"What I've found in my work is that if all you do is study a program or go to a seminar or read a book, the chances of you actually implementing it aren't very successful unless you are willing to take a very important step, and that's to have a coach. I chose to co-author One Minute Entrepreneur with Ethan Willis, CEO of Achieve Today, because I felt his company's coaching program could help readers "put the book to work." So talk to the folks at Achieve Today about their Entrepreneur Coaching program and see if it's a good fit for you."
