Michael Gerber, World Renowned Author Of The E-Myth Revisited, To Be Honored With A Lifestime Achievement Award By The National Academy Of Bestselling Authors December 3 In NYC
In conjunction with the 25th anniversary of Michael Gerber’s global bestseller The E-Myth Revisited, the National Academy of Bestselling Authors has selected him as the first Lifetime Achievement Award winner at an awards ceremony that will also honor some of 2010’s bestselling authors.
The event takes place December 3 at the Hard Rock Café in Times Square, New York City.
The National Academy of Best Selling Authors® was founded by two attorneys, JW Dicks, Esq. and Nick Nanton, Esq. who are also bestselling authors and represent authors and experts nationwide. Both attorneys are members of multiple organizations, associations and academies that recognize and honor the best in the business, and they thought a similar organization should be created for bestselling authors who don’t always get recognition for their accomplishment.
Like the award shows put on by entertainment based organizations, their goal was to create more categories—besides the familiar “New York Times Bestseller”—for authors to be accepted and recognized for their accomplishments. The National Academy of Best Selling Authors® now honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.
Dubbed the world’s “#1 small business guru” by Inc. Magazine, Michael Gerber is the founder of E-Myth Worldwide, the coaching, training and education firm he founded in 1977 to transform the development of small businesses. Today, Michael Gerber’s companies have become leading small business development firms in the world, having achieved stunning results by helping to grow more than 70,000 businesses in over 145 countries.
The E-Myth Revisited (whose full title is The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It) along with Mr. Gerber’s other E-Myth books, have sold millions of copies and have been on the Small Business Bestseller list for more than ten consecutive years. His books have been translated into 29 languages and used in 118 universities throughout the world.
In addition to The E-Myth Revisited, Mr. Gerber has penned 12 other books that have established his revolutionary perspective as the standard for small business and entrepreneurial development. He has spoken to enthralled audiences throughout the world including London, Leeds, Vancouver, Toronto, Sydney, Melbourne, The Gold Coast, and in every state in the U.S. — in excess of 500 events overall.
Gerber’s passion for and insight into understanding the plight of the individual entrepreneur is the crux of his tremendous appeal and success, and his dedication to this cause has helped to form the core values of Mr. Gerber’s brand as it has evolved over three decades. Indeed, the unique ability of Gerber’s E-Myth Perspective—to help small business operators overcome their “entrepreneurial seizure” and begin to work ON their business and not merely IN it—is the very heart of Mr. Gerber’s E-Myth revolution.
Gerber is currently transforming entrepreneurship worldwide by turning his attention from the re-management of existing businesses to the essential awakening of entrepreneurs in the startup phase. In December of 2005, he launched an exciting new venture for entrepreneurs seeking to create world class startups, Chief Dreamer Enterprises—a treasure-trove of rich, original entrepreneurial services, including: The Dreaming Room®, an entrepreneurial incubator; Certified Capital Advisors®, a system for generating new capital out of the operating system of a small business; My Growth Resources®, turnkey growth services for marketing, managing, funding, and improving emerging entrepreneurial ventures; and Origination®, Mr. Gerber’s one of a kind entrepreneurial development enterprise.
Over the past four years, Mr. Gerber has led his Dreaming Room two and a half day intensives throughout the U.S., Canada and the UK.
Based on his experiences with entrepreneurs in these “Dreaming Room” events, Michael authored Awakening The Entrepreneur Within – How Ordinary People Can Create Extraordinary Companies in 2008. Of this new period in his life and career, Gerber says: “There is an entirely new kind of entrepreneur awakening and coming alive in America today, and thousands are joining their ranks each week. I call the men and women joining this revolution, quite simply, ‘the awakened entrepreneur.'”
The Awakening Entrepreneur™ is inspired by the belief that to truly flourish, a business must touch the lives of each of its four primary influencers – its customers, employees, suppliers and lenders —in a deep and meaningful way. Awakened Entrepreneurs seek a path that has, at its core, a higher, more inspiring meaning than just making money, selling a product or seizing market share. Above all, they are trailblazers seeking to transform lives in all that they do. Their companies are, unfailingly, a stunning reflection of this transformational resolve.
“I believe in that vision,” Mr. Gerber says. “I believe in that possibility for all who would pursue the entrepreneurial call. For this reason, everything that I do in business and every book I write from this time on will be aimed to further this cause by awakening the entrepreneur within the countless millions of people worldwide who are inspired by the possibility of creating world class companies – companies that fulfill that deep abiding vision in each of us to transform our world.”
His 2009 book, The E-Myth Enterprise – How to Turn a Great Idea into a Thriving Business is written in conjunction with that vision. In his most recent work, The Most Successful Small Business in the World – The Ten Principles (2010), Gerber takes even bolder steps, setting conventional wisdom on its ear to create entrepreneurial independence and financial security in a world that is most often unpredictable and unreliable. He has founded several ventures in the last four years which provide tools and support to The Awakened Entrepreneur™.
Gerber has done speaking engagements for international sponsors in Australia, Canada, the UK, Portugal, New Zealand and Turkey, in addition to the hundreds of sponsor companies he has engaged in the U.S. He lives with his wife, Luz Delia, in Carlsbad, California, where they are intentionally and joyously pursuing their shared vision for transforming the world, one small business at a time.
