Why read it?

2 authors picked Start Finishing as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This book came to me at a perfect time. I had at least 12 projects (which are anything to which you will give energy to) rolling around in my head and none of them were being moved forward. Gilkey’s process of helping me narrow down my choices and then prioritize my projects helped me get the clarity I needed and I was able to get two done in just two weeks!!!

Anyone can quit their job in a moment of heat and passion, but few can sustain the process of entrepreneurship, and the rigor it requires. In Start Finishing, Charlie Gilkey lays out a method for getting work done in a way that is sustainable, repeatable, and enduring. He does not lay out standard (unhelpful) advice of “professionals hustle no matter what,” rather, he helps you to discern work worth doing, to set boundaries, and to sustain daily momentum.

From Pamela's list on to build a business worth running.
