Publisher's Summary

To achieve unimaginable business success and financial wealth-to reach the upper echelons of entrepreneurs, where you'll find Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Sara Blakely of Spanx, Mark Pincus of Zynga, Kevin Plank of Under Armour, and many others-you have to change the way you think. In other words, you must develop the Entrepreneur Mind, a way of thinking that comes from learning the vital lessons of the best entrepreneurs.

In a praiseworthy effort to distill some of the most important lessons of entrepreneurship, Kevin D. Johnson, president of multimillion-dollar company Johnson Media Inc. and a serial entrepreneur for several years, shares the essential beliefs, characteristics, and habits of elite entrepreneurs. Through the conviction of his own personal experiences, which include a life-changing visit to Harvard Business School, and the compelling stories of modern-day business tycoons, Johnson transforms an oftentimes complex topic into a lucid and accessible one.

In this riveting book written for new and veteran entrepreneurs, Johnson identifies one hundred key lessons that every entrepreneur must learn in seven areas: Strategy, Education, People, Finance, Marketing and Sales, Leadership, and Motivation. Lessons include how to think big, who makes the best business partners, what captivates investors, when to abandon a business idea, where to avoid opening a business bank account, and why too much formal education can hinder your entrepreneurial growth.

Smart and insightful, The Entrepreneur Mind: 100 Essential Beliefs, Characteristics, and Habits of Elite Entrepreneurs is the ultimate primer on how to think like an entrepreneur.

Inspiring, Motivating & A Comprehensive Read!

What made the experience of listening to The Entrepreneur Mind the most enjoyable?

I found this book very enjoyable - the entrepreneurial business content is some of the best I have listened to due to the fact that it covers all of the main areas one needs to be aware of. Kevin provides fundamental lessons learnt over the course of his entrepreneurial journey including the power of outsourcing/automation and the importance of execution over ideas to name a few.<br/><br/>Kevin takes the listener through his impressive journey of growing multiple businesses which is extremely inspiring.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Entrepreneur Mind?

In addition to Kevin's story being very motivational, the most memorable parts of the book are the key tips intertwined with his story which can make the fundamental difference between success and failure. Some of my favourite tips include shortening your time to market to capture market share and planning your exit strategy from the beginning in addition to useful information which is often overlooked but can have substantial outcomes such as opening a business bank account with a separate provider from your personal bank!

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Get inspired and learn the actions required to become successful in business!

Any additional comments?

Overall, a truly inspiring and motivational read which has given me extremely useful information whilst being very entertaining!
