You will absolutely love this book. If you are thinking of starting your very own business, or if you have started and are feeling a bit stuck, then check out the tips. For me the book came at a time when I absolutely needed a boost – we were kind of out of the recession but still feeling the aftermath. I’ve picked out my top 11 tips but there are so many more. For example:
#1 If you are not prepared to see success through to the end, don’t begin it
#2 If you don’t believe in your products and services, don’t even begin
#5 Look after your cash-flow
#8 Failure is inevitable as an entrepreneur, learn from it and turn it into a positive
#13 Risk is essential but it must be calculated
#15 To be successful you must first feel uncomfortable
#20 Build a balanced team
#22 Keep focused exclusively on your goal. Don’t get distracted
#28 Don’t procrastinate – take action
#34 Leverage, leverage, leverage
#36 Know exactly how you are going to make your first million
