I firmly believe that all nonprofits can benefit from the eMyth concepts that Michael Gerber advocates. Yet it was hard for me to find the right video for you, because I want you to get the right take-aways for nonprofits.
The eMyth is about business systems and marketing. Systems are the key. As he says, your job as a leader (or owner, as he says) is to work ON the business, not IN the business. This is a very difficult concept for any of us who have a specialty. We love what we do and want to do it – whether you’re a social worker, plumber, environmentalist, or baker or any other thing any of us do. Yet the key is to build processes that make that specialty work – so that almost anyone can make your mission happen.
By systematizing your nonprofit, you make it successful in the long term – to live beyond your leadership. So, watch the eMyth video. Read the eMyth book. Engage the eMyth process.
