Publisher's Summary

Are you frustrated with a lack of results at work? Have you hit a wall? Are you uninspired, stuck in a rut, feeling underappreciated? Well, good news: your success is not up to your boss, your manager, your employees, or the economy. It's up to YOU. Business is never bad, people are just bad at being in business. If that makes you mad, this book is for you. Larry Winget hacks through the bad advice given in most business books, explaining why:

Teamwork doesn't work

We reward the wrong behaviors and focus on the wrong things

Expectations are low, standards are even lower

We are all stealing from our companies and ourselves

Our co-workers are really only "co-goers"
Winget shows you how to take responsibility for your own success and get excited about your possibilities once again. Whether you punch a clock, own your own business, or manage other people, Larry's advice will work for you. Find out why:


Success is simple

Results are everything

You don't have to love your job (but it helps!)

You gotta serve somebody

Nothing happens until something is sold
You will be surprised, you will laugh, and you will discover motivation you never knew you had. Let Larry Winget shock you out of your comfort zone and into a whole new league.

Take it with a grain of salt

Larry Winget is a very entertaining speaker. He tells us so. Much of his wisdom rings true. His opinions are provocative. But they are just his opinions - again he tells us so. The book is not a prescription for living - that fact makes the book better. The book lagged in the middle - but ended with a flourish. It was a breeze to listen to it over the course of two days. Two thumbs up.

Just do the work GOOD STUFF

Chapter 11 How to absolutely destroy the competition - I read this chapter first, and you should to. Whether you are an owner, manager, executive, VP, salesperson, janitor or president of your company you will miss out by not reading this book

I have worked in major corporations and I've been self employed, this book applies to anyone who is business today.

No one delivers like Larry Winget.

I have listened to a lot of great speakers and read great authors, but none have got more results out of me than Larry.

Nobody but you is to blame but yourself for not buying "It's Called Work for a Reason."

Don't just buy it, read it and apply the principles. It really is that simple.

One more thing, get ready for Larry's sense of humor, it is entertaining.
