Bold: How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World by Peter H. Diamandis is a fascinating read that will most definitely inspire entrepreneurs with fresh, bold new ideas. Exponential Technologies are the key to unlocking the potential of our future. By joining in on this wave you will at least be aware of how major growing technologies are impacting our world already. Thinking big is the first step to going big. 

Bold CoverThere are many ways to solve a problem so it takes the proper mindset and perspective to be able to locate these simple problems and turn them into huge opportunities. Peter not only gives great motivation to the seasoned entrepreneur but also he delves deeper into the mindsets of some of the most successful entrepreneurs and their backstories. These key attributes are what separates average entrepreneurs from powerful entrepreneurs..

Last but not least Peter share some background on crowd tools for sourcing, funding and more. Platforms such as Kickstarter and Angel.co are great for funding for your idea. Tongal, TopCoder and Kaggle are amazing services anyone can use to either help create a project or outsource a video, coding or data project. If you are the type of person who comes up with great ideas all the time but lack the motivation or know-how to create them consider Quirky: The Invention Platform. For music artists, ReverbNation is an excellent way to get discovered as music and talent is crowd picked from a community of music fans 

Leadership combined with the continued search and expansion of exploration for humanity will benefit our exponential potential as a human species. Take educated risks and outweigh the benefits and possibilities of what you are currently doing to what you could be doing. Bold is an excellent manual on today’s exponential technologies and is a superior entrepreneur resource for thinking at scale and discovering the awesome power of crowd-powered tools.

About the Book

From the coauthors of the New York Times bestseller Abundance comes their much anticipated follow-up: Bold—a radical, how-to guide for using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking, and crowd-powered tools to create extraordinary wealth while also positively impacting the lives of billions.

Bold unfolds in three parts. Part One focuses on the exponential technologies that are disrupting today’s Fortune 500 companies and enabling upstart entrepreneurs to go from “I’ve got an idea” to “I run a billion-dollar company” far faster than ever before. The authors provide exceptional insight into the power of 3D printing, artificial intelligence, robotics, networks and sensors, and synthetic biology. Part Two of the book focuses on the Psychology of Bold, drawing on insights from billionaire entrepreneurs Larry Page, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Jeff Bezos. In addition, Diamandis reveals his entrepreneurial secrets garnered from building fifteen companies, including such audacious ventures as Singularity University, XPRIZE, Planetary Resources, and Human Longevity, Inc. Finally, Bold closes with a look at the best practices that allow anyone to leverage today’s hyper-connected crowd like never before. Here, the authors teach how to design and use incentive competitions, launch million-dollar crowdfunding campaigns to tap into ten’s of billions of dollars of capital, and finally how to build communities—armies of exponentially enabled individuals willing and able to help today’s entrepreneurs make their boldest dreams come true.

Bold is both a manifesto and a manual. It is today’s exponential entrepreneur’s go-to resource on the use of emerging technologies, thinking at scale, and the awesome power of crowd-powered tools.
