Aug 25, Taylor Church rated it really liked it. This book was referred to me by a real scholar of a man, a man's man, a man that climbs mountains and sleeps in tents and grows beards.
I am honestly not super interested in business. There is far too much I don't understand, and I really just want to write books and have people download them and tell me how wonderful and life changing my words were. But I realize like anything, the selling and marketing of books is a business.
So, I was able to read this book with that in mind, the notion that I cou This book was referred to me by a real scholar of a man, a man's man, a man that climbs mountains and sleeps in tents and grows beards. So, I was able to read this book with that in mind, the notion that I could greatly improve the business model I currently have for distributing my little babies I publish.
My favorite part about the book is probably the emphasis on goals and organization. So many things in life we already know, but sometimes we just need to hear it or read it in a new way. May 03, J. Penn rated it really liked it Shelves: Mostly for the beginner entrepreneur, but with some good tips.
A focus on being weird but also running a business. Action over just talking. Business models over hobbies. Good chapter on creating systems and processes, which authors often struggle with!
Best quote. Dec 16, Joe Lalonde rated it it was amazing Shelves: Loved the book. Definitely got me thinking about entrepreneurship and taking more action in what I'm doing. Oct 05, Tania rated it it was amazing. Chris Brogan brings to the masses the idea that it is ok not to fit in, and indeed to succeed you must stand out. Written for someone on the brink of wanting to do something great, but not being sure if that great thing is starting their own business, the author shares the joys and pitfalls of entrepreneurship, and many of the basic do's and don'ts for making a run of it.
I most appreciated that there "This entire book is worthless, if you don't take action. I most appreciated that there are concepts in this book that work even if your ultimate goal is not "start a million dollar company. Readers who are serious about wanting to start up their own venture but have not the first clue how to do it would do well to read this book.
People who have tried and failed at business would do well to read this book. And even people like myself, who don't necessarily hunger after being an actual business owner but would like to own their own future would do well to read this book. It's a quick read, well organized, with simple terms and interesting anecdotes to illustrate the author's points.
It's a lot of common sense served with a healthy dash of reality, written by someone who follows his own advice. This book doesn't give people permission to ignore all the rules - indeed, the author points out rules that it is important to follow. For example, have a plan. Make a framework and follow it.
He also encourages the reader to reevaluate plans and framework regularly and if it's not working, find another way. The book takes responsibility for the power it can have over people, for example not sugarcoating the difficulties that we'll all run into at some point no matter how we approach business, and life. He uses some powerful examples, sharing the stories of Tony Hawke and Kate White, among others.
He even acknowledges how much harder it is for women in a large corporate setting to implement his principles than it is for men.
He presents some freeing concepts, and I found some actions in this book that I'm willing to take and try out, we shall see where it leads me.
Jul 08, Rowan rated it did not like it. I closed it for good when he dropped a breathtakingly sexist bomb about how there haven't been any major "female freaks" - or by his explicit definition, women who have been majorly influential and innovative in an important field - because it's just too hard for women to do so.
What patronizing, offensive garbage, packaged as though he's an authority on the subject. I don't have anything polite to say in response to that if I want this review to stay up. Suffice it to say that I am furious. I should have put the book down early on when Brogan recommended that would-be entrepreneurs get into shape by drinking an ounce of water per pound of body weight per day.
Sep 24, Erin rated it it was amazing. As a new business owner who had been working full time while building my business I found this book to be very helpful. I plan to implement a lot in the book, in hopes that it will help me to become successful. Jul 04, Kelli rated it it was amazing.
I really enjoyed this book. It's full of actionable advice which is exactly what I hope for when I download a book for business. I've got a book full of marked pages so now it's time to take action. May 07, Lexane rated it really liked it. More actionable steps than in most books of this kind, which I appreciate. Jul 11, Joy Tsakanikas rated it it was amazing.

Embrace your inner Geek: Oct 13, Sasha rated it did not like it Shelves: Did you know that even if you have dreadlocks, and you love rainbow brite, and you decorate your apartment with dried up lizards from Chinatown, you may still start a business and succeed? Well if you already knew that, go get another business book, because beyond making that point this one is completely generic and not very good as a generic business book--each subject is short, flippant, and not very informative.

The common problem of trying to cover everything and thus not addressing any individual subject in a truly useful way.
If you don't know that and would love to read more about it, you still won't get much out of this book, because he really doesn't spend much time on the above subject before he moves on to the generic stuff. If you have never read a business book before, you might find this a good enough place to start.
May 06, Joe rated it liked it. Like other authors in this genre Seth Godin, Chris Guillebeau, etc Chris Brogan gives you many reasons why you should embrace your inner geek, be an entrepreneur, and ditch the corporate world. It's a feel good book for people that feel out of place in their current work situation and looking for confidence to strike off on their own. In that, the book succeeds. However, I'm left feeling a bit underwhelmed and thinking that other authors have done a better job offering more in the way of How-T Like other authors in this genre Seth Godin, Chris Guillebeau, etc Chris Brogan gives you many reasons why you should embrace your inner geek, be an entrepreneur, and ditch the corporate world.
However, I'm left feeling a bit underwhelmed and thinking that other authors have done a better job offering more in the way of How-To. It's a good book if you need a cheerleader encouraging you to take the next step.
It was enjoyable enough for me to start following him on twitter and check out some of his other works.
Feb 23, April O'Leary rated it it was amazing Shelves: Chris is a master when it comes to entrepreneurship. Being self-employed and a having a lot of online business clout and experience he offers advice for the new business person or those of us who want a slight shift in approach on how to take your unique talents and roll them into a thriving business, online or offline.
Chris is the real deal and I suggest you also sign up for his newsletter that comes out every Sunday. We'll worth the read!
Sign Up for Chris' Newsletter. Jul 31, Christina marked it as did-not-finish Shelves: DNF REVIEW I was really excited to read this book because the concept sounded totally my thing — it's a "how to" for entrepreneurs who want to do things in their own way. I thought this short book would be a quick yet informative read. Unfortunately, it was slow and difficult to get into due to the plethora of headings every few paragraphs.
There were typos beginning on page two, and the book felt very unedited overall. It advices newcomers in the business world how to tackle the reality of the corporate world, by taking all the necessary steps to succeed.
First and foremost, it suggests them that success begins with its definition. It also means eliminating all distractions whatsoever.
Entrepreneurs are what they are because, in addition to a great idea and a good business plan , they also have the courage to risk. Once again, the Internet is here to help you.
A single successful RTM campaign can do wonders. Dear Misfits, I Need You. The Future. Business Is About Belonging 3. Business is Also About Plans. They are unable to fit anywhere. Consequently, even if they ever had it, in time they lose their interest to and live an isolated life.
However, their heads are filled with great ideas the beauty of the future world depends upon. In fact, the world has been shaped by non-conformists. The more difficult part is that their ideas need to be heard.
Because, business is about belonging.
