Publisher's Summary

Businesses can plateau, stall, or stagnate...without the owners or key executives even realizing it. A business might be achieving incremental year-on-year growth and yet still be in a situation of stagnation or stall. Why? Because entrepreneurs and executives often focus on the wrong things and don't know how to solve the problems that get their businesses stuck.

The purpose of The Sticking Point Solution is to help entrepreneurs and executives recognize the ways in which their businesses may be stuck, and to then give them tools for getting unstuck and enjoying exponential growth.

To achieve this, Jay will help you to identify the nine "sticking points". They are:

  • 1. stuck losing out to competitors instead of taking the lead in their marketplaces.
  • 2. stuck at low levels of sales instead of selling wisely and selling more.
  • 3. stuck with erratic sales volume instead of thinking strategically and systematically about their businesses
  • 4. stuck failing to strategize instead of managing their efforts wisely.
  • 5. stuck with high overhead and costs instead of leveraging the assets of other companies, including the competition.
  • 6. stuck with doing more of what doesn't work instead of innovating and trying new approaches.
  • 7. stuck by getting marginalized and commoditized in the marketplace instead of becoming distinctive in their fields.
  • 8. stuck with antiquated, mediocre marketing instead of using what works today.
  • 9. stuck trying to do everything themselves instead of leveraging the talents of other individuals and organizations.

    Whether businesses are afflicted by one, two, or all nine of these sticking points listed above, the result is the same: the owners, executives, or entrepreneurs are not achieving all of the growth, success, and prosperity they deserve. Unlocking that true potential is the impetus for The Sticking Point Solution.

      "Bad News.."

      For your competition that is! Jay lays out a massive game changing plan that had me fizzing to get to work and start implementing his strategies.
      After just a few months a number of his recommendations have delivered new sales to our business. Most importantly I know that these sales will not be isolated, but ongoing as his ideas are 'bolt on' profit generators.

      "I just can't continue"

      I've listened to some great audio books thanks to the wonderful service that Audible offers. I was hoping that this audiobook would continue that string of quality "reads". Unfortunately, it hasn't. When you are 2 chapters into a book and the content is still speaking to and selling you (IN ACTUAL TEXT) on the value the book will provide, you start to wonder if it ever will.

      I'm going to try to continue listening to the book because it would be a shame to give up on it after just over 90 minutes. However, so far, it has been nothing but a sales pitch for the value to be rendered "later" and business generalities that provide very little in specific actionable recommendations. If my evaluation of the audiobook were to change, I will back to revise this review. If it doesn't, you'll know from my silence.

      "Worst I've Listened To"

      The other reviews led me astray to waste one of credits on this.
      I got nothing out of this at all. Anything that could be called advice was very basic common sense that I would expect anyone in business to know. The majority of the so called advice followed the lines of telling the listener to figure out your problems and fix them.
      As far as action items; at the end of a chapter he says figure out what you want to change in your business and change it now.
      It goes on and on listing all the great things you'll do and how much better your business will be over your competitors but I found myself constantly saying 'be quiet all ready and get to the how instead of telling me I'll be able to do this and I'll do that' but was never satisfied.
      In my oppinion this book is just a money grab by the author, full of hype and worthless fluff. I feel totally ripped off and didn't like listening at all.

      "The best business book I read!"

      Jay Abraham's very analytic methodical way based on years of practical experience brought me some really great insight and immediate tools to use.
      Very practical, based on hard facts, tons of case studies.
      I heard it at least five times beginning to end, and I am sure I will come back to it.

      "Very good audio book!"

      Jay Abraham knows what he's talking about. This is a great book with many new ideas for business and he is an excellent narrator.

      "It's all in the detail and Jay doesn't skimp."
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      Yes I would. I've read, watched and listened to countless business programs and always struggle with the same frustration... a distinct lack of detail. I've been exposed to most of the principles in this audiobook time and time again but never have I experienced them, apart from in person, in such detail. And Jays style makes it easy to follow and a very enjoyable listen.


      If you’ve listened to books by Jay Abraham before, how does this one compare?

      First book. Watched a few of his video's.


      Which character – as performed by Jay Abraham – was your favourite?

      N/A


      Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

      Motivated...


      Any additional comments?

      Give it a listen. As I said before... you'll probably know most of the subject matter but this audiobook will help fill in the gaps. And if you haven't heard them before. You're in for a treat. As long as you stay open minded.
