some pretty good ideas...great presentation..

Visionary Business is a fable of a young man who's just started a business and found "Yoda-like" mentor/investor who guides him along the start-up path with sound advice on creating a business that means something. There's a lot of good, sound business advice here and it's presented story form, based on a medley of real people and events. The reader is good, too! Check it out!

This is an excellent resource to inspire and remotivate any entrepreneur. Filled with precious "ah-hah" moments to give you clarity of purpose and put you back on track. I highly recommend this book for business owners who are committed to ethical business and making a difference.

Essential Guide, Beautifully and Skillfully Written!

Marc Allen has outdone himself with this step-by-step guide to creating your own successful business. He leaves no stone unturned from the material nitty-gritty details to the magical secrets of the Spiritual realm as he (and mentor Bernie) applies to their own lives and Visionary Business. Highly recommend this book as a must-read before starting on the entrepreneurial path!

Very bad sound quality and narration

The content of the book is not as much informative as it is entertaining and perhaps a bit inspiring. However there is a lack of concrete information if you are seriously looking to startup a business.

not a lot new here

especially if you have any grounding in metaphysics. Also, the narrator has a slight speech impediment which was irritating to me.

Emyth Revisited

A synopsis of Emyth, with metaphysics thrown in for good measure. Suggest sticking to the Gerber original.
