The Millionaire Messenger: Make a Difference and a Fortune Sharing Your Advice
by Brendon Burchard
My Rating ***** (5 out of 5 stars)
Why Did I Read?
I am inspired by Brendon Burchard, and I would eventually like to read all of his books. Until now, the only book I have read of his was The Charge (another 5 star book…see my review). I have a long list of books I would love to read. The Millionaire Messenger was on the list, but it was not one that I felt I needed to read right away. Until a few weeks ago. When I watched one of Brendon’s free videos promoting his program Experts Academy, he referenced The Millionaire Messenger often and I felt called to read it right away. So, I got it from my library and began to read…
Summary (From Goodreads)
“In The Millionaire Messenger, Brendon Burchard pulls back the curtains on the once-secretive “expert industry” and shows how to become an influential and highly paid advice expert through websites, books, speeches, seminars, coaching, consulting, and online programs.
Blessed to receive life’s golden ticket – a second chance – after surviving a dramatic car accident, Burchard has dedicated his life to helping others find their voice, live more fully, and follow their dreams.
By following his 10-step program, average, ordinary people can learn to package their struggles, successes, research, or life’s story into advice for others and become experts on any given topic. In the industry of people who share their advice and knowledge with the world and get paid for it, Burchard is the “guru’s guru.”
If you’ve ever wondered how the gurus spread their message, serve others, and build a real business, then this is a must-read.”
What Did I Think/Recommendation
I found this book to be both inspiring and motivating. There is so much information in there, and it is difficult to take it all in at once. It definitely is not a leisurely read. To get the most out of it, you must do the work. I found it helpful to have my journal nearby and answer the questions that were presented as I went through the book. I especially enjoyed the questions he presented at the beginning. He asks the reader to list 5 things they have learned about a variety of different topics. I enjoyed answering those questions and learned a lot about myself through that exercise.
I feel like I need to read this book again because it is so packed with content and there are so many of his ideas I want to implement into my work. If you have a message you want to share with the world, as I do, then I highly recommend reading this book and doing the work involved along the way.
