Richie Norton The Power of Starting Something StupidIt’s been a while since we gave away free books here on Marketing Pilgrim, but we have a great one for you today.

We’ve got 3 copies of Richie Norton’s newly released The Power of Starting Something Stupid to giveaway. If you think the title is catchy, wait ’til you read this challenging book. You’ll realize that the “stupid” idea that you have swirling around your head, may not be so crazy after all. In fact, you may be in the excellent company of some of the world’s most notable business owners.

In The Power of Starting Something Stupid, Richie Norton redefines stupid as we know it, demonstrating that life-changing ideas are often tragically mislabeled stupid. What if the key to success, creativity, and fulfillment in your life lies in the potential of those stupid ideas? This deeply inspiring book will teach you:

• How to crush fear, make dreams happen, and live without regret.
• How to overcome obstacles such as lack of time, lack of education, or lack of money.
• The 5 actions of the New Smart to achieve authentic success.

And now, how you can win a copy…

How to enter this contest: Simply leave a comment below and we’ll randomly pick 3 winners (deadline for entry is 10am ET this Thursday March 7th).

  • Writerseitz

    I have stupid ideas all the time – finally someone has written a book about it! Please please please help me encourage mor stupid thinking globally by giving the free book which I may incorporate into my stupid mantra!

    I have to admit a lot of curiosity. Looking back, my “safe” moves have all felt like traps while going down less traveled paths were more likely to bring a reward. Yet, there’s the paradox: if I read this book then am I playing it safe by following advice that reaches out of the safety zone? Would that unravel the entire risk/reward structure?

  • I wanted to say something intelligent but all I can think of is Forrest Gump. Stupid is as stupid does…

  • Avil Beckford

    I’ve been looking for a book like that for a long time now. I need a kick to start something stupid!

  • Great title for a book, would love to read it, as I have some really stupid ideas at times and can learn how to put them into action. As the old saying goes; “There is no such thing as a stupid idea”. I will certainly buy the book, if I do not win. Have a great day!
