Wall Street Journal best-selling author Jon Acuff reveals the steps to getting unstuck and back onto the path of being awesome.
Over the last 100 years, the road to success for most everyone has been divided into predictable stages. But three things have changed the path to success:
While none of the stages can be skipped, they can be shortened and accelerated. There are only two paths in life: average and awesome. The average path is easy because all you have to do is nothing. The awesome path is more challenging, because things like fear only bother you when you do work that matters. The good news is Start gives listeners practical, actionable insights to be more awesome, more often.

Book nerd for life!
It was narrated by the author and he was passionate about the book.
Same as the book
I needed an audiobook that wasn't boring and that would keep my interest. This definitely was it. I was procrastinating reading/listening to this book, and it was everything and more. Loved the enthusiasm (can't beat hearing the author narrate the book), lots of good stories and motivation and tips. I now want to read more of Jon's books. I'm officially punching fear in the face and starting!

Zig Ziglar - See you at the Top
To many to list. Great book. A must listen!
You will hit all emotions. Hopefully anger is not one. All of my reactions aloud were sometimes over the top loud. I listened to it on dog walks in the forest. Take a recorder or something to take notes.
Awkward, Forced, but, Focused
I didn't have any extreme reactions just some brief reflections.
Good read overall.
Don't listen to those other reviews about name dropping. Jon Acuff's Start is a great book for those looking to "start" something in their lives. Inspiring in ways I never expected, I really enjoyed the audiobook. This is a good read/listen for anyone, whether you have a job, are looking for one, or want to start your own business.
Thank you John for this amazing book! I am looking forward to listening to it again and again. There is so much information in here I learn something more each time I listen. So thank you

Before listening I was doing many of the suggested things. But fear always cropped up. Now I have some validation for what I do as well as tools to punch that darn fear where it hurts! Thanks Jon Acuff!
I listen to 2 to 3 audiobooks a month. This was the most enjoyable, humorous, and actionable book I've listened to in the last year and a half. I hope I some day get to meet Jon thank him for starting me on the road to Awesome.
