Knockout Entrepreneur by George Foreman

Building a business. Venturing out. Striving for more.

These are all themes found in the Knockout Entrepreneur.

This book is an autobiographical look at building a business and a better life through perseverance in difficult situations. It is a motivational push to pursue entrepreneurial ventures against the odds. In his personal writing style, Foreman, with Ken Abraham, presents the reader with a host of tips and advice for overcoming defeat or moments of indecision. "Successful people, however, realize that rejection means that you move on to the next opportunity." Overall this book is a challenge to become a stronger person when life presents new heights to be gained.

While encouragement is always refreshing, this book may rank a bit higher for those who have an interest in boxing as Foreman often refers to his own life and the lessons he has learned along the way. I found the material to be a bit more focused on Foreman's history than I had originally hoped when I got the book. Certainly we can all learn from the lives of others, but this didn't quite suit me personally. The book is one of Thomas Nelson's Nelson FREE books which means you are really buying 3 books in one- hard copy, ebook, and audio. This might not be a top rating book on my shelves, but the exposure to the Nelson FREE material is certainly incentive to pursue more of their books in that program.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
