Discussing E-Myth Principles: Alzay Calhoun & J.R. Atkins

Discussing E-Myth Principles

Alzay Calhoun interviews J.R. AtkinsIn the book, The E Myth, Michael Gerber dispels the myths surrounding starting your own business and shows how commonplace assumptions can interrupt a business. I found it to be a mind-altering book (in a good way) about how to grow your business in a predictable and productive way. I recommend this book as often as I can.

Listen below to an interview I did with J.R. Atkins who leads a LinkedIn group focused on E Myth principles. In the interview he shares with me his insights on E Myth strategy, what makes his group good to join, and how to get the most of out group membership. Enjoy!

Here is a quick snapshot of some of the questions covered:

– When did you start your forum/group, and why did you create it?

– What do you feel makes your community special?

– If you could magically give all of your community members one thing in this world, what would it be, and why?

– If you could ask your group members one thing and get an answer from all of them, what would that question be?

– What are some of the hot topics that seem to always be discussed within the group?

– For someone new to this community, how do they get the most out of it?

– Has anything surprised you about owning a forum about [niche]?

So What Do You Do?

“So what do you do? I see you everywhere but I’m not sure what you do.” I hear this on a regular basis, so I thought I’d share three projects from my current work to help explain what I do. On my website you will see that I am an Author, Speaker and Consultant. But what kind of consulting? Take a look and tell me what you think.
