    Where does The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved how he explained the worth of an MBA in these days and it can be made for by reading and learning as you go. I believe in hard work and I believe that the core focus of this book was not to rely on a piece of paper you will pay a lot of money for to bring you happiness.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I liked this book because it had a lot of technical lessons. What I didn't like was how it was presented I believe it could've been presented as a story instead of so much like a formula.

    According to the Small Business Administration, 90% of service businesses will fail within the first five years. They fail not because they don't offer great services and products, but because the owners are extremely uncomfortable with traditional marketing and sales. The result is a frustrated, isolated, and overwhelmed business owner who does not know there is an entirely different, highly successful approach to marketing and sales available—and it's laid out in Book Yourself Solid.

  • Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else

    One of the most popular Fortune articles in many years was a cover story called "What It Takes to Be Great." Geoff Colvin offered new evidence that top performers in any field - from Tiger Woods and Winston Churchill to Warren Buffett and Jack Welch - are not determined by their inborn talents. Greatness doesn't come from DNA but from practice and perseverance honed over decades.
