In my search for the perfect business venture, I've read book after book by authors like Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump. This was the first book I've read that talks about the bare bones of building a business. It takes off all of the fluff, and throws reality in your face. It made me realize that I have no desire to be in a position of such power. I'm more like Marc's twin sister, Marci. I'd be the voice of reason and keep the business organized, rather than being the person with the billion dollar ideas and having to face the gatekeepers.
One of the most memorable moments for me was when Marc showed up to a business meeting high on marijuana, and Seth had to make him realize whose lives he was jeopardizing because of that decision. Marc is honest and wears his mistakes likes badges of honor. After all, we are all who we are because of our experiences. Changing it would change the course of history. What's important, is what we learn from those mistakes.
I loved all the characters. Everyone was real, and I can appreciate what each has gone through.
I downloaded this book out of laziness and curiosity. It showed up on a "you might like these" list. I was pleasantly surprised and found myself wanting to listen on weekends, instead of just during my commute. I had never heard of Marc Ecko or the Rhino or Ecko unlimited, but now I feel like I know a bit about all of these. Thanks for sharing your story Marc!!! - from a Southern California mom, wife, and employee who's learning how to find her creative self in this world.
