I've wanted to write for TV and Film for a long time. Comedy has always seemed the hardest. Within 20 minutes of listening my motivation was spiked and I felt I had a stronger insight in how to become a paid writer for not only comedy, but drama as well. Finished the book the same night I got it!
Kevin - The made up "darling" we all have was important, because as they always say, "We love our darlings, but you have to kill your darlings".
The entire thing. I especially liked his guides to focusing on three types of conflict. That was extremely eye opening.
Anyone looking to write for TV or film, this is a must read. This made me want to sit down and write again.
I wanted to write "'Nuff Said" but it made me write more words. These are those words. And here are more.
Wow, Richard Branson has always been a powerful figure in the world, but never has he been so inspiring. I've lived a life working to gain and grow my own future by struggling every day to change my family tree. I don't enjoy life and I don't think globally. It's time to change that and this book has done that for me. I am excited to look for more opportunities for growth and have him to thank for that.
While some of this information may feel outdated or old, that is precisely why everyone needs to apply those principles. The men Napoleon Hill wrote about are still considered the richest and most successful men of all time.
This is not just a one pass pick what you can and apply it type of book, this requires dedicated study, application, and revisiting.
Captivating reader, and great content, but a lot of data to consume without visual aids. Very glad I purchased this however.
Anyone struggling with life, jobs, or success needs this book.
Take an hour and a half and change your life. You owe it to yourself.
This book was incredible. A friend of mine who is an entrepreneur shares this with me and I burned through it in one day.
Social is needed, but more than that we have to change our corporate structure for both customers and employees. I've worked in the corporate world for a publicly traded Internet Marketing Agency as it transitioned to a new executive team and changed models completely. The new management needed this book.
I love the lessons the author shares and all of his points resonate with me as I look at the world from an entrepreneurial perspective. I am very grateful to have read this book and will recommend it to others.
Loved this book! It lays out a powerful plan of attack for marketing a new business and it's definitely something I will recommend in the future as well as use!
Very glad I stumbled onto this!
As always, I feel I've come away from this book with a greater understanding of limitations I place on myself and the world around me. I have been changed again.
I have not read the print version, so I can't really answer this one. I will say that with the steps he lays out the print version will probably make it easier to bookmark and review.
The coolest part of this was when the author hit right on the issues I have been contemplating for my business' next steps. He laid out a clear plan of how to accomplish what I want to achieve.
Hearing form the author was awesome. I wish he would have performed the entire book. Thomas Vincent Kelly spoke too slow. At 1.25x speed he sounded normal.
The author is a huge proponent of generating quality and value. This was key as too often in business we think only of how to make money. But providing value really is the key to making money. Why would someone pay for something if there is no value in it?
Anyone looking to start any form of business, especially an online business, should read this book. I put it right up there with Timothy Ferris' "4 Hour Work Week" in terms of helpful information and completeness. You owe it to yourself to reach this book, and then you owe it to your future clientele and customers to follow the processes he lays out. After listening to this book the first time, I immediately recommended it to several friends I have been coaching on how to get a business off the ground. A must read!
