The E-Myth, Michael Gerber dispels the myths surrounding starting your own business and shows how commonplace assumptions can get in the way of running a business. He 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. He then shows how to apply the lessons of franchising to any business whether or not it is a franchise. 



I'll be honest with you the thought of going into Word Press used to frighten me.

Not only did I find it confusing and difficult to understand, but the time it would take to get things how I wanted,  coupled with the thought of breaking something was all too much.

I discovered Elementor, which is essentially a drag and drop page builder for Word Press and it's been a game changer for me.

It's how I have built this site and in fact this very post you are reading now.

Elementor is simple to install and operate. It's a simple Word Press plug-in that you can have up and running and start creating and building your site in no time.

I have found the Elementor Support Community to be the best value because you get access to all their professionally designed themes as well so you can really hit the ground running.
