How informative and inspirational it was.
Anything by this writer is highly recommended, I am a huge fan of his blog and all the books he has written so far.
The book is extremely helpful and entertaining. Great info for today's economy.
No. I liked listening to one chapter at a time, as I was able to.
I highly recommend this.
Yes. This is an up-to-date foundational book on 21st century entrepreneurialism. At first I thought this was just another how to make money on the internet vomitus, and I almost didn't finish reading it. What I pleasantly discovered is how the world of commerce and being an entrepreneur have changed with technology. This is an excellent business book for anyone who has an idea or passion for something and wonders if there might just be a way to make money, preserve your values, and discover freedom along the way.
Get it. Listen to it two times and then just when you think you get it - listen to it a third time. Technology today is measured by speed but it still takes us humans time to learn.
Enjoyed the info, some new stuff, and some stuff that I've heard before. The only problem I had with the audio, was that the narrator sounded like a robot voice, answering machine voice or an automated voice that you get when dialing an 800 number.
When robots make money
It was for me because I spend so much time in my car
The author because he was the on relating the story
I was inspired by the man who lost his job and started a mattress business
I liked the content and message but found the music and reading voice a bit annoying.
any current or potential entrepreneur
Great. Good story and great narrator.
He gives blueprints based on case studies on how to execute on the ideas in the book.
Yes. I even listened to it twice.
Chris Guillebeau is making his living by do what he loves. This book shows how he did it, and how he inspired others to follow their dreams. The anecdotes are inspiring, and the ideas are practical. I enjoyed hearing Chris' voice in the introduction, and Thomas Kelly does well with the book itself. Well worth listening to, as it is inspiring me to take action on my dreams.
In less than 2 hours of listening I changed my life.
Here is one of the most memorable moments (my paraphrase). If you give a fish, you feed the person for a day. If you teach a person to fish, you only make the person happy if he or she is a hungry fisherman. :)
Although I haven't read anything else by Chris Guillebeau, the narration is well-pace with appropriate tone and inflection for the content. I'm enjoying it at 1.25 playback speed. Very good.
The $100 Startup offers a unique, practical point of view.
Yes. There is just so much practical tips and advice from this book. I even stopped listening and started doing some small things to start on one of its advice.
I like the consistency of the tone and pace. The sentences were read in proper context with the content and paragraph.
It's hard to listen to this in one sitting without getting up and trying to start working on some ideas. This book makes your mind work for your business.
