Summary

When it comes to how to succeed as an entrepreneur, we are besotted with advice. According to best-selling author Alan Weiss, success is a combination of opportunism, very disciplined work, luck, timing, and ignoring most advice. In other words, it means striking out on your own original path to success.

In Million Dollar Maverick, he explains that entrepreneurs don't take advice; they create value and then monetize it. They do what they love and are great at and find a way to sell it to people. They do not - contrary to conventional wisdom - chase money. They attract money. And, most of all, they think differently, act decisively, and, if talent and timing are with them, succeed quickly.

Drawing on over 30 years of experience as a consultant, speaker, and global expert, Weiss shares his story and Million Dollar Tips not found in any of his other books to help entrepreneurs gain influence, build confidence, and develop the critical thinking skills they need to discover the inside track to rapid success.

Some good materials

If you have read an Alan Weiss book before - Million Dollar Consulting - quite a lot of the stories and examples will have a familiar ring about them.

Loved his voice

Not the typical audiobook reader for one.
His raw...hit you in the gut...and give it to you straight delivery is everything I needed. Can't wait to listen to it again.
It's like all the things your parents should say or have said but maybe you just hear it differently because it's from Alan. Ha.
Thank you Alan.

Great story

This was a great book on Mr. Weiss. He gives a lot of great perspective and insight. He brags more about himself and his accomplishments than provide a blueprint to help people that aspire to be like him, but I guess you can do that when you’re as accomplished as him.

Half Bio / Half Advice - Read by Weiss!

I got this book after finishing Dr. Weiss' Million Dollar Consulting, which was a great read. The nice part is Alan actually read this book so you get a better idea for his personality and thinking. It functions as kind of a half autobiography, half self-help book offering "mindsets" at the end of each chapter to help you grow yourself or your business. There are some redundancies with his other books, but overall this was worth the price of admission.
