Straight to the point...

Too few authors opt to teach through a relatable story. Robin has managed to create an engaging story, full of advice and methodology, whilst not having it read like just another self-help book... Let action commence!

Some great gems to takeaway from this book!

I actually listened to this book in one go! It kept me gripped wondering what was next!
I'm going to re-listen a few more times! It's definitely motivated me.
Thanks Robin! Well done 😁

Bloody brilliant - a must listen.

I’ve recently listened to Go For No, and The Go Giver which are both written in a story form and this book is certainly up there with them.

This book has helped me focus on my marketing and no doubt the learnings will increase our turnover.

Thanks Robin.

If your self employed read this book

Such an inspiring book, set differently by means of a story but still integrated all the relevant business ideas and requirements needed. Within minutes I have already started making changes to my business, thanks Robin

Hole in one

A novel way to explain processes and mindsets. Robin makes everything easy to digest and inspires you to take stock of what you’re doing, why and how. The more you think about it, the more you think, ‘obviously, it’s common sense… why am I not doing this?’.
This book is for anybody that has or want’s to take control over their own future, highly recommended.

Inspiring

The narrator/author does a good job keeping your attention, and presenting his point. I have listened to the book twice now. Gives you things to think about within your own business

Engaging and relatable

I definitely recommend listening to this audio book twice! Lots of gold nuggets which I believe will assist service based businesses greatly.

The book is unique in its fictional form of writing and engages with the reader/listener. Refreshing and unique style of writing.

Would certainly recommend.

Well done!

Robin leaves his business principles into a simple story it keeps you entertained and educate you the same. Well done!
Read the book, people. You'll learn goal setting, business strategy, implementation, and scaling. The short bonus talk at the end where robin goes over his own story is a nice touch.

A must read for anyone who is starting their business

If you are starting your own business and specifically coaching or adding value to people through providing a service, this book is a must read/listen. The story was engaging and thoughtful. The insights were spot on and doable. I could not take notes fast enough and will be order the physical book just to have it for reference.

An engaging story that will impact your business

What did you love best about Take Your Shot?

Take Your Shot, reminded me of one of my favorite business books E-Myth. It's packed with timeless business principles presented in such a way that is is memorable and actionable. There is so much in this 2-hour story.

What did you like best about this story?

The fact that it is a story. Most business books are hard to listen to and capture everything. Take Your Shot I believe is better on Audible, especially when read by the author Robin Waite who has a great narration.

What does Robin Waite bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The authors calm British accent was a pleasure to listen to. His personal recap at the end really allowed me to understand his heart and the next steps.

Any additional comments?

I listen to about a business book a week. I most highly recommend TAKE YOUR SHOT by Robin Waite.
