    Story

    Ask a member of the middle class what it takes to become wealthy, and she'll tell you it takes a bold new idea. Tell that to a self-made millionaire, and he'll vehemently disagree. What explains the difference in mind-set between the self-made wealthy and the rest of us? It's not what you think, as journalist and entrepreneur Lewis Schiff convincingly illustrates through groundbreaking research and compelling storytelling.

    Hayden says: "The lessons are very different to what I expected"
    "A brilliant book with great insight into business"

  • Street Smarts: An All-Purpose Tool Kit for Entrepreneurs

    People starting out in business tend to seek step-by-step formulas or rules, but in reality there are no magic bullets. Rather, says veteran company-builder Norm Brodsky, there's a mentality that helps street- smart entrepreneurs solve problems and pursue opportunities as they arise. Brodsky shares his hard-earned wisdom every month in Inc. magazine, in the hugely popular "Street Smarts" column he cowrites with Bo Burlingham. Now they've adapted their best advice into a comprehensive guide for anyone running a small business.

    Story
    What did you love best about Street Smarts?

    Real information for entrepreneurs presented in digestible stories with analysis of what to do and what not to do. Far better than the typical business books which are filled with philosophies but no way to implement them. If you own a business or are thinking about starting one, listen to this book!

    Meet Emily and Paul: The parents of two young children, Emily is the newly promoted VP of marketing at a large corporation while Paul works from home or from clients' offices as an independent IT consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. Just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

    Lindblad says: "An amazing insight to the brain"
    "Chock full of great brain info!"

    "Have you ever felt caught between the tension of a day job and a dream job? That gap between what you have to do and what you’d love to do? I have. At first I thought I was the only one who felt that way, but then I started to talk to people and realized we’re becoming the “I’m, but” generation. When we talk about what we do for a living we inevitably say, 'I’m a teacher, but I want to be an artist.'"

    Mike says: "It passed the time, but lacked what I was seeking"
    "An inspiring and humorous read"

    Story
    Where does Quitter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of the more inteesting books I have listened to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Acuff uses personal experience to get his point across.


    What about Jon Acuff’s performance did you like?

    He has a lot of great points and uses a little humor to explain them and keep your attention.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Quitter?

    Don't quit until you have prepared for it!
