Running the machine. Automating greatness.

Learning from mistakes. Leaving a legacy.

We will interview owners in Small Business, Entrepreneurship, and Startups. The goal of Business Machine is to tell stories about some of the mistakes owners made, how they recovered, and how those mistakes ultimately helped them get where they are today.

We also believe that you are the machine. You are the one that makes everything happen from day to day. You are working on building the machine, getting it to run on it’s own, part by part so that one day it is running by itself. Like a fine tuned machine. Because isn’t that what we are all working towards? Leaving a legacy?  Retiring? Letting someone else take the business to the next level?
