Have you ever wondered what the giants are doing in business?
Have any of the self made business leaders have shared what they really did to achieve greatness?
Did you notice that 99% of the self help books we read are nothing but a means for the author to get rich without any real knowledge of done something great in business?

I say most of the books and seminars out there are nothing but sh**

If you want to know how to get there big.... Read this.
The book is just mind blowing! I read it and took a lot of notes. Dan is a tough guy, but gives a lot of wisdom (which is not conventional!). I enjoyed reading every single page. I have a lot of learn from the book. Highly recommended for everybody who wants to make a quantum leap!

The book is divided mainly into 3 parts: You, your team and how to further expand your portfolio of companies.

I do not personally like some chapters such as those telling or teaching us to borrow from banks or financial institutions although there is deeper reason behind those moves. I personally think 'buying a company' or 'borrowing money from bank' isn't the hardest thing in the world but the author keeps talking about that. The harder thing is probably how to manage and quantum leap your pro

Best self-Improvement book I've ever read.Dan knows how to get what he wants and wants everyone to get theirs.Truly remarkable wisdom and lots and lots of practical information.
I skipped the most parts about how to make a company work or business related parts because I read it to get into the mentality of a High Performer and it was still really amazing.You can feel Dan's enthusiasm through the book.Definitely a must read for individuals who want the most from life.

I’ve read a descent amount of books and I must say this book is on my personal top 10 list. It is #10 because unless you were raised in an entrepreneurial spirit filled family or read books like Think and Grow Rich & Rich Dad Poor Dad you’d have to shift your consciousness to appreciate & comprehend the value of this book. Dan talks about the mindset to become a high performance individual as well as provide actual steps to take to raise capital and become wealthy. I highly recommend this book i ...more

I made contact with a probable member of the star team (this book is about taking action). There are instructions on getting things done step by step, letters/email formats to send out. You have to get going and add value to this world as soon as possible starting today.

You have to ease into this one. Very entertaining and informative. But you may get more first by watching his YouTube videos. That way, you can get a sense for Dan Pena.

Great lessons, from a very successful bad ass entrepreneur.
However they are focussed more on the private equity sector.
