Publisher's Summary

This proactive, practical guide is unlike any self-help book you've ever listened to. It's not about simple motivation or inspiration; that stuff only matters if you have a plan. Me, Inc. is designed to help you develop that plan and then execute it to perfection. It's not a generic, one-size-fits-all program, but rather a personalized system for improving your life and filling it with purpose, meaning, and contentment. Business consultant and executive coach Scott Ventrella shows you how to achieve unlimited success by incorporating the basic principles of good business into everyday living. Sharing the 10 time-tested principles that guide most successful and enduring companies, he shows you how to apply them to your life and design your own custom "exceptional living plan", much like a business plan, that will guide you on the road to an exceptional life.
What if you were the CEO of a mediocre company? Would you just sit back and let the business plod along on a road to nowhere? Of course not. Any competent CEO would get proactive and start developing and implementing a plan for success. Now think about your life. Isn't it just as important as any business?
Over the course of 12 "milestones" and accompanying exercises, you'll learn what you want and why, create your custom exceptional living plan based on your ultimate goals, use that plan as an everyday guide to living, and learn how to maintain your momentum and stay on track. You'll take stock of your most important "clients", gather feedback on your actions, set goals and priorities, and implement plans for change and constant improvement. Rather than float through life, you'll take control, be your own boss, and steer You, Inc., into the black.
You only lead one life, so why lead an average one? Stop living by accident and start living on purpose.

Great guide for getting where you want to be

Practical guide about building a plan for your life filled with great ideas. Just as you can create a successful business, you can do the same for your life. I really enjoyed listening to it, doing the suggested activities and contemplating the concepts and strategies the author suggested. It's a clever way to access where you are and where you want to be, and find the best way to get there.

Audio Workbook

This book is exactly what I was looking for. It definantly 'delivers' on content. Given that, I find it is too much of a workbook for an audio version to be useful. If it wasn't for that, I'd probably have given this one five stars. Listening to the audio version has however, inspired me to go out and buy a hard copy. While the idea of paying for the same book twice bothers me a little, I'm not sure I would have picked up the book if I hadn't seen it here first.
