Review by SimonHedley | The Strategic Alchemist
I’ve got to know Gary over the decade. I’ve seen him sharing, growing and learning.. And more than that helping. His #AskGaryVee work is a massive step forward both those in the corporate space looking to make the step outside and into the faster waters of modern entrepreneurship and social influence, and also those looking to free themselves from the distraction rich world of the guru cult snake oil training space.
I come from a background of business, banking and entrepreneurship. I also know there is more to life than just making money.
Why I’m writing this is in the last few days, I met with Gary live in London and watched him being present and talking to hundreds of people who came and asked Gary V. There was no ego, there was no security, there was a man who was and is deeply passionate about 1) being authentic 2) cutting through the BS 3) walking his talk.
He wouldn’t have done that for the money or to sell some books. He actually 100% deeply cares. Meet him, shake his hand and get behind the “noise” of @askgaryvee
We also run a charity , and we’ve given his previous books – jab jab jab hook, and shared his content and it’s made a difference to a lot of people. So far early days.. But the same here ..
If you want to see why 300+ people came at a few hours notice after a simple post on Instagram and snapchat.. Read this book.
And remember all it takes is one simple idea, implemented to make the difference.
This book will give you more than one..
There are fewer people right now I would recommend you read if you wanted a fresh mindset and fresh take – based on tried and tested logic
Gary is someone that is walking the talk of being a growth mechanic and I know because I am too. This is not noise or gambling. This is work. And he’s loyal to what he knows works.
He’s also willing to admit – I was wrong and learn and move forward.
Read the book, apply what you learn, and hopefully I’ll be learning and partnering and buying from you soon too.
The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks
I’d heard of this but then started seeing references to it “everywhere” – a sure sign it was time to read it! I couldn’t put it down and allowed myself the luxury of reading and being inspired for hours.
I was aware of the concept of being in our Zone of Genius and of course in my mentoring/coaching I spend much time working with clients on “limiting beliefs” but the way Gay Hendricks explains the 4 – yes, just 4 – Upper Limit Problems that prevent us living a life of abundance, love and success really resonated and I could see that one was still in play after all these years and $s spent on personal & spiritual development.
In the process of reading – combined with listening to Denise Duffield-Thomas (author of Get Rich Lucky Bitch) – I came up with a complete new business model that truly has me in my Zone of Genius and encapsulates everything I love, have done, learnt and aspire to thus far.
If you have a knowing that you can be more, do more and have more but feel as though you are operating with a limiter in place read this book.
By Robert Kiyosaki
I was recommended to read this by a friend who has taken part in coaching with the Rich Dad team. She told me it would give me a whole new perspective on assets and the current state of finance, economics and the world stage. It did.
Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad Poor Dad and many others) explains – in an easily read way – how finances, education, politics are all controlled by the very wealthy to further benefit them BUT far from being “rich bashing” it demonstrates how to think differently, how to act as the wealthy do and how to learn the art of true success and true wealth.
Forewarned is fore armed and Robert’s forecasting of another crash, bigger than ever before, in or around 2016 (which he made in 2002) and which was influenced by the work of Bucky Buckminster Fuller flags up what we can do to attempt to avert this individually and globally.
His wisdom on different types of intelligence and the evident necessity for a different kind of education, which isn’t still firmly rooted in the Industrial Age, rings so true that you wonder why this isn’t our reality…but he shares his insights on what is holding the change back too.
If you think you need to get out of debt, think again. If you think you need savings, forget it. If you believe stocks and shares will provide for your old age, start to question it…quickly. For a fresh and insightful view of true assets, real cashflow and abundance read this book.

Who moved my cheese
An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life
Author: Spencer Johnson
This book helps trigger toughts on parts of life you might not even know you’re thinking of changing. It puts things into perspective and gently speaks to your unconscious mind, guiding you to make the decisions you have already made.
Change can be a blessing or a curse, depending on your perspective. The message of Who Moved My Cheese? is that all can come to see it as a blessing, if they understand the nature of cheese and the role it plays in their lives. Who Moved My Cheese? is a parable that takes place in a maze. Four beings live in that maze: Sniff and Scurry are mice, non-analytical and non-judgmental; they just want cheese and are willing to do whatever it takes to get it. Hem and Haw are “little people”, mouse-size humans who have an entirely different relationship with cheese. It’s not just sustenance to them; it’s their self-image. Their lives and belief systems are built around the cheese they’ve found. Most of us reading the story will see the cheese as something related to our livelihoods–our jobs, our career paths, the industries we work in–although it can stand for anything, from health to relationships. The point of the story is that we have to be alert to changes in the cheese and be prepared to go running off in search of new sources of cheese when the cheese we have runs out.
‘One of the most successful business books ever’, Daily Telegraph .’Dr. Johnson has the rare ability to be interesting, provocative and succinct. My admiration is complete.’, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, author of The Power of Positive Thinking
From the bestselling co-author of The One Minute Manager series comes this guide to help you anticipate, adapt to and enjoy change in your life, thereby achieving success. Johnson delivers his message via a simple parable about creatures living in a maze, looking for cheese to nourish them and keep them happy. The book is split into three sections: in ‘A Gathering’, a group discusses how they currently deal with change; in ‘The Story of Who Moved My Cheese?’ we find the parable itself; and in ‘A Discussion’, the group talks about what the story meant to them and how they mean to use it in the future. There are also fun cheese illustrations bearing key advice: ‘Monitor Change – Smell The Cheese Often So You Know When It Is Getting Old’. Quick and easy to read. (Kirkus UK)
