Description

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 best sellers, 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, 100, 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.

Ce que les critiques disent

“If there will ever be a patron saint for entrepreneurs, Mike Michalowicz is surely a top contender for the position. He has personally been through every point of the entrepreneurial roller coaster, which gives him the credibility to speak to entrepreneurs in the kind of honest language they want to hear. Avoiding the airy, high-altitude maxims so common in other books, Clockwork is chock full of practical and relatable advice. It reminds entrepreneurs why they set out on the adventure and offers them a toolbox to take with them.” (Simon Sinek, optimist and author of Start with Why and Leaders Eat Last)

Clockwork is a how-to-manual for helping a small business owner achieve the purpose of owning a business - time and financial freedom. Masterful job Mike!” (Gino Wickman, author of Traction and creator of EOS)    

"When your business runs like clockwork, you can finally go off the clock! In this fun book, Mike shows how you, too, can achieve the dream of an enterprise that thrives while you enjoy all life has to offer." (Laura Vanderkam, author of Off the Clock and What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast

A must for every entrepreneur

If you want to sell your business one day, you need to automate it ! A business that run without it's owner has more value for the buyer, because it's built on a efficient system. Clockwork shows you the work, but it is easy to say, not so easy to implement. But the rewards of your efforts mean you could go on 4 weeks vacation and still have a (growing!) business : the dream of many business owners.

Clock Work

My biggest takeaway from this book was I was creating more work for me by having my team come back and ask questions. I am making the transition to letting them know the outcome and then decide how to get their themselves. It has been a game changer for me. Hard but so worth it.

Another great book by Mike's Team...but

Mike has a great way of systemizing financial concepts for the modern entrepreneur, or anyone looking for more control of their financial future! I enjoyed his divergences from script on other books to help create a connection to the books teachings, but this after listening to this book several times, I still have a hard time focusing on his direction with the overload of examples.

That said, I still have and will continue to recommend this book as a great way to build on each of the previous books with a systemized 80/20 approach to creating focus in your business...and if wanted, a exit plan to retire from the day to day grind.

Another fabulous book by Mike Michalowicz

I always enjoy Mike's books. Not only is his narrating engaging and entertaining, the book is packed with business advice you can begin to employ immediately. This is my fourth MM book. Profit First remains my favorite, but this one is a close second.
