    Inspiration for Entrepreneurs


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book provided me with a lot of insights that helped me to identify business opportunities.


    What does Walter Dixon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I was able to listen to the book on my way to and from work. And I listened to it several times. I can't read while driving and I almost never read a book more than once.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to it in several 45 minute intervals during my daily commute. I don't think I would have processed all the information if I did it all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    The author makes mention of different stereo types that may seem insulting to some, but it helps to get his points across.Try and listen to the point that he is making instead of taking offence to his stereo typing.This book provides some great insights that will help you to spot business opportunities and avoid pitfalls.

    Say good-bye to your beloved Benjamins, because the world is going cashless. So says David Wolman, and in The End of Money, he explores the drastic implications. How is it happening? What's at stake? Why does it matter? Each chapter of this timely and fascinating audiobook focuses on a specific aspect of the coming cashlessness. All told, The End of Money offers everything there is to love about popular nonfiction, rendering a complex subject entertaining and easily approachable for a wide audience while proving the ultimate adventurousness inherent in a curiosity about the workings of the world.

    In the tradition of their number-one blockbuster Why We Want You to Be Rich, the all-star team of best-selling authors Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki reunites to teach listeners what it takes to be successful and influential entrepreneurs in Midas Touch. What makes some business owners wildly successful? What separates the entrepreneurs who build businesses from ones who just seem to create more work for themselves? Here are answers.

    Where does Midas Touch rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    If you've read the Rich Dad books then this book offers nothing new, but the hearing Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki talk about their ups and downs is very motivational for a young entrepreneur.
    I now have Trump's acronym FOCUS (Follow One Course Until Successful) hanging above my desk and it is a constant reminder that keeps me on track throughout the day.

    If all you want is good entrepreneurial advice, then there are better books out there. If you want some motivation to keep you going through the hard times then this book is great.


    What other book might you compare Midas Touch to and why?

    The Rich Dad series or any Brian Tracy book offers the same advice.


    Which character – as performed by John Dossett and Skipp Sudduth – was your favorite?

    I was particularly inspired by Robert's stories about the mistakes he made. I have made many of the same mistakes and his success motivates me to keep trying.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Never Say "Die".
