I have read many books like this and one thing that is a certain turn- off is a book that promises large sums of money very quickly and with very little work. These "get rich quick" types of books are common and they all make lofty promises and "guarantees" of great, limitless wealth. This book does talk about getting wealthy, but it is far more realistic in its approach. Langemeier doesn't guarantee great riches and she doesn't lead the reader to believe success will take place overnight. On the contrary, she talks about the demands of owning a small business; the commitment; the necessity of an exit strategy; and the gradual build- up to success. This is one of the many positive aspects of this book. It shows how financial independence can be reached, but it never claims the road to success will be smooth and completely free from bumps, roadblocks, and detours.
I like the multi- step approach of this book and the fact that it covers so many different parts of the process. The first few chapters talk about the start- up period and they cover everything from the decision to start clean vs. the decision to buy an existing company to the initial phase of brainstorming for ideas and identifying existing skills. Like Langemeier correctly points out, everyone has some specific skill set that can be converted into a full- fledged cash machine. For some, the skill might be something physical, like landscaping. For others, it might be something that requires more thinking, like private consulting. Whatever the skill, most everyone has several of them and it is only a matter of deciding on which skill(s) are best to use when building a cash machine.
Overall, The Millionaire's Guide to Creating a Cash Machine for Life is a very good book about starting a new business and developing it to its fullest. It isn't an exceptionally long book, so don't buy it with the expectation that you will find everything you need to know and an answer to every question as it relates to a small business. This isn't an exhaustive book and it only covers the most essential steps to build a business. But what it does cover, it covers quite well and it doesn't give the budding entrepreneur a false sense of hope. It's a very good book and one I recommend to anyone who is serious about starting and growing a business of their own.
