    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend this book for it's functional information.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Josh Kaufman? Why or why not?

    I would hesitate to try another book by Josh Kaufman, unless it had a different narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Josh Kaufman’s performances?

    Unfortunately, his clipped voice and unusual pronunciation made it difficult to concentrate on the otherwise interesting subject matter.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Listening to this book is a personal battle between loving the content and trying to tune out the talker.


    Any additional comments?

    I probably should have gone old-school and bought the printed version, or at least the ebook.

    Would you try another book from Napolean Hill and Jamie McIntyre and/or the narrators?

    I will try to buy a different version of think and grow rich


    What could Napolean Hill and Jamie McIntyre have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Jamie McIntyre tries to teach people ways to get rich quick. As a Dave Ramsey follower, I truly believe that these get rich quick schemes not only area quick way to financial ruin, but also a way to end relationships. Instead of looking for get rich quick schemes, offer not only long term wealth building advice, but also suggestions of plans used that helped people in various financial ruin situations. Stories from the individuals themselves of how they bounced back would be great. If you wish to cut ties with your relationships for profit gain, buy this version!


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader spoke way too fast, and the chapters skipped mid-chapter. Worst audiobook version I purchased.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger. The idea of asking for your parent's inheritance early is an example. My stepfather and mother are currently in a position where they have to work until their last days instead of enjoying the fruits of their hard work for the very reason of his kids asking for inheritances early. Do not put that on your parents. Money or financial gain is not worth the misery of others. Whatever situation you are in, the storm will pass. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Put your faith in God, and don't give up. You will reach the goal to financial freedom if you follow a plan.


    Any additional comments?

    I want my money back on this book.

By twenty-two, she had resigned herself to employment, but was still broke, directionless, and working a mediocre day job she’d taken for the health insurance. It was there that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Eight years later, she is the founder, CEO, and creative director of Nasty Gal, a $100 million plus online fashion retailer with more than 350 employees.

    Alignment is the single most critical business challenge for any organization and its leaders. Without it, inefficiency, conflict, and disengagement will cripple your ability to provide value to your customers. Companies live or die based on their ability to communicate and deliver on the promise their brand makes to its customers. To do this effectively, leaders need to clearly define the vision and strategies that support that brand intention and ensure these are manifested in the roles, expectations, and goals of each and every member of the organization.

Six years later, annual sales had soared from $5 billion to $16 billion with significant improvement in profitability. The secret? Making fewer, bigger, and bolder bets and stopping a lot of small stuff.
