While reading Small Business, BIG Vision, I kept thinking one thing: These guys get it! In a world where information is coming at us from all directions, you’ve got to know how to focus on the good stuff and filter out the rest. Let me be your filter on this one—this book is the good stuff!
Craig Newmark - Founder of Craigslist
I’ve never considered myself an entrepreneur. I’m a nerd and always have been. But I believe very much in the message of Small Business, Big Vision. I think having a vision is what’s made Craigslist so successful, and I’m applying the same principle to my new initiative CraigConnects. Entrepreneurs would do well to read this book and absorb its message. The stuff that works best is driven by passion rather than dollars.

Matthew and Adam Toren get to the point of what separates the good from the great in business and entrepreneurship—vision. What’s remarkable about the book is that it actually gives you the insight on how to take passion and turn it into tangible results.

Too often, business books talk in metaphors and forget the practical advice that gets an entrepreneur from one step to the next. In Small Business, BIG Vision, the Toren brothers outline exactly what needs to be done in a logical pattern to reach success, while peppering their wisdom with lots of real-life case studies.
Jeffrey J. Bussgang - Flybridge Capital Partners, author of Mastering the VC Game
A well-written, accessible guide to help entrepreneurs dream big, even in the earliest stages of their venture.
Calvin Ayre - Founder of Bodog.com
So many business books are based on one guy telling you how to do it their way—what they are really saying is ‘I’m awesome, so do what I did’ but this book doesn’t do that. There is no blueprint to creating a successful business and mistakes are not only inevitable but even beneficial in the long term. This book doesn’t do the high and mighty bit but is a great guide to helping you get what you want…pour yourself a large, strong drink and enjoy.
