I highly recommend this book for all entrepreneurs, and by that I mean anyone “who chooses to live life as his or her true self.” Reading it will help you avoid neglecting yourself as you face down the stress and consternation that is a part of all of our daily lives.
Nick’s thoughtful and well written book is a beautiful story of personal growth and discovery. But more than that it is the first work I’ve come across that focuses on the well-being of entrepreneurs themselves. Nick truly cares for the mind, body and soul of individuals undertaking the journey to live lives that they control themselves. We too often overlook our mental, physical and spiritual health, ultimately to the detriment of ourselves and our ventures. This book is a heartfelt reminder to care for ourselves as individuals, and that in so doing we can achieve any worthy goal we put our minds to.
Always loved reading books. Now listening to more and more audio books as I can do it in the car, or on my phone. Really loving them.
Yes, while it's short, it's packed with good information. This is one I'll listen to multiple times, and cycle back next year too.
I like the story and the narrator. Brings the stories to life.
Easy to listen to and understand
no, actually I needed to pause and reflect on what was stated and bring up my own ideas and relate to how what was being read meant to me personally
This is a book I listened to in my car not once but multiple times. I can keep coming back to it to motivate me, to be positive in my choices, and take a leap of faith.
Inspirational, Thoughtful, Actionable!
The Millionaire Fastlane by MJ DeMarco. Both books offer thoughtful and practical advice for cultivating entrepreneurship as a positive lifestyle, and process that can be learned and practiced.
My favorite part is when Nick gives an alternative definition of entrepreneurship as a situation when a person who chooses to live life as his or her true self. This way of looking at entrepreneurship might be seen as an over-simplification, but has indeed reduced entrepreneurship to its essential qualities of bringing out an entrepreneur's life purpose and creative potentials.
I am particularly inspired when Nick mentions the life and work of Earl Nightingale in various parts of the book, and reminds us "success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal".
Nick's work on Entrepreneurship Lifestyle offers excellent insights and resources which are not easy to come by for today's entrepreneurs. It contains important reminders of what entrepreneurship is all about, in its essence. I feel truly inspired when he reminds us that an entrepreneur is not just someone who builds a business, but rather is a person who chooses to live life as his or her true self. Many books on similar topics fail to take readers back to this very basic - in that when you fix yourself, your inner entrepreneurial strength will be translated into outer accomplishments.
Nick offers clear and actionable steps that help us get our mind clear, get inspired, and live a purposeful life (i.e. our true self). It points you to some of the best resources that helps you accomplish that. Great book!
Motivational, thought-provoking, valuable
The author's personal experiences really resonated with me.
The personal narration, 1st person point of view, was really brought to life by the narrator Donny Baarns, and really captured the author's voice.
Yes - it was perfect for a long car ride.
Good for family to listen to.. Appropriate for all ages. Looking forward to the next audio book by Cicerchi and Baarns
Meditate, Exercise, Think Positively. That is the entire book. It's unbelievable that Mr. Cicerchi would have the arrogance to think that these extremely widely written about topics are worthy of being rehashed by an amateur with nothing new to add to the thousands of books already written on these topics. It's even more frustrating that Audible would stock such a book and yet not many others that are so much more worthy. Note that Audible has almost nothing on social justice topics, but hundreds of these self help books like this that merely rehash the most obvious wisdom of the ages.
Audible is carrying a disappointing array of novice authors with absolutely nothing original or interesting to say.
The best kinds of books in this genre are the ones that make you feel like you are the target person; that the topic applies directly to you. I think Nick Cicerchi does a terrific job of balancing sourced information and his own take on the matter through relatable experience.
This is my first.
It inspired me and the audio version makes the impact of Cicerchi's insight come alive. You can't help being moved in the direction of your dreams.
I loved it and I look forward to the next one by this author.
