I read this book in college, but I wish I had read it earlier. I recommend this book both as an entertaining read as well as a motivator to start your own business.

I wish all of my business students would read this book. How inspiring and sincere! Great advice and what a role model. Thank you for writing!

A book full of wisdom and I definitely recommend it. I don't regret for a second having read it and I am actually getting ready to reread it for at least two more times.

My reservation relate to two points in the content. First, I find it funny to see how C. Johnson relays his being republican especially when it comes to commending Donald Trump. I could understand it if he did that when he reported his childhood memories, but again when he is a teenager was little surprising for me. Oh well, let

While it's a good review of entrepreneurship, and I would probably recommend it to any high school or college students I knew who were interested in starting businesses, I personally am not interested in doing so, so the book wasn't really for me. Also, the resources are pretty dated, so I hope the author's website is more current -- I checked.

Memuat pengalaman dari pengarang, Cameron Johnson, yang berhasil membuka, memimpin dan mengembangkan berbagai usaha di usia muda, almost 19-year-old.

Usaha yang dibangun sebagian besar berbasis internet atau online. The necessity is mother of idea, begitu kira-kira pendapat Johnson jika ditanya bagaimana ia memperoleh ide untuk membangun bisnis-bisnisnya.

Recommends it for: anyone in business
A book anyone who wants to have thier own business should read. Here a young boy starts his own busines and by high school is a millionare!

Lots of basic ideas, yet most of all shows what anyone can do with a plan, focus and belief.

This should be given to high school people so they can see what is possible. Also to executives so they can see the potential of people at any age.

I really enjoyed reading this autobiographical book about Cameron Johnson and his many businesses. The book is arranged so that he focuses on major principles in each chapter. Even with this the book is fairly chronological, which builds towards where he was when the book was complete.

It's a good book, but it focuses a lot on internet businesses and the attention and opportunities that Cameron was given because he started out so young. There undeniably is some good business advice in here but this book wasn't as good as I expected.
Brandon Carroll
One of the best books that I have read from a business perspective. It really is fascinating - 12 successful businesses before he is 21. Cameron knows business and this book is really inspiring to young entrepreneurs.

This book has great practical tips for anyone wanting to start their own business or even for current entrepreneurs wanting to maintain a great business. Cameron Johnson is definitely very wise for his age.
