So you want to narrate. Great,. Let me be the first to congratulate you. It's about time. If you've been thinking about this for a long time, I don't know what took you so long. This is not as hard as people say. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme, and it does require some work on your part. I want to show you how you can begin to be a great narrator, make a lot of sales, supplement your income, and live a life with residual income forever.

This book didn’t go in depth about how ACX works and didn’t offer as many tips as I would have hoped for. I already knew this information but was hoping to hear something more thorough.

This book is great for those that haven’t researched narration yet.

  • How to Write a Script With Dialogue that Doesn't Suck (ScriptBully Book Series)

Want to know how to write a script that people will remember, and can catch the attention of producers and other above-the-line talent? (Don't worry about agents; they don't want to talk to you). Nail your dialogue. Really. Now I know you've heard all the maxims: Film is a Visual Medium; You Can Either Write Dialogue or You Can't. And they both sound very logical. And esteemed writers, such as David Mamet, have been preaching them for years. But, in my not so humble opinion, they're both total bullcrap.

At least 80% of it I already knew. But the 20% that I didn't know seems like gold. This is more about publishing than actually writing and narrating. Could have gone more in depth.

This book has great info. I just felt that this book was written for non blacks to understand black people. I think it was too general and didn't touch on why we think the way we think and how to overcome that. And throwing in the few black people that became successful, although idyllic, doesn't really compare to the masses that have not and remain in a stupor. I feel almost no connection to a book that is marketed to people like me. I even felt slightly offended.

I will continue to listen repeatedly but I don't think my opinion will change much.

This story has great information. But I often found that the mirror writer has a slight condescending tone which completely turned me off. It took me longer than I expected to get through the book because of that. Otherwise it's a great book. I would like to see books for families.

All of us have what it takes to make it in today's competitive and changing world. You may have doubted your ability to get the job done in the past, but something else may have been getting in the way of your success. The key to ultimate achievement has very little to do with your education or skill level. The secret to accomplishing great things is simple: Find and pursue the kind of work you are meant to do - your "purpose."

Breaking down the requirements chronologically (i.e. the first day, first quarter, first year), the audiobook sets forth all the tax and corporate and legal matters new business owners must comply with.
