Stories From Readers of The Start-Up of You

May 7 2012

In the first few weeks the book has been available, we’ve been thrilled with the reactions from everyday people for whom The Start-Up of You has made a difference in their lives and careers.

On our LinkedIn Group, readers have been introducing themselves to the community and posting their thoughts on the book. Individuals from around the country and around the world have also been posting about the actions they’ve taken and the successes they’ve had as a result of implementing the strategies from the book.

For example, Adrian Sferle, who works in PR in San Francisco, says that the “book is a life-changer.” He was able to use the strategies from Chapter 4: It Takes A Network to win “more clients than ever before” at his job and on a personal level, provided a clear structure to reach his personal goals in a logical and pragmatic way.

He calls it “one of the most useful books I’ve ever read.”

Michelle Murphy, of Liverpool in the UK, was able to apply the concepts from the book even before she finished reading the whole thing. She has impressed the owner of her the company she works for by securing meetings with key clients for the firm she works for. “I am quite simply over the moon with the reaction and the feedback I have had from persons in my industry.”

It also inspired Nitin Julka, an IT executive, to start a meet up for local entrepreneurs in Cleveland and for Dan Brody, who works in the fashion industry in New York and was a contestant on the hit show, The Apprentice, to rekindle the relationships he created during that time.

We’ve been simply overwhelmed with the positive reaction from readers – so much so, that we’ve set up a special page on the book website to feature the stories we’ve heard. Also, if you have a story to share, you can submit it here.
