Reader’s Review: - Mike R Johnson … 5.0 Out Of 5 Stars

This Book Is My Top Go To Book For Building My Business And The Business Owners I Work With.

September 19, 2015 … Format: Paperback Verified Purchase

I recommend this book to every business owner I know! It needs to be on your shelf as one of the go to books you will use repeatedly because a business plan is not something you write once. It is something that great owners that build great companies go to repeatedly. The brilliance of Joe's book is he makes the complicated simple. I have been working with business owners for 30 years through banks and consulting companies and I know the reason most owners Do not have a plan is because it has been made too complicated. Mr Calhoon gets right to the Core issues every business needs to build a solid organization. He makes Mission simple, Vision simple, Values simple with examples to follow. Then who is going to do WHAT by WHEN. In addition, never forget to celebrate with your team when your goals are accomplished. Joe gives clear ways to get all your team involved and hold each other accountable to get the goals done. Maybe most important, is he has a great process to help your crew set the values that your team will live by, as the way you treat each other, your clients and vendors. These are central to building leaders. Thanks Joe for your book and what it has meant to my company and me.

How To Be A Capitalist Without Any Capital: The Four Rules You Must Break To Get Rich By Nathan Latka (Summary)

How To Be A Capitalist Without Any Capital: The Four Rules You Must Break To Get Rich By Nathan Latka
Hardcover
           Available Formats :- Kindle / Audible Audiobook / Paperback

You don't need to be university educated, have money, be creative, or even have an idea to get rich. You just need to be willing to break the rules.

How to be a Capitalist Without Any Capital will teach you how to be a modern opportunist - investor, entrepreneur, or side hustler - by breaking these four golden rules of the old guard:

1. Focus on one skill: Wrong. Don't cultivate one great skill to get ahead. In today's business world, success goes to the multitaskers.

2. Be unique: Wrong. The way to get rich is not by launching a new idea but by aggressively copying others and then adding your own twist.

3. Focus on one goal: Wrong. Focus instead on creating a system to produce the outcome you want, not just once, but over and over again.

4. Appeal to the masses: Wrong. The masses are broke ($4k average net worth in America?). Let others cut a trail through the jungle so you can peacefully walk in and capitalize on their hard work.

By rejecting these defunct rules and following Nathan Latka's unconventional path, you can copy other people's ideas shamelessly, bootstrap a start-up with almost no funding, invest in small local businesses for huge payoffs, and reap all the benefits.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Nathan challenges the old-school business rules most entrepreneurs take for gospel and teaches--with pictures as proof--how he used a totally different set of rules to build a fortune. Refreshing to see an author who is actually doing what he writes, and then sharing his real tactics. No BS 'theory,' this book is for people who take action."  --Tucker Max, CEO of Book in a Box and author of I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell

"Just finished. That was damn good. I usually zip through books, but this one just kept sucking me in. I like that it was full of real stories with screenshots." --Andrew Warner, creator of Mixergy

"I’m still in the glass-eating phase of my career, so I’m eager to copy others’ maps. This book is giving me loads of new ideas." --Sean Langhi, first-time founder

Excerpt. © Reprinted By Permission. All Rights Reserved.

Introduction

As I began writing this book, my mom called. “You’re making so much money,” she said. “It’s going to cause havoc if you happen to die, God forbid, and you don’t have a plan for your assets.” It’s funny. Three years ago she was skeptical when I chose to drop out of school. Her message changed from “Stay in school!” to “Get a will!” More on me later. . . .
Let’s talk about you first.

You know those people whose lives you just can’t figure out? They travel the world whenever they want. They barely work. They’re always with their family, or conquering the kind of grand life adventure you’ve reserved for . . . someday. Somehow, they’re happy with their life as it is—not just hiding behind a “perfect life” façade on social media.

There’s the kid from your college dorm who dropped out and has since raised $1M in start-up funding. The dad you see at your son’s soccer games, or at your gym, who drives a Range Rover and is always around in the middle of the week when most parents are working. Your neighbor who quit her corporate job and now has her own business that you hear is making her $10K or $20K a month.

You know these people are average at best. They’re not super talented or smart, but they’re living like kings and queens and you’re dumbfounded.

What they know that you don’t is how to be a capitalist without any capital. There are four golden rules that the business world has sold us to keep us from being successful. Those rules must be broken. And the people you’re thinking about have mastered breaking those rules. It’s easy to dismiss the superrich as trust-fund babies, or to assume their spouse is the breadwinner. Or we think maybe they’re not rich at all and just racking up credit card debt. These scenarios will be true for some people, but I’m not talking about them.

