The Freaks Shall Inherit The Earth Summary #business

Lesson One: Define success and work towards it

So many people have great ideas but never put them into practice.

You have probably had a few million-dollar ideas that you did nothing with.

The first thing you need to do in order to actually put those ideas into place is to think about what success is to you.

For some, they want the fast cars and millions of dollars, while others want a steady income and time to peruse a passion and spend time with family.

From there, you need to set out to give yourself the basics needed to achieve them.

There are so many ‘freaks’ out there with the ideas but no way to execute. Don’t be that guy.

Lesson Two: You don’t need to know every skill in your trade

When you try and turn your freak-iness into a business, there is a lot to learn.

Actually, that is putting it lightly. There is a metric fuck-tonne (the technical term) of things you need to know.

You’ll obviously need to know some of the basics, and to be honest, you’ll pick up knowledge along the way.

However, while it can be overwhelming, it doesn’t have to be.

Only focus on learning the utterly necessary and skip the rest.

You can find others to help you with things you don’t know when that time comes.

For example, you don’t have to know everything about programming to launch your own web site. You can use a website builder, a WordPress theme, or even hire someone to look after the process for you.

Lesson Three: Every successful freak has its own community

A comforting part about being a freak, is that you’re never alone… there are other freaks out there just like you.

And with the big, bad world of the internet, it is easier than ever to find them.

This group of people will be the group that launch your business and become your biggest fans. More than likely, they are waiting for someone like you.

NOTE: I’m not going to use the term ‘tribe’ because I hate it.

Use different types of media and social media to help find those who vibe with the voodoo that you do.

Every type of media has different strengths so choose one that suits you.

Start with one media type and work from there. Don’t try to be on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Blogs all at the same time.

My Personal Takeaway

I consider myself to be a bit of a weirdo when it comes to a few things.

So I know that a book like this is a godsend for people like me. I would have LOVED this book when I was just starting out, but it was still a great guide to reference.

Did this summary excite you?

Book summaries are great, but I also really believe that you will not fully understand the book or the author without trying the real thing. Learn more about this subject and support the author by getting the book.

Put it into action

Start as a ’employeepreneur’! That is someone who looks for ways to innovate in the job they have.

The mindset you take on when you look to bring in new ideas in the workplace is the mindset that will help you when you eventually become your own boss.

You should consider buying this book if…

This book is ideal for someone who feels they’re destined for a little more than average but don’t know where to start.
