Small 2 Scaled Podcast


You’ve heard the proverb; “necessity is the mother of invention”. In this episode, we meet Julie Farrell, Founder of tech startup PlanHero.com. She took that well-known phrase and put it into action. With a degree in mechanical engineering, a work history that includes weighing jets for McDonnel-Douglas, building missile launchers, industrial lasers, and managing a team of 50 engineers, Julie Farrell’s mind is wired to solve for the equation.

She shares with us:

Why you need to gut check your purpose when you decide to embark on a business startup
Local Angel investors – and other tips on where to find funding
The importance of talking to your customers – they shape the course of your company
LLC vs. C-Corp
What a good advisor can do
And if you haven’t done so, check out https://planhero.com/ – “no cape required”!

“Every Life a Legacy! Every Small Business a School!” – Michael E. Gerber

After reading his New York Times bestseller “The E Myth Revisited: Why Most Businesses Don’t Work and What To Do About It”, I knew Michael E. Gerber had to be on my show! There’s a reason why his book has been read by millions worldwide, published in 30 languages and is required reading for over 100 universities and business schools. This episode is a MUST LISTEN for anyone who has either started their own business or intends to use their skillset to build a business down the road. I talk with Michael Gerber, a business legend, someone Inc. Magazine calls “The World’s Number One Small Business Guru”. He sums it all up for us here in 20 minutes; so listen in!

Key takeaways:

Don’t fall into the trap of making your own business a “job, job, job”. Design your company to grow based upon dream, vision, purpose, & mission. Why are we here? Develop a SYSTEM –to do the work, not you! Turn the most avid technicians into the greatest entrepreneurs step by step by step by step.

The 8-fold path to entrepreneurial development process

1) Dream

2) Vision

3) Purpose

4) Mission

5) Job

6) Practice – client acquisition system

7) Business

8) Enterprise

“What’s missing in this picture is the system, stupid!” Then you have a turn-key methodology to grow your business.

Where to start? Start anew.. a blank piece of paper and a beginner’s mind. Make what you’ve built so far sustainable, then go to work on everything new to enable your company to grow. Your future is your dream, your vision, your purpose, your mission. Every entrepreneur in the making must have one. Find yours!