I’m talking about the people who are wealthy by their own doing. Their families have nothing to do with their fat bank accounts. You can’t stand their weekday Instagram posts from their sailboat, or the sight of them on another overseas vacation, but as much as they annoy you, you’re also dying to know how they do it. How are these people so successful—and free— while you’re withering away underneath fluorescent lights at your desk job 50+ hours a week?

It’s because they’re part of the “New Rich,” as Tim Ferriss calls the segment of the population who have figured out how to maximize everything in their life—even if it’s not much—so it becomes an asset that works for them. The New Rich are resourceful with their time, their money, and their energy. They get what they want when they want it. They travel however much they want. They have blank calendars. And they have very, very few expenses.

Tim Ferriss introduced us to the New Rich over a decade ago in his book The 4-Hour Workweek, but a lot has changed since then. Today my peers and I are getting rich not just by starting companies from scratch, but by leveraging gold mines like Instagram and Airbnb that didn’t exist in the early 2000s. We drive wealth by taking advantage of new tools quickly and figur- ing out how to get those tools to work for us so we can work less.

When an average person sees a new rich person, they assume that new rich person has some magical quality. It’s not magic. The average person just doesn’t understand how the rich person got so rich, so they explain it away as “magical.” A magician practices a series of “moves” or “tactics” behind a curtain so that when the trick is put together, the average viewer misses the sleight of hand. If you saw the magician practicing behind the curtain, you’d think, “I can pull that trick off, too!” Building wealth is the same.

These magicians practice behind the curtain, but I’m holding back nothing in this book. I’ve been a wealth magician for the past decade, and despite my lawyer’s recommendations, I’m sharing everything in this book so you can pull off your own “wealth magic.” You’ll see my tax returns, my
profit and loss statements, my email negotiations when buying and selling companies. I’m sharing it all so you can study and get a very real sense of how I’ve built my empire. I’ll take you behind the curtain of the New Rich so you can become part of the inner sanctum.

The lifestyle you want is not out of your reach—you just don’t know the moves yet. This book will lead you through those moves, starting with some I began making at the age of nineteen. You’ll learn how to replicate the inner workings of more than twenty revenue streams I now have at twenty-nine years old.

If you’re ready to join the New Rich, read on, my new wealth magicians! 
 
My Story And Why You Need This Book  

There are a few things you should know about me:
 
» I’m a college dropout.
» I started my first company in my Virginia Tech dorm room when I was twenty. Within four years I hired forty people and grew the company to $5M in sales and a $10.5M valuation.
» I walked away from a $6.5M acquisition offer for that company when I was twenty-three.
» I don’t have a résumé.
» I bought my first piece of real estate on my own when I was twenty-four.
» I bought my first company when I was twenty-six.
» Today, at twenty-nine years old, I run my own private equity firm, buying and selling companies.
» I use patterns and data to drive my decisions.
 
That last detail is probably the reason I’ve gotten this far, and it’s how I’m going to help you get here, too. I’m not going to waste your time with small talk and rah-rah positivity. If you’re familiar with my podcast, The Top Entrepreneurs, you already know this about me. I have interviewed more than five hundred of the world’s top thinkers, disrupters, and CEOs in search of patterns that anyone can apply to gain wealth, work less, and get what they want out of life. I get to the data and I get to the numbers so you and I can learn from the real stuff. In fact, I pressure these CEOs so hard, they share secret strategies they wish they didn’t share, and threaten to sue after their episode goes live. Their fault! (Your gain!) An unfortunate side effect is that I’m the most sued podcaster—you should see my wall of cease and desist letters (a beautiful thing! I always win these contests!).

This book is a natural extension of my podcast. I will present the secrets of the New Rich and feature real stories from twenty-year-old dorm-room CEOs, Airbnb millionaires, filthy rich software founders, and financial technology billionaires—all of whom are building their wealth every day, right now. We’ll get their stories, but just as important, we’ll look at the real numbers behind their businesses so we can understand how they make it work.

Then there are the patterns. In all my time talking to top entrepreneurs, I’ve noticed that their execution plans follow similar patterns that counter conventional business wisdom. These patterns directly correlate to wealth, freedom, and a lot of winning—and they’ll surprise the hell out of you. Once you learn about them in the chapters ahead, you’ll realize building wealth is so easy it’s unbelievable, and you’ll join those rich friends whose success baffled you just a few months earlier.

My obsession with numbers is so fierce that it’s the reason I dropped out of college. That, and the money-smart mindset my mom has instilled in me since before my memories kicked in. She swears that during a car ride when I was five years old I asked her why we never went out to dinner anymore. She explained that she and my dad had to make choices. They’d recently decided to move our family into a new, big house in the country. Since making that choice, they had to choose not to spend money on other things, like eating out.

I sat quietly in the back seat for a long time. Then I said, “So, Mom, can I choose to get into my piggy bank and take us out to Pizza Hut tonight?” She didn’t take me up on it. Instead, she and Dad chose to take us out to dinner that evening, but the lesson was clear.

