I read a lot and especially like biographies, since I like to know what makes people, especially successful people, tick.
Was recently on Amazon looking for my next book. Saw an autobiography by John Holmes, which immediately caught my attention, but because he is successful, although it could be argued that he was very successful in his chosen profession, but because he was a guy who lived a life most people would never dare to live. It takes a lot of guts (or something) to be a porn star...and I wanted to find out about it.
I didn't get the book though...
After reading the reviews of it, most people agreed that John Holmes didn't give an accurate picture of his life. He made excuses, acted like a victim, and blamed other people for his problems. As exposed as he was on film, he was hiding behind something in his autobiography.
People want the truth. They want transparency. They want the highs as well as the lows.
This applies not only to John Holmes, but you and your business as well. Don't wimp out.
