Donny Deutsch's hit CNBC show The Big Idea has put the spotlight on that ordinary moment and the people who have the courage and stamina to make their dreams come true. Some people think a big idea is like a lightning bolt striking out of the blue that slams you in the head. But it's hardly ever like that. The big idea isn't an act of God. It's an act of daily life. Simply put, the idea that will make millions starts with an observation.
A carpenter gets tired of almost losing a finger every time he slices a bagel. Bam! The Bagel Guillotine. A mother is frustrated that her pantry is full of stale food because the packages don't close. Bam! Quick Seals. Howard Schultz notices on a trip to Italy that there are coffee bars on almost every corner. Bam! Starbucks.
None of them had a barrel of cash. None of them had a ton of experience. They had a big idea and the will to follow through.
In The Big Idea, Deutsch draws not only on his own tremendous focus and expertise, but on that of dozens of the successful entrepreneurs whom he has interviewed, to help you create your own enterprise.
From the "Gut Check Moment" to "Mom Power", The Big Idea takes aspiring entrepreneurs along every step of the way. The Big Idea is your road map to the American dream.
"The author's enthusiasm and interest in his readers is apparent on every page, distinguishing this book from the dry, disinterested business guides that fill the small business startup bookshelves." (Publishers Weekly)

THE book on getting your ideas to market
Nothing more than his EGO and self talk
The area I felt this was lacking is how to transform yourself, what are the tips, tricks and methods I could learn from him. All I got was his story.... If it was sold as an autobiography I would have maybe provided different feedback. I listened to it and was disappointed, I listened again to ensure I didn't miss anything and I was surprised to learn... I didn't.
Egotistical self talk about how I did it and why I am so great....
