There was much awe, respect & buzz about this wealthy guy who smoked pot & walked around the conference in jeans & flip flops...because of his success in the online porn business and the fact that he is a prolific Internet marketer.
He did a great talk about flipping websites and gave great advice about being an internet entrepreneur so I just had to read his book...and he does not disappoint! This is mandatory reading for any entrepreneur or small business owner in the trenches working for total freedom and trying to figure out how to deal with daily real world challenges.
He touches on various aspects of life and business and gives you his unvarnished take on things. It will be time well spent digesting his take on life and business and I guarantee you'll pick up nuggets that will save you time, money & aggravation dealing with clients, prospects & colleagues. In particular, I love his extensive commentary around setting boundaries, business relationships, the education system and productivity.
He also calls you on your B.S. - and you know we all have some! I plan to get the print version and read again because there are so many actionable tips and quotable quotes in here, I need a pen to mark up his gems!
PS - Don't be put off by the promise of pot smoking & profanity. See past all that and focus on gaining insights from a brilliant marketer and successful entrepreneur!
Brad Gosse is one of those people you should never judge based on the exterior...or else you'll miss out on priceless clear-headed business wisdom and insights...
Some great marketing ideas also. Brad is very innovative and I found a few ideas that have helped me to make a few bucks but I appreciate Brad putting himself out there and being genuine in a world where you might think that you have to be a douche to be a successful marketer.
Great guy... great book... highly recommended!
This book is a quick read and can easily be finished in one day. The writing is very compelling and grabs your interest. By the time you finish the book you will be well entertained but will discover that you are missing an exact blueprint that you can follow yourself to achieve the same level of success.
The strengths of the book lie in providing the correct mindset that you need to have if you want to succeed. You need this foundation first before you follow any blueprint. Brad espouses why there are so few successful entrepreneurs in our society and he sums up the reasons to be our education system, our culture and the values taught to us by our parents. Those who succeed are those who overcome these barriers.
- teaches you how to create the right mindset
- learn how to get motivated
- why you should set value on your time and never waiver
- No detailed step-by-step guide that you can follow to achieve success
- Lack of details on accomplishing success as a marketer
Overall this book is entertaining and gives you the foundation that you will need for motivation and mindset to get ahead in life. It is short on the actual steps to take once you have built this solid foundation. For this reason I have given the book four stars. It would be a mistake to not read a book by a guy who has made millions in multiple industries and I would recommend it.
Keep "Rollin" Brad!
This book is an entertaining read and it offers some sound advice for making it in business and life. Mr. Gosse is very honest and straight-forward about his past work in the porn industry and how he still uses techniques and strategies that he learned in the early years of his Internet marketing career. He has learned many lessons from the hard knocks of life and he shares them in this book.
This book is not for everyone. The author occasionally uses profanity to make his points and he admits to being a regular pot smoker. You will not find detailed information about how to set up web sites, create digital products or engage in social media. You WILL find some wise advice for moving forward with your Internet business and how to deal with many of the problems that you will encounter.
Great read for all who are open-minded and seeking sound advice and inspiration for running an Internet marketing business.
