Maybe I liked this book more because I expected less.
I had never heard of Alex Hormozi two weeks before I read this. Kurtis Kildew, my partner at MWI, told me to follow Hormozi on Instagram. I wasn’t exactly impressed right off with his white-trash/bodybuilder/redneck/lumberjack appearance. I thought he had just about the worst dress-sense possible, although I had to admit he looked comfortable in his cut off jeans and white tank top. The video quality wasn’t great either, with stock emojis and basic editing.
However, then I actually listened to what he was saying, and I thought, “Man, this guy makes some great points, and he does it so quickly and simply.”
I got hooked on the Instagram videos, then Kurtis pushed me to read the book. As much as I like reading books, and even though I was already a Hormozi convert, I resisted, because:
- Purple cover
- Dollar bill on the cover
- Russell Brunson testimonial
This book screamed, “Get rich quick!” and “bropreneur” and “how to take advantage of people” and “low production value.”
But I finally gave in and read it, and once again, it wasn’t at all what I expected. It’s really good stuff (especially if you run a gym, but it’s good for anyone).
We’re now reading it as a team at MWI, and I’ve made changes in multiple businesses I own because of it. It’s one of the most practical books I’ve ever read. It’s also a quick read. Listen to it on double speed and you can finish it in about two hours.
