Publisher's Summary

People starting out in business tend to seek step-by-step formulas or rules, but in reality there are no magic bullets. Rather, says veteran company-builder Norm Brodsky, there's a mentality that helps street-smart entrepreneurs solve problems and pursue opportunities as they arise. Brodsky shares his hard-earned wisdom every month in Inc. magazine, in the hugely popular "Street Smarts" column he cowrites with Bo Burlingham. Now they've adapted their best advice into a comprehensive guide for anyone running a small business.

This great audio was originally called The Knack!

I had heard about The Knack for quite some time, and how important it is for any business owner to have. I was delighted to find that The Knack has been released again as Street Smarts and it is as relevant as can be.

I was captivated by this audiobook. The author answered so many questions I had as a business owner. I found the examples he presents to be interesting, useful and yet still entertaining. I highly recommend it for every entrepreneur.

If you are in business or are thinking about it..

If you could sum up Street Smarts in three words, what would they be?

clear, concise, understandable

What was one of the most memorable moments of Street Smarts?

My business is nothing like the author's yet I understood each concept as it is explained.

What about Sean Pratt’s performance did you like?

The voice actor comes across as if he personally experienced these stories and concepts. A very enjoyable presentation.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Street Smarts has motivated me to move forward with several "next step" actions that, in the back of my mind, I knew needed to be accomplished.

Any additional comments?

I never leave my comments. This is a first. I can assure you that the concepts related in this audio book are highly valuable to you, your business, and those you interact with every day. I won't say "it will change your life" but I will say that you may choose to handle people and situations differently (for the better) after listening to Street Smarts.
