I enjoyed this audiobook. It was very informative for me, i have my own small business but im clueless as far as proper management and growth. i have big plans for myself and my business. this book certainly helps!!!
This is a concisely delivered, full-scope summary of business as a whole. It is extremely dense with useful information. It delves into peripheral topics seamlessly, including the art of improving the self as it pertains to excelling in business. I would recommend this for anybody interested in any kind of business, beginner to expert.
Easy to listen to.
I've listened to several audio books on this topic, and the Personal MBA is my favorite! I was expecting this book to be more business driven, but it turned out to be a very well rounded guide for best practices in everyday life. Josh does an excellent job of keeping the listener engaged by mixing in personal stories, citing quotes, and referencing other influential books most impactful concepts. I will certainly start on his recommended reading list to expand on topics Josh touched on.
It didn't come close to meeting even my lowest expectations... Very sophomoric. If you want to learn something, it's not going to happen by listening to this. Sorry to say, it's not worth ones time.
Josh Kaufman's e-book is clear, concise and effective. I like that the chapters are set up in such a way that you can go back and find those concepts that are most important to you for repetition and assimilation.
Yes, if they are interested in pursuing a business venture, or learning how to a business actually operates this is an in-depth introduction.
Focus on the mind, how to work alone, how to work with people, and improving systems.
Personal MBA and its adjoining websites are excellent resources for the aspiring entrepreneur or seasoned professional. You are bound to learn something new, or reinforce what you may already know.
The bashing in the beginning lowered my expectations of the book which in the end made it ok. Book is a lot about practical business process and inspiration. One thing that is missed and which I think is the biggest advantage of a MBA programs and the main readon I would justify the cost is the network you build up. This is totally neglected in the book and it is focused on practical things. Still worth to listen.
the book was great. it has a few areas where josh repeats the same phrase back to back that need to be cleaned up. aside from that, the book is chocked full with nothing but golden nuggets.
If you like business books, this needs to be on your list. I learned some great new concepts, refreshed some former knowledge, added add some fuel to my fire of learning.
The author performs the narration, and does a stand up job. The book has great structure, and keeps you interested.
