    Great story about the two guys that started Say Yes to Carrots. I listened to this book on audible and their accents are very charming. They have great life stories and really keep things in perspective. Both of them are focused on giving back and living virtuous lives but they are also tons of fun.

    Good story and lessons, light on difficulties I feel like they glossed over the real work and difficulties but there is a lot of real experience on display. This is a great read for any entrepreneur.

    There was a lot of hype around this book but I found it somewhat disappointing. To me it came across more as group of stories and experiences rather than in depth look at business. Don;t get me wrong, the stories are interesting and relevant but not as in depth as I was lead to believe from the reviews. I think that I would have liked to have seen a bit more of the thinking behind the whole business development and what went on in the minds of the authors.

I think that I would have liked to have seen a bit more of the thinking behind the whole business development and what went on in the minds of the authors. They tell their story with plenty of emotion and maybe that is what the business success has been. Maybe, I would have been more satisfied with a third party telling the story and making the observations rather than the founders? I can't quite put my finger on exactly what is missing for me with this book. I think it is still an interesting read and well worthwhile to understand the process that the writers have gone through in developing their business and making it a success. There is certainly something that you can learn from that. In summary, to me this book is more a story than something on business development. That doesn't make it any less worthwhile but it was not quite to the level I was personally expecting.

    At first glance, the title of this book would seem to indicate that it's a "How to make it big in business" guide, but it's not.

Ido and Lance are the 29 year old founders of this company. This book is an in-depth picture of these Ido and Lance - who they are, where they came from, how they started, how they handled the bumps in the road, their personal and business philosophies - all in their own words. They are both very candid and very funny so even though this wasn't the book I expected, I enjoyed every second of it. These two men come from such different backgrounds, it's fascinating seeing how they interact and approach the challenges and successes they've encountered building their company. If you know this isn't a "How to make it big" book, but would enjoy getting to know some guys who did, I think you'll enjoy this book as much as I did.

    I received this book as a First Reads. I was concerned at first it was going to be a slow boring how to succeed in business type of read. However, almost immediately the narrative grabs you and pulls you in for a very enjoyable time. Honestly, I felt like I was shooting the bull with Ido and Lance as they told the story of how they rapidly came to be the Number 2 Natural Health and Beauty product business in the industry.

Oh, the advice and wisdom is still there, you just don't feel like you are being lectured, but rather being let in on a wonderful secret. I highly recommend for any entrepreneur.

    This was a very solid book on how to hone your entrepreneur instincts and how to act on opportunities. It wasn’t a step by step guide on how to become a success but I don’t really think that is possible to create. I learned some useful things from the Yes To guys. It was very interesting to take a look at their experiences and try to apply it to my situation and use their knowledge in my own flexible plan. I recommend this book as a short quick read that should be used as a case study rather tha This was a very solid book on how to hone your entrepreneur instincts and how to act on opportunities.

    I picked this up to tap into some entrepreneurial thinking after a few years in a corporate setting. I think there are several lessons in the energetic stories that the authors tell. A few of my takeaways: Be authentic. Be determined and have an energy level to match it. Go after big wins even if you don't know how you'll deliver. Brand the hell out of your product. This isn't a business strategy book. It's a story of determination and resourcefulness. It's a good read.

    Know the authors story first I guess the book would have been more impactful on me if I would have know the authors story before hand. I wasn't familiar with them or their company and I was expecting more of personal and career, business growth book instead of a biographical one about the authors and their partnership. Was a difficult read since my expectations were not in tune with the over all theme.

    More of a memoir about the founding of Yes To, 'Get Big Fast' got better as it went on, partly because the beginning sections are loaded with biographical info on the two founders. Once you get into the meat of Yes To's growth years, the lessons learned come fast. I took notes, which to me is a sign of a strong nonfiction work.

    Great book Lots of valuable information, and well written. Non-fiction page-turner. No regrets at all of spending time on it. Will recommend to friends. Should be translated in other languages!!

    Nothing earth-shatteringly new here about running a company, but an entertaining read nevertheless. They make a solid effort to run their business with heart and integrity, which is noteworthy.
