This is a summary of Josh Kaufman´s The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business. Getting an MBA is an expensive choice - one almost impossible to justify, regardless of the state of the economy. Even the elite schools like Harvard and Wharton offer outdated, assembly line programs that teach you more about PowerPoint presentations and unnecessary financial models than what it takes to run a real business. You can get better results (and save hundreds of thousands of dollars) by skipping business school altogether. True leaders aren´t made by business schools - they make themselves, seeking out the knowledge, skills, and experience they need to succeed. Listen to this book, and you will learn the principles it takes most business professionals a lifetime of trial and error to master. This summary provides the essentials of entrepreneurship, marketing, sales, negotiation, operations, productivity, systems design, and much more in one comprehensive volume. The Personal MBA distills the most valuable business lessons into simple, memorable mental models that can be applied to real-world challenges.
