worth every page
Stayc the casual reader
Any new online business needs this!
I seriously LOVE this book. So much insight into how to run a business online and hearing it from the best of the best. The best book I have bought for my business.
Lots of insight and helpful info
This is a great reference book, and I know that I'll dip into it regularly.
This is a MUST READ for any budding Entrepreneur.
Fantastically helpful for start up entrepreneurs and ones who've been at it for a while too!
Not your usual, run of the mill, same old formulas for success rehashed, book. This is an interesting insight into some of the best modern day business minds.
Funny, interesting and a pleasure to read.
Easy to understand and not full of technical mumbo jumbo.
Fun and engaging
I read this book on my recent holiday so I could see how these Entrepreneurs turned their ideas into a reality. I always have ideas but the little voices tell 'they're stupid'! This book showed me that the best Entrepreneurs all had doubts, but pushed through them to create multi-million dollar businesses. It's never too late to start. A great read, with humour and very insightful stories.
I really wanted to like this book!
A very watered down version of the "4 hour work week" with none of the depth or utility. Was really disappointed that the book contained no Australia specific information on online business taxation, postage, distribution etc.
"Come up a TLA (three letter acronym) - "it will make you look smart." Really!
The book is both easy to read and provides practical insights on how to identify your niche in the market and then successfully position yourself online.
A great reference that you can go back to again and again.
Brilliantly written book
Bernadette captures the essence of building online businesses but more-so enunciates an incredible level of knowledge and tips for all businesses whose online presence is critical for success.
Its written in a down to earth and humorous manner. I especially gained break-through insight and direction from the "Profile" chapter - showing how to structure your purpose and reason for setting up your business.
