Review of ‘CEO at 20’

Posted on Updated on

When he was a sophomore at Louisiana State University, Ben Gothard started his own social media marketing company. While, it’s tempting to say he started on a wing and a prayer, in actuality, he laid out a business plan, obtained funding, and registered the business, becoming a CEO at age 20. In CEO at 20 Gothard outlines the practical steps that a person, at any age, can take to realize his or her dreams and achieve success.

Unlike a lot of how-to books that go on for hundreds of pages, often rehashing points until they become boring, Gothard’s book lays it out briefly and moves on. This book can be read in less than an hour; twenty minutes if you’re a speed reader; but if you’re a budding entrepreneur embarking on your first—or your twenty-first—business venture, you’ll probably read it several times.

A useful reference for your business library. I received a free copy of the book in exchange for my unbiased review. I give it four stars.
