Recommends it for: entrepreneurs, small business owners, people with the dream of teaching others
Inspirational without all the rah-rah fluff. Best part of the whole book? The Expert Signposts. They ask questions that lead to actionable answers. I'm probably the most motivated I've ever been after reading a "self-help" type book.

Having said that, Burchard does mention his Experts Academy A LOT. I'm sure this has to do with the psychology of selling and marketing but dang, for those of us who are savvy to such techniques, seeing the reference to EA over and over can get a little annoying.

I thought this was one of the strongest business books that I've read on starting your own business, becoming an expert and getting your message out. Brendon inspired me on many levels. I feel that is approach is very accessible. In fact, he almost makes it appear easy with regards to making lots of money from doing what you love. Since he is a living example of what he's talking about, I find it to be very empowering.

The thing I liked best about the Millionaire Messenger, is that Brendon understands the entrepreneurial mind. He knows what the entrepreneur wants to achieve and even how they want to achieve it. He then breaks that down with step-by-step directions on what the entrepreneur needs to do to achieve that, and focuses mostly on the thought processes necessary to do that.

On the downside, the book falls short on exacting steps to, for example, set up a website, though, as he says, there are plenty of
This stellar how-to gives all of us the principles and practices to help others and improve our own lives by sharing our expertise. In fact, in this book, Brendon shares a significant amount of his own multi-million-dollar expertise quite freely, and reading it will no doubt catapult you into action on your own.
I wouldn't have founded and begun working in earnest on my own book if I hadn't attended a four-day intensive with him (and 800 experts in a wide variety of

Brendon has worked with some of the biggest stars in the self-help industry and he has the right approach- a heart based, servant leadership approach. The only thing that ...more

“The Millionaire Messenger: Make a Difference and a Fortune Sharing Your Advice” by Brendon Burchard is a good outline of how to make money sharing and selling information. The book focuses on becoming an expert and capitalizing on that information with your story to build a profitable information or expert business.

In Burchard's plan, he teaches that you need to have low level introductory products that lead a person to higher paying products and services such as coaching and high fee seminars.

As we are creating course for freelancers for the very first time, this book really moved me, taught me lot of great ideas and affirmed lots of things which are important when helping other people succeed.

What I enjoyed in this book:

- Lots of actionable questions, I will return to, when we'll continually keep improving our own product
- Simple language, it was down to earth and really easy, yet powerful reading changing my thoughts.

What I learned?:

- Importance of always providing value, not

"The Millionaire Messenger" provides an excellent and executable framework for how to take your knowledge, productize it, promote it and sell it. The book's real strength are the 13 or so "sign-post" exercises (as part of his 10-step plan) that Burchard has you run through. These exercises help you determine what you know, how it can bring value to others and how to get started. His 10-step plan consists of: Determining your topic, picking your audience, determining the needs of that audience, ...more

Brendon Burchard has boiled down everything a person needs to become an Expert. His step-by-step approach really appeals to my sense of needing to follow a plan. He not only shows you how to create content in your area of expertise but also provides a useful formula for making a good deal of money using this expertise. The steps are clear and informative and are followed by a series of questions that he calls Expert Signposts. They allow the reader to then define their own message and customer ...more

I was going to give this book three, perhaps four stars, until I read the last chapter--Trusting Your Voice.
Learning to trust my voice has been incredibly significant to me. Learning to trust the value of my life, my contribution and my experiences, have made and will make a massive difference in my life. And it will for many others.
I'm glad I read this book, if only for that one chapter alone--it got through to me.

Last night, I had a terrible, unpleasant experience with productivity guru, Brendon Burchard.
On January 29th, he sent out an email saying - You all loved transformation week so much that we’ve decided to share my ENTIRE Wellness Master Class with you at NO COST over the next 10 days. I’m sharing the ENTIRE course via my podcast as well as via video on this page. But fair warning: Each episode is only up for 72 hours, so enjoy it now.
Fast forward to yesterday, no new email sent out about Day 3,

This is an odd little book. The first part sounded almost exactly like many webinars I've heard over the years. Personal stories. A vision of the incredible wealth and success you could have. Financial calculations based on rather dodgy assumptions indicating how easy it could be for you to become massively wealthy. I suspect he has given a great many webinars sounding almost exactly like this, and could have just had one recorded and lightly edited to create into another audiobook to line his ...more

This book holds many motivational and relatable facts about how to be an expert. Many holes surface however on deeper grounds. For example Burchard explains two different types of people, one who dig for gold. When they don’t find enough from one spot they dig another. And another. Finally they have a lifetime of half dig holes. The other type of person is one who sticks to their one hole and digs it their whole life, with the thought that persistence will dig you deep enough in experience that ...more

A practical guide to becoming an 'Expert' or 'Guru'. He lifts the curtain on the Expert Industry in a way that hasn't been done before, giving practical steps as to how to make your first million if you are starting out from scratch. It's fascinating and exciting, and I can't wait to see the next generation of Experts that are born in this books wake. He really made me believe that everyone has a powerful message to share and that making a money sharing your message and doing what you love could ...more

This was the missing link in my studies to become a coaching, teaching people what I know. Brendon has such a unique way of describing the gap between wanting to get started in the ‘experts’ industry and actually getting started. He takes the reader through his journey, but also incorporates many other folks who have gone from zero to becoming known in their niche. It’s a must read for the upcoming entrepreneur.

I'm deeply grateful to Brendon for writing this book which makes the model of helping people with what I've learned appear much more doable and sustainable. If you teach, coach, write or otherwise help people with what you know, consider reading it. Maybe this will inspire you to do what you do bigger and better for more people!

A great book for marketers and people doing personal branding. Found many of his ideas interesting and acted on some. :) The secret is in execution - just getting it done. But to start with -- getting structured pointers is crucial.

I really wanted to like this book. It has some good information. However it could have been 75% shorter. The extra material: he knows Tony Robbins, he knows Paula Abdul, he has made a lot of money, and he has a business you can go to for more information. Good info drowning in an Infomercial.

After reading Life's Golden Ticket, I wanted to read some non-fiction by Brendon Burchard. This book is an easy read and includes some great tips for running a business online sharing your expert knowledge. It also covers how to figure out what your expertise is.

A good book for beginners, but Burchard's ego and self-promotion of his products, pervasive throughout the book, were a bit much.
