Publisher's Summary

How to start a business from home in only 60 minutes a day

Over 543,000 new businesses are started every month. Most fail. Many never get a paying customer. This book gives you a proven system on how to start a business online in just one hour a day and get your first paying customers in one month (or less).

The secret is ”agile entrepreneurship” - the new way to entrepreneurial success. In the tech industry, the agile approach made possible the Airbnbs, Instagrams, and Ubers we can’t imagine living without. If agile software founders can build companies worth billions in a garage, imagine what agile entrepreneurship can do for you!

This book shows you how to:

  • Sort through good ideas on how to start a business to find the best one for you
  • Start an online business - even if you don’t know how to get customers online
  • Discover your profitable strengths (no other business idea books tell you this)
  • Stop wasting time online and start getting customers
  • Use a proven idea validation tool so you know what people will buy
  • Adopt the entrepreneurship mindset so prospects take you seriously
  • Market your business like a growth hacker - even if you hate marketing
  • Turn chance conversations into instant sales without feeling salesy
  • Learn how to get customers to buy without feeling awkward
  • Start a business online and find your target buyers in one month

All of the above and more in just one hour a day for one month. Whether you’re an experienced entrepreneur, an aspiring solopreneur, or you just want to make extra money on the side, The 60 Minute Startup gives you proven action steps to start your business today, get paying customers this month, and reap the rewards of business ownership for life.

Great book

I like this book because it makes you go fast and not worry about perfection. in 2020 speed is everything because, by the time you perfect your next project, it may be obsolete. This book gave me some good important business info that I had been missing. I really like the definitive easy structure. I will report back when I have finished completing the assignments. Of course, certain days will take some hours and other days less.

The narration of the intro sounds amateur, but it is fine after that.

EFFECTIVE TIPS ON STARTING YOUR OWN BUSINESS

IF YOU WANT TO START YOUR OWN BUSINESS, THIS IS THE AUDIOBOOK YOU NEED!
The author gives effective tips on how daily routines need to be done to launch the startup in a fast way. Also, I loved how he helps to focus on "paying customers", techniques that only a "Real Entrepreneur" can give, so this established immediately the authority figure of Ramesh Dontha and his perfect knowledge on this field!

Surely I'm going to subscribe to his website to get more tips, even if the audiobook is complete in every aspect I suppose that I can get more from him, Highly Recommended for all those Entrepreneurs who decide to start a New Business in the right way!

Satisfaction Level: A+ / Motivation Level: 100+

As an owner of BOTH the physical and digital version of the book I am going to tell you why there are distinct advantages in both versions:

HARDCOVER:
The physical book is good for using as a workbook in which you can earmark and turn from page-to-page as you proceed on your 30 day journey to build a lean, agile startup and get paid quickly. The author's knowledge and experience in building sustainable businesses using the same 'Agile Methodology' that built the Ubers, Instagrams, and Airbnbs of the world is apparent with each word of guidance provided in the book.

Essentially, by the time you're done with the book it should look like your personal notes you took in that college business class.The objective is to get personal and make the process your own.

AUDIO:
The audio book is great for absorbing the information in a more cerebral way. Many of us respond differently to hearing information spoken to us than we do when we read it silently or with the voice in our head. I honestly thought I heard information in the audiobook that wasn't in the hardcover. When I went back to the physical book I found it was indeed there and possibly something my mind discarded or didn't place emphasis on while I was reading. Perhaps I even skipped a line while reading.

One thing I know is that the narrator reads at the perfect pace to absorb the information efficiently. Now eventually you may want to play it at 1.5x or 2x the speed during certain portions of the book. Your listening preference will vary but your enjoyment and appreciation of the value the author has provided will remain at a level that leaves you excited and motivated to build your new startup for 2020.

IMPORTANT:
When you purchase the book you must also remember to register your purchase on The60MinuteStartup.com so you can gain access to the business and sales templates the book references as well.

Be accountable, be agile, and be prosperous!

Informative compendium of resources

I would recommend this book to those that 1. already know what they want to start a business on or 2. want to learn (are curious about) how to start up a business.
Pros:
The book offers a good progress plan on how to get started on your business online, once you know what customers want/need.
Then the book proceeds to explain different ways to attract customers; and what not to do.
It gives you some activity to do everyday, and tells you to finish the next day what you couldn't do on the day of the assignment.
It provided a good insight on how to start up a business online, and what pros (have-to) do in order to succeed. It also provides some advice on who to contact.
This book contains a compendium of materials on how to start up your own business. It has done all the research for you, and this is one of the main reasons
Register to the Members-Only area to download and access materials related tot he book.
Cons:
Extremely slow; I had to play it at 2x the speed.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Buy the book, Skip the audio

The information seems worthwhile and the book information is really intended to be read on paper (vs heard) so that you can use the checklists etc and follow along easily.

Regarding the narration- it is very low quality, perhaps the lowest quality narration I’ve found in any audible product.

The quality of the information is solid, just don’t bother with the audiobook.
