Frasier puts it down in real language today's youth can easily comprehend and act on in their own lives. A helpful guide to keeping sane in the doggie, dog world of business. As an old head, on-trip-a-noir....I been there and done that, so it was easy to relate to the real of the deal. I still need to remind myself to not dumb down my greatness to please others. Frasier is generous in sharing sensible business secrets, how to possess positive personal attitudes. His insightful interaction with the good, bad and ugly has helped him overcome "them" and "they" He teaches us as honorable people how to moves consciously in the spirit of "know thyself" and for the good of the community. The kindle version is a great listen, the book is perfect for highlighting and motivating. Every high/middle school should hand out this book on graduation! I'll be purchasing more of this guide to assist my grandchildren in their journey to become greater now and greater later! Well done, young sun, well done!
My wife and I purchased Anthony Frasier's book "Don't Dumb Down Your Greatness" as soon as we heard about it. We just got it in the mail the other day and I'd already gotten about 1/2 way through it.
Last night, my wife wasn't feelin' well and asked me to read somethin' to her, so I had our son come in and we read together talkin' about this book starting back at the beginning again; sharing our own experiences in business and getting feedback from him. He's always been big into gaming, and he's entrepreneurial as well so we have some good conversations. So now, for the 2nd time, I'm at the 1/2 way point in "Don't Dumb Down Your Greatness". We're prob gonna finish that jawn by the end of the weekend.
I'm really appreciative of the author putting time and resources into doin' this work (inspiring the next generation of men and women entrepreneurs), I know it isn't easy. Being people of color involved so early in the modern tech revolution, we all may not have had as many of these examples and in such an accessible way, but as long as we all continue to share knowledge and support 'em, the generations coming up behind us are gonna be good. This book reinforces that to me.
As he talks about in the book, his goal is to influence 100k+ folks in 2016 - well, he can add us to his list.
Anthony and his biz partner James Lopez have been an inspiration of sorts for my wife and I for at least a few years now. Though my wife and I started our biz back in 2001, when we first caught wind of them, we watched their strategy closely for doin' business at The Phat Startup. We saw their level of success. And what he talks about in the book isn't just theory, these guys practiced the techniques he advocates on realness, honesty, boldness, and a whole lot more, but especially always be learning and never shrink back.
The book is designed to motivate you to do something. For me, it reaffirmed more clearly why we decided to start our biz in the first place and for whom, and encouraged us to continually hustle to do things on OUR terms. I think it's a lesson even old heads need - operate your business in a way that's true to your experiences, at a high level, and never forget the value of your own culture; never be ashamed of where you've come from or your missteps. Anthony's successes have proven the wisdom and savvy of approaching business differently and especially not dumbing down your greatness.
UPDATE: When I'd originally written this review it was posted on the website & blog for the Anthony Frasier podcast "Hustle & Luck". I hadn't completely finished the book yet either. Fast forward and I'm still as enthusiastic to encourage folks to read it as much now as I was then. I spoke with my son the other day, and jokingly made the request he read the book before the end of July "As long as you're under my roof you will read the books I say!" ;) ..after both of us had a good laugh, I talked to him about why I thought this book was an important read for him - He's also into video game development and gamer culture (he's doing online training in it now) so the book felt like an ideal fit for him. There's a few young people I'd wished had had this book back in the day cause I think it would've been a great resource for 'em. Many people of color from various backgrounds share some common experiences, and I think prevent among them is the push to tell folks "don't be yourself, hide who you are and pretend to be something different, because you're not enough - smart, educated, rich, whatever". In the book Anthony advocates some critical thinking about why the recommendations to hide who your true self may not be the wisest course of action and encourages something else. You can be independent, run your own biz and do all of these things successfully on your own terms - that's an important message for all of us, regardless of background. So, thank you Anthony again, for sharing so much of your background, especially for so many young people to benefit from.
This was an honest and practical account of the simple things that you can adopt in your life that will reap huge results. I was high-fiving as I read because like the author, i believe it is so important to truly give a damn, and from there so much else falls into place. really inspirational and helpful read, and yes, I live and breathe with a pen and a paper. i am inspired to do '1000' a day also. thank you for sharing, and for loving your/our community and giving back.
I purchased the book after visiting the author's Instagram account. I never heard of the book nor its author until he happened to like some of my IG posts and I am so glad that I was curious enough to check him out. I am not much into tech but I love his personal stories and reading of his accomplishments. The book had some very practical information and was very concise.
I have read too many books on success to even count. This book is quite different. It is more accessible to minorities and other groups that may not be able to relate to other books written by people that don't share their struggle. I was born in the Bronx and see a lot of Anthony in myself. I applaud him for "doing the right thing" in making a book that shares a powerful message while telling it in his own voice.
Highly recommended for anyone trying to find a way...this book helped me do something consistently for the past 2 months now and I can see the results. Short but consise and a jewel that should be past on to your kids.
Business and entrepreneurship aside, this book can guide you through life in general. hats off to Anthony for sharing an intimate side of him and allowing the reader to get a clear idea of who he is. The nuggets in this book can be applied to every day life. Don't sleep on this book!
Anthony is a force in the New York tech scene and has become somewhat of a superstar as the new entrepreneur-in-residence at Newark Venture Partners. The book shows that there's no shortcut to success and it's all about putting in the hard work. If you're thinking about starting a company, I'd highly recommend DDDYG and attending one of Anthony's events if you're in the NYC area!
I've been following Anthony since he was featured on CNN's Black In America where he was in Silicon Valley with the NewMe Accelerator program. Then later watched him continue inspiring people through The Phat Startup. I was looking forward to the release of his book and it certainly did NOT disappoint. Unlike many cookie-cutter entrepreneur books, Anthony took a different approach by actually speaking on entrepreneurship from a personal development perspective. He gave points on what to look for as you work with others, how to conduct yourself, and how to become a better version of you mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, all while sharing his own personal experiences. Without giving too much of the book away, I would highly recommend any entrepreneur to give it a read, because as entrepreneurs, we could all use some great words of wisdom and insight to help us along this rough, but gratifying journey. Thank you Anthony!
This book should be required reading for entrepreneurs but it's great advice for life in general. Life will change for the better once we start believing in ourselves and implementing a plan for success.
