Favorite Quote: “No matter who you are, no matter what you do, no matter who your audience is: 30 percent will love it, 30 percent will hate it, and 30 percent won’t care. Stick with the people who love you and don’t spend a single second on the rest. Life will be better that way.” – James Altucher
Why We Love It: There are several keys to success. A truly great leader will inspire, motivate and help to create new leaders. One quality that a great leader will have is the ability not to listen to the doubters and negative feedback from the people around them. This is a key quality you need to have when entering the direct selling industry. Most people when starting in the direct selling industry do not have prior experience or training. Friends and family will only know you as the truck driver, store manager, accountant, etc. The people you know will be your biggest doubters and critics. Only listen to the people that will help you on your journey to success. Smart Office has the technology solutions that will help you reach success.
Book Summary: The world is changing. Markets have crashed. Jobs have disappeared. Industries have been disrupted and are being remade before our eyes. Everything we aspired to for “security,” everything we thought was “safe,” no longer is: College. Employment. Retirement. Government. It’s all crumbling down. In every part of society, the middlemen are being pushed out of the picture. No longer is someone coming to hire you, to invest in your company, to sign you, to pick you. It’s on you to make the most important decision in your life: Choose Yourself.
New tools and economic forces have emerged to make it possible for individuals to create art, make millions of dollars and change the world without “help.” More and more opportunities are rising out of the ashes of the broken system to generate real inward success (personal happiness and health) and outward success (fulfilling work and wealth).
This book will teach you to do just that. With dozens of case studies, interviews and examples–including the author, investor and entrepreneur James Altucher’s own heartbreaking and inspiring story–Choose Yourself illuminates your personal path to building a bright, new world out of the wreckage of the old. – Amazon
