If you have the fire in you, this book will help you turn it into a very rewarding way of life.
As a fun exercise I have identified taking £100 and buying items and reselling to see how quickly I can double my money. After all interest on accounts is so insulting that counting your money and ironing it are more satisfying than the paltry returns from a bank. To make things even more of a challenge rather than just taking the money from an account I will sell existing surplus items to get the ball rolling.Read more ›
The book outlines using case studies different steps you can and often should take when developing a start-up. I like the fact that Chris uses multiple different business types and isn't just writing from his own experience - although we benefit from that also. He doesn't claim the book is always right all the time for every business. But that is what I like about it. It is very prescriptive without saying that the same prescription will cure all ills. In fact the book shows many cases that the same approach went different ways.
One of my favourite concepts is the Hollywood launch. This is also outlined in another great start-up book ReWork: Change the Way You Work Forever. It gives a no nonsense achieveable way to launch a product or service step by changeable step.
Mostly the reason to buy this book is it shows you can do it too. And not in a cheesy over the top love fest kind of way. But in a practical get your hands dirty and don't risk having to pawn the kids kind of way.
So if you are even tempted to start something for your self this is a good book to have on the shelf. Preferably take it down and read as well though!
Blogging, writing, podcasting, property investing, performing, or selling anything tangible requires work work & more work to make it work.
Worth a read but some ideas probably a bit outdated now.
As other readers have mentioned, it's long on fairly abstract and hand-wavy tales while being quite short on detail. It reads more like a motivational speech than a business book, which to be fair is maybe the intent. And much of the content centres around one business idea; that of selling information online. Which is exactly what the author's doing with the book, ironically enough. As I was reading it I couldn't shake the feeling that the small business getting the most benefit from my purchase was the author's own.
