A few months ago I received this email from a client:
”Hi Boomy. I have not made much headway with my business idea. I am too afraid to not make money... I am teaching right now. I hate it, but it's better than no job.”
Then it suddenly hit me that the reason why some of my clients and others with good business ideas refuse to start their own business is due to some kind of fear that has incapacitated them!
It was like having an “Aha!” moment. I realised the cause of some people continually coming to the same course and asking the same questions yet moving no further is the fear of starting.
A little bit of online research showed that thousands of people are in this category. What is shocking is that I have heard so many awesome business ideas that I know would work well if the entrepreneur were committed to the venture. Yet such ideas remain what it is; an idea until someone has a similar thought from another place, another time and then put it to work.
Remember, "Cemeteries are full of unfulfilled dreams... countless echoes of 'could have' and 'should have'… countless books unwritten… countless songs unsung... I want to live my life in such a way that when my body is laid to rest, it will be a well needed rest from a life well lived, a song well sung, a book well written, opportunities well explored, and a love well expressed." (Steve Maraboli)
Hence the reason I created this audiobook - to help those who have been incapacitated by fear, unbelief, and lack of forthright action. My goal is fourfold: To make you understand that the thoughts of failure that go through your mind can be channelled into the springboard that enables success.

what a dopey book. but there was one jewel. ray kroc started mcdonalds when 52. so maybe worth buying.
This book explains fear from a logical standpoint and is clear on how to take action steps to overcome it.
My golden nuggets:
-take calculated risks because risk taking is what will help you grow and live a fulfilled life.
- get rid of negative people in your life.
-starting a business is a marathon not a sprint. One company's failure is not the end of the road.
