Actual Amazon.com Reviews...

"Jim Kukral's new book pisses me off. And not because it's a lousy book, and reading it was a waste of time. His book pisses me off because in it, Jim interviews really, really, successful people who ARE living their dreams. And, I'm jealous. I want a turn, you know?" - Joel Libava

"I loved this short, informative, encouraging e-book. The stories of others who have been successful building a business around their lifestyle is a wake up call for me to get off my butt and do it! Thanks Jim for this book!" - Sienna

"I was having kind of a blah day, I read this book, now I feel like a million bucks and have renewed inspiration to go make a million bucks." - Eric Woodard

    Thanks Jim for bringing us Jeremy's insights. I've seen that people are indeed afraid to jump into the water when it comes to social media. It's only when they commit on a personal level and begin to develop those online relationships, that they begin to realize what it's all about and what it can do for them. It's like there's a moment of truth when they find that there are real people on the other side, and those real people want to talk, want to be listened to – and, hey, also want to listen!
