    Instructive as it is innovative, Unlabel will empower you to channel your creativity, find the courage to defy convention, and summon the confidence to act and compete in any environment. This blueprint will teach you how to grow both creatively and commercially by testing your personal brand against the principles of the Authenticity Formula. Marc Eckō shares the bruising mistakes and remarkable triumphs that reveal the truth behind his success, growing from a misfit kid airbrushing T-shirts in his parents' garage to the bold creator of two hugely successful branded platforms.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    teenagers with big dreams


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    eckhart tolle


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Todd Haberkorn and Marc Ecko ?

    it wasnt the msngr, it was the msg that made this audiobook a tired listen.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Unlabel?

    basically, the marc ecko brand story is a repeat of blindslided failures & Hail Mary successes over and over again. it could have been told in a more encouraging way as his brand story is amazing, but it felt like he needed to describe every second of his life, which at some point to the listener was just indulgent, much like his own story and approach to the early years of his brand. Less is more would be my suggestion.


    Any additional comments?

    though i would not listen to this again, i would recommend parts of it to anyone who would benefit from his story.

    Story

    Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local “powhitetrash.” At eight years old, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age - and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. But years later, she learns about love for herself and the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors.

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

    yes, already have. triumph over adversity, an amazing story of the human experience at its worst and very best.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings?

    my most memorable was, as children, Maya and her brother Bailey laughing uncontrollably during church service when the preacher's false teeth fell out onto the floor.


    What about Maya Angelou’s performance did you like?

    her narration colored the story so vividly that I could often imagine exactly what these places, faces and things would be and feel like.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt the highs and lows of the human experience as Maya may have wanted her audience to. I never cried, but surely did laugh when it was funny. I felt a greater appreciation for Ms. Angelou and the amazing light she was to so many, myself included.


    Any additional comments?

    its a long audiobook, but worth the listen as so much of our life's journey takes twists and turns we can only understand in retrospect, this book shared the hope that we are given life's lemons to make amazing lemonade.

  • Success Through Stillness: Meditation Made Simple

    Master entrepreneur, original hip-hop mogul, and New York Times best-selling author Russell Simmons shares the most fundamental key to success - meditation - and guides listeners to use stillness as a powerful tool to access their potential. In the New York Times best-seller Super Rich, Russell Simmons proved that to be rich is more than just having money in the bank - wealth is about balance, joy, and conscientious living. In Success Through Stillness, Simmons shows the connection between inner peace and outward success.

    Would you try another book from Russell Simmons and/or Herbert Point-Du-Jour?

    nope


    Would you ever listen to anything by Russell Simmons again?

    nope


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    he didn't, the book just didn't do anything for me...in fact, i am now less interested in meditation than before the audiobook.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    hmmmmm, i couldn't finish it, and don't intend to, as it was just boring for me.


    Any additional comments?

    having someone else narrate his book seems lazy and inauthentic in regards to the subject/purity of meditation, that aside, the manner in which it was written was rather dull.
