If you left your small business for a month, would it make it?  What about if you left for a year?  Most small business owners couldn’t dream of doing this, yet this is what separates the big companies from the small.  Benjamin Franklin said, "Drive thy business, or it will drive thee".  This assumes your business will drive the wrong direction!  However, is there a way, where it could drive you in the right direction?  Can you create a business where you simply speak, and you will be taken you to your destination? 

In this book, you will learn three main components that must be present in your business, allowing your business to chauffeur you to your goals. 


The GPS System - The first necessary component for your business is a GPS, or navigational system. We will discuss a simple, effective way to build this, so it can guide or drive your business towards the goals you want to achieve. 


The 4 Vehicles – Within the Systems of your GPS, there are 4 Business Vehicles present in every business, including yours, that serve to drive the business and you to an intended destination. We will define these Vehicles and the functions of each. 


The Dashboard – Your car has a dashboard with specific gauges on it. These tell you if your Vehicle is overheating, running out of gas, or running out of battery power. We will discuss how to set up a dashboard for each of your Business Vehicles to perform a similar function and how to read the gauges.

After reading this book, you should be able to set up your new “driver” and take a month long vacation with your family.
