Publisher's Summary

Get out of your own way, and bring your ideas to life!

Exactly Where to Start is a playbook for everyone with a great idea, everyone with a goal in mind, and everyone with a specific destination but no journey. We’ve been told all our lives that “good things come to those who wait” - but that’s a myth. Good things come to those who do. Too often, we get stuck in the “getting ready” stage: research, analysis, brainstorming, and more research; we feel like we need to know everything there is to know about what we want to do before we ever take the first steps. Meanwhile, the people who actually go out and do the thing are taking risks, learning lessons, and making strides toward their goals every single day. Isn’t it time you joined them?

This book coaches you through the journey with precise, actionable steps that help you take that all-important first leap and keep the momentum going. Discard the distractions, break through the overwhelm, and get going for real with this real-world blueprint for turning your vision into reality. Snap yourself out of “analysis paralysis”. Stop thinking you need to know everything before you even begin. Make those big decisions and focus in on your goals. Chart your journey’s path, and get up and get started today.

Many of us have fallen into a trap: We no longer believe that “anything is possible”, yet we are surrounded by proof that everything is possible! But we are distracted, harried, overwhelmed, and maybe a little intimidated. Our dreams remain forever in limbo, and we may go to our graves before we venture beyond the “planning stage”. Don’t let that happen - don’t you deserve to realize your goals? Exactly Where to Start gives you the kick in the pants and the practical plan you need to stand up, step up, and make it happen.

Quick listen with some easy actionable steps

This is well worth a listen as its only an hour and a half and Phil has some great questions to ask yourself that help move out of the planning and into the action phase.

Very useful

Love the book. I understand that you want to keep the book action oriented. However I would love to see more examples. Examples helps us visualize how to put your advice into action for ourselves. It’s a great companion to your first book, exactly what to say. Thx.

Literally tells you exactly where to start

I love that there are small, completely doable action steps at the end of each chapter! It’s short, to the point, full of real info without all the frills and clichés you hear everywhere else.

Start Here —> 10 steps towards your next success

1. I’ve spent the last year in a self education process. Trying to learn as much as I can before I start. PROCRASTINATING!

2. I bet you’re a bit like me, like to check out a handful of reviews before adding a book to my cart before spending some money.

3. Just Effing Do It! (JEDI) click the button, spend money, a credit, or if you want search for me on Linked In and message me and I’ll send you this as your first Audible Audiobook for free (subject to Audible’s standard conditions etc)

4. A Short , to the point, quick summary to get that idea you already have into motion from a dream into reality.

5. Easy to follow and simple steps. I’m looking forward to achieving my goals a little quicker than I did last year and using my self education rather than just growing it without using it.

6. Trust me- it’s a great place to Start.

7. Have an amazing 2019. You deserve it.

8-10 Ps I don’t know why you are still reading this review. If so please see “click buy now” as per step 3 JEDI.

Simple and succinct

This is a very practical book which is easily relatable and logical. Likely contains a lot of action points people “forget” to take or don’t put value on. However I for one am going to action all 10 actions because I am a JEDI
