Rocket Fuel was a good read for myself. As a Visionary Entrepreneur & founder of a company that is just under 5 years old, I was able to identify some of the missing pieces we have right now that may prevent us from achieving our 10-year goals.

The next piece is of course finding an Integrator. Do you have one internally? If so, are they competent enough to fulfill your vision within your budgetary requirements?

For a founding entrepreneur, or if you're recruiting for an integrator, I do recommend this book. I've handed out multiple copies now when meeting candidates I've been recruiting, so they can see deeper than just a job description. I've actually purchased 10 copies thus far and counting.

Now on the flip side, can a Visionary create a lot of success in a company they started without a True Integrator in place? Absolutely they can, this method just explains how to potentially do it faster and why having a #2 can be better for your personal state of happiness.

Starting and growing a company is HARD work and often requires making a lot of tough decisions, hard enough that most folks fail at it. Picking this book up will give you some good insight into why that might have happened to you previously (if you failed in a previous business venture) and some solid concepts to potentially avoid it from happening again.

The last thing I will say though, I was able to start and run my company without a true integrator (even to this day), but I can see where their value is observed after understanding the relationship better from reading Rocket Fuel.

As an Executive Search consultant to growing entrepreneurial businesses, I see many Visionary CEOs struggle with the daily demands of running their organizations. There is a better way - delegate that to an Integrator!

Based on over a decade of experience working with 120+ companies, EOS Worldwide founder Gino Wickman and his co-author Mark Winters explore both the individual aspects of the Visionary and Integrator roles, and their relationship, in great detail. The book is filled with examples of Visionaries / Integrator successes and failures, including quotes from the pairs themselves.

If you are spending too much time working “in” instead of “on” your business and are looking for a “help mate” to expand your business, this book will show you how!

My client got this book and recommended it to me. I purchased it after how much he kept raving about it and how he's 84% visionary. I took the quiz and got 58% visionary and 94% integrator.

Since I read this book, our relationship has gotten so much stronger. He knows he loves to throw ideas at me and see what sticks, and I know I love hearing his ideas but can't come up with great ideas like him.

Because we understand this, it has helped us figure out where our strengths lie and how we can help each other move the business forward.

So, if you're looking to create stronger relationships with the people you work with, buy this book and take the quiz. Get your team to take the quiz too and find out what kind of person they are. Then reassess how your team operates and move forward from there.

I bet by the end of the month, your team will be happier and feel more fulfilled having projects and tasks they are naturally talented at.

I have been working directly with business owners and their leadership teams for over 20 years. I say that, because it's true, and so you'll decide my next statement may be worth considering. If you started a business and have been running it successfully BUT are frustrated with your second in command, then believe me they are frustrated with you too. So, read at least the first 2 chapters of this book. Next, ask them to read those chapters too. ---You WILL be Glad You DID!

The premise of the book was really helpful, and we've since reorganized our little team into V/A roles. The reason I give this book 3 stars is because I felt like it was poorly written. They use too many cliches and platitudes, probably trying to be funny or punchy, but it was just cheesy. That silliness seemed unnecessary, and I really just wanted them to get to the point... but that's just my opinion. The business examples and the graphs they used to compare the roles were good.

This is a must read book for visionary leaders. It clearly lays out the type of person a visionary needs to make vision happen and get out of the weeds and out in front of your company. Packed with tools, ideas and real life examples of how to make it all work and grow your company.
