Do you worry that your business will collapse without your constant presence? Are you sacrificing your family, friendships, and freedom to keep your business alive? What if instead your business could run itself, freeing you to do what you love when you want, while it continues to grow and turn a profit? It’s possible. And

Do you worry that your business will collapse without your constant presence? Are you sacrificing your family, friendships, and freedom to keep your business alive? What if instead your business could run itself, freeing you to do what you love when you want, while it continues to grow and turn a profit?

It’s possible. And it’s easier than you think.

If you’re like most entrepreneurs, you started your business so you could be your own boss, make the money you deserve, and live life on your own terms. In reality, you’re bogged down in the daily grind, constantly putting out fires, answering an endless stream of questions, and continually hunting for cash.

Now, Mike Michalowicz, the author of Profit First and other small-business bestsellers, offers a straightforward step-by-step path out of this dilemma. In Clockwork, he draws on more than six years of research and real life examples to explain his simple approach to making your business ultra-efficient.
Among other powerful strategies, you will discover how to:

  •  Make your employees act like owners: Free yourself from micromanaging by using a simple technique to empower your people to make smart decisions without you.

  •  Pinpoint your business’s most important function: Unleash incredible efficiency by identifying and focusing everyone on the one function that is most crucial to your business.

  •  Know what to fix next: Most entrepreneurs try to fix every inefficiency at once and end up fixing nothing. Use the “weakest link in the chain” method to find the one fix that will add the most value now.

Whether you have a staff of one, one hundred, or somewhere in between, whether you’re a new entrepreneur or have been overworked and overstressed for years, Clockwork is your path to finally making your business work for you.

Absolutely not worth it Here is the entire book in one sentence: decide what the most important thing your business does/should be doing is and then find really good people to do it for you.In spite of flippant comments throughout that say, “Oh, if you’re a solopreneur, this works for you, too,” it’s not true. It all boils down to hiring other people and then delegating to them.I can’t help but wonder about all of the high reviews because not only are the ideas not new (some even directly…

Get started and schedule your 4 week vacation Clockwork gives you all the tools to set up your business to run itself. I have worked with the author since 2016 as we put these processes to work in my business. Mike is my business coach and I received an advance copy of the book. It is spot on. It is actionable and fun in Mike’s typical style. By following his advice and determining my queen bee role, I was able to focus on what only I could do and maiximize my impact. The team developed to fill the other roles and it set us up to grow…

It’s the missing manual to entrepreneurial sanity. Using the principles in Clockwork allowed me to step away from the business and not worry. You’ve heard of The 4-hour Workweek? Well, this is a manual for the entrepreneur’s 4-Week Vacation.For nearly 10 years, I ran a business as a solopreneur. Partly, I never wanted employees. Partly, I thought that I was hot stuff and never wanted to turn over that “talent” to others. Then last year, I saw the author Mike Michalowicz deliver a presentation at the QuickBooks Connect conference…
