Simple Tips that will help you focus your vision

I have read many books on business and marketing,
As the founding director of the Australian Acting Academy, we have long been accused, tongue in cheek, as being a cult, Largely because of the community, we have created. It sees people start as kids and 30 years later still be creating with each other.
So when I saw the title pop up on Audible, I could not resist. I mean you can listen and if it doesn't make sense, turn it off.
Well, this was not the case.
From the start to the end I was enthralled. To see my business through the lens of these IRL's made so much sense. While it was good to see how we had accidentally created such a loyal following, it was outstanding to see what we had missed, and just how easy it would be to implement it.
If you are starting a business this is a must. Lay foundations that count, don't do business for money, make a difference. You can make money as a happy bi-product.
Well done Tim, I look forward to implementing the learnings. I also bought a copy for my wife, and my son, who are each embarking on a new venture. Keep up the great work.

Best business book I've read in the last decade!

I really powered through this audiobook and loved every moment. It's easily understandable and would be enjoyable for both business veterans and anyone with a broad interest in the power of brands generally.

Plenty of case studies, great insights and practical ways to make them happen - it's spurred plenty of fantastic outside-the-box ideas that I can see myself implementing right away.

A must-listen for anyone wanting to understand how the businesses of tomorrow will thrive.

A great resource

If you thinking of transitioning to working for yourself, then this book will get you thinking about the ups and downs that your likely to come across.
It’s a starting place, a mentor’s voice and a cheerleader.

Boring and lacking insights

The narrative is really boring. Any point the author is trying to make is dragged out. It’s all the modern narrative told in self-righteous manner about renewable energy, climate change and search of elusive meaning of life… Author’s sense of self-importance is despicable as well. Yawn…

A must read if you want to make an impact!

I absolutely loved the way Tim structured this book into a really clear, step by step breakdown of how you can create a business or brand with Cult Status. All the case studies to explain each step were super interesting and inspiring! Tim has a really great voice that is calm and easy to listen to as he teaches and walks you through these steps, including the fantastic IRL (in real life) exercise sections…it’s SO GOOD!

Something a little different

It stands to reason that a book about breaking the mould when it comes to business, breaks the mould when it comes to being a book about business.

This is a really well researched book, I really enjoyed the case studies and being from Sydney myself - enjoyed a lot of the little references to places around the city.

Looking forward to checking out Tim's next book.

A bit wishy washy for me

A nice book if you want to just have a read but didn’t really take many great tools or insights from it to implement. A lot of it is about just making an impact and leading from the middle with your team etc etc. a lot of common sense stuff. Won’t change my world but didn’t harm it either.