I have no memory of this conversation, but when I hear the story it says so much about how my parents raised me to think like an entrepreneur. Mom wasn’t talking about the family budget that day—not exactly. Her bigger point was that you have to make choices based on the life you want to live now—and the life you want to live in the future. It’s all about opportunity cost. Sometimes that means less pizza in exchange for the big coun- try house (except when your five-year-old breaks your resolve in a two-minute conversation). Other times it means following your gut when you see a big opportunity in front of you, even if it goes against everything you’re told you’re “supposed to be doing” with your life.
That’s where I found myself when I decided to drop out of college. I stayed until my junior year, but I’ll never forget the moment I realized school wasn’t for me. It was during a statistics course very early on in my time at Virginia Tech. I should have loved this class, but the teacher was so boring and I had other things on my mind.

The midterm that semester was my wake-up call. I’d stayed up the night before preselling a Facebook fan page product I’d just launched. I was very tired, but I’d sent out $1,400 in sales proposals that night, so I had no regrets. I had set up a ping on my phone so it would make a sound every time a new PayPal sale came in. My phone was across the room during the test, but I heard it ping twice in the two-hour exam period. I was selling my product at $700 a pop, so I made $1,400 before the exam was done. I failed it, but that failure turned into unstoppable momentum to keep growing my business.

I realized I was a capitalist the moment I got those failed test scores. I thought, If I can fail this exam and make $1,400 while doing it, school is just not my thing. I stuck with it a couple more years but I knew I had to get out and build my company. If you’re a student reading this, keep going. It gets even better . . .

When I finally did decide to leave school, one of the first things I did was call Mom. I thought she’d be livid with me for wanting to quit—especially after she’d worked three jobs to pay her own way through college. Now my parents were paying my tuition, and there I was, throwing it away. But she wasn’t angry at all. She just told me it was my choice, but I should think about my options. It was the only time in my life when my parents would pay for me to go to college (I was fortunate and thankful), so she suggested I finish my degree in case one of my business ventures failed down the line.

She had a point, but I knew I’d never push myself to be successful if I had that safety net under me. I told her I just had to go.

Mom said she knew she’d raised three stubborn, ambitious kids, so she wasn’t going to stand in the way of what we wanted to do. She just pushed me to consider my choices before jumping.
All I could think about were the numbers. I knew I could go way bigger than $1,400 in an afternoon if I put more time and energy into my business. Forget the rules, or what anyone said I should be doing with my life at twenty years old (thanks, Mom, for not being one of those people). I saw my opportunity and I was going for it.

Hard Goals : The Secret To Getting from Where You Are To Where You Want to Be 1st Edition By Mark Murphy (Summary)

Hard Goals : The Secret To Getting from Where You Are To Where You Want to Be 1st Edition By Mark Murphy

Hardcover    Other Formats :- Kindle, Audiobook (Free With Your Audible Trial), Paperback

Publisher's Summary

Want to increase sales? Get promoted? Change the world? There's a goal for that . . .

Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, the school teacher next door who amassed a million-dollar fortune . . . Did these people succeed because they were more motivated or because they were more disciplined? The answer to both questions is yes - but not in the ways you might think. Anyone can achieve extraordinary things. The secret is setting goals that test the very limits of your abilities.

In Hard Goals, Mark Murphy, the acclaimed author of Hundred Percenters, explains the science behind getting from where you are to where you want to be in your career, business, and life.

Leadership IQ, Murphy's top-rated leadership training consultancy, studied nearly 5,000 workers from virtually every field and found that extraordinary goals - the kind that got America to the moon and back, developed the iPod, created nanotechnology, and helped individuals overcome tremendous personal adversity - stimulate and engage the brain in ways that are profoundly different from the goals most people set.

Research conducted for this book revealed that people who set Hard goals are up to 75 percent more fulfilled than people with easy goals. In these pages, Mark Murphy explains how success, and the satisfaction it brings, comes from knowing how to set goals that are:

  • Heartfelt - have an emotional attachment, "scratch an existential itch."
  • Animated - motivated by a vision, that movie that plays over and over in your mind.
  • Required - imbued with such a sense of urgency that you have no other choice but to start acting on them right here, right now.
  • Difficult - the greatest achievements come from the toughest challenges - but they also leave you feeling stronger, smarter, and more fulfilled.

People set goals all the time, but the majority end up unfulfilled or abandoned. With all the challenges facing us today, we could use a little more achievement.

Hard Goals can help us get there by offering the hard science and practical techniques to conquer procrastination and unlock your brain's potential for realizing your goals.

