A business parable about how to create a start-up that won't trap you when you want to sell it. According to John Warrillow, the number one mistake entrepreneurs make is to build a business that relies too heavily on them. Thus, when the time comes to sell, buyers aren't confident that the company-even if it's profitable-can stand on its own. To illustrate this, Warrillow introduces us to a fictional small business owner named Alex who is struggling to sell his advertising agency.

The story format is very smart. It teaches you the list you will take away in a 3 prone approach.

The Narrative: 3-4 hours
John's Experience: ~1 hour
Ted's Tips: ~5 min

It lets you connect "the list" to different scaffolding from the first two portions so it is easier for me to recall the list and more importantly recognize when they are present.

The price was a steal but in the back of my head I thought it would overlap with Dan Coyle's work.

I was pleasently surprised! There are many great concepts in this book like chaining and performance speed chunking that I am excited to use. It contains unique information different from Dan Coyle, Josh Kauffman, and Tim Ferriss.

Good listen!

  • Stealing From God

What if your best reasons to doubt God prove that He exists? In an engaging and memorable way, Stealing From God shows how many atheistic arguments, instead of disproving God, reveal that He actually exists.

A very well structured collection of arguments and proofs for the God with intention in everything. Along with analogies, testimonies from proponets and opponents of a theistic worldview, and a chapter dedicated to Christianity, you get a clear view of what Christianity really is. The truths of God and what is generally done to dismiss the arguments are deeply covered; showing that most of the objections to God carry logical liabilities that are overlooked.
