Want more success? Then Keep Learning!!!
Studies have repeatedly shown that the most successful business owners are those who are constantly learning new ideas. The good news is there are lots of great business books out there - the challenge for most of us is finding the time to actually read them.
That's where Aspire's Business Book Reviews come in. This is going to be a regular event where you will be able to pick up the key ideas and themes from a great business book...and get some ideas on how to start applying those to your business right away.
And the best part? You don't even need to read the book! We'll cover the key points, have a great group discussion and get you on your way. You'll walk out with a several page summary, some new knowledge and introductions to like-minded business owners and professionals who also want to learn and be successful!
It's kind of early - but we'll have coffee and breakfast for you and you'll be on your way, smarter, happier and better looking than you were before (well at least smarter and happier). We guarantee it!
This Month's Book - The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson
As much as we all love stories about 'overnight' success, about hitting it big and winning the lottery, the reality is that if you want to consistently win and build something great, it takes time, effort and consistency.
That's the message behind The Slight Edge.
Turning Simple Discipline into Massive Success
Have you ever experienced a New Year's Resolution that didn't pan out? Perhaps you were absolutely committed to the idea that this year is the year you were going to...lose weight, get healthy, make more money, have better relationships...etc.
Most of us who have tried making a big sweeping change like that found ourselves falling back into bad habits within a few weeks. If you've ever experienced that kind of frustration, it's because you weren't using the Slight Edge.
Author Jeff Olson lays out a compelling case for a very simple approach to driving success that anyone can do. In fact, it's so simple that you're likely to dismiss it, but once you really understand what he's talking about, it's clear that almost no one actually puts this simple idea into action. Don't confuse simple with easy...and just because it's simple doesn't mean it's not hugely effective.
It doesn't matter what kind of change you're trying to make in your life or your business - the principles behind The Slight Edge will drive you to success...if you can stay focused and disciplined enough to apply them consistently.
This is a fantastic book and well worth your time to read and it's even better to discuss it with other business owners...and that's what Business Book Reviews are all about!
Here are a few comments from previous Business Book Reviews:
“I thought this was extremely valuable. It was very inspirational and my head is already spinning with ideas and things I want to implement.”
"I've had the opportunity to attend many events and this was one of the more informative and relevant one's I've attended. The book had some great information, however, your insights and the way you presented the material were even more helpful. I have to be selective on how I spend my time and this was a great investment."
“This really added a dynamic to the way I would have been able to think about and comprehend the material on my own.”
You'll get a lot out of reading The Slight Edge... and you'll get even more by joining into the Business Book Review discussion! Guaranteed!
Who Should Attend?
Business leaders and professionals who have a need to keep learning, but don't have the time nor the inclination to read...or just realize they will get even more out of the discussion of the material than just reading it (i.e. a lot of smart people we know)!
How does it work?
We'll keep it simple - come in at 8:00, Aspire will provide breakfast (something tasty - bagel, pastry, kolache...) and some coffee and we'll get rolling. You'll have a few minutes to meet the other attendees and then we'll dive into the review and discussion of the book. About 1/2 the time will be spent covering the key ideas and the other 1/2 will be more of a group discussion.
We're limiting the group size to 35, small enough so everyone can participate, but large enough to have a lively exchange with lots of different viewpoints and ideas.
We'll close on time and get you on with your day, secure in the knowledge that you now know more...and will be more successful, have more fun, feel taller...all the good stuff. ;-)
If for any reason you don't feel like you learned at least a couple of useful new ideas, then you will get a complete and cheerful refund...and get to keep your summary!
Come Join Us - we look forward to seeing you.