©2011 McGraw-Hill (P)2011 McGraw-Hill Education

Amazon.com Review :-

"Ever felt like you weren't reaching your goals as fast as you would like? HARD GoalsK shows you how to change your thinking and get on the path to tremendous achievement!"
--Marshall Goldsmith, world-renowned executive coach and author of the New York Times bestsellers MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There

"Hard Goals is full of fascinating insights regarding how to get yourself to achieve things you never thought possible, and Murphy's key ideas have strong research support. . . . If you want to achieve something great or important in your life, this is the book for you."
―Edwin A. Locke, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland

"If you want a mediocre life, set ho-hum goals. If you want a life filled with excellence and meaning, set HARD Goals. This book shows you how to set HARD Goals and love every minute of achieving them. The end result? Winning in life and unparalleled fulfillment."
Lyle Nelson, four-time Olympian and author of Spirit of Champions

"Every company has goals these days. So why do most goals fall short? Why do leaders keep setting the same failed goals year after year? HARD Goals gives you the cutting-edge science to engage every employee in pursuing and achieving extraordinary goals. No more procrastination, foot-dragging, or giving up. With HARD Goals, your organization will achieve astonishing results. Every CEO, manager, and employee needs to read this book!"
Kevin M. Andrews, President, SmartBen

Free To Focus … A Total Productivity System To Achieve More By Doing Less By Michael Hyatt (Summary)

Free To Focus … A Total Productivity System To Achieve More By Doing Less By Michael Hyatt
Hardcover     Paperback     Kindle     Audible Free With Your Audible Trial

The Main Idea

The key to productivity today is not to try and squeeze in more stuff. Instead, you should be focused on getting the right things done in the face of 24/7 distractions and sidetracks. If you can start each day with clarity about your highest value priorities and then end each day with a feeling of accomplishment, you will be doing well.

Achieving more by doing, less of the stuff that doesn't matter sounds great but how do you do that in the real world? A good 3-step system for this is:

Free To Focus

1

Stop

2

Cut

3

Act

  • STOP — and figure out why you're working first. It's only once you clarify why you're working that you can then set about upgrading how you work.
  • CUT — clarify what you won't do so you have more time for what you do need to do.
  • ACT — fill your day with high-leverage tasks, and look for ways to get these tasks done in less time and with less stress than before.

Your attention is being spammed all day long. What will your life have been, in the end, but the sum total of everything you spent it focusing on?

Oliver Burkeman, journalist

It's time to hit the reset button on your life and finally put a system in place that ensures the time and energy to accomplish your most important goals, both in and out of the office. The most productive business leaders I coach recognize productivity is not about getting more things done; it's about getting the right things done. Can you imagine it? Can you picture when you feel fully in control of where your time is going, when you get to decide how to spend your precious energy, and when you hit the pillow at night still energized from a productive, satisfying day? I hope you can, because that time is coming. You really can accomplish more by doing less.

Michael Hyatt

The Free To Focus Formula

1. Stop. It may sound counterintuitive to begin a productivity system by telling people to stop but the reality is that if you don't stop doing marginal value activities; you won't have enough time to do what matters most. The three actions in this step are:

  1. Formulate — clarify exactly what you want to achieve by being more productive.
  2. Evaluate — separate your high-leverage activities from your low-leverage busy work.
  3. Rejuvenate — clarify how to use rest to boost your results when working.

2. Cut. What you choose not to do is just as important to your productivity as what you actually do with your time. To work to eliminate low-leverage tasks in order to claw back more time for better high-leverage tasks, the three steps are:

  1. Eliminate — banish all the time bandits, which steal your time.
  2. Automate — all the low-leverage tasks you feasibly can.
  3. Delegate — get work off your schedule in a practical and sustainable way.

3. Act. Once you have cut out nonessentials, it is then time to start executing more high-leverage tasks, which add value. As you do this, look for ways to get these tasks done in less time and with less stress than before. The three steps here are:

  1. Consolidate — find ways to bunch high-leverage tasks together for efficiency.
  2. Designate — stage tasks so they fit your schedule rather than becoming urgent.
  3. Activate — eliminate distractions and make maximal use of your skills & abilities.

Summaries.Com Editor's Thoughts

I enjoyed Michael Hyatt's latest book, which followed on from his other recent book Your Best Year Ever.

His basic philosophy that the key to success is to get more of the right things done at the expense of busywork and marginal-value activities makes sense. I thought the steps he suggested — STOP, CUT, ACT — are workable for the real world. Just about everyone today obsesses over trying to cram more and more into each day.

I also liked his suggestion to have a set morning ritual, workday startup ritual, end-of-workday ritual and evening ritual as the four basic building blocks of your day. So too were his ideas about using more templates and automation.

Overall, distraction is the enemy of productivity today and this is a great system for freeing up more time to focus.
