A great all around book for knowing how to build brand and how to use social media. Very action oriented which I needed.
I just wrote a book and am getting ready to self-publish. I was intimidated and confused by social media. Now I have a practical tool-kit to help me build my platform with confidence.
Michael breaks down branding in a refreshing way! I learned a lot of new tips and refreshed my current knowledge. A great read (listen) for any small business owner looking to improve and grow their brand.
Book is a good overview of the platform concept created by the author. Demonstrates the richness of the concept. More than a year of podcast material, all in one place and integrated nicely. Michael Hyatt never fails to add value.

This is a good overview for someone new into building a "platform" or a following of fans. Comprehensive overview. But not a lot of depth.
Very practical tips, I feel like I need to revisit it a couple of times or maybe take notes next time I'm listening to the book. I look forward to taking my children's book series to the next level.
Thank you Michael!
