How to tap the real source of entrepreneurial power in you and in your organization

In The UnStoppables Bill Schley, co-founder of the branding firm Brand Team Six shows how the best practitioners think continuously about two things: The Big Picture and the Little Picture—essence and essentials. The essentials are the business and financial mechanics required of any working enterprise. But the essence is the emotional mechanics to deal with obstacles, risk, fear and failure.

This is how you capture the unlimited power of entrepreneurship to spark a successful start-up or revitalize a mature organization.

Love the writing style, easy to read but really sophisticated ideas. Amazing resources used in Israel and with the Navy Seals to create a brand new idea of what's at the source of entrepreneurship. Makes me think twice about staying my day job...

Can't recommend this enough. The Unstoppables made me a believer...in myself. Schley's writing style is so accessible, I recommend this to anyone who dreams of being a business owner.

I started my own business a year ago and read all the startup literature I could get my hands on (4 Steps to the Epiphany, Lean Startup, Do More Faster, Crossing the Chasm, etc...). Let me say I wish I had this from the start. The book is clear, compelling, and most of all, useful. In the second section, the author unveils the 6 tools of a successful business. This section has had a profound impact on my company. Give it a read and you will see how these 6 ideas define your vision. (I posted these tools up on my mirror.) The first section is quality as well--It speaks to the "emotional mechanics" of overcoming the challenges that prevent you from unlocking your inner-entrepreneur. I have recommended the section to a few friends. Excellent content, like getting a practical MBA in a day. I highly recommend this book.
