“Every page, every chapter, as I read this book, I asked myself, ‘Michael E. Gerber, how come YOU didn’t think of that?’ Just remarkable! Just absolutely a remarkable book. A pumpkin! Who would have thought? Every one of you—entrepreneurs, business owners—read it! Do it now!”
—MICHAEL GERBER, author of The E-Myth and creator of The E-Myth Evolution™
“Another great read from Mike Michalowicz! Mike’s off-the-cuff sense of humor and business savvy ensure that The Pumpkin Plan is a book that entrepreneurs should read for years to come.”
—GUY KAWASAKI, author of Enchantment and The Art of the Start
“Hard-hitting advice aimed directly at the entrepreneur who is stuck being a wandering generality instead of a meaningful specific. Plenty of seeds worth planting.”
—SETH GODIN, author of We Are All Weird
“Michalowicz hits it out of the park, yet again. The Pumpkin Plan is chock-full of Mike’s wonderful humor and is an extraordinary step-by-step guide for entrepreneurs whose business growth has plateaued.”
—J. J. RAMBERG, host of MSNBC’s Your Business
“In his crazy-like-a-fox style, Mike Michalowicz reveals why channeling a pumpkin farmer brings you unparalleled success. Michalowicz is rapidly becoming one of the most innovative business authors of our time. The proof is in the pudding (or pumpkin, as it were).”
—RIEVA LESONSKY, CEO of GrowBiz Media, former editorial director of Entrepreneur magazine
“Mike makes turning your business from ordinary to extraordinary as easy as following a simple step-by-step recipe. This book reveals degrees of knowledge and wisdom I have rarely seen in writing before. If you read only one book this year, let it be The Pumpkin Plan.”
—BOB BURG, co-author of The Go-Giver and author of Endless Referrals
“He’s a very handsome young man.”—URSULA MICHALOWICZ, Mike’s mom

The general consensus among the reviewers is well-deserved.
Perhaps the greatest impact for me in my business was learning that it is OKAY to say "NO" to certain clients, certain types of business decisions, etc. Not simply out of convenience or short-term considerations, but because it is in the best interest of your brand, and your goals, to do so. It is very true that tangential services, products, offerings, as well as high-maintenance clients (regardless of the revenue they contribute) hurt more than they help in the long-run.
This is one of many concepts Mike elucidates in an albeit light, but effective manner.
I definitely recommend it.
I can't recommend this book enough. I am planning on reading it again very soon, and have already begun to pumpkin plan my business too!
Thank you Mike! Can't wait to see what you have next.
