After reading "Zero to One Million" and implementing the strategies and techniques in Mr. Allis's book, my business revenue has almost tripled in a short 4-months time. I am the CEO of a neutraceutical corporation and interact with CEO'S from companies in the USA and Internationally. I can honestly say I have tried multiple methods and hired multiple marketing and management teams in the past, spending 100'S of thousands of dollars with little to no results. I have also read multiple books on subjects of personal and business development including Stephen Covey, Richard Gerber, Anthoney Robbins, Louise Hay, Dale Carnegie and more. "Zero to One Million" covers the beginner to advanced stages it takes to become successful and financially secure. I would recommend this book to all entrepreneurs and successful business men and women.

Most books of this genre are great motivational books, but are simply that. Zero..Million is a tool for anyone who has ever dreamt of starting a business. It has the aspects of all the other books, plus practical instructions, how-tos and resources. The 100 Steps to Building a Business is in itself worth the price of the book. It gives you the motivation to get you going and the step-by-step details to keep you going. The introduction is a bit lengthy; the global framework is a bit dry, but contains important information. I definently recommend this book to anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit, product idea or desire to start a business.

I've known Ryan for almost two years now. He has done tremendous work for me and I am happy to own and have read Zero to One Million. If you have not read this book yet I will explain why you should... Ryan was not a dot com millionaire, he was not "one of those kids your neighbor knows" when he made his first million, in fact he's not even a computer geek. He's only 19, but let Ryan introduce himself to you in the first chapters, he'll earn your respect before you can sit it down. Ryan's been in the business world long enough to know there is no 'inside information' that helps people like him succeed. Ryan was born with an unnatural ability to visualize an entire business, from the first customer to the millionth. His perspective provides readers a roadmap in which they learn how he did it, and how he continues to do it. Zero to One Million explains 'it.' When I met Ryan at age 17, he had not only visualized his first business, he had grown it into a million dollar operation. Zero to One Million is priceless for two reasons: 1) Ryan's detailed path of personal and professional development shows how a great entrepreneur was made and will instill confidence and direction in anyone with dreams, 2) Ryan is an expert at creating systems, the pages of Zero to One Million are a written key of the systematic procedures (previously contained only in his head) he uses to organize his bias-toward-action that leads him to success in multiple business ventures. In closing, if you're an entrepreneur with a dream, or if you dream of being an entrepreneur, read Zero to One Million (borrow it from a friend if you can't afford it) and let Ryan push you off that ledge. You'll be prepared for whatever is next.

I am the author of the best-selling book, The Student Success Manifesto and have known Ryan for about two years now. I have to sincerely say that every interaction that I have had with him has left me wiser and more motivated. This book will do the same for you!
In addition, the fact that Zero to One Million is so easy to read says a lot about Ryan's deep understanding of what it takes to be an entrepreneur!

The problem with books that have been composed by successful businessmen and women is that those books have, usually, been written after those individuals have reached the top: the top of the entrepreneur mountain that is, and they have accomplished their dream only to be "cursed with knowledge" when attempting to inspire others. What about those entrepreneurs on their way to the top?

Ryan writes this book as he is creating his multi-million dollar company. His viewpoints are those of someone in the midst of the struggles and triumphs that every successful "entrepreneur in the making" goes through. Ryan has written one of the best business startup and growth books that I have ever read. This book is written in a way that seems like your best friend has just found his success and wants to help you achieve that same success. For me, this book was one I just could not put down. It is a very easy and enjoyable read. I recommend "Zero to One Million" as an inspirational read to any young person with a dream of one day starting his or her own company.

I was reading the other reviews and wondered if I was reading the same book. I even checked the cover to make sure. Yep, I read the same book but didn't get the same information out of it than other people had. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if all of the other reviews were from Ryan Allis' mother, neighbors, and friends just to boost the book's credibility.

Here's the deal: I've actually built and sold my company and didn't do it the way Ryan Allis suggested. Not even close. Okay, so maybe he has a different method, right? I just don't see how it's possible to build a company the way he outlines, then to sell it?

I think that he's trying to cover way too much information in this book. That's the first problem.

The second problem is this: He tries to "fluff out" the book by adding extraneous information like "globalization" and why there was the "dot bomb crash" in the late 90s. WHO CARES? It's like he purposely adds useless information to either make himself seem more intelligent, confuse his readers, mask that he doesn't know what he's talking about or add pages to what would otherwise be a 50-page book.

Another issue I have is that he has his readers do an "opportunity recognition and evaluation" of a company that they would like to start. Such companies he was able to "brainstorm" are making oxygen tanks so dogs and cats can go diving, flavored straws, sonar for blind people, a teddy bear with sensors and small computer inside that would talk to infants/toddlers and encourage good behavior or tell them a bedtime story (then what are parents for?), restaurants for dogs and cats and a variety of other SUPER LAME business ideas.
