01 Oct [FREE BOOK] The 7 Day Startup by Dan Norris
Gold Coast entrepreneur, Dan Norris has just released his much anticipated bootstrapper's bible 'The 7 Day Startup'.
If the name doesn't ring a bell, Dan is the founder of unlimited WordPress support startup - WP Curve. In just a few short years, he has taken the company from nothing more than an idea to over $400,000 of recurring annual revenue, with a team of more than 15 staff situated across the globe.
Fortunately for us, Dan has unloaded his knowledge and packaged it all into a book, with 131 pages of valuable startup lessons for entrepreneurs. I read this book over the weekend and as cliche as it may sound, I believe any entrepreneur in the mix of starting a new business who does not read this book, is doing themselves a tremendous disadvantage.
There are a few reasons why I believe this to be true:
So many first-time entrepreneurs take too long to launch. They simply waste time in an attempt to have everything perfect - dotting their 'I's and crossing their 'T's. Dan really drills down on why this is the wrong way to approach the launch of a new business, and how you can save time with extreme momentum.
Dan also plays up the importance of having a good idea that will support a business to rapidly grow and scale. If your idea and business model is off, then this can be a very costly mistake to encounter post-launch, and one that is often avoidable.
The subject of 'validation' is also covered in great detail, explaining how traditional methods of validation don't work and what you should do instead. This is a massive time saver on it's own.
Just to top things off, Dan has decided to make this book a free download on Amazon for one week only. Meaning you have full access to a digital copy, plus all the resources that go along with it - dramatically increasing your likelihood of a successful startup. Enjoy!
