The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About It
Michael E. Gerber
1: the entrepreneurial myth: the myth that most people who start small businesses are entrepreneurs
2: the fatal assumption that an individual who understands the technical work of a business can successfully run a business that does that technical work
Voted #1 business book by Inc. 500 CEOs.
An instant classic, this revised and updated edition of the phenomenal bestseller dispels the myths about starting your own business. Small business consultant and author Michael E. Gerber, with sharp insight gained from years of experience, points out how common assumptions, expectations, and even technical expertise can get in the way of running a successful business.
Gerber walks you through the steps in the life of a business—from entrepreneurial infancy through adolescent growing pains to the mature entrepreneurial perspective: the guiding light of all businesses that succeed—and shows how to apply the lessons of franchising to any business, whether or not it is a franchise. Most importantly, Gerber draws the vital, often overlooked distinction between working on your business and working in your business.
The E-Myth Revisited will help you grow your business in a productive, assured way.

Unfortunatley Owen is moving on and is no longer able to run the group. If you feel you could run and grow the group please do get in touch and we will help you get things rolling.
Being a First Friday organiser is great for your business, don't just take my word for it, this is what one of the other organisers said...
We have just taken on our second First Friday meeting having grown as a company and wanted our new team member to start to build a company presence in the area. Having run a First Friday event for over 5 years and seen the benefits that it has created in brand awareness and reputation for our company in the local area, we felt it was the only way to quickly build up our company name as someone in a new area that was well connected and a true networker. I would recommend taking on a First Friday meeting if you are keen to grow and develop your business in that location, as networking is the best way to grow your business, and what better way than to be known as the best local networker!
