Rick Baylor may be a sign company owner in the book, but he could just as easily be a retail store owner, a lawyer, a doctor, a real estate agent, or a manufacturer. Struggles in business are real and they are universal. Creating systems and procedures works in any business and is a key difference in small businesses that suck in an owner to doing day to day operations and companies that run without the owner being active every single day.
