When asked, Gerber emphatically explains: “I wrote this to make the job of building a small business easy–for every man or woman struggling to get it right. This book cuts to the chase: A company is a product to be sold. Build it right, and you will sell it. Build it wrong, and you won’t. Most small business owners won’t. This book was written to fix that.”
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. Finally, Gerber draws the vital, often overlooked distinction between working on your business and working in your business.

Clear uses 4 principles to help you form a good habit or break a bad habit: (1) make it obvious or invisible; (2) make it attractive or unattractive; (3) make it easy or hard, and (4) make it satisfying or unsatisfying.
