Yes. Michael really makes his points simple and concise and then backs them up with very practical examples. He also makes it very entertaining and believable. I immediately listened to it two times in a row and will probably listen again every few months. I wished this book was around years ago.
This has to be one of the top books that I have read (listened). Simple to understand, entertaining, and very practical to implement.
The vendor collaboration is pure genius.
It's read by the author and it's like he is on steroids, a torrent of words comes your way the moment you press the Play button.
Have it read by a different person
It's one of the few books that I haven't finished.
I would if he did not narrate it.
The ideas are good. The metaphor is good. It's clear and helpful.
The narrator really distracts the listener from hearing the information. He makes up voices for everyone he quotes and they sound constipated or mentally challenged. His humor is that of an insecure freshman trying to impress - lame and more embarrassing than keeping quiet. I usually cut the narrator a lot of slack, especially if it is their book, but this one I couldn't let go. It actually made me angry while I was listening to it. I was frustrated to be thinking about how stupid it sounded instead of how I can be a better business person. I think the book would probably be a great one if it were just read out loud without all the angsty guffaws.
Love this book. It's everything you want in a business book:
- Great stories
- Taught by someone who's done it.
I would, and have. Mike does a fantastic job explaining the techniques he used to take his business from money pit to cash cow! Great advice and easy to understand/listen.
Mike gives you ideas, stories and secrets he has used to grow his business. It is not just another "self help" or "speculation" book. He is the real deal Holyfield.
I must admit after listening to the sample audio and reading reviews on his delivery in this and the Toilet Paper Entrepreneur I was a little apprehensive to say the least. Being a first time business owner I figured the most I had to loose was a few minutes of my time; if I didn't like it I would move on. After a few chapters into the book I was hooked, the advice Mike gives is priceless. Though he may have a bad accent or two, sorry Mike, the message and overall performance are great!
Made me laugh at times.
Great read, great advise, refreshing delivery! New insights to some things that REALLY hit home for me. Thanks Mike!
very good better than most of the books I read and and and and
dont know I hadn't read any books and a don adnsna and a nd and ansnd
where he kisses the girl the are no scenes in the book
my pumpkin is bigger than yours
I regularly recommend this book because it shares simple (not to be confused with "easy") concepts that ought to be applied in any business, but frequently are not.
I most liked the case study examples of businesses that took Mike's wisdom to heart and yielded great results.
Many. One favorite was Mike's explanation of how to apply the Pumpkin Plan in a local service business context. Also his explanation of finding your business's "-est" and capitalizing on it.
This book made me feel like I "could." It will expand your "can do" attitude. It did make me laugh out loud a couple times.
I realize this is a bold claim, but I believe that literally anyone who has existing business or is starting a new one can benefit from this book.
Enjoyable and practical
Story is well delivered.
His dynamics. He's a good reader and engages with the listener.
Full of practical and fun examples that you will want to put to the test. Good book.
