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.

Jon is hilarious in a dry, sarcastic kind of way. His book is educational, inspiring and entertaining. He also includes attainable and reasonable action steps.
Especially if paired with another speaker Hal Elrod.. I even feel lighter and happier after listening the Start!!!
I am forever grateful and hoping one day to help others as much as John does!
I needed a jolt to help me feel more confident to jump into launching out as a full time business owner. Totally got that and more from this book. Thanks, Jon Acuff for keeping it real and giving us such awesome insight! I'm ready to find my awesome :)
The material in this book so spoke to my condition that I bought the hardback so I can re-read it as a textbook. Tonight I will begin to re-read it and follow the in-text assignments as they are printed. Thank you, Jon, for this in-my-face look at me, and most importantly, what I can do today to change for the better.
Read it. Filled with uncanny insight into your fears and inner thoughts, Jon knows how you feel and think and addresses each objection you may have to becoming awesome.
I enjoyed this audiobook because john sounds enthusiastic and passionate. His context is both relatable and precise as he drives the reader through a series of stories that makes the topics more relatable. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone at any point in their journey to becoming awesome.

Good seriously - not the same as quitter if that's what you're thinking . I know I was
Jon is passionate for what he does. You want to here it!
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.
