A Must Listen

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this book for all entrepreneurs, and by that I mean anyone “who chooses to live life as his or her true self.” Reading it will help you avoid neglecting yourself as you face down the stress and consternation that is a part of all of our daily lives.

Nick’s thoughtful and well written book is a beautiful story of personal growth and discovery. But more than that it is the first work I’ve come across that focuses on the well-being of entrepreneurs themselves. Nick truly cares for the mind, body and soul of individuals undertaking the journey to live lives that they control themselves. We too often overlook our mental, physical and spiritual health, ultimately to the detriment of ourselves and our ventures. This book is a heartfelt reminder to care for ourselves as individuals, and that in so doing we can achieve any worthy goal we put our minds to.

Inspiring - To the Point

Would you listen to Entrepreneurship Lifestyle again? Why?

Yes, while it's short, it's packed with good information. This is one I'll listen to multiple times, and cycle back next year too.

Easy listening and thoughtful

ReflectiveRealRelatable

What about Donny Baarns’s performance did you like?

Easy to listen to and understand

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

no, actually I needed to pause and reflect on what was stated and bring up my own ideas and relate to how what was being read meant to me personally

Any additional comments?

This is a book I listened to in my car not once but multiple times. I can keep coming back to it to motivate me, to be positive in my choices, and take a leap of faith.

Excellent resources for all entrepreneurs!

If you could sum up Entrepreneurship Lifestyle in three words, what would they be?

Inspirational, Thoughtful, Actionable!

What other book might you compare Entrepreneurship Lifestyle to and why?

The Millionaire Fastlane by MJ DeMarco. Both books offer thoughtful and practical advice for cultivating entrepreneurship as a positive lifestyle, and process that can be learned and practiced.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite part is when Nick gives an alternative definition of entrepreneurship as a situation when a person who chooses to live life as his or her true self. This way of looking at entrepreneurship might be seen as an over-simplification, but has indeed reduced entrepreneurship to its essential qualities of bringing out an entrepreneur's life purpose and creative potentials.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I am particularly inspired when Nick mentions the life and work of Earl Nightingale in various parts of the book, and reminds us "success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal".

Any additional comments?

Nick's work on Entrepreneurship Lifestyle offers excellent insights and resources which are not easy to come by for today's entrepreneurs. It contains important reminders of what entrepreneurship is all about, in its essence. I feel truly inspired when he reminds us that an entrepreneur is not just someone who builds a business, but rather is a person who chooses to live life as his or her true self. Many books on similar topics fail to take readers back to this very basic - in that when you fix yourself, your inner entrepreneurial strength will be translated into outer accomplishments.

Nick offers clear and actionable steps that help us get our mind clear, get inspired, and live a purposeful life (i.e. our true self). It points you to some of the best resources that helps you accomplish that. Great book!

Great listen while traveling!

If you could sum up Entrepreneurship Lifestyle in three words, what would they be?

Motivational, thought-provoking, valuable

What did you like best about this story?

The author's personal experiences really resonated with me.

Which character – as performed by Donny Baarns – was your favorite?

The personal narration, 1st person point of view, was really brought to life by the narrator Donny Baarns, and really captured the author's voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes - it was perfect for a long car ride.

Any additional comments?

Good for family to listen to.. Appropriate for all ages. Looking forward to the next audio book by Cicerchi and Baarns

Very Unoriginal

What disappointed you about Entrepreneurship Lifestyle?

Meditate, Exercise, Think Positively. That is the entire book. It's unbelievable that Mr. Cicerchi would have the arrogance to think that these extremely widely written about topics are worthy of being rehashed by an amateur with nothing new to add to the thousands of books already written on these topics. It's even more frustrating that Audible would stock such a book and yet not many others that are so much more worthy. Note that Audible has almost nothing on social justice topics, but hundreds of these self help books like this that merely rehash the most obvious wisdom of the ages.

Would you ever listen to anything by Nick Cicerchi again?

No.

Any additional comments?

Audible is carrying a disappointing array of novice authors with absolutely nothing original or interesting to say.

The Tao of Integrated Entrepreneurship

The author doesn't introduce anything earthshaking but he goes over the basics for how to live an entrepreneurial life with sanity. My version of the author's five steps are:

1. Seek Inspiration
2. Become an inspiration
3. Work on yourself (talents)
4. Work on your body/mind
5. Work on your business

Important listen for someone on the verge of burnout or not living an integrated live.

Great Quick-listen

The best kinds of books in this genre are the ones that make you feel like you are the target person; that the topic applies directly to you. I think Nick Cicerchi does a terrific job of balancing sourced information and his own take on the matter through relatable experience.

"Entrepreneurship" Comes Alive!

Where does Entrepreneurship Lifestyle rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is my first.

What other book might you compare Entrepreneurship Lifestyle to and why?

None

Have you listened to any of Donny Baarns’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

None

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

It inspired me and the audio version makes the impact of Cicerchi's insight come alive. You can't help being moved in the direction of your dreams.

Any additional comments?
