Présentation de l'éditeur

"Never started a company before? Struggling with little or no cash? Have no experience, no baseline to judge your progress against? Thank God! You've got a shot at making this work." So says Mike Michalowicz, author of The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur, a business book that is so uniquely useful, so raw and entertaining, it reads like the brainchild of Steve Jobs and Chris Rock.
The founder of three multimillion-dollar companies, including Obsidian Launch, a company that partners with first-time entrepreneurs to grow their concepts into industry leaders, Mike Michalowicz knows what it really takes to spin your great idea into pure gold.

Whether you're just starting out or have been at this for years, Mike's "get real" approach to business is a much-needed swift kick in the pants. In this book, you'll discover:
* Why a business plan is a total waste of your time.
* Why fulfilling your own needs is the first and last order of business.
* Which three sheets of paper you need to successfully launch, manage and grow your business.
* How to get started in business with little or no money.
* How to find and exploit resources that no one else knows about.
* How to stop procrastinating and take action NOW!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Short Easy Applicable Guide for the Everyday Entrepreneur 22 décembre 2008
Par Ivana S. Taylor - Publié sur Amazon.com
I fell in love with Toilet Paper Entrepreneur on page xxi (in the introduction) where Mike Michalowicz does a brilliant comparison between the "Media Darling" entrepreneur and his "Three Sheet Path." In Mike's example at the age of 18, the media darling is recruited to an Ivy League school only to quit and launch a successful VC. Meanwhile, Mike is picking colleges based on the guy-to-girl ratios. Yup - that would be me.

This book showed me that regular people with some skill and an idea can launch a successful business -- without all the fancy schmancy MBA stuff and spending thousands on consultants and technology. Don't get me wrong. There is a place for all the formal stuff - but this book will get you to that place.

One of my favorite Guy Kawasaki quotes (from his new book Reality Check) goes something like "Just once I wish someone would ask me for money to increase their capacity because they have more customers than they know what to do with!"

Toilet Paper Entrepreneur will get you to that point where you will build a business and an infrastructure for profitable growth. If you've ever dreamed of pitching the likes of Guy Kawasaki - read this first. This will get you to needing more capacity to serve more customers.

Mike doesn't have to impress anyone. He has proven (because he's made millions several times over) that real entrepreneurship is about resourceful action and this book tells you how.

Build your business with 3 documents
1. A Prosperity Plan - Your credo and vision for your success.
2. A Quarterly Plan - Your goals and objectives a quarter out
3. Daily Metrics - The numbers that immediately measure the health of your business.

You'll also find ways to:
- Get low-cost, no-cost employees and assistance
- Find office furniture
- Free conference calling and web casting

And so much more.
WARNING: Not for the easily offended.

If you are easily offended by potty humor - this book is not for you. If you're more impressed with high-end consultant, PhD. research-based books that tell you all the right ways to do things - you'll be disappointed.

But even the "negative reviews" here acknowledge that the information is good, valid, insightful and right on.

Personally, I love the potty humor. It's visceral and completely and effectively communicates what it really means to be resourceful when you have to be.

I've already used many of the tips in the book and saved some money. It's inspirational and is gathering quite the community of fun entrepreneurs committed to action and growth no matter what the economy.,

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Review of The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur 16 octobre 2008
Par Sarah L. Radford - Publié sur Amazon.com
Ok, so I just finished the book....LOVED it!
Mike's book, The Toilet Paper Entrpreneur" is a no nonsense, tell it like it is book on business. I can say that the 3 sheet toilet paper theory is genius! Everyone can relate...
Being an entrepreneur myself, I know that there is a lot of hard work that goes into owning a business. My friends who have classic "9-5er's" don't get it. Reading this book is a breath of fresh air and gives me an instant energy charge. I have had people ask me over and over if I have a business plan. I do have one roughly written, but it is far from "perfect". I liked the chapter that talked about business plans being a waste of time. Afterall, do most people really look at them after they get a bank loan? Instead, Mike suggests making a Prosperity Plan, which is much more practical and definitely helps you keep focused on the big picture.
I also throughly enjoyed the chapter about the TPE's vs. The Media Darlings. I have had people give me their FREE advice that I don't have the money needed to make my business successful. Hmmmm... As Mike said, ask Bill Hewlitt and Mike Packard who began their business with $538.
The beautiful thing is that in America that can be your story too!
The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur is a must read for any entrepreneur!
All the very best!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great book for beginner entrepreneurs and good for the rest of us too 27 septembre 2008
Par Benjamin A. Simon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Because of my interest in this topic (I write software for businesses who fit the definition of a Toilet Paper Entrepreneur), Mike (a guy I've just met over the web) sent me a review copy of the text.

I have to say, I really enjoyed the book. It's written with a humorous / conversational tone, which makes for an easy read (be prepared for lots of potty humor). While the book is fun, I was pleased to find lots of useful advice for building a business - the book goes beyond just cheerleading.

I happen to be a big fan of the whole bootstrapping method of building a business. Rather than figure this approach out via trial and error, Mike provides a concrete approach for doing just this.

I gave the book 5 starts because I think it nails the topic for the audience it wants to go after: people who want to start a business, but don't think they have the money or education to do so. If that's you, then this should be among the first business books you buy.

If you're like myself and have a bit more experience, then I still recommend the book. You'll no doubt find it educational, and at the very least, you'll get in quite a few good laughs.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 The "all other business books suck" attitude 2 décembre 2010
Par Adam Temple - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Any time I find 'all business books suck so read mine' attitude - I know to watch out. It's silly to say something like that, especially when your book isn't good.

Let me describe why you shouldn't read this book.

* There is a serious lack of substance - Read articles from a dozen mediocre business blogs and you can pick up more substance. Though he presents some valid ideas, he does it in such a clumsy way that you are totally unconvinced.
* The toilet illustration got really old - the perfect example: when you feel the urge to start a business, you just gotta go. The book is filled with this....crap. Oh yeah, that's said plenty also.

So, in the footsteps of Mike, let me give you a tasteless toilet illustration about why you should read this book: The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur is like wiping yourself with cheap toilet paper. There is just so much left behind that you need to find something else just to clean up after the mess that was made.

I have read plenty other books that give a overview of business without being immature, lame, sporadic, and ineffective. I don't want to promote them here in case I am taken for a spammer. If you are going to start a business, don't spend your money here. Do a little more homework and find the next book to read.

Not to demean the 200+ people that have given this book 5 stars...but what the heck?

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Great idesas, but I wish this book was written for grownups 29 novembre 2008
Par Winston Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
While I was reading this book I was tempted to use it as toilet paper innumerable times, as I was repeatedly turned off by the tone and imagery used. I was confounded by the fact that as I progressed, I discovered that Michalowicz was offering up truly valuable insights that would actually work and lead to success.

This is one of those books that you have to finish just to see i) how far the author will go in his pandering, sophomoric style, and ii) what flashes of novelty and brilliance he offers up, almost like an idiot savant who doesn't realize what he is capable of achieving.

Having run a successful small business and spent enough time in the corporate world to know the difference between good business advice and slickly packaged crap, I give this guy credit for taking a no-nonsense view of start-up businesses and making sensible, less-than-obvious recommendations that any new entrepreneur should embrace.

If this book was written for grownups and not for frat boys, it would be on the New York Times bestsellers list. Yes, Michalowicz's ideas are that good.
