I almost did not read this because of the cover, but I was urged to do so. I still hate looking at the cover. I also recommend this book, but I still hate the totally unnecessary abbreviations on the cover. Really? Why? It is not appropriate or necessary, to bring to mind, what I consider to be a very vulgar expression, in this otherwise inspiring book of entrepreneurial success.
One of the lessons I appreciated most from this success textbook is: "If every person in your organization leads people smaller than themselves, you will become a company of tiny people. If every person in your organization leads people greater than themselves, you will become a company of giants."
I stepped into my office after traveling a few days to see my recently ordered WTF?! sitting in my chair. I brewed a hot cup of java, came back to my chair, picked up my copy, and read it cover-to-cover, pausing only to visit the loo (a result of multiple java brewings). The book was well written (I could see the work of a good word Wizard throughout the book) and lays bare the honesty that only failure reveals. WTF?! gives hope to those of us who have certainly had our share of the f-word on the entrepreneurial journey and lights the fire of those aspiring to create something spectacular, i.e., creating an extraordinary life. Hell, who turns a junk removal business into the FedEx of junk removal? Brian did, and in the process lifted so many up along the path, a less traveled by path. Do yourself a favor and go buy this book. Take this from a guy who hasn't been able to read a book cover-to-cover in years (ADHD?).
I would like to have seen more expanded upon the frustrations and challenges the were the “Fails” in this WTF book. At times I felt like this guy’s failures are few and far between. Perhaps that’s what the editors recommended. I just would have felt more of Brian’s suffering to connect more and relate more to the struggles WE owners go thru. At times the book was too predictable, but with a brand like his, we already know the level of success he has achieved. Congrats Brian and O2E brands. Smokin Steve’s Catering will be the soon!
In the future, people do not seem to want excess in their lives...so the future may have a different outcome. Timing can be everything.

With WTF, Brian speaks a language that I understand and can embrace. It's ok to make mistakes and it's ok that I don't have it fully figured out. However, the commitment to vision, the right people, humbleness and an openness to try, fail, learn and try again are all things that resonate with me. I feel inspired and empowered after reading WTF.
