Refreshingly different

If you are tired of reading the same entrepreneur advice and looking for something different, this book does not disappoint. If anything it will make you think about what you value and your 'why'. I'm struggling to find my one word, which surprised me and made me question everything I do. When a book makes you reflect deeply weeks after you've finished it, I believe it's worth its weight in gold.

Totally worth the listen

Evan is very thorough, covering everything to consider going into business of your own.
Some parts will be great to hear over & over.
He’s true to his word and I found mine, thanks to him.

Finished in one day! <3

I love that Evan is reading the book himself and you can feel the passion behind the screen. It's not just motivational book, it's a book full of tools and exact steps which you can follow and grow. Find your One Word and get ready to change yourself and the world!

Thank you Evan, one more time, for putting your knowledge in these pages. It's gonna have a special place on my bookshelf and I know I'm going to read it more than once.

It's obvious that people are going to recognize value of this book and I'm excited to see it conquer the world! <3

Please #BELIEVE that Evan Carmichael Delivers!

Would you consider the audio edition of Your One Word to be better than the print version?

I am not sure about the print version versus the audio version. I only have the audio at this point.

What other book might you compare Your One Word to and why?

This book reminds me of Radicals and Visionaries because of the stories told about successful entrepreneurs.

What about Evan Carmichael’s performance did you like?

There is nothing better than hearing it straight from Evan. It's authentic.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I most definitely wanted to listen all in one sitting, but it is wise to digest a bit then take a break (as Evan suggests).

Any additional comments?

After listening to this book, I feel closer than ever to achieving my goal of being a successful motivational speaker who #inspires others to grow and achieve their personal best! I watch and listen to Evan daily on You Tube - this book is long overdue!

Notes!

I follow Evan Carmichael on his YouTube channel, recently on Snapchat and now I’ve completed his book. Somehow he makes you feel like he’s a close friend sharing great advice. Tip! Take notes! then apply! You will find this book to be inspirational with much great information that will lay a foundation for you to start or help expand on your already present ideas. What’s your one word? Feel it! Own it! Live it!

Thank you Evan Carmichael... if you had a book two out I would already be listening to it.

Good but stretched

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Not repeating his client as much, and not attaching the net worth on his client to their quotes

Would you ever listen to anything by Evan Carmichael again?

yes, but I would be very selective

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Your One Word?

Client net worth

Any additional comments?

this book have a very good core, but it was covered a lot with repetitive data.
I believe it could be much shorter

Life changing book! A must read!

This book describes how "Your One Word" can help you achieve your goals. It contains all the exact steps you need to know to create a business and a life that matters. It also contains real world examples of people who have used their "One Word" to create a great impact in the word.

I really liked that Evan is reading the book himself as you can feel his passion. I went to work by feet only to listen more every day of this book.

Thank you Evan :). Much Success #BelieveNation

This is a game changer!

This book will help you find or remember your North Star and live by it. This is a great book for discovering you driving force in your life. A lot of time we do things when we're successful but don't realize why or what brought it about but this book will help you figure that out.

Not ideal for audible

Lots of great info, but you really need to be able to write stuff down, analyze, and answer the questions. I listen to books while I run and this was not ideal.

Was kind of all over the place with the information and not very precise.

I love the YouTube videos much better!

It’s a book that makes you to take action.

He pushes you from the I would like to do kind of thinking to the do it now mode and don’t make more excuses. Evan uses many point of references from many icons millionaires figures which amazed me because makes you know that he has taken the time to read and learn from all of them. Pretty smart guy with a fresh content and ideas to make you act.

Very powerful!

I have listened to Evan’s YouTube channel for awhile. I just got this book the other day. If this book doesn’t inspire you to want to get your life to the next level, I’m not sure what will. Thank you Evan! #Believe

Wow, I loved this book so much! I wish I had the chance to read it when I started as entrepreneur. My business would have been so much stronger. BUT, it’s never too late to change! And I believe it will have a huge impact! Thank you so much Evan!

Helped me to nail down my vision/purpose/direction

If you're like me your mind is constantly working and going in every direction at once. 'Your One Word' helped me to narrow down and nail down my one vision/purpose/direction = #Freedom!
The book helped me connect many ideas I'm pursuing or interested in under one goal: financial independence, outsourcing, minimalism, decluttering (Kon Mari method), minimal wardrobe, self-driving cars etc.
Everyone needs one Word to describe their north star in life and work. This one word guides your life journey and helps you connect with people who share that one word.

Highly recommended!

Evan really is a good example of a "LEADER".

Evan has a special way of Infusing Charisma (my 1 word btw 😉) in people. I really loved the book, the whole of it.

Thanks Evan.👍🏽

I Wasn't Expecting This Book To Change Paradigms..

...but it did!

This is an excellent book. No, I really mean it. I wasn't expecting much. Just another 'you can do it' book. But the whole 'one word' thing really had my heart pounding. And when my heart starts pounding it's because deep down something inside has been touched with a magic wand....

Yesterday I purchased this audio book. Today I'm finding my one word🤗

Hard copy essential

While the book is a great resource, motivating and encapsulates EC's experiences into a compact book, I would recommend a hard copy book so you can refer back and make notes to sections that can be applied to your own journey. That will most definitely be my next purchase.
