71: Mastering Business Without Business School With Josh Kaufman

Have you ever wanted to get a business school education, but didn’t want to spend the tens of thousands of dollars -- and many years of your life -- going to business school?

Josh Kaufman -- author of the best-selling and foundational business book, “The Personal MBA” -- is here to talk about getting a business school education without having to ever set foot in college. Josh has just released his 10th Anniversary edition of his book, and provides a wealth of knowledge for entrepreneurs at any stage of their journey.

On today’s episode, we talk about everything from how to learn business to measuring the success of your business to creating the systems and processes necessary to keep your business humming along. In addition, Josh provides actionable tips on how to overcome some of the biggest struggles facing entrepreneurs and biggest owners.

Make sure you listen for Josh’s discussion of “akrasia” -- the idea that you know what you should be doing, and what is theoretically best for you, but often, you just can’t get yourself to do it. And then listen to Josh tell us exactly how we can overcome that roadblock and keep pushing forward.

And make sure you listen to the end, where Josh recommends the top 99 business books you should have on your reading list to really propel you and business to success.
