    Super generic. Good introduction to online entrepreneurship, but only if you literally don't know anything about how it works. Book is a good overview, but content is super generic. For example, the chapter on building systems and teams for your business basically says: "track all the tasks you do each week, then film your self doing and explaining the task so you can train others. Then hire a great team. Yay! You've just built systems and teams to scale your business. You got this!" But thanks Super generic.

I was just hoping to go a bit (a lot) deeper.

    This is a great resource if you are trying to launch an online business based on audio, video, or written content. But the book itself drags on and verges on the hustle-porn genre. I got a lot out of this but I wouldn't recommend it to someone who wasn't specifically looking at launching a content-based website.

    I am generally pretty skeptical about these types of books, but a friend recommended it to me, and given that I am starting a business, I wanted to give it a chance. If you're unfamiliar with John Lee Dumas, he is the host of the "Entrepreneurs on Fire", a quite successful podcast. In this book, he gives him wisdom in order to be a successful entrepreneur. The book didn't start very well for me. It went into too many personal details about his life that I wasn't that interested in. And worse of al I am generally pretty skeptical about these types of books, but a friend recommended it to me, and given that I am starting a business, I wanted to give it a chance. If you're unfamiliar with John Lee Dumas, he is the host of the "Entrepreneurs on Fire", a quite successful podcast. In this book, he gives him wisdom in order to be a successful entrepreneur. The book didn't start very well for me. It went into too many personal details about his life that I wasn't that interested in. And worse of all, it kept mentioning mentorship programs over and over again. It felt like an ad to the idea and the fact that there is a fair bit of self-promotion put me off. I almost considered giving up on the book, but since it is short I figured I would finish it. Luckily the book did it better. I started to better appreciate his personal experience as an early entrepreneur, and especially what he did wrong and how we would re-do it if he could. I also liked the overall message of how he approached entrepreneurship. For example, he gave the example of his non-professional yet significant career swimming career, and how the approach he took to swimming by focusing on improving one aspect of the time can cross over the business. Best of all, I appreciated that he really focused on providing value to your audience and solving problems better than what the market is offering. It also gave some practical examples which given a business novice I really enjoyed. Some of it was somewhat technical regarding sales, such as funnels and up-selling. These were often mentioned by a successful story of someone implementing that feature into their business and how that helped them, which was a nice touch instead of being a dry marketing lesson. There were also other practical elements regarding how to get started in your business. And some of them were as practical as you can possibly get, for example, he included samples that you can study and use for emailing people that you want to partner with. I'm sure that for many people this is incredibly helpful when they're starting out as they feel overwhelmed and have no idea how to approach such things. Its practical nature, although I think should have been done to an even greater degree, was what saved the book for me. Many of them I'm sure can be applied to any business. How obvious they are for the average person I can't tell since my knowledge about this topic was close to zero, but I personally found most of them helpful. There were a few other things that I didn't like. His overall tone and personality were often a bit too aggressive and positive for me. Perhaps a weird criticism, but it almost made it seem fake at times. In addition, some concepts I found that weren't as easy to apply as the author makes it seem. For example, I really loved his "proof of concept", meaning that you should make sure there is truly a market for your idea (by for example having a pre-sale). But this is basically impossible to do before you have a big audience. There were a few factors that I wasn't a fan of this book, but despite that, it still exceeded my expectations. It was for the most part enjoyable to read, and I learned a fair bit and a fair bit of information I will be able to put into practice in a very direct manner. If you want to learn about entrepreneurship, especially if you're new, I think it's worth a read.

