Using the E-Myth principles to design a successful business, and helping managers to reclaim power and structure were part of the Quality Service Contractors Power Meeting XXXIV April 7-10 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tenn.
Ed Begley Jr. kicked off the education portion of the meeting by discussing his beginnings in the green movement during the 1970s and how he is spreading the message of increased energy efficiency - through his cable TV show on HGTV, “Living With Ed,” speaking engagements across the country and his relationship with A.O. Smith. Begley signed free copies of his book, “Ed Begley Jr.’s Guide to Sustainable Living,” provided by A.O. Smith, for attendees.
The E-Myth discussion began with Robert Clements of E-Myth Benchmark explaining the six key business strategies for success - leadership, marketing, finance, organization, systems and people - and how to design the right exit strategy for you and your business. Creating workable systems to run the business and getting your employees to follow the systems was presented by Susan Clements.
The last day of the meeting was spent learning how to “Manage in the Zone.” Cornerstones Management Institute’s John Condry uses behavior profiles to help people understand their natural management gifts. Attendees were encouraged to complete profiles and bring their results to the meeting. Copies of his book, “The INCH Principle,” were provided free to attendees.
The meeting ended with Chet McDoniel, a motivational speaker born with no arms and shortened legs, speaking about living life and overcoming challenges.
