My Review of the One Minute Entrepreneur

I am a very entrepreneurial type person. I decided to pick up the book “One Minute Entrepreneur” after stumbling across it in the book store a few weeks ago. I just couldn’t help buying it after reading a sentence on the inside fold of the book cover, “offers business people and would-be entrepreneurs a treasure trove of wisdom on how to think, act, and succeed in creating and sustaining a business”. I am always looking for extra knowledge that can help me in any way operate and grow MyWants.

The name of the book as well as the back cover essentially explains that by focusing on a few essentials, you will dramatically increase your chances of success in entrepreneurship and business. After reading through the 133 page book, it very much sticks to what it says. The book is short and to the point. There is no blabbing off of point, and there is even “One Minute Insights” at the end of each chapter to highlight the important aspects of wisdom to take away. I was particularly fond of this because I didn’t have to guess what the important parts of wisdom were in the book. They made sure to highlight it for you! This also gave me the insight of creating a category of this blog of my insights that I learn at any point of my life that I would like to share with others.

The One Minute Entrepreneur was very compact and delivers on what it says. The story line and tips are very easy to read and understand. I feel that I have truly learned something from this book and have gained a resource that I can look back to for reference to situations I may face in my entrepreneurial journey.

I will give you my top insights of this book and how some of them can be related and used in Social Media:

  • “Keep a notebook of the wisdom you read, hear, and learn, and distill that learning into One Minute Insights”. This is the perfect opportunity to create or utilize your existing blog to aggregate your learned wisdom and share it with others.
  • My favorite of all time that derives from Zig Ziggler, “You can get what you want in life if you help other people get what they want”. That is the motto and mantra of MyWants and how I will try to live my life.
