Simple Logical Repeatable
You've read the E Myth, that told you to work on your business not in it. Simple, Logical, Repeatable is your blueprint for achieving the success, and freedom, you need to be able to do that.
Marianne has created a model that draws on the four foundation systems underpinning the enduring success of big businesses like McDonald's, and every small super-successful business around the globe – the key ingredients that make them consistent, reliable and trusted in their marketplace.
* Planning – clarity around your destination and your route map to get you there.
* Process – simplicity of your customer's journey through your business.
* People – effective hiring and training so people know 'how we do things round here' to deliver consistently high standards.
* Performance – ability to measure and manage performance to keep everyone on track.
The formula is simple – develop systems to run every aspect of your business, develop a high performing team to run your systems, and then get out of their way. Mastering the four foundations will give you the freedom to scale, grow, sell or franchise your business. . . or run it from a beach somewhere, if that's what you want to do.
As a small business owner operating in a franchised type legal business, I couldn’t initially see how Marianne’s famous ‘systems and processes’ would fit into my personal business. After reading Simple, Logical, Repeatable, I’m starting to look at everything I do differently. This book is not only about business but beautifully weaves in vital considerations around mindset and values – bringing business and life together, as they should be. My favourite quote, ‘if a system isn’t working in your business, it’s the wrong system’ could equally be applied to our lives. Marianne might just change the way (and the why) business is done, for the better.

Process to Profit
Business is all about relationships. Forget B2B and B2C, business is all about P2P. It is those strong, trusted relationships - with your customers, your people and your suppliers, that will deliver sustainable growth. That trust is built over time, and it all starts with you:
...with your ability to articulate your passion and inspire those around you to join your 'cause'
...with your insistence on hiring only those people who share your values and beliefs, and
...with the consistency and reliability you build into your business, through simple process and effective systems.
Passion + People + Process = A great customer experience. It also equals increased turnover, reduced costs, improved profit, and a business set for long-term growth.
This book will show you how process and systems can dramatically increase your revenue and reduce your costs, by supporting your people and making you both consistent, and easy to do business with. It will also show you how you can gain personally, by having: more control of every area of your operation, more time to work on your business not in it, and more profit to have the life you always dreamed of.

The McFreedom Report
What everyone forgets is that McDonald’s was once a little restaurant in the backwaters of Illinois, smaller than your business is today, maybe. What turned them into the business that so many people love to hate?
