It takes a team to build a quality business. Partly because no single person has all the expertise that’s required. And partly because no one has the time to do everything that needs to be done.
According to Michael Gerber in The E-Myth Revisited, most businesses are started by technicians, not business people. Technicians are people who make stuff or provide services. For example, someone works at a company baking pies and decides to open a bakery. That person might be a great baker, but he or she might not have what it takes to build a good business.
In my case, I’ve spent a career helping people with their business deals — buying or selling businesses, negotiating contracts with key suppliers, setting up new businesses. All these are the work of technicians. For over a decade, I’ve spent my days involved in business as a trusted advisor helping my clients make informed business decisions, but I haven’t been responsible for developing and executing a business strategy.
When I decided to pursue the business idea that has become Blue Maven Law, I knew I needed help. The first person I called was Bill Ellis. It was a great move.
