Many other companies have grown out of this culture. Recently one of the companies that used to sell pest control and moved to door to door alarm system and home automation sales sold their business for $3 Billion. Randy and Ethan recognized that they had a good thing in their ability to recruit motivated young people who had served Mormon missions and have them sell in more ways than door to door. They moved into a different arena and connected with the seminar driven "success & self help" arena. Randy & Ethan began to pitch a no risk win-win sales relationship to self help gurus such as Tony Robbins who would fill arenas with people who had hopes and dreams looking for inspiration. You see each of these seminar sales self help gurus would largely make their money on books and tapes with low production costs and high margins.
The high margins were justified to a buyer with the hope that the guru inspired.Read more ›
I had come to know Randy as a co-founder of Prosper Inc., a coaching group, and I knew Randy's company had achieved a lot of success and that Randy had graduated from Harvard Business School. But, when it comes to writing books, smart people running very successful companies can write some very dull, boring books.
As someone who has read literally thousands of books on numerous subjects, I must admit, I possessed a lot of skepticism. Was this going to be another rah, rah book on "you can be wealthy too"?
When I received Randy's book called Prosper: Create the Life You Really Want, I noticed that his co-author was CEO and co-founder of Prosper Inc., Ethan Willis. I turned to read about Ethan and discovered he had co-written a #1 Wall Street Journal and New York Time's bestseller called "The One Minute Entrepreneur." Ethan also had been recognized as "Entrepreneur of the Year" by Ernst & Young.
O.K. Two smart guys.
When I started reading Prosper, I was immediately intrigued when I came to the fact that Randy and Ethan had founded Prosper in 1999 and had coached over 75,000 people of all ages in 80 countries to become more successful. 75,000 people is a lot of people!
As I kept reading, the book reminded me of a great European film that starts out with no rush to wow you; then, suddenly you find yourself hooked by its genius.
That's what the book Prosper does.
In today's crazy, frantic age with so many unknowns and great uncertainty, Prosper becomes the comforting voice that lays out a compelling blueprint for living a fulfilled life.Read more ›
This is yet another boring useless rehash of blah blah blah crap that basically says do what you love, make millions (too bad if doing what you love has little income) and with your happy work and money, you are now prosperous.
There. I just saved you $10.
I can handle it if a book has one thought in it that conveys something of value, but this book is just a vacuum. There's nothing there.
Seriously. Avoid this book. It is truly worthless.
I've read it once and I'm reading it again.
