What if the smartest people in the world understand something that the rest of us don't? (They do.) What if they know that in order to achieve success, they will sometimes have to do things that others may initially perceive as stupid? The fact of the matter is that the smartest people in the world don't run from stupid, they "lean" into it (in a smart way). 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? "No more excuses." Learn how to start something stupid - the smartest thing you can do. Drawing on years of research, including hundreds of face-to-face interviews and some of the world's greatest success stories past and present, Richie shows you how stupid is the New Smart - the common denominator for success, creativity, and innovation in business and more

Review quote

"When I wrote "The E-Myth Revisited, "I wasn't an author and I really wasn't interested in business, but I had discovered something about business that nobody else seemed to see, or understand, and I decided to write a book about it. It came like a gift, a huge aha from out of nowhere, and I ran with it. Today, that 'stupid' idea (everybody told me it wouldn't work!) has created the most successful book on small business ever written because of that one, great stupid idea. I thought I was just lucky. Richie just told me that I'm in really good company. Find out why stupid is now the New Smart. Read it, you'll love it, you'll find out why thinking stupid makes the best sense in the world."--Michael Gerber, the world's #1 small-business guru and author of the bestselling "The E-Myth Revisited"show more
