I found it easy to apply the thought provoking exercises.

The books gives the reader the ability to think out the box and become a company one and strive to make their goals obtainable.

Like many great books, you'll find that while the title is "spot on," it also has more than one meaning.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Callahan finally uses real logic in how to get ahead in business. You are a company of one and he trains you and teaches you how to be a Company of One through the book. Dr. Callahan goes through a detailed process of how to develop your Company of One--look at yourself as the COO, CFO, CRO, CMO and CEO of your company. Dr. Callahan doesn't suggest you not have a resume, but that you need to use your other skills and knowledge to get what you love to do. How to become successful, how to focus on the solutions and plans and NOT on complaining and blaming. Why didn't you get the job? It's because you didn't connect with the right person. Read the book to help develop your company of one

Do you want to know how a corporate works? What exactly a CEO, COO, CFO, CIO does? What are the daily duties or responsibilities of those roles in very simple and plain words? "Resumes are worthless" is the right book for you.

I am really impressed by certain things discussed in the book. One of them was formula, "Event + response = outcome" which explains events are not in our control but we can control how we respond to those events. One more interesting thing that I learned is Passion > vision > risk > goal > execute. This explains the evolution process or the steps to convert your passion as your career. The other useful things that were discussed in this book are various inspirational quotes and reference to many relative personality/career development books.

I would summarize this book as a pocket dictionary to organize you as company of one.

Like many great books, you'll find that while the title is "spot on," it also has more than one meaning. Callahan brings a great new angle to how business professionals must not only take a new look (and responsibility) for their career, they must prepare differently. This book has great stories to tie the lessons together and is on my "must read" recommended reading list. G

The "Company of One" is a different take on today's job market. Typically we are all taught to look at open jobs and then concentrate on gaining the skills we need to compete for those jobs. Dr Callahan completely flips this upside down. He challenges you to discover what you are truly passionate about and then pushes you to make a career out of your passion. Life is just too short to work at a job you hate.

I highly recommend the book. If nothing else, you will gain a different perspective on building a career, which I think will be very helpful with the condition of the job market today.

Although this book was assigned to me by my instructor! I will recommend this to any new graduates, entrepreneur, or people seeking career change. It made me look at myself as one person company and value myself. In valuing myself it made me look at the things I need to work on and the things I am great at doing in my current position. It help me to uncover that I am currently working in a passion which was a breathe of fresh and also showed me how to complete reverse interviews which has possibly got me a promotion (prays). Even my boss as well as my girlfriend became interested in this book. Resumes are really useless and the information in this book will help you sale yourself outside of just a resume and open yourself up to more opportunities.

This book in ingenious !! The testimonies and the tips that he gives you on developing your company of one are outstanding. This book has helped transform me from being viewed as a mediocre employee to a highly thought of and respected employee. It's amazing!! I never thought of viewing my management as my customers, and is my duty to meet and even excel in their expectations. The number concept is mind blowing. What's you know what you're worth, your mindset will never be the same. I highly recommend this book.~Chelicia H

This book is a must read. It will challenge everything you were taught by career counselors at school. The reverse interview was by far the most impactful topic discussed in Resumes Are Worthless. It has changed my life and challenged me to leave my comfort zone, go through a process of self discovery and reflection, and know how my passions can pave the way to a successful career.
