This book does that and more. Easy to read, straight to the point, loaded with tools and tips to build your empire, and laced with witty insight - this comprehensive work needs to be taken in doses and redosed again. I truly found it to be helpful and am looking forward to investing more focused time on using some of David's principles about healthy living, time efficiency and current technologies to propel my movement forward in business, consciousness and health. Most of all, I'm excited to expand the Tribe I've already begun building.
Warning to the faint-hearted, this book is more like a manual for a blueprint of a successful life. It's a map to creating a stellar existence on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual plane. This warning is given in the event that you are not aware that your life may be impacted by what you read. I certainly am glad that mine has been affected in a positively uplifted way.
Author lays out the story behind why this book came about and the weirdness...one reason he's writing the book is for his reincarnated self 1,000 years from now! The future him won't have to trial and error he can just learn from himself and shortcut.
The section about never writing a book but instead designing and envisioning a book series before you even begin the project is gold. Then the author tells you how to actually get this done. He lays out a complete system for a business to attract new customers in the door and then having them wanting to buy higher dollar products from you.
I highly recommend this book so you get 'r done and avoid secret-itis (which the author defines. Like cancer you don't want to get secret-itis).
Favor, David (2013-03-11). Beautiful Business (Kindle Locations 1309-1310). Easy Way Books. Kindle Edition.
The book is fresh in its style and in its information. He literally leads the reader through an Oz of marvelous postings and possibilities.
He talks about "Book Ecosystems," "Back Ends Devices," and "Plugging in to Your Tribe." Have you ever heard the terms "Eclectic Input," "Event Jacks" and "Review Jacking"? Neither did it, until I read this book, and now I wish I had known about them before. What do they mean? Well, you're just going to have to the read the book to find out.
Great thing too is that his book is a real easy read, despite the foreign terms. It's outlined beautifully in a large free type, with lots of white space interspersed with eye catching headlines, and boxes full of thought jogging information and advice.
Ok, I'll be a little bit more specific.
*For instance" He outlines "Book Chapter Types" with horizontal charts that emphasize an ACTION term on the left, and then ACTION to be taken on the right. For example The term BIAS is in the left column and then to the right a thin blue line separates the term from the explanation. Maybe you have to see it to appreciate it, but the graphic is quite effective in communicating his point.
The chapters are short and the print is large so don't be afraid if I mention Chapter 50 through 70. Some of his best work is in that section. Here he is first talking Taxes and Publishing. Then David Favor moves into "The Daily Do" and "Kung Fu." Yes, he can be quite inventive with his chapter headings, but they make sense in context.
Just wait until you learn about "Hub Books," "Spoke Books" and "Rim Products." Whew! The terms scared me at first, but after gaining his understanding they are very much my friends now.
If you are trying to understand the business of sharing and selling your books, these chapters might be just for you. Did you know there are "Hidden Compensation Killers" in the Kindle Market? Do you understand any part of "Liability Law" and "Property Ownership"? You will after you read Chapters 58-60.
Don't let some of the Freddy Kruger-like terms scare you. David Favor does a pretty good job of bringing the monsters down to an understandable and workable size. He also shows you how to make "Massive Kindle Sales," "Escape the Big Setback," and do "Beautiful Business."
David Favor's Beautiful Business Codex is beautiful with its design to communicate, and understandable critical thinking points of fact and view points. I'm digging deeper and reading it again, and then my books are going to make a lot of money!
