Patrick: I want to get into, really, what you’re doing to create the success you’re having. I know that it probably starts with setting this up and then the companies that you’ve built beyond your book, “More Power.” I encourage you guys to get a copy. They can get it at your website www.BobBare.com?
Bob: You can get it there or Amazon.
Patrick: Amazon is a good place. Roughly a billion people use it — big shop. Tell me more. I want to know your story.
Bob: Funny thing, I get a lot of my ideas in the shower. I don’t know why. I guess maybe I turn off my mind for a few minutes. But one day I was thinking about all the things I’ve learned in the past 40 years of being in business and creating business. I thought about all of the struggles that I went through unnecessarily.
So many people — sometimes they’re sales people and sometimes they’re technicians, but they get this idea, “Hey. I’m going to start a business. This is a great idea.” I’m sorry, but sometimes they have no idea what they’re getting into. You can be a number one sales person or you can be a great technician, but running a business is a whole new learning curve. It’s totally different.
So they start a business and they discover that this is not what they expected. There are so many things they didn’t know. So I decided at this point in time, when I had my brilliant idea in the shower, “Hey, I should put together a list of steps that it takes to create a successful business.”
That’s when I came up with the idea of writing “More Power.” It’s kind of a mentorship in a book taking you step by step with the basics. This is what you need to do not only to create a business but to make it successful and to carry it through to where it becomes a legacy for you and your children or whatever you want to do with it.
Patrick: And repeatable. That’s the other part about it. You’ve repeated this process and now you’re mentoring others around the country and around the world to create that.
