A step-by-step guide to enjoying the roller-coaster ride of growth -- while getting the most out of life as an entrepreneur. A growth-focused approach: The book is divided into three sections, which cover planning for fast growth, building a company for fast growth, and leading for fast growth. Each topic the author covers -- from creating a vision for the company's future to learning how to generate free PR for a developing company -- is squarely focused on the end goal: doubling the size of the entrepreneur's company in three years or less. A down-to-earth action plan: Herold's experienced-based advice never gets bogged down in generalities or theory. Instead, he offers a wealth of practical tips, including: How to design meetings for maximum efficiency; How to hire top-quality talent; How to grow in particularly tough markets; How to put together a board of advisors -- even for a smaller company; How even the busy entrepreneur can achieve a work/life balance.

I love audio books so opted for the audio version of this book - error!
I have only been listening for just over 4 minutes but I can't bare to listen to it anymore. The book is being narrated by an automated speech programme and it is truly awful.
I have bought lots of audio books in the past most of them read by the author. On the whole this adds value and a much more personal experience for the person buying the book but in this instance it has detracted so much from my experience of this book, which is a real shame.
I can't comment on the content of the book (I understand from other users that it is very good) as I have not got beyond the introduction but on the format alone I would recommend that you don't buy this - stick to the printed version.
"Enjoyable, informative and actionable!"
The fact the author gave real life situations AND solutions. I have read a lot of books that give a generic or such a general response that they don't really help those in need. This book was great all the way through and gave details on how to resolve certain issues and some useful tools, of which, I now use one called Teamly on a daily basis and it has elevated my game at work.
Rockefeller Habits or any of the Lencioni books because they all provide the story and the action items.
Yes it was.
"wish I listen to this years ago."
has some wonderful points. I know it will give me a huge ROI. worth it!
"A must read"
This book is the equivalent to the holy grail. Whether you're at the employee level or the employer level, this book will provide you with great insight to growing and scaling the business. Not only this, but Cameron does a great job at pointing out the importance of work/life balance while providing tips and tricks to mastering this balance. This book is structured in a way that one can actually structure their own business/manage based off of the material in the book.
"Cameron is the best!"
I had to keep putting it down so I could get right to work on all the great things mentioned in the book! I also going to double double on listening to it ! Great Job Cameron!
This books is excellent and full of valuable information! While listening to this book I recommend you prepar to take some notes that you can review later.
The only downside about this book is that it covers many different aspects of the business and personal life and at times I just wasn't ready to hear some of the information. I felt disconnected.
Other than that, I hope to remember to listen to this book again in about one year. :)
"Very well done, great take aways. truly enjoyed it"
Really got a lot of nuggets from the book. Great job Cam. Way to go.
A book every entrepreneur should have! Well done. Hits the target of business needs. Get it for great info now.
"Real world , usable, advice"
Not alot of pchyco-babble like a lot of books. It has stuff a business owner can acually use
"Nothing I haven't heard before"
I stopped this book about a quarter into it. It has a lot of good advice, but it's seems very canned from things I've heard before. E.g. Visualize your future, write S.M.A.R.T. goals, etc. I was hoping more concrete advice coming from real experience, not the same old rehashed stuff.
A little bit. The Narrator was good but you could tell he was reading.
Nope. Stopped it quarter the way through.
