Professionals in any industry can benefit from the information and insight Hirsch provides, as the book is written in a manner that ensures its usefulness across a variety of professions and industries. Even though the book is intended for a wide audience that includes entrepreneurs seeking to gain a foothold in incredibly diverse industries, Hirsch has included industry-specific information so every reader can understand how each piece of advice can be applied to the industry in which they are operating.
Determined to help burgeoning entrepreneurs understand the importance of practical decision-making strategies and the value of advance planning, Hirsch includes specific examples demonstrating the consequences of some of the more common mistakes while also highlighting the benefits of a sensible and goal-oriented approach to business. Preaching practicality and sensibility, Hirsch delineates how it is possible to achieve a balance between an aggressive approach and patient, thoughtful planning.
While Hirsch notes the value of confidence and self-assurance throughout each step of the process, he also reminds readers to carefully evaluate each move to prevent the kind of mistakes frequently made out of sheer hubris. The emphasis on thoughtful planning makes this the ideal book for aggressive entrepreneurs who could benefit from adopting a more patient and thoughtful approach in order to bring their unique vision to life.
With years of experience building and consulting countless startups, Hirsch understands the difficulties entrepreneurs often encounter along the way. In “Sebastian Hirsch's Selling Your Service - Your Expertise Turned Into Dollars,” the author takes on the role of a trusted advisor whose only goal is to ensure the long-term success of the entrepreneur. Hirsch's book is intended to serve as a voice of reason for entrepreneurs, encouraging readers to passionately pursue their goals while warning them not to lose their wits in the process.
This is a very quick and easy read with some great information, most being common strategies that one might be familiar with already. This is not a make money now kind of book but a long term commitment to starting and maintaining income from your very own knowledge.
In the chapter Making a Game Plan, it writes about how to make a checklist of things you want to accomplish, seeking advice from others and how to find funding from others to get your project moving in the right direction. I think this was the most helpful chapter for me as I am not very familiar at finding funding other than through a bank or loan company.
All in all I think this is a very well laid out book and has a lot of great information in it. It's compacted so that the reader doesn't have to spend an immense amount of time studying it's attributes!
