What if launching and leading an xceptional business was simpler than you’ve ever imagined? Not easier. Not less time consuming. Not less gut wrenching, but simpler. Guess what: It is.
What if I told you many successful entrepreneurs didn’t start with a compelling vision or indeed a workable business plan? Guess what: That’s true.
What if it was possible to dominate a market without any previous background in it and limited capital? Well: It is.
And finally what if I told you your biggest obstacle was the idea killer in your head…..well it is!
In Do! I draw from over two decades of intensive research to highlight what makes xceptional businesses and their leaders succeed beyond all odds.
Learn how to:
- Deal with that idea killer in your head.
- Model off best practice.
- Understand and move through fear.
- Communicate in an attention deficit market.
- Build friendships, not customer relationships.
- Xceptionalize each contact with your client.
-Implement a culture of xceptional execution.
Already the book is receiving rave reviews from some of the most established names in the field:
" If you truly want to Think Big; Do will do it for you! Success will no longer be the exclusive domain of visionaries, entrepreneurs with fully loaded business plans and well financed startups. It can be anyone’s game –including yours. The huge barrier to entry is xceptional execution and Do highlights the DNA and strategies behind some of the brightest startups on the planet. In his engaging and energetic style and with extraordinary content, Kevin Kelly has become the voice of execution. "
Jason Jennings, NY Times Bestselling Author of, It's Not The Big That Eat The Small-It’s The Fast That Eat The Slow and The Reinventors
"In this remarkable book, Kevin Kelly skillfully proves it's not the brilliant idea, but instead, the shining ability to execute simple plans that belies the greatest business success stories of our time. Read this book if you want to Do the great thing, and not just dream about it."
Tim Sanders, author of NYT Best Seller "Love is the Killer App" and former Chief Solutions Officer at Yahoo!
" What got me was Kevin's confession to having been an 'idea killer'. He was a guy who looked for the reasons why…Not! His conversion to a DO'er is an inspiring journey through multiple examples of business successes achieved by others in a wide variety of fields worldwide. It's not a book about him, it's about them and how you can do what they did. Read this book to strengthen your belief in your ideas and in yourself."
