Just OK

I did not enjoy the reader. The book also focused more on not-for-profit than I was hoping for. In general it did not go into depth as much as I wanted it to go.

Painful to listen to.

It’s like listening to a four hour sales pitch. Unbearable to listen and not want to punch the narrator. The content has not been very informative and basically reminds you every two minutes to know your applicable laws and regulations and not hold the authors liable. Don’t waste your time.

Too Much Business 101

As a small business owner, this book covered topics I already know very well and did not provide enough detail or hard earned knowledge about the marijuana business.

Not a mind settler

I stop listening when they discourage indirectly by saying business plans are difficult. Not what I want to have as a mind set when opening a business. Yet, maybe they have lot of experience in marijuana, but not in business success kinda look like.

Great overview of key ideas and strategies

Before listening to this book I felt like I was groping around in the dark trying to figure out what to focus on first. But this book does such a great job in outlining the path towards a great quality business strategy.
