** In some ways it reminds me of Ready, Fire, Aim Ready, Fire, Aim: Zero to $100 Million in No Time Flat (Agora Series) but I like this one a little bit better. **
The author talks about how if you were going somewhere but waited till all the lights were green before you left the house, you would never leave. He also talked about how you could cross the country at night with just your headlights providing illumination. You would never know what was way up ahead but just as in business if you know where you want to go you can get there if you keep working at it, even if you don't see the whole path ahead of you yet.
** Some of the other good stuff is how you plan what you want to achieve in life, break it down to a strategy of what you want in 20 years, then break that down to what you want in the next year and use a 6 month or year as a tactic for gradually moving towards your long term goal. But he also shows how to use a daily goal or weekly plan to achieve your 6 month or yearly goal. In other words you break down your plans into daily, achievable bites that add up over time. **
Things like Passive Income are discussed and how to implement them into your life and business.
It takes a lot for me to be really impressed but this young man has produced a lot of wisdom in this book. I just hate how some people put it down without even reading it. They should be ashamed of themselves.Read more ›

As I mentioned, this sounded like one of those "try my method and you'll always succeed" titles. These are generally the people who are making most of their money from selling their "methods" and not actually doing what they talk about. :) Anyway, Allis starts out by talking about the path he took from repairing PCs as a 12 year old in 1998 to running a software company tallying nearly $7 million in sales in 2007.Read more ›
You get the picture. There is a reason this book is selling for pennies used on Amazon.
Basically, I've read through "New Venture Creation" and this book was like a "lite" version of that book. It has excellent information and it keeps you motivated to read the entire book, unlike other books based on Entrepreneurship.
Look... this book costs less than $12.00 and it's worth SO much more. If you're serious about building ANY kind of "serious" business online, this book is excellent!
And, I must state that I have NEVER met Ryan Allis in my life...I've heard of his business a million times - but never his name. You can be like "the guy" who always believes something is fishy because his opinion is different, or you can check out the book for $12.00 + S&H, and you'll be able to see for yourself.
