How To Create A Business That Runs Like Clockwork

Author and serial entrepreneur Mike Michalowicz joins us today to talk about the basis behind his newest book, Clockwork.

You might have heard us mention Mike’s previous book, Profit First, once… or two hundred times before on the podcast. He created that formula as a way for businesses to ensure profitability from their very next deposit forward.

Along with the two above mentioned books, Mike also wrote Surge, The Pumpkin Plan and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur, which Business Week deemed “the entrepreneur’s cult classic.”

Mike has also launched three multi-million dollar companies, he’s a former small business columnist for The Wall Street Journal, and a popular keynote speaker on innovative entrepreneurial topics.

What is the basis behind Clockwork?

The simple answer—It’s a simple process of making the business run on automatic.

Listen in as Mike delves a little deeper into creating a business and not a job.

We also discuss:

  • Serve the QBR—The Queen Bee’s Role. How to determine what it is and and why you should never compromise your core competency
  • Avoiding Superhero Syndrome and why you need to trade your superhero cape for a super-visionary one

Plus, so much more!

Delegation is NOT the assignment of tasks, it’s the assignment of outcomes. -Mike Michalowicz
