Saw this man on a TED Talk video in Christ's Church New Zealand. He's changed my life and has given me a moral justification for - and an inspiration towards - the pursuit of entrepreneurship in my future. This is the history of his development of Enterprise Facilitation, which led to his other book: How to Start a Business and Ignite Your Life. I ended up buying that one too.
As well, if you've ever learned something to more than an amateur degree, you realize that there are major categories that you can use to make learning easier. For instance, I study chemistry, so we categorize material into Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical, Analytical, Polymer and so forth.
He does the same. He breaks all forms of entrepreneurship into 3 major areas: Make it, Sell it, and Look after the Money. Obviously, there's quite a bit of in depth information in each area, but those categories make learning it easier. It's all done through the form of story telling, which not only demonstrates a real-life use of his technique, but it keeps it interesting for those of us with short attention spans. I definitely recommend it to those interested in entrepreneurship, and you should also look up the video: Want to Help Someone -- Shut Up and Listen!
There's the link. The most inspirational 17 minutes of my life. He's a master story-teller in my eyes, and the accent makes it perfect. I ended up reading the entire book while imagining him telling me the story in his Italian accent.
