I have often discussed the best books I read in this weekly email. Dozens of books in the past 20 years.
Michael Gerber saved my life when he suggested in his fine book The Entrepreneurial Myth Revisited that business closure was 90% more likely than business success. Suddenly, I saw an aspect which started my new career in teaching people how to survive business closure.
I was reminded of this on Tuesday when a friend told me to look at a free online business summit coming later this month. (September 24-26.) I registered fast! Hell, who wouldn't? This three-day online summit features speakers from books which changed my life during these past 25 years.
It's online, but it's mainly for owners of offline businesses.You'll learn all about the systems which should run our ventures. (And why we're working too damn hard.)
Michael Gerber was a speaker at last years summit. As I landed on the registration confirmation page, there was him speaking. It was a sign!
The people I most want to hear are the writers of the books I have shared with you in the past:
- Brian Moran, author of The 12 Week Year with an intense plan to compress a business year into 12 weeks.
- Mike Michalowicz, who wrote Profit First, a new way of looking at taking profits out of our business before we lose them. (This applies even when you have no earnings in your firm.)
- John Warrilow, Built to Sell about structuring your small business to sell it later.
More than 37 other famous business authors will share ideas. I am hooked.
These sessions will literally show you step-by-step how to solve some of the biggest problems within your business.
Sure, you could either try and figure this out yourself, wasting countless hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars or you could simply swipe and deploy these industry experts systems. You don't have to reinvent the wheel.
It's free. But. Allow me to introduce you to free in the online context. (I was stunned at how many people complained last time I suggested such an offer.)
It demands a shedload of time and effort to gather speakers of this calibre to speak to you. To get them to the right place at the right time. To persuade them it's a worthwhile undertaking.
You get it all free if you attend the live sessions, or if you view the videos within 48 hours. I think that's a fantastic offer.
But, you willl be offered lifetime access to those videos along with compelling extra material which would take you hundreds of hours to create. That's not free. You don't have to accept that offer. You can still attend for free.
I did take their upgrade offer. Included is a set of standard operating procedures, precise blueprints from each author to realise the results their books discuss. Those tools would take me more hours to create than I have time or energy for. I tried this after reading each book. Having those blueprints will me those hours and leave me time to implement. That's worth gold.
When I find training I want, especially if it has a free component, I want to share it.
In this case, If you invest in any of their extra, paid offers once you've registered for the free sessions, I will receive a commission. If you're upset with this, click here to go directly to their page.
Otherwise, register here.
I'll see you there. (In a manner of speaking.)
