Horribly Misleading unless you are an MLM person

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

People selling Mary Kay, Amway, or Herbalife.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Something more geared to who I want to be as an entrepreneur; something more like Jen Sincero or Sarah Knight.

What didn’t you like about Romi Neustadt’s performance?

I found her tone to be a little snotty, and I just didn't connect with her message. I felt her book was not for me whatsoever.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Hugely disappointed, especially given all the blogs that feature this title as "Books Every Girl Boss Must Read.", etc etc.

Misleading

I read the description before buying this book, but it doesn’t say that this is a book to help you succeed in MLM businesses like Mary Kay and Herbalife. I wanted a straightforward “how to succeed” in business book but this was not it. This is about convincing people to be on you “team”...not what I wanted.

It's desinged as a marketing network tool.

this is not really a general business related book as it focuses on building a successful marketing network business. it's fine if that's what you're looking but it's not for me. I fast forwarded most chapters as I really couldn't relate to her teaching. I'm sure some people will benefit from it but I wished I would've known that before I used my audible credit.

Great advice, a lot of swearing.

Loved the book for the advice, but I couldn't listen to it around the children with the swearing.

LOVE THIS BOOK

If you could sum up Get Over Your Damn Self in three words, what would they be?

It doesn't matter if you are involved in network marketing, or even if you are thinking about it. This book is REALLY about authenticity and achievement. I love that it is told in such an entertaining and honest way. This is one I will be listening to over and over. JUST LOVE IT.

A Must for Work from Homers!!!

If you could sum up Get Over Your Damn Self in three words, what would they be?

Get Over Yourself!!!! It's really all about that.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Since there are no characters, I would say just listening Ms. Neustadt's experiences in business & in network marketing were entertaining & helpful.

Which character – as performed by Romi Neustadt – was your favorite?

She was just the best!! She is funny, blunt & really breaks down working a home bases/network marketing business.

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

I loved it. It did make me laugh. I also found it very useful!! She has great tips & advice!! I have my own network marketing business. This book is just a must for anyone in the biz.

Any additional comments?

This is an essential for anyone with a home business or in network marketing. I highly recommend this book!!!

Good content with bad language

I missed in the description that this was for network marketers but fortunately that was okay. I also knew from the title that would be plenty of bad language, but I grew weary of it and found it unnecessary, especially the ‘f’ word. But I picked up some interesting ideas.

Build a Bridge and Then Cross Over it

Would you listen to Get Over Your Damn Self again? Why?

Romi Neustadt in a no nonsense manner that only she can deliver; gives you the keys to running a successful business no matter what industry you are in. She doesn't let you subscribe to the fact that because you are a mother, wife, daughter, etc. you can't have the life you want. She makes it clear that YOU are responsible for your life and the sooner that you build a bridge and cross over to the other side and stop waiting for someone else to rescue you, help you,and fix you, the better off you will be and the sooner your life can move forward and you can have all that you think, desire.and want. YOU must choose it and YOU must put in the work to get it.

An inspiring book

This book lays out exactly what you can do and say to be an awesome MLM leader. She talks about work/life balance and gives specific and helpful suggestions. Her section on fear is powerful. I appreciate what she suggests to say to others who don’t support you and what to say to your family to help them support you.
I highly recommend this book!

Best for direct sales

The author’s experience is in direct sales, which isn’t an area of entrepreneurialism I’m interested in pursuing. This book would probably be really helpful to someone in a direct sales business.

Woo woo bullcrap

This is an awful book. It's all just feelings and airy thoughts with little to no substance. I can't believe I listened as long as I did. Lots of really fake and manipulative speak, and it's typical affair from the kind of people who call themselves "motivational speakers". Save your time and pay attention to people who give you useful information, not those who are writing a book just to have the tagline "author" on their LinkedIn profile.

Nothing new or original

Did not connect at all to the author or the way she delivers her relatively bland message - had to throw the towel in and stop listening when I realised I wasn’t going to benefit even a little from the mainstream ‘no-BS blueprint’ she shares.

Not suitable for those already in business

A book suitable for those finding their feet, but found it tedious to listen to as an experienced business owner, it doesn't provide anything extra than basic business skills and common obstacles. Running a business is general is life changing.

Invaluable for anyone in MLM or marketing

This book is THE BEST thing I've listened to for my business. Romi is no nonsense, common sense and no BS. She tells it how it is, and fully explains WHY she does what she does. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

I got over my dam self alright!!

This was absolutely the best read ever!!! Any and every entrepreneur/network marketer MUST to listen to this!!

Romi shares hers and others successes, what to’s & what not to’s also - and is just so filled with knowledge and experience I’m in awe! She is literally so down to earth and so incredibly relatable - it’s as if it is ‘you’ ‘personally’ she is talking about!

Can’t wait to listen again and hopefully pick up stuff I may’ve missed first time!!!

Valuable, practical, brutally honest, LOVED IT!!!

Romi, I cannot tell you how valuable this book has been for me! I have been building my business for 3 years and have felt really lost and stuck recently. I have always known in my heart though that this business is the right thing for me and my family. And, when I found this book in my suggested reading section in Audible I thought that was a pretty clear sign to keep going. My intention for reading this book was to see if it would reignite that fire and it certainly did! This book has provided me with a really clear plan of where I'm going now and how I can help so many others. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I wish you every bit of love, happiness, health and success in your life x
