Create Uniqueness, Reviewed
This book is short, coming in at 150 pages. This is not necessarily a bad thing. It is pithy, gets to the point and has some good insights, including sharing those experiences when it didn’t all go swimmingly. We enjoyed reading it, and the anecdotes and examples always help to differentiate a book, and ensure that it is more than just theory. He did enter the blogging market at a good, early strategic time, so you do wonder how much good timing was a fortunate factor for them. But of course, if you’re not in it, then you can’t win it.
It is snappy and a quick read and may offer you the relevant insights you need to encourage, inspire and motivate you to keep going with your own business venture. Once you have ensured that your own business is a logical and achievable goal, then a lot of entrepreneurship is about simply keeping going and persevering, even when you experience bumps in the road. It is impossible to get everything right, all of the time, so patience and stick ability are perhaps more under-rated than they should be. Pozzoli‘s narrative does a good job of reminding you of these values, and so it’s a good reminder of what it takes to succeed by reading this book.
