Summary

In late 2014, internationally acclaimed blogger and podcaster Chris Ducker coined the term “Youpreneur” to describe the rise of the personal brand entrepreneur, a new business model that very few people saw coming. Since then, the Youpreneur has risen to the top across sectors.   

A Youpreneur transcends the old rules of business and builds a sustainable business from the foundation of their experience, interests, and personality - their personal brand. Youpreneurs draw an engaged, loyal audience even as they pursue varying, changing interests. They play by their own rules, and they reap the benefits.   

Ready to pivot for the last time, guarantee the success of your business, and become the go-to leader in your industry? Chris Ducker will show you how to develop the business of you and build a future-proof business model.

Great for new starts in personal branding a freshen up for those who have already begun

I liked that it solidified what I’m already doing is moving me in the right direction and reinforcing more areas that I must continue to build on.

Great if you are new to personal branding and its capabilities and possibilities of what it can do for your business and income.

Value Bomb Central!

Chris always gives great value, whether it's on his website, podcast or his books, and this (audio) book is jam packed of helpful tips and ideas on how to build the brand of you. Even better than his first book (which also rocked)!

Comprehensive Guide to Youpreneurship

I have been listening to Chris Ducker's podcast for a while. I never really understood the regular path that society sets out so looked for some alternative way to enjoy life (and pay for any incurred costs) which led to the creation of a micro online business based on a dice game that more or less pays the bills. I have understood the concepts of passive income for a long while and proved to myself it can be done. I thought I understood what Chris Ducker talks about with youpreneuership too, until I heard Chris reading the opening chapter earlier tonight. I did not actually 'get it' as I thought I had. Youpreneurship is not the same as entrepreneurship at all. It is something much more beautiful.

Chris gives "value bombs" throughout this audiobook, which serves as a comprehensive guide to everything you need to do to succeed with your business: "the business of YOU".

Excellent, thank you very much.

Ear opening experience

First I bought the e-book and read it fast. After meeting Mr Ducker at Youpreneur Summit I wanted the hard cover to read in the evenings and to use as manual going back there from time to time, kind of slow version of enjoying the book. But what amazed me is that listening to the same book, it is still a new experience, I keep paying attention to new things. I could say that I have thoroughly consumed the piece. It includes very implementable step by step advice and I keep learning.

Ducker inserted into your ear buds

Man when I first read rise of youpreneur, I fell in love with the ducker brand even more than ever. Now for people who struggle to find the time to read or prefer to listen to a reading of a book, you too can reap the benefits of this very informative book.

I am so happy to have the chance to digest this book again by listening to voice of the man himself, Chris Ducker

Outstanding

If you are serious about being a youpreneur, do yourself a big favor and get yourself a copy or download the audio version.

In a world packed with "get-rich-quick" formulars and gurus left, right and center, this book truly stands out.

I believe this book offers you everything you need to succeed. While it’s still entirely up to you to put in the work, the book has laid out a simple path for you to follow.

Even if you are “just” looking for some simple and applicable online or marketing tactics, it’s also worth reading.

I love the simplicity and the impact of the postcard. SO simple, yet nobody does it.

Bullet point tips

This is the fastest book I’ve ever listen to. I couldn’t stop listening to Chris talk about bullet point, action based tips. I’d recommend this book to beginning solopreneurs or anyone at the point of starting a brand. I wish I would have bought physical book but does offer a companion outline. Either way physical book or audiobook is a winner

Well worth my time

I seldom write reviews. And I was not paid to write this review in any way. I just wanted to say "thank you." There are a lot of books out there with philosophical or general ideas, but this book provided me with many specific tasks to help me. I am always a bit skeptical of "sales" and "marketing" books, but this one worked well for me.

Ducker nails it. Practical Application abounds!

And a digital marketing landscape that is stained by silver bullets, magic pills and snake oil salesman. Docker gives a book full of practical applications and real life case studies that you can really sink your teeth into.

Can’t ask for much more than that these days.

Great message and great content.

I am a small business owner and this book is a perfect fit for me and my business. If you are a solopreneur, freelance or small business owner I suggest you read this book or listen to the audio book. There are so many useful contents and concepts that will help you think deeper about your business, how to improve it and move to the next level. It will give you a much better awareness about yourself, your business and the relation with your customers. The book is really inspiring and you will also find a lot of practical suggestions and tips. Personally I got the audiobook and was very happy about the narration done in person by author Chris Ducker. On top of having a very clear and easy to listen voice (with a nice British accent!) the added value is the deep passion that you can hear from every sentence he reads.

This is the book I've been waiting for!

Wow, this is the what I've been waiting for and I didn't even realize it. I've been looking to start an online business but never considered the possibility of a personal brand. The super practical information in this book has given me the confidence to step out. I can't wait to put what I've learned to work! Chris literally takes you through the process, step-by-step. I would recommend taking advantage of the moments he asks you to do some work as you go along. It will be tempting to fly through the entire book. If you do, make sure you go back through and put in the work in. It will be worth it!
