Absolutely. Sound business advice from the importance of selling, staying true to your mission, and putting family first. It was the most surprising audiobooks I've ever listened too. I wasn't expecting much, but it turned out to be pretty good!
I liked the author's humility with a troubled relationship with his father, his advice about fear and how to use it to your advantage, and allowing his staff to make mistakes to become a better company. It made me an instant fan of his television show even though I have never seen more than three episodes.
Walter Dixon narrates a great book and kept it lively. He's one of Audible's top narrators from my listening experience.
This is good advice for any young managers or new salespersons. Solid advice about fear, integrity and commitment to excellence. All meat no BS.
Less focus on mistakes job seekers make and more on getting in front of decision-makers who actually purchase the labor--not HR departments.
Yes. These type of books seem to be stuck in the pre-2008 mindset of interview skills and not networking and talking to the "right people" in regards to getting your next job.
The narration was fine.
I really enjoyed the author's approach to business. Very simple, straight to the point, and not a lot of fluff or hype. He also talks about success from the very beginning: yourself. If you can't get your habits and health in order, your chances of business success diminish greatly. On the whole, this is far more important than success in business--it sets a foundation for life.
He gives readers the impression that if they work for someone else, they're leaving money on the table. This motivated me even more to start my own business. The least interesting part of the book was the entire "Part III Saving Money" section. Most micro entrepreneurs who go into business have no problems saving money on flights, clothes, and auctions.
His idea in chapter 17 about finding products to sell using Google Search techniques. Also, the concept that you find a hungry market to feed rather than creating a product you think will change the world. Too often people think they can be Henry Ford or Steve Jobs, when in reality, those two were the exception rather than the rule.
I think the author is legitimate because he wrote the book from a layman's perspective. I have personally used his copy writing suggestions and it works.
