With the number of books I have it's difficult to find ones with new business & sales ideas. However, this book has brought several new concepts and strategies to my attention. Although I think it could've been condensed some the author presents the material in an intriguing fashion so it's not grilling to get through. I do think an individual must be very careful not to incorrectly present these concepts and appear arrogant & the author does make several warnings considering that scenario. I'll probably listen to it at least one more time just to help me grasp what the author has presented.

This book was grueling to endure, started skipping chapters than just said screw it and gave up on it the thing. He devoted an entire chapter to trying to get the reader to have their friends by his book. For me nothing new or innovative here, just common sense.

This is one of the first times I've actually heard an author express how my wife and I have approached every business venture we've been in. None of this holistic you must have a balance dialogue. Just go out it 110% headstrong and damn the torpedoes. Someone with thin skin may not like what this book has to say but for true entrepreneurs thirsting for success it's just what the doctor ordered.

I'm very glad I download this book. Although it's a little bit long it's so full of good content that I did very little skipping. I believe it gave me a good foundation on why so many amateur videos do suck and what I can do to drastically improve my videos. I now understand that it's not about the camera it's about the person behind the camera and their approach to filming and editing.

Video marketing sounds scary. I know, I used to be terrified of it. I used to think, "Oh God, the gear is so expensive, and I have to learn how to become a video editor, and I hate to be on camera, and when I upload videos to YouTube unstable, sociopaths will leave nasty comments that will sabotage my business." But then the recession came, and I quickly realized: video marketing represents the fastest, cheapest, most effective way to get tons of traffic to your website, boost your email list and increase your brand exposure.

This first book impressed me so much that I downloaded the other two books in the series and ordered the hardcopy versions from Amazon to use as study guides. It gets pretty deep and I can tell will require focused study to get a grip on but the content is laid out well which of course helps out quite a bit.
