Summary

Do you have dreams of becoming an entrepreneur? Are you tired of working for the big man and want to become your own boss? Are you afraid to invest in a business and then fail?

If you relate to any of these questions, then this audiobook can help guide you and make you feel at ease about everything you will need to know and change to help you become a successful entrepreneur.

In our society today, we are overwhelmed with information on successful startups like Uber and Airbnb, but we are also overwhelmed with information on unsuccessful startups. These horror stories are what makes us nervous as we don’t want to be one of those business owners that loses hundreds of thousands of dollars.

I can’t assure you that you won’t be faced with failures during your journey of entrepreneurship, but what I can assure you is that I can teach you all the tools and skills you need to prevent as many failures as you can and to overcome the ones that are inevitable.

What people regularly forget is that an entrepreneur isn’t a person that is knowledgeable in everything or is a genius; they are simply people who have extremely high self-discipline and have adopted the right mindset.

Here is what this audiobook will help you with:

  • Understanding financial intelligence - what is it, and how can you accomplish it?
  • Building strong self-discipline - step-by-step guide on achieving this
  • Strengthening and widening your mindset - keeping a growth mindset and letting go of your fixed mindset
  • Building healthy habits that will serve your entrepreneurial goals - what habits do successful entrepreneurs have and how can you build them?
  • Improving your skills related to finance and your business - two strategies to help you learn skills faster and to achieve more
  • Stopping procrastination once and for all - why do entrepreneurs procrastinate, and how can you not be one of them?
  • Learning to become a competent money manager; understanding income statements, balance sheets, and cash flows
  • Basic financial must-knows; learning about ROI, margin, BEP, fixed/variable costs and how to calculate these important figures
  • How to increase your sales; various strategies and components to keep in mind
  • How to reduce your expenses; tips and tricks to lower your business expenses
  • Financial management; how to avoid bad financial decisions and choosing the right accounting method for your business
  • Getting rid of your failure mentality; understanding the causes of people who fail and have low discipline
  • Additional tips and tricks to help you become a successful entrepreneur

These topics will work hand in hand to not only strengthen your financial literacy, but your core mindset and work ethic to ensure that you are out working and outsmarting all of your competitors. This audiobook will also teach you to become the most resilient business owner out there, what other businesses see as permanent failures are learning opportunities for you.

Understood the process of building a business

The author clearly understood the process of building a business, and knows how to get outside investors interested in a start-up. One interesting viewpoint the author held was that VCs are the most expensive financial aid a start-up can find, and offered alternatives to getting VC's funding. In the end the author addresses ways an entrepreneur can be really paid off for the efforts invested, both by way of IPO and by non-IPO means. In general, I find this audiobook very helpful to help one understand many faces of starting up.

GREAT FI BOOK! From a 7 figure entrepreneur!

This is a great book for beginners and entrepreneurs about financial intelligence. As someone who has started and sold 1 7 figure business and started 2 additional 6 figure businesses I've found that I'm decent at entrepreneurship and making money but less so in my own personal finances. Having an incredible business idea happens to lots of entrepreneurs and "wantrepreneurs." But alot of times we dont understand things like net margin. you have to KNOW your numbers and this book teaches that for your personal finances and business finances and much much more.

Great Starting Guidebook

This is a fantastic audiobook for someone looking to start investing on Business. It does a great job of not just explaining how everything works, but teaching the listener how to go about trading. One point that I really like about this audiobook is that it is not a sales pitch. A lot of Financial Intelligence audiobook today have an underlying sales pitch to purchase an authors program. Not this audiobook. It instead gives a broad overview of the market while touching on a few key strategies that have a proven track record.

Useful for people with 0 knowledge of Entrepreneur

Best use for this audiobook is as a weekend crash-course in markets & Entrepreneur who know next to nothing. He does a good job of explaining the more modern developments in investing like ETFs and Index funds, but beyond this, you really need to do more research into the specific investment tools. There is a segment on robo -advisors as well, but again you'll need to use this as a basic intro then do further research. I recommend novices to listen the audiobook,
