When I first began working with David Fishof in 1980, I noticed right away that he was the king of taking ideas from the music world and relating them to the sports world and vice versa. Applying what he has learned in the music business to the business world just makes sense. Fishof's book will help any professional take an intangible concept and turn it into a concrete success.”

I've said it before, and I'll continue to say it, when it comes to business and the Rock n’ Roll Fantasy Camp, David Fishof is a genius! He took his vision and created a way to make dreams come true for so many. This book really digs deep into his mind and besides a great entertainment read, he shares many helpful tips on how you can develop your ideas and turn them into profit-making business deals. A must read for anyone wanting to be involved in not only the music business but a positive, self-improved life as well!"
Billy Amendola, Associate Editor, Modern Drummer magazine
Passion, inspiration, street smarts, cultural savvy, and raw unfettered guts have always been the main drivers of rock-and-roll success stories. David Fishof has all of those qualities, as well as an almost magical ability to make things happen. So you can take the safe path and fall in step with the bazillions of other suits who are reading the same business treatises as everyone else, or you can embrace some cagey rock and roll attitude and MAKE YOUR BONES like a superstar.”
Michael Molenda, Editor-in-Chief, Guitar Player magazine

All my friends and family will get this book for Holidays and Birthdays.
The best books leave you feeling like the author is a new friend. Rock Your Business did just that. Co-written by New York Times best selling author, Michael Levin, this book is brave, authentic and loaded with entrepreneurial inspiration and lessons about how to go for it, lessons from the exciting world of rock and roll.
From the story about how Billy Joel's promoter ensures that the front row seats go to raving fans (to inspire the performer), to the story of how Fishof took his Rabbi to Shea Stadium to help negotiate a sports contract (he got more than double the previous Rabbi-less offer), to the poignant story of how Fishof negotiated doubling the salary for his father, a cantor at a local synagogue, this book is full of heart. And juicy behind the scenes stuff. But it's not just stories. Fishof is generous with his insights about what why some stuff works and why other stuff doesn't. And it'll inspire you to launch that thing you've been thinking about launching.
Read the book. Go to his Rock 'n Roll Fantasy camp in Vegas. Step into the spotlight! I'm telling all my clients to read it 'cause this couldn't be cooler!
Author, Step Into The Spotlight!
All that's great, but I would challenge that with the knowledge ONE book, based upon decades of EXPERIENCE, can give you. This is that book, and it's worth every cent. I have been booking bands, events for years. I have also been a musician. I have learned, that off the stage, it's all about business.
This book taught me so much about that side. Just the suggestions/advice alone is amazing. David has done a great job explaining his keys to success to you. He explains it, in a straight-to-the-point, meat & potatoes type format which I love. I can't stand when authors just babble and go on and on. Brevity is key and this is one book that you will have no problem understanding what it wants to teach you.
Bravo to David for this amazing book. Students, CEO's, Entrepreneurs, Musicians, all should read this book. I will definately be promoting this book to all my friends. I will also be picking up his other book in negotiations. I can't wait to start putting into practice all that I learned from David.
Way to go David! Thank you.
There are lots of lessons in this book regarding business, trust, and life that David opens up about. Everything from how he produced the Monkees' reunion tour, his work with the National Football League and Major League Baseball greats, how he created his dream of Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp, and even his battle to maintain his work in the face of adversity from his own assistant stealing his contact list and running or going up against the NFL after their own admission of using his idea and refusing to let him execute it. David presents in this book the tools and methods used to make NFL, MLB, and rock and roll stars great and how you can use those same tools to launch your vision and brand to a higher echelon.
The book, divided up in 4 sections, will help you focus on dreaming bigger, attracting an audience, overcoming enormous obstacles, and taking your idea or business to the next level. There are plenty of examples in this book of how David was able to call on big names to help him produce amazing tours and productions during his 25 years in the music industry. There are even some black and white photographs in some chapters of David with some of those greats.Read more ›
