Summary

Eighty percent of all businesses fail in their first five years! 

When you are facing down those kind of odds, you'd better know exactly what you are doing before you take the plunge. Success lies in the system! Gerber knows that for a business to be prosperous it must function like a powerful machine. The type of business is irrelevant - a precise system of dynamic interplay between the connected parts should be in place. The well-planned system will, once started, chug along continually and predictably, transporting you to the better life of which you've only dreamed. After all, your business should make it possible for you to do whatever you wish, whenever you wish, while continuing to produce exceptional results... without you! That is your fundamental goal - dispensability! Gerber will:  

  • Show you the Three Essential Components of Business Development: Innovation, Quantification, and Orchestration. 
  • Teach you the important questions to ask in order to nurture an extraordinary business. 
  • Reveal the five skills vital to the entrepreneur - Discrimination, Concentration, Organization, Innovation, and Communication. 

Gerber's refined techniques for entrepreneurs enumerate how to successfully build a business that will soar in both booming and sagging economic markets, learn to focus on the results, not the work, and to see your business as your product. You'll also hear Gerber's 7 Steps of Business Development: 

  • Development of Your Primary Aim 
  • Development of Your Business Picture 
  • Organizational Development 
  • Management Development 
  • People Development 
  • Marketing Development 
  • Systems Development 

Accelerated Learning Techniques tells you how. 

Based on Nobel Prize-winning research, the cutting-edge methods revealed here can make a dramatic difference to you and your family, virtually guaranteeing success at work and school. For this is the ideal learning program, enabling you to identify and use your own unique way of learning, unleashing the power of your whole brain. And as a result, you'll gain skills that put you in the top 1% of people in our society. 

Listen as Accelerated Learning Techniques teaches you: 

  • Seventeen memory methods and principles. 
  • Seven different intelligences and how to discover which is your personal strength. 
  • Five keys to rapid adult learning. 
  • Six stages of effective learning.

Great content

A slow start and was very preachy and shouty at times, especially on, but once it gets going there is some superb content

Very profound, the most profound, essential

After spending years reading and researching the subject called Personal Development, entrepreneurship and success, I can gladly say that Michael Gerber is the best of them all. He is the most complete, the most refined. It's not motivation, his work is deeper than motivation. His work is the best education for anybody that's interesting in success and high-level achievement. The very best. The very best, the most refined, pure excellence. Wow.

Like E-myth but sick of Sarah and the pie shop?

I've listened to older E-myth Revisited book many times. The story of Sarah and her pie shop is great the first time to put things in context - even if in an irritating and sappy kind of way - but when you go back for repeat listens to pull the meat back out and take notes...ugh. Sarah just sounds dumber and dumber as you try to 2x through those parts.

This is a nice, fresh recap of the whole thing in a seminar format without the fluff. Mostly what you've heard before in the earlier work but much more concise and easier to revisit the concepts. No regrets. This will be my go-to in the future rather than the pie story.

the best seminar on how to systemize your business

this is the best seminar on how to systemize your business and set yourself free from inefficient business routine. the seminar is a blue print how to develop business processes in your business so you either franchise or sell you business if you wish, or just have an exponential growth and happy customers

Nothing New

The information in this seminar is good. However there is nothing new. Everything he talks about is just a regurgitation of what can be found in the book The E-myth.

Life changing!

This program was so impressive that I listened straight through. Finally something that defines the "how" rather than just the what. I have a clear plan and structure to work with. If you are in business for yourself, you need to read or listen to this book.

Fantastic Seminar

This seminar may be a little dated but there are many great truths that are fundamental and dangerous to deny. I studied Japanese business (lean) and I stick by the real fundamentals of Toyota in my service business. It was very interesting to hear the same ideas, packaged in a way that non-lean people would buy.

This is not straight lean of course but stresses how important systems are in every business. And much more is covered.

This is a great listen that Americanized my thinking about business. I have already implemented much of the thinking in my business and have seen great results.

This is an essential listen.

eye opener!

I love the energy! I took a trip with my daughter, driving from New Jersey to Florida. I thought it was a good idea to listen to e-myth while she slept based on my accountant's recommendation.

I literally could not stop listening. it was beyond a good or great idea. it inspired me to write down my mission, begin working on my prototype and plan an execution strategy.

I'm now ready to do make life changes!

Work ON not IN your business

The take away is don't get caught up in everyday operations to the point your just any other employee/technician.
Rather be a visionary with a mission to grow and create a business sellers will fight to buy. I found the organizational chart exercise especially enlightening.

Great listen!

I had read The E Myth and was excited to find this abridged excerpt from a full Michael Gerber seminar. Great content. Excellent delivery before a live audience.
