Recommendation

As a fabulously successful businessman and author, millionaire Michael Masterson certainly qualifies to advise budding entrepreneurs. You can’t help but be impressed by his accomplishments, and his enthusiasm and energy are contagious. Masterson’s basic premise makes a lot of sense: don’t wait until you’ve fine-tuned your product or service. Shoot from the hip. Fire before you aim. Don’t worry about being perfect – just get it on the market. Masterson explains that early in his career, he spent too much time tweaking newsletters instead of focusing on selling them. He uses his experiences to provide instructive lessons for the reader throughout the book. The problem is that Masterson – or anyone else, for that matter – can’t give you talent or motivation. If you have the ability and drive, however, getAbstract believes that he can help you squeeze every ounce of potential from your business venture.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to turn your novel idea into a multimillion-dollar business;
  • Why you don’t need to wait for everything to be perfect to get started; and
  • Why smart entrepreneurs focus on sales.
