Working “On” Your Business with Jennifer Martin
Working ON your business (not just “in” your business) with Jennifer Martin, an entrepreneur, business coach, speaker and author. She shares her journey, including her time working for large corporations, and building a successful coaching business.
Jennifer is an entrepreneur, business coach, professional speaker, hypnotherapist, and author.
She is an E-Myth Certified Business Coach, and she draws on her 25+ years of business experience helping organizations large and small make millions of dollars. She’s had solid history of success working with large companies in many different industries (Clear Channel Communications, Union Pacific Railroad, 7-Eleven Stores, CompUSA, etc.) as well as solopreneurs and small to medium sized businesses.
She has owned and operated several businesses including a retail store, a restaurant and catering business, a publishing company, and a real estate investment and property management firm. So in addition to her big business experience, she knows first hand the joys, challenges, and stresses of operating a small business.
The phrase “Work On It, Not Just In It” has been part of business vernacular for more than 35 years, ever since Michael Gerber coined it in The E-Myth Revisited. Its message speaks to so many entrepreneurs who can’t see any other way to do business than to build a business around their own ability to get things done. This expression is the key to escaping this ultimately suffocating condition, to creating a business that doesn’t depend on you—one that consistently generates the results you want without you having to deliver them personally.
