1st off, it was short. I listened at 3 times the speed, went for a drive, and had finished to book by the time i got back home. Every bit of this book was to the point.
To me, it blew away the 4 hour work week, because it was not about hiring virtual assistants and skipping emails. It was about building a company that is truly better without you. Building systems and inspecting what you expect.
I liked it a lot. At 3x speed he sounded very clear.
The business is better off without me working in it.
I'd love to chat with the author, Scott Fritz
Important, informative, interesting.
Honestly at first, I was hesitated about this book thinking it might be boring and filled with unnecessary details but it proved me wrong. It's very easy & good read. It will give you very informative and helpful strategies if you are thinking to go into business.
Actually, his voice is very suitable to the content of the book. It kept me 100% focused.
"For those of you who thinking of using SBA for some or all of your starter funding, I have one piece of advice: DO NOT DO IT."
"I recall the four piece of success that I learned back when I was a teenager: passion, positivity, resistance and patience."
I highly recommend it to all of you and trust me it's very smooth read you won't even feel the time. Not boring at all, in fact, it's really entertaining.
There are exercises in it that will help you to determine where do you stand and how can you start working ON your business not IN your business.
Mr. Fritz, you have done a wonderful job putting this book together. It helped me a lot in some of my future plans.
I like how condense it was. Perfect to listen to in a train or gym setting.
Lean start-up maybe
Not much. Maybe Scott Fritz himself?
The books you read and the people you associate yourself with will make you who you are 5 years from now!
Yes, I have listened and read this book 4 separate times. That doesn't include the many times I have referenced it as a guide while working through different mind set shifts in my business! - I highly recommend this book for the Job owners / entrepreneurs that is coach-able and teachable. If you are not, then I would recommend you go back to your job.
Each Chapter is not a chapter, but a mindset shift! It doesn't matter were you are in your business. You will relate to each chapter!
He draws me in as a listener! I don't want to fall asleep because of how he reads the book. His voice goes up and down and gives vivid images to your mind as you listen.
What really moved me in this book was the understanding of how valuable values are in a company! Our Values Govern our decision making. This book taught me this and was explained in a way that made me understand exactly what to do. Or at least have a really good idea on the direction.
This book is for someone that doesn't want to recreate the wheel of business and just wants to start enjoying the fun part to an entrepreneur's life!
