Loved Seven Years and I have now found a new bible for my business endeavors. This is like the child-rearing blueprint no parent should be without! It is great to see a no-nonsense guide with no false promises of overnight success.
I've listened twice and plan to listen several more times.
this guy is the real deal and wrote several other books.
this is his climactic work.
you can skip the others, they are trials leading to this.
First of all amazing amazing amazing content. Very inspirational and educational. BUT even though this wasn't the worst audio book I've heard... The delivery still wasn't as good as the content. Would have been nice to have the actual author do it.
There is a little too much self-aggrandizement in this book for my liking. Get some good advice but if you're looking for a more practical and then my opinion useful e-book look for the knack or as it's titled now StreetSmarts by Norm Brodsky.
I found the book incredibly useful for helping to re-look at my five year old business and approach my new start business in an entirely different way. Listened to the whole audiobook twice through.
I found the advice entertaining, important and motivating. Definitely one of the better books I have listened to. The material lends itself to an audiobook well.
equal but different for the obvious reason
He was able to speak directly to what business owners are going through.
Great business book provides understanding, action and encouragement. I would highly recommend reading it if you are a business owner.
This is great book written by someone with real life experience growing businesses from scratch. It makes a great point of emphasising the importance of sales and revenue, and working on refining your product or service later. It has many points in common with The Lean Start-Up, but I have to say I enjoyed listening to this one much more. This is a great how to manual on pinpointing your business' major focus and how to get it to the next level. Highly recommended.
This is by far one of the greatest business books I've come across. It hits on every aspect of business, but with the mindset of applying the principles instead of just hearing them.
It's like one of my other favorites, The Four Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris. The theme for the two is to just get SOMETHING done, and tweak it along the way. The main difference is Ferris's book goes into other aspects of life while Masterson sticks to business.
This really hit home for me, "I was showing up for work every day and was putting in plenty of time, but I wasn't really managing the business at all. I was tweaking products that didn't need tweaking, while neglecting sales."
