Publisher's Summary

There's a Customer Born Every Minute reveals the lost wisdom of famous entrepreneur and showman, P. T. Barnum. Barnum was much more than a showman; he was a dedicated businessman and entrepreneur with a razor-sharp mind. In this delightful and absorbing new edition, Joe Vitale reveals the secrets of Barnum's success and shares the 10 key business practices that Barnum developed and lived by.

But this is much more than a retelling of old business wisdom. Barnum's business principles were straightforward, effective, and timeless; now, Vitale shows you how to apply and adapt those key principles to your own business. Whether you run an established company or plan to start your own entrepreneurial venture, these principles will help you achieve your goals. What worked yesterday still works today, even in the current fast-paced and highly competitive environment.

Far more entertaining that the typical business book, There's a Customer Born Every Minute is both a practical resource packed with true business wisdom and a fascinating look at one of the greatest characters - and one of the greatest business minds - in American history.

Sooooo disappointed.

I love Joe. I honestly think he is totally on my wave length. Slightly repetitive and a bit of a show off at times, but no one compares or is as inspiring. BUT this P T Barnum was a crook. I don't care how successful or famous he was, he is a liar and a cheat. Making money off innocent people. He was only successful because people didn't know better at the time. It is not relatable to modern times! The book just made me angry to be honest. I tried to clean clean clean, Ho'oponopono style, I tried to take responsibility, but I can't do business this way. I will 'return' and go back to zero happily ❤

This was one of the few Audible books that I listened all the way through. I plan on listening to it many times. It has cramed with jewels. This has wisdom for anyone.

great book,

it's an easy listen, helpful to my business. I could have done without the "putting on Barnum's head" chapter, but great book.
