly mesmerized by Michael’s energy and passion for the new venture he has embarked upon. In our interview together, you can sense his passion for helping people. I know you will enjoy his ideas, wisdom and advice throughout this podcast. I encourage you to visit his web site by clicking here to learn more about his books, workshops, CD’s.
