I have a man crush on David Siteman Garland from TheRiseToTheTop.com. That’s right, a Man Crush!
Why? Not only is his content sexy, but the man behind the content is even sexier! (haha)
In all seriousness, I’ve been friends with David since the first few months he became active on social media, and over the last few years have been blessed to connect in person and do a number of brainstorming sessions with David where we both share ideas on how to grow our businesses (and sometimes talk about how to take over the world).
I remember talking with David over two years ago in his St. Louis condo on when he would be coming out with his first book. Even thought he wrote the book, did all of the planning and research, I still like to think that I had a part in leaving a seed in David’s mind about producing this book. And here we are now, and the book is alive.
I read David’s book already knowing it would be great because of his interesting daily content on “Rise”, his blog. Little did I know that it would actually be one of the top books I’d read all year (and I’d say that even if I wasn’t a close friend).
The reason I love Smarter, Faster, Cheaper is because David shares well more than 101 ways to build your business Smarter, Faster, Cheaper, but he shares so many engaging success stories from himself and individuals/brands in many different industries. I look at it as the one stop shop for building a huge brand and business on a small or no budget.
If you are tired of not being as big of a brand as you would like to be, or don’t feel like spending money on marketing and advertising that isn’t working for you, then do yourself a favor and pick up this book now.
Here is a video I did with David about his book, and some of the other ways to market your business the Smarter, Faster, Cheaper way. (The video is choppy at certain times but picks up after a while)
Like I said, David is a world class gentleman and this book has the potential to make you or your business world class if you take action and implement his strategies.
