Publisher's Summary

The American pioneering spirit still lives. Art Williams's journey to super-success began when he was a high-school football coach in a small southern town. Driven by his desire to provide a more secure life for his family and himself, he formulated his plan. From the seeds of that plan, he created an enterprise that was to become bigger than his two biggest competitors combined - in the largest industry in the world: insurance. Having achieved super-success at a level far beyond his wildest expectations, Art now devotes his time to teaching others his strategies for growing a business. In this program, he will give you his principles to help you build a championship business, a championship team... a championship money machine.

less than i expected from AL Williams

thought it would be an audio book. it is just clips from old speeches. and it even has duplicates within the same audio.

Special man

Art Williams has a powerful, simple message. Very inspirational. Shows how drive and grit are worth more than pedigree.

If you need a Kick in the Pants to Get up and Go

Would you consider the audio edition of How to Beat Talent, Brains, and Education to be better than the print version?

Did not read print version

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Not as repetitive in some areas. I know this was edited from several speeches and it was OK but could have been "tighter" editing.

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

This is the first that I've listened to

One of the Most Inspiring Books – Ever!

I loved this book. In this book, Art Williams places a spot light on the internal dialog we commonly experience that holds us back from achieving success. He points out that it’s natural to feel fear and worry, no matter how much wealth, success, or health we have. To create success you never need to be the smartest, prettiest, fastest, or possess money. You can come from the worst, poorest beginnings or from the lowest point in your life can still make the decision to turn your life around to generate success. Mindset and focus on the goals are key. Art also outlines the steps he lives by and used to build AL Williams.

Another one of Art’s big keys is he built and multiplied leaders. These leaders were able to build and multiplied more successful leaders. As a side note, although Art sold Al Williams in the late 1980’s, those original leaders who worked build Al Williams, today serve as the catalyst to fuel and mold Primerica into one of the most amazing entrepreneurial organizations available.
