Overall useful book

Book is Short and to the point. Examples of successful entrepreneurs are fairly detailed. Narration is not inspiring.

Good overview

Good overview of the different parts of e-commerce.

I found watching a Shopify tutorial (1 to 2 hours) on YouTube, and then reading this book to be helpful.

Narrator was fine with me.

Narration Is Just Fine

A great, brief read. Full of fantastic case studies.

Concerns over narration are overblown.

Listen, and then do.

don't buy in audio form

The author should have hired someone to read. She drones on, I found her voice leaving me tired and depressed. She puts zero energy into the performance and it has a sarcastic, "see I'm right" undertone to it.

Lacks Concrete Direction

I consume a vast number of business books, how to's and others related to business. I am a small business owner and entrepreneur looking to grow. Employees are not on the agenda, been there, done that. Elaine Pofeldt's book held such promise as to offer insight and direction. No such luck. Nearly every case study has employees or contract workers. Many have had to borrow money to grow and out source their tasks. Over all this is a mildly positive book that might inspire you to move forward on your dream project but don't look to it for the stepping stones towards growth or ideas. Her reading voice was fine.

Boring!

This is truly in my top 5 of most boring books. Her voice is so monotone!

Bunch of anecdotes

This book as a bunch of anecdotes. These sound to me like several articles about successful enterpreneurs that were put together into one book. No material compared to 4 Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris.

Very basic guidance, and very poor narration.

This entire effort would be better as a blog post. The author drives at the same handful of rudimentary points, citing 3 to 4 sources over and over, while stumbling over the narration. Save yourself the time, do a Google search for "entrepreneur tips."

Should have hired a narrator

The book was fine, but not really worth the money. It’s basically just the author listing successful businesses - nothing new.
And with 2 hours left I had to quit. Her voice is not made for this and she should have hired someone to narrate it.
I’m disappointed.

Great book!!!!!! Boring Narration!!!!!

This book has a lot of great information. The information I got however, was from the written form. The Author should have had someone narrate for her. Her monotone voice made it hard to concentrate on the topic. If she got better after the first hour, I apologize for this review. One hour is all I could tolerate.

Helpful, relevant, and timely

Would you listen to The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business again? Why?

Yes, I actually have already done so three times! Pofeldt does a great job drawing out the relevancy of different businesses and letting the owners speak for themselves.

What about Elaine Pofeldt’s performance did you like?

Elaine reads well and has a good voice.

Any additional comments?

One of the more useful books if you are looking to (or have) start a business.

Inspiring

I read an article by the author which was so useful I went out an bought this audio book the same day. Just like the article, this book is full of great info for starting a business, but from a perspective that you don't get in a lot of other books. The emphasis is that in order to be able to scale a single person or husband/wife business up to a million dollar level, you will likely have to be able to outsource some functions. She has some interesting perspectives on how to do that. This book is certainly worth a read. Her perspectives on health care costs were also comforting, just knowing that I am not alone in paying ridiculous monthly bills.
However, I do with the author had not chosen to read it herself. I think a professional narrator would have been a more enjoyable listen.
