Today’s show will make you think in new ways about the systems in your business. We know that systems are important and relevant to all of us in achieving the freedom we want as business owners. Join us to take a fresh look at the vision, organization, and processes that will make your business work!

Michael Mills is one of the founders and managing directors of Business Design Corporation. Michael was a Master Certified E-Myth Consultant for many years, delivering Michael Gerber’s E-Myth Mastery Program to hundreds of entrepreneurs. He decided to focus on creating a tool and process to make it easy to systemize businesses. Michael’s career spans 35 years from where he started out as a sales manager in his father’s company. He went on to own his own company, which he later sold, and then he focused his attention to helping entrepreneurs build their businesses. He’s written a book on how to systemize businesses, and he’s a frequent speaker at conferences in the US and Canada. In 2004, Michael’s business was so systemized that he and his family took 14 months to travel the world in a once-in-a-lifetime experience; his business ran smoothly and profitably during his absence, all because of the systems he had put in place. Get ready to view your business systems with a brand-new perspective!
