I was disappointed in this book. I had read the One Minute Manager decades ago and it was life-changing. This book is told as parable about a young man who wants to be a speaker. He meets a woman, they marry, start a speakers bureau together, and she becomes a full-time mom. Then his business takes off on the path to going public and his marriage is in trouble. He gives up the dream of a public business to save his marriage.
This doesn't sound like the steps towards being an entrepreneur. It's a blueprint for starting a speaking company. Unlike true entrepreneurs, the protagonist doesn't produce anything of value. Just words in the air. There's no advice on getting funding, selling equity, innovation, or exit strategies.
This is a feel-good motivational speech in the form of an audio book. It proposes that work-life balance is the path to success. It pushes Christian values - but not all of us are Christians. The entrepreneurs I know and have studied have a relentless single-minded drive. Many have given up relationships in favor of their dreams. This book doesn't explain how to do this. In fact, it advises against it.
I can't recommend this book.
