Knockout Entrepreneur by George Foreman

“This book is about success and significance,” the opening line from the introduction of Knockout Entrepreneur by George Foreman.

This book is for the:

“Person who truly wants to succeed in life and is willing to do the hard work necessary to make it happen.”

Individual who can recognize good ideas.

Risk taker.

Ultimately, someone who gets the job done.

I can honestly and wholeheartedly say that I loved this book. From page one of the introduction through all 226 pages, this book is oozing with encouragement and insight from a man that does not just theorize about success, but has lived it. The stories that he shares from his personal experiences, makes you want to have him and his ENTIRE family over for a BBQ so you can find out more.

It’s not about money, or necessarily being given special opportunities, but taking what you have, giving 110% to wherever you are in life, at whatever job you are currently in and just having an excellence and integrity to strive for more. The encouragement and ideas in this book are excellent for any first time entrepreneur, current manager over others and even parents with kids. Being excellent and striving to get better in all areas of our lives and doing it with a smile on our face and thankfulness in our hearts, is what being a Knockout Entrepreneur is all about.

Thomas Nelson sent me the above book for review purposes. It will allow me to keep the book. I have no other connection to and have received no other compensation from Thomas Nelson.

And he is such a likeable guy on screen (and probably off tv, too!)

Wow Diane, this sounds like a really good read. I had no idea George Foreman even wrote a book!

Sounds like a knockout! I love books from persons that have made a successful showing of life. Especially if they are willing to impose knowledge that may push us to the next level.

There is no simple remedy to success, just a great deal of hard work.

I've always liked him. Thanx for the review!

Okay, I can't see anything about George Foreman without laughing that he named all of his sons George Foreman.
He's had a remarkable and impressive life though!

Teri said...

This is the kind of book I would never pick up, but your review made it sound so fun I might just have to.

It has a great title too! I didn't know who George Foreman was, only that I had a Foreman grill. LOL But I guess he's a boxer? It sounds like a great book.

Melinda said...

Sounds like a book we ALL could benefit from ... I'll see if our library has it!

Sounds like a good book. My hubby entrepreneur would likely appreciate the encouragement, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I'm glad you "found" me, and hope you'll visit again. *grin*

"Taking what you have, giving 110% to wherever you are in life, at whatever job you are currently in and just having an excellence and integrity to strive for more." That is SO motivational! Thanks for sharing!!

I love business books. And entrepreneurship runs in my family. :) I'll check it out at the library.

Couture Cookie said...

That sounds like a good source of inspiration for anyone. Thank you so much for your comment, I was so flattered. Writing is something I have always wanted to do... I find it way more fulfilling than my current job, which is a very shallow one.
