"Few people have done more to inspire an entrepreneur revolution and give entrepreneurs the tools and advice they need to grow their businesses in recent years than Dan. What I love about what he says and what he writes is that it all comes from a deep personal experience of bootstrapping a successful global small business himself from little more than a maxed out credit card." (Mike Harris, Founder of FirstDirect and Egg PLC, author of Find Your Lightbulb)

"This book will totally change the way you think about growing a business. An absolute must read that should be in the hands of more people." (Jeremy Harbour, author of Go Do!)
There were a couple moments that I feel certainly changed me, which is a lot to gain from a five hour audiobook. I am no stranger to researching entrepreneurship, and I honestly expected a lot of the same things I have heard in other books. I was pleasantly surprised to find some of my ideas challenged. This book will motivate you, if he was selling something I would have bought it! I also enjoyed some of the thought challenges and activities presented in the book.
Motivation is great, but what about take away? I'll be honest, towards the mid-end I lost a little drive. I get frustrated trying to decide how to filter, find, and develop ideas. The ending was crazy powerful to me however, and I now want to listen again. Especially chapter 7.
I read these books expecting to both become inspired and leave with actions I can take to making my dreams a reality. 5/5 for motivation and purpose, this book has it. From a practical sense, I felt somewhat like the advice was geared more towards his marketing background than other business ideas. There will never be a step by step guide to creation, because your business and life is untrodden ground.
Bottom line is its worth 5 hours of your life, and I look forward to more listens and gems of knowledge gained. Thank you Daniel!
Absolutely. It is a wonderful book, especially to anyone who is thinking of becoming an entrepreneur. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I am currently listening to it for the 2nd time, some parts i've heard about 7 times.
Haven't read any books that compare yet.
Excellent reading by Glen McCready.
I think the title is perfect, gripping: Entrepreneur Revolution, sounds like Atlas Shrugged.
I am directing a Municipal Entrepreneurship Center in a developing country. Needless to say, the challenges we are facing are huge, but so are the opportunities. I am also a mentor for this center, and I have to admit sometimes I run out of ideas. That is until I downloaded this audiobook. It is completely filled with valuable tips, strategies and insights that I have found very helpful. From the "product ecosystem" to the "7 maxims" that every entrepreneur should follow, I enjoyed every second. I absolutely recommend it for anyone who is thinking about joining the entrepreneur revolution.
Yes. It was filled with so many insights and valuable pieces of information that it will take more than one sitting to fully digest!
"Stop reading other peoples books and writ your own!"
Clear and matter of fact.
Yes. Had to space it over two days though..
Highly recommend this book for everyone. It opens a vision of an abundant life possible to those willing to put the effort in, and with access to a little luck..
A very insightful and practical book that has changed the way I view my business and the opportunities that our global market has... A must read for anyone at any stage of business to thrive in the new economy. It has helped me focus on the joy of creating and not consuming, plus given me a strategic road map to bring greater value to my clients and profit to my bottom line. Thanks Daniel!
This book put me in the right mind set. I am 22 years old and an aspiring entrepreneur. I had very little idea on where to start with becoming an entrepreneur and this book gave me a great starting point. I highly recommend it and will revisit this book regularly!
This is one of the most important books for entrepreneurs you can read today.
It covers the essential mindset and action plan for entrepreneurship in easy to grasp way that no other book that I've come across does.
Great thoughts on entrepreneurship. Focuses on the entrepreneur's mindset and taking action, but also has more tangible content, like methods and techniques. Lean forward and have a listen!
I’ve been toying with the concept of an entrepreneurial venture for quite some time. This book has given me the inspiration and an process to implement an action plan. I’ve now listened to the book twice, and I plan to re-listen to it multiple times throughout my process.
Easy to understand.
Why not the "Entrepreneurial Revolution"? It was intriguing enough for me to buy the audio book.
The content and the fact that it is relevant to my way of life and thought. I want to work on my own for myself, so I picked up this book. The ATM seems helpful.
Accentuation of the text. Not a flat reader. Much appreciated.
The entrepreneur revolution - How to make it on your own.
Love the breakdown of the different models and phases to becoming an entrepreneur. Many things that I've been grappling with and considering, Daniel lays out very simply. Daniel encourages you to read / listen to the book more than once. I've already done it three times and will definitely do it again! Thanks Daniel.
"Not for me"
I enjoyed the opening few chapters which were positive and full of enthusiasm but I'm afraid once the book got practical, it lost me. I realised pretty quickly that I'm not an "entrepreneur" in the sense of this book, even though I've set up and run 4 successful businesses in the past decade. I have no desire to create a global business or to have great wealth. My businesses are there to support my way of life.
The idea of walking around with £1,000 in my pocket just so I can refuse to buy things I could get with that wad of cash is, for me, totally ludicrous. The idea of making 3 calls randomly, inviting a stranger to lunch etc etc. Nope. Even more crazy is the contention that I need to price my core product at £1,000+. I sell craft kits. Lots of them. But none cost a grand.
By the terms of this book, I'm an abject failure. Fortunately for me, I'm a happy one.
The narration is pretty good - nice to have an English accent for a change. He does sound a little like C3PO when played at 1.5x speed.
Easy reading/listening. Very succinct and to the point. Relates to all ages. Use especially as a tool to help generate thought processes and ideas.
"Fantastic guide and outlook of the brave new world"
I already have listened to this twice. \at first I thought YES! This is how i feel. Even though it only goes for 5 hours its jammed packed with value
Daniel Priestley...his the only character
Very well spoken and performed.
I didn't want to stop listening once i started.
This book was exactly what I needed at the right time. It outlines everything I agree with in the changing world and highlights things we should be doing in enjoy what we want out of life even beyond business. It's packed with an impressive amount of value and encouragement. Can't wait to listen again!
"Some good info"
Good style and length. The ATM was the key takeaway for me. What was the secret ingredient? I reckon it was passion/love in what you do and how you do it.
"Get ready for the information revolution."
enjoyable listen. I have a number of business and self help books but this has a look on the horizon and how to be an information entrepreneur. Some great tips
Probably one of the best books I have ever read on the subject of Entrepreneurship.
I loved this book, so inspiring! If you are thinking about creating a business you must read or listen to this book! It's a book you can listen too over again and still take something away every time.
"A really good read"
I really enjoyed it, I will read it again taking notes and doing the exercises this time. I enjoyed the narrator too.
I have Listened to this Book a few times and it is brilliant. I would definitely recommend that yo get this if you are thinking of setting up yourself.
Must read for everyone who starting/running a business.
Highly recommend to everyone, any age, any profession.