    Uncommon success is attainable, and the path to achieving it is available to everyone. By identifying your big idea and adapting it to provide a real solution to a niche audience, you can start creating valuable content. Mentors and mastermind groups will guide you through the inevitable obstacles. If your content production is consistent and you design worthwhile paid content, you’ll reap the benefits of sales funnels and affiliate marketing – and achieve financial freedom. And here’s some more Uncommon success is attainable, and the path to achieving it is available to everyone. By identifying your big idea and adapting it to provide a real solution to a niche audience, you can start creating valuable content. Mentors and mastermind groups will guide you through the inevitable obstacles. If your content production is consistent and you design worthwhile paid content, you’ll reap the benefits of sales funnels and affiliate marketing – and achieve financial freedom. And here’s some more actionable advice: Don’t confuse your cheerleaders with your buyers. When testing out a new idea, stay away from cheerleaders – people who say it’s a fantastic plan but don’t sign up after launch. Instead, only pursue customers who vote with their wallet. If someone has invested in the past, he’s more likely to be a buyer in the future. Send him an email with your proof of concept, and offer an early bird discount for those who pay before launch. That way, you can be sure your hard work won’t be for nothing. --- Find a mentor, and start or join a mastermind group. You’ve made it this far on the path to uncommon success, and now you’re almost ready to get started creating content for your avatar. You’re bound to encounter hurdles along the way, and for the occasional question or crisis you might be inclined to lean on friends or family for help. But, in the long run, it’s more effective to have dedicated people you go to for advice and constructive criticism. That’s where masterminds and mentors come in. A mentor has been through these early phases and faced similar challenges, so she can help you avoid some of the common pitfalls. To find the perfect mentor, you don’t need to go after famous business gurus like Richard Branson or Barbara Corcoran. Instead, just look for someone who is currently where you want to be a year from now. To narrow this down to a few concrete criteria, you can map out what your day-to-day projects entail, what audience you’re serving, and how much monthly revenue you’re generating. Then, look for entrepreneurs in your industry who’ve achieved those aims. In 2012, when the author decided to become a podcast host, he needed professional guidance. So he looked ahead to his one-year goals and sought out entrepreneurs who fit the bill; five made his short list. The author spent days consuming their content and following their social media pages. Then he reached out to his top choice, Jaime Masters, and asked if she’d be his mentor. To his surprise, she said yes! Masters, who has a successful business podcast of her own, held the author accountable for deadlines and goals. She also connected him with other entrepreneurs. An equally valuable tool is a peer-to-peer mastermind – a group of people who meet for an hour each week to share advice. A mastermind should have three or four people at similar stages in their journey, as well as a strict attendance policy. Every meeting starts with each person taking five minutes to relate their biggest success of the past week along with something they’ve learned. For the next 30 minutes, one member is in the hot seat – it rotates each week – and talks about his biggest struggle that week. The other members ask follow-up questions and discuss possible solutions. For the final ten minutes, members wrap up the meeting by stating one big goal for the upcoming week.

    As a longtime listener of the Entrepreneurs on Fire podcast, this book did not disappoint. An enjoyable and inspiring read, The Common Path to Uncommon Success feels like a coaching conversation with JLD himself. He delivers value bomb after value bomb using his own personal stories of how he built the Fire Nation empire. Although many of his anecdotes relate to podcasting, the concepts and recommendations are 100% applicable to anyone starting (or contemplating) a new venture in life.

I especially appreciated the transparency in which he recalls specific routines, processes, people, and services that contributed to his success. I'm certain that I'll be referring back this book for years to come.

He gives very practical solutions to common online marketing problems and suggestions for any aspiring entrepreneur.

    Most comprehensive book on this topic that I have come across! Thank you! For now my biggest takeaways as I think about where I am: - Niche down and keep doing it - I now feel better about my diversified income streams after hearing what you have to say: my book, coaching, speaking, affiliate income and should consider an online course. - Go all in I keep hearing you say in my head Thanks so much for an outstanding book!

    I’ve listened to JLD’s podcast off and on over the years and have always been impressed by how much he gets done (who does a daily podcast anyways?!). I bought this book as I explore launching something myself and I’ll say it was extremely helpful and practical. This would be a go-to resource for anyone looking to start a content business!

    This is a great summary on starting a content-marketing business! It should work for podcasts, youtube & blogging. I like his aggressive = take no prisoners style of hard truth. Its the kick in the butt some people (like myself) need do the work necessary to make it happen. The style is quite different than any other I've listened to on the topic. Great book!

    Motivating and helps to identify my thoughts into a more finite view to understand who my avatar is and how to create the solution for the problems my avatar has. Lastly and worth the cost of the book is the Well of Knowledge at the end of the book. Tons of inspiration to come back to for when I need a quick pick-me-up.

    It seems like every modern internet entrepreneur writes the same book. I gave up after 3-4 chapters and skimmed the rest. Nothing new here. The writing is extremely dull and boring because the author is dull on boring. These people giving 5 star reviews for soulless crap like this are deluded. There is no roadmap. If you want a roadmap, get a job!

    A great starting point for new entrepreneurs. It's written for those wanting to start a podcasting career but loads of the information is transferrable to any other business. He is repetitive in the messaging and for that reason I give the book a lower rating. A great starting point for new entrepreneurs.

    Great if you want to be a Podcaster or Content Producer This is great if you want do be a content producer of some kind… it’s 100% applicable then. But if you’re in other fields, it’s less applicable in my opinion, though it still has good points.

So whether you've been in business for a while, or you're just starting, this is a must-read. I started my business over a year ago and I just wish that I had read this sooner.
