Book Nook

As a part of our continuing education series this quarter, the Taylor Commercial team read “The E Myth Revisited,” a small business management guide by Michael E Gerber. From the author's website:

“The ‘E-Myth,’ or entrepreneurial myth, of the title refers to the common — and usually disastrous — assumption that a person who excels at the technical or operational work of a business will naturally succeed at running such a business. Gerber dispels the myth by showing that, in addition to being a technician, a successful business owner must be an effective manager (who excels at systematizing the company's profitable work) and entrepreneur (who has a vision for the company's future).”
