Other business books spend WAYYYY too much time on theory and abstract examples that really don't help me start my business.
THIS BOOK IS DIFFERENT!
This book really cuts to the chase giving real-world tips and uncommon yet crucial advice.
I want to read this book 10 more times.
All the ideas might not be able to work for anyone. But the spirit and the drive behind each business owners mentioned in the book is a very inspirational one.
Did you like some of the ideas in the 4 hour work week but feel frustrated by the lack of focus on providing real value or doing something you care about? The $100 Startup will scratch that itch. It's full of practical advice from a variety of different small entrepreneurs with a strong focus on doing something that matters and less of the schmarmy "get rich quick" promises of other books.
Innovative Common Sense
I really enjoyed all of the research that went into the book and the real life experiences that were shared.
Got me excited!
Uplifting. Motivating. NOW.
Michael Hanna of Mattress Lot bike delivery. From corporate career to an accidental business person. Use of low cost and green delivery method and pass saving back to their customers. I have read reviews from their customer about their excellent delivery response time and their customer service. Michael and Mary are the kind of people offering the missing piece of modern day capitalism. Think win-win, green and profit.
I travel a lot by driving inter-provincial. This book in audio format offers the kind of continuity (hours of material) in a single sitting that I cannot get in printed format. The stories are interestingly interlaced and yet would not be so digressed that the main points are missed. If you like 4 hours workweek by Tim Ferriss, you will love this one too.
Stop whining about your job (or lack of it). Forget being a boss. Think micro business.
People who didn't read this book don't know what they are forfeiting for the rest of their life.
