    Some people think Jay-Z is just another rapper. Others see him as just another celebrity/mega-star. The reality is, no matter what you think Jay-Z is, he is first and foremost a business. And as much as Martha Stewart or Oprah, he has turned himself into a lifestyle. This audiobook explains just how Jay-Z propelled himself from the bleak streets of Brooklyn to the heights of the business world.

    If you could sum up Empire State of Mind in three words, what would they be?

    Captivating, Interesting and Brilliance of mega proportions.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a great story about a former drug dealer who has become a multimillionaire and is married to one of the most beautiful,talented, megastar, and wealthiest women in the world - Beyouce. I really appreciated learning from the authors perspective on Jay-Z and his business and marketing acumen. Jay-Z is a marketing genius and I really appreciate that he did not participate in giving away free information for this book because he would not benefit from it financially. Makes sense. Now my question is how do I apply the principals that made Jay-Z millions? I respect Jay-Z and rap so much more because it has become mainstream. It is not a black thing, a white thing, or a purple thing is is a young thing with International flavor. A nice read, opps, I mean a really nice listen.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Pratt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Nope.

    We all want to lead a life of our own making. But in today's accelerated world, with its competing priorities, information overload, and confounding options, we can easily find ourselves steered by impulse, stress, or expedience. Are our decisions the right ones? Or are we being governed, time and time again, and against our best intentions, by the demands of the moment?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this audio book to a friend because it makes good sense. What you do in the next 10 minutes will create what happens in the next 10 hours, 10 mouths and 10 years.


    If you’ve listened to books by Suzy Welch before, how does this one compare?

    I have not listed to other books by Suzy Welch before.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This is a self-help audio book to help get your life together. Basically, if you looking at and doing certain tasks in the short term - this book can help you create the intermediate and long term design of your life.

    I really like the book because I had a similar idea when I was running and training for marathons back in the day. Overall I have run 7 marathons the most recent was about 10 years ago. I use the Galloway methodology of run/walking for a set period of time. For me and my pace group I ran for 7 minutes and walked for a set period of time - which was usually 1 minute. Run 7, walk 1. Run for 7 minutes and walk for 1 minute over and over again until you have completed one mile, two miles - 26.2 miles.

    What I discovered was that I did not focus on the 26.2 miles ahead of me at the start of a training session or an actual marathon. I focused on the next 7 minuets until my walk break. When my walk break was done after a minute or so I only focused on the next 7 minutes of running at a steady strong pace.

    What I discovered is that if you do something for 7 minutes with small breaks over a long period of time, you can accomplish pretty much anything. Hello, like running a marathon!

    Let me be clear, I am not a marathoner. I do not have a learn body mass, like the Ethiopians or the Kenyans. I am athletic but not like your typical marathoners body which is usually really learn with not much stomach fat. I got fat. Lots of fat around the mid section.

    So how do you accomplish something that you normally could not accomplish? You break it down into smaller parts. What I did while training and running marathons was I kept my body hydrated and nourished during the walk breaks and I only looked forward to the next 7 minutes. After my running days were over and I went back to walking due to a knee injury and subsequent surgery I suffered in my senior as a JMU as an outside linebacker.

    I started reflecting and thinking about how to get things accomplished. I thought why not use the methodology that I used when I was running marathons to everyday life things. So that is how I got things accomplished and came up with the ideal literally 7-7-7.

    Seven minutes of running lead to 7 days of training, lead to 7 months, 7 years and 7 marathons.
