This audio book was narrated by Gerber himself He covers his life choices, doubts and victories in business He also gives input on to awaken and thrive as an entrepreneur mostly with real life examples MY GRADE B minus to B
I ve enjoyed the E myth books This one is Michael s next project and there are some great lessons and steps but honestly it s a bit unfocused Granted, it could be me and simply just not the right time for the book in my life Still finished it and glad I did I truly hope someone takes his fictional idea of Who is Manny Espinoza company and really creates it What a fantastic idea
Good book Many gems here Reading this book made me rethink the value of ideas, the value of dreaming intentional dreaming the author calls it Intentional dreaming is hard work but what choice does one have Then, I d like to know about systems thinking.
Dream bigYou will take time to digest and understand this If you are in entrepreneurial journey, you will connect this so well.
The most helpful book for those who want to take a leap to entrepreneurship.
If you read this book to completion, you should get a medal or cookie or something It was a chore Michael is full of his reviews from past books He also wrote a book that does not ring true Even his conversation with his Mom sounded insincere I wanted to like this book when I started it I wanted Michael to teach me something Instead, he tried to sell me something Sorry, I m not buying Michael spent a huge chunk of the book on his fictional business concept It is a dream Not a goal, but a dream M [...]
Gerber wrote an excellent book called The E Myth Revisited Why Most Small Businesses Don t Work and What to Do About It Very insightful Like a mix between Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance An Inquiry Into Values and Reality Check The Irreverent Guide to Outsmarting, Outmanaging, and Outmarketing Your Competition The original E Myth is excellent It sets a high bar.Unfortunately, Awakening the Entrepreneur Within doesn t add much Probably would be better off using the same time to re read [...]
April 2010 Author the E myth series, Gerber teaches Create sales not marketing Most business owners are not impressed with slick brochures advertisting but rather new sales that creates an true impact.Business development program should include Marketing, Accounting, Business Growth10 Pillars of Successful Businesses are 1 All businesses require a Vision.2 All Visions are both personal and impersonal.3 Every company is an organization.4 An organization is an organizations of systems.5 Ther is no [...]
There were some great nuggets in this book that I really got a lot from.One was the discussion about the different roles that comprise entrepreneurship These roles, from the dreamer visionary who comes up with the ideas, to the implementer who turns them into reality, an entrepreneurial endeavor requires a wide range of skills and ways of thinking A person may fill one or of those roles, but it is extremely useful to be able to distinguish which roles are a match for an inspiring entrepreneur s [...]
This was my first Michael Gerber book After seeing negative reviews about E Myth revisited and the fact that I didn t really want to own a small business anyway, I grabbed this book because I just wanted to start with Awakening the Entrepreneur within me first This book was crap Although I d never read any of his other books, the whole first half of the book seemed like recycled stories from his other books and a history of his business experience I kept reading anyway waiting for something grea [...]
In this book, Michael talks about the various fazes one goes through as a person starting a new business This starts with an awakening, to a realization, to the negative reaction, to the personal dream, to the impersonal dream, to sudden shock and the dream is born.I thought the most interesting part was Michael talking about this awakening inside of your brain of wanting to start your business, to the other side of the brain telling you that you can t do it I think this is a huge obstacle for e [...]
I didn t find it as amazing as his other works The main messages that stuck for me were a make your business about helping others and not just yourself, and b do something that nobody has done before and break new ground I was annoyed by how he talked about the Dreaming Room from the start of the book without ever concisely and clearly explaining what it is like the reader is supposed to be already familiar with it You piece it together as you go through the book, but I think he could learn a bi [...]
This is a good book It incites the would be entrepreneur or the entrepreneur who wants to re energize his business to dream big and to analyze the various roles necessary for an entrepreneurial business to be highly successful Michael Gerber has written many books on business most notably the E Myth books , but this one is focused on his new project, The Dreaming Room It s definitely not a step by step guide, but it s a must read for anyone thinking about entrepreneurship It will force you to t [...]
Sometimes timing is everything I read this book about 10 years ago, and while it was interesting it didn t pack the punch from reading it now My circumstances have changed I have experience My question is still the same What are the necessary principles in bringing an excellent startup company into being The description of the various players dreamer, thinker, storyteller, leader made so much sense this go around The book acknowledges that it does not provide a complete start to finish plan bu [...]
This was such a disappointing follow up to Gerber s E Myth books Unlike his earlier books this one left very little to sink your teeth into Just a lot of fluff about his awakening Each chapter ends with a Stop and Focus section where I d hoped to gain some practical insights.lly Nope Instead I got totally useless pep talks, The System is already there, my friend Ugh We are definitely not friends Gerber I m glad I borrowed this book from the library I would ve been upset if I d spent money on it. [...]
It started off good but then in the remaining 60% of the book I wasn t sure if he was teaching me to dream or selling me a dream I guess this is what happens when you try to milk your cash cow for everything its worth, you claim you ve suffered again from this thing you got famous talking about so you can talk about again2.5 stars
Good read very quick and pretty exciting Seemed a little fluffy to me but maybe that s because this book focused on how to figure out your business idea and I already have mine at least for now Gerber s other book, E Myth Revisited, was amazingly useful for someone who already has a business Enjoyed it over all though.
Michael E Gerber , takes readers on a journey in order to help them realize their dreams and awaken the entrepreneur within them by narrating his own experience.The books has a passive mood Users might not feel very excited or motivated with most parts of the book However it has some good lessons for entrepreneurs and any one starting or thinking to start a business A good read.
I really enjoyed this book and it brought together ideas with thoughts I have There was a portion of it that went a little too long into story telling, which kept me from giving it 5 starts Overall, I believe anyone with an entrepreneur spirit should read this book prior to jumping too far in If you ve already jumped in than it s definitely time to read it
Interesting read a bit too spiritual to my liking, but good enough to make you think that there s an entrepreneur hidden inside of you that is dying to come out, if only you listen to it Must read for anyone that every thinks about working for themselves.
This book is junk About halfway through the book, I wondered when the author s assiduous advertising would cease I then thumbed to the back of the book to look at the author s action steps They were junk as well I found almost no value in this book at all.
I really wanted to like this book, since I LOVED E myth, but it just seemed that Gerber had nothing new or inspiring to say, but only a bunch of mixed together, mid life anecdotes about entrepreneurship And what the freak is the Dreaming Room supposed to be about
I really enjoy Michael E Gerber s books He talks about business in a way that s inspiring and speaks to the highest ethic of commerce.I wish, however, that Gerber incorporated the business that he outlined as part of the dreaming room throughout the book instead of concluding with it.
Ths book has lots of useful information, but I felt it was too long for the amount of info it contained The book can be re written in quarter the size of it and still give me the same value.
Its like he didn t have much to say and kept repeating himself Not a how to book of an experiment in literary hypnosis.
Entrepreneurs are made, not born.
Another great book in a series of books from Michael Gerber Friends, all good reads.
Sorry Gerber s style of writing was far too whimsical for my taste Very difficult to read.
Great book for inspiration of ideas, business planning and dreaming.
Yes this sounds cheesy but this is the path that I m stepping out on we ll see how the book guides my way
