  • The Power of Self-Confidence: Become Unstoppable, Irresistible, and Unafraid in Every Area of Your Life

    Why are some people more successful than others? Self-confidence! What one great goal would you set if you knew you could not fail? What wonderful things would you want to do with your life if you were guaranteed success in anything you attempted? Your level of self-confidence determines the size of the goals you set, the energy and determination that you focus on achieving them, and the amount of persistence you apply to overcoming every obstacle.

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

    While I like the book, the audio was difficult to listen to because the recording volume wasn't as high as other books, so even turning up the volume on my phone to the highest volume wasn't quite enough. If you've read Brian Tracy's other books, this is really the same content from them, just rewritten and repackaged. That said, I guess it can never hurt to hear these messages multiple times.


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

    Not nearly as good a performance as No Excuses.

  • The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future

    Still in his early 30s, Chris is on the verge of completing a tour of every country on earth – he’s already visited more than 175 nations - and yet he’s never held a “real job” or earned a regular paycheck. Rather, he has a special genius for turning ideas into income, and he uses what he earns both to support his life of adventure and to give back. In The $100 Startup, he tells you how to lead of life of adventure, meaning and purpose - and earn a good living.

    Would you listen to The $100 Startup again? Why?

    I would probably not listen to it again because of the narration, which simply didn't reflect the author's voice and intention. I've heard the author speak on podcasts, and can't imagine why the publisher didn't have him narrate the book. It would have been a much richer experience.


    What didn’t you like about Chris Guillebeau and Thomas Vincent Kelly ’s performance?

    The narration sounded almost like it was computerized, lacking the enthusiasm the author clearly had when writing the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed all the stories and the fact that the author interviewed a whole lot of people and not just a handful. I was also pleased to hear one person interviewed who is doing the exact same thing as me.

  • The Referral Engine: Teaching Your Business to Market Itself

    The power of glitzy advertising and elaborate marketing campaigns is on the wane; word- of-mouth referrals are what drive business today. People trust the recommendation of a friend, family member, colleague, or even stranger with similar tastes over anything thrust at them by a faceless company. Most business owners believe that whether customers refer them is entirely out of their hands. But science shows that people can't help recommending products and services to their friends....

    What did you love best about The Referral Engine?

    He gave lots of solid ideas for generating referrals and marketing one's business in general.


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

    No.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Now I want to purchase the print version because it is too hard to remember all the ideas when you're driving around in your car. I am going to listen to it a second time through very soon. I do have to say that it is a good marketing book in general, and not always necessarily related to referrals, but very good nonetheless.
