If you have ever considered joining any network marketing venture, this is a good read to disillusion you. A large portion of the book is spent explaining how you can exploit every relationship in your life and manipulate others for your own financial gain. The author is involved with the company Rodan & Fields but more or less she explains how it essentially does not matter what product is being sold in network marketing schemes, just that you play the game of trying to get every person you ...more

One of the things I am “supposed” to do for my business is consistently read professional development books. I kinda hate them. But this book? I will never get rid of it and I will buy it for everyone who joins my business. Romi gets it right, her advice is so good and it is not sugar coated. I love her attitude and I love how she is simply not afraid to say the hard things about what many in my field are doing that cheapens our brand and our opportunity. I know that what oth

Get out your highlighter! You're gonna need it. Love this book and all it has to offer for new as well as seasoned DS entrepreneurs. It's full of no BS advice, short, simple and easy to follow. It reads as if Romi is next to you, hanging out, chatting with her friends. Great asset to my growing business.

This book was also full of practical advice.  It was longer than Rock Your Network Marketing Business and had more stories.  It had a bit of language and bluntness, but also some humor.  It was helpful, even if not written in my favorite way.

I feel like this is seriously the textbook for anyone working a home based business or network marketing to be (1) authentic (2) not sleazy and (3) helping others while helping yourself first. I’ve read it before and continually have solid takeaways and good lessons to make me better at my job. Definitely get it for your shelf and read often.

Absolutely inspirational. I learned so much. I love her clear, concise, no-nonsense approach to business and to teaching us (women) how to run a successful business. Applying some of her techniques has already started improving aspects of my business. If you can get past the swear words, it is well worth the read! I will be reading again.

I’m giving this book 4 stars because I do think her advice is sound and full proof. I think if anyone takes this advice to heart and goes all in they will almost certainly find success.

However reading this book has made realize that network marketing isn’t my dream. I have zero desire to attack my direct sales business plan like she does. When I was reading a lot of her advice on what to do and what to say It made me feel slimy and spammy, it does not fit my personality, I would feel forced and

It definitely gives one perspective on how to recruit, and qualify people for your Network Marketing business, it unfortunately also is exactly why people are turned off to an otherwise very attractive business model.

It does identify a few things well...
1. You will have to talk to a lot of people and grow your network to build a network marketing business. (I know this seems obvious but so many people get into a business thinking that they are going to grow a massive organization by staying with

Big fat meh. Also, there was a review that mentioned that the profanity was too much and I thought, “Lighten up, sensitive reader.” But having listened to the whole audiobook, I actually found the amount of the f-bombs distracting and they begin to lose their emphasis two-thirds of the way through the book.
Kelley
Up-front, no-nonsense advice from a woman who has been extremely successful in network marketing. I liked that I couldn't tell which company Neustadt worked for and had to look it up, so I didn't feel like she was selling me on her product, simply her techniques for success in her field (it's Rodan & Fields, by the way). I won't call it compelling reading: I picked it up early this year thinking it would be a quick read, and although it's not difficult, heavy, or poorly-written so as to be c ...more

EVERY MLM business owner needs this

Having worked in an MLM before without much success, I can tell you if I had THIS TRAINING back then it would have changed things. If you are serious about building a successful business this book will show you what you need to do. Then it's up to you to DO IT! I love Romi's straight to the point, no sugar coating tough love and I bet you will too.

I was looking forward to reading this book, but after the intro it seems she was trying to sell me something. I did not find what I was looking for in it so I skipped around to try and find anything useful to no avail.

Good Read

This book really helps you realize what it takes to make a large income with MLM. However, I wish it weren't so focused on 6 and 7 figure incomes. Not everyone is striving for that. Also....the author doesn't mention the company she is with until the end of the book but with full name shout outs, anyone can Google that and see what MLM company these people are with. I feel that could cause issues for people trying to recruit for a different company since these people being discussed in

I listened to Get Over Your Damn Self on audiobook and loved it! I wish I had found it when I rejoined the direct sales industry last June! She makes it sound so easy to talk to people about joining you as business partners without sounding salesy or feeling like you’re being annoying. It really got my butt in gear and start reaching out to people again. It’s so easy to get caught up in everyday life and forget how much you enjoy talking to certain friends. This has helped me rekindle friendship ...more

This actually did the opposite of what I was hoping...it makes me want to run far, far away from this type of work. Neustadt teaches ways to con someone into believing they need to work the business. If she can't quickly con, then she advocates using the individual as a resource for referrals. For me, my mind must not be there for working in MLM...or maybe it's just in Neustadt's way of teaching that I'm turned off. I don't mean disrespect...it's just so far out of my head to work that way and b ...more

Shelves: could-not-finish
I couldn't even finish this book. I thought it was be your typical self-help book filled with inspiring stories and advice. However, I felt like this book just encouraged people to get into the MLM business for reasons x, y, & z. I didn't find it inspirational or helpful at all. I would rather hear from a small business owner and the path they took to find success. I want to hear about how someone starts a business from the ground up instead of someone who is encouraging people to do exactly ...more

Looking for some motivational help? This is the book for you. I recently started my own LipSense by Senegence business and my upline recommended I read it. Romi Neustadt really lays it all out for you. The number one reason for your failure, is your own stubborness. Get up and Show up! In order to succeed you have to do the work.

Read with our Burgess Bunch Strive for Five Group Summer 2017 and honestly wondered why I hadn't read it sooner. So many wonderful tips, tricks and wording. This is truly a must-read for anyone in network marketing--not just R+F. Only gave it 4 stars because I think she could have communicated the same concepts without the ugly, often unprofessional language.

I found the description of the book to be very deceiving, and did not realize until I had purchased it that it was completely focused on MLM businesses. I tried to keep reading, as I thought perhaps I could still derive some sale tips or business plan ideas from the author, but in the end skimmed the rest as it was all about how to turn every possible relationship into a transaction.

Great book...requires action!

I love the directness and realness of this book. Starting my 10th year in network marketing, I knew a lot of what was in this book (and some of which was written in our founders book 55 years ago) it's good to get a different perspective. Now it's time to go back and implement step by step what she talked about.

I was challenged to read this book after I signed up to sell SeneGence Beauty products. I was told t was amazing, I was told it would change my life, and I was not told wrong.

The biggest challenge you will have after reading this is actually FOLLOWING through with what you just read. You have to be the person who wants to Get Over Your Damn Self.

Great book!
Rehab Dynasty Amy Lee
If you’ve never ever read a single self help hook, or any entrepreneurial type book, great! This is the best way to sum up any major point of everyone’s work.

If you have read any other type business builder book? Have a great teaching team of leaders, ... do not waste your time!

Proof anyone can indeed write a book.

Same old concept in rough language

its alright. She has probably given good advise , but too often it's same thing you see in other salees books. Title suggested that book would be about "Damn Self" . But it tries to touching so many topics that it ends up doing justice with none.

Great information mixed with humor for a solid foundation in any MLM business or just promoting the dickens out of your own. I didn't care for the unnecessary language bombs, but realized there would be some from the title.
