Start Night with Jon Acuff. Start Book by Jon Acuff. Start says Sami.



That was going to be my whole book review of Jon Acuff’s new book, Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average and Do Work that Matters.

One word. Done.

The book is called Start. Jon Acuff wants you to Start. So why would I waste any more words than that when you don’t need to read about this book, you need to start acting as a result of this book!

I know, I know, you haven’t read it yet.

So what.

Why let that one little detail get in the way of stopping everything right now to pursue your dreams?


I got to attend Jon’s “Start Night” back in February and I was marked by his not-so-subtle brand of humility, humor and, most notably, passion.

Of course, the night would not have been complete without Dave Ramsey himself chiming in. He gave us insight as to why he believes Jon has been so successful – and how anyone can mirror that success:
Be Grateful. Be Good. Be Hard-Working.

Dave’s endorsement of “Start” resonated with me:
It moves the needle in people’s lives. It’s the book for the under-employed, the unemployed…or those that with they were. Go from average to awesome!

Jon explained how to accomplish that last sentiment very simply:
There are two paths in life: the road to average & awesome. To get to average, do nothing. <To get to awesome> be the person you think you can be. – be your secret self.

The thing I like most about this book is that it moves you from inspiration to action.

So instead of telling you more of what I think, I’ll share what I know Jon wants you to do:

It’s time to punch fear in the face.
It’s time to escape average.
It’s time to do work that matters.

It’s time to START. 

Start won’t be released until April 22, but you can pre-order Start on Amazon.com right now
