Review: Launch Your Dream

Every one of us has a dream inside worth pursuing, but few of us have a plan of action for our dreams. Launch Your Dream is a detailed plan for fulfilling your dream, whether it’s writing a book,  living a freelance life, or starting your own business.

Author Dale Partridge gave up a corporate lifestyle and pursued his dream of entrepreneurship. He founded StartupCamp.com, and this book distills his Startup Camp teachings into a 30-day plan.

The first nine days involve thinking through your dream, listing why you want to pursue it, and developing a business plan. These first nine days are essential in building the foundation for your startup.

The next section of the book is about developing your platform. You learn how to create a professional brand and persona for your website. He teaches you how to connect with your audience in very practical ways, such as suggestions for posting frequency and what kind of design principles to incorporate into your website.

In the final section, you learn how to create a successful launch of a product or service. You also learn how to keep the customers you’ve gained.

Launch Your Dream is a marketing primer mixed with positive motivation and practical tips. As a self-published author and blogger, I gained several new ideas from this book. I’m also new to the freelance life and I’m looking for inspiration and hope as I build my business. I liked the encouraging tone and the helpful advice from Dale Partridge. The most useful takeaway for me is the template for a business plan. I will use his template to create my own plan and put it into action before my next launch.

Anyone who has a dream in hiding will be empowered to take action after reading this book!

I received a free copy of this book from the Booklook Bloggers program in exchange for my honest review.

Announcing a brand-new summer series on Wednesdays!

By studying Jesus’ examples, you will be affirmed and lifted up, no matter where you are in your faith walk today. Join me on Wednesdays as we look at nine women Jesus valued in a culture that cast women aside. His examples speak volumes into our current culture, when confusion over women’s roles is constantly in the headlines. Gain greater peace as you learn how much Jesus values you as a woman.

You’ll find the Women Who Jesus Loved series here every Wednesday morning through the end of July. I’ll also post book reviews on Mondays and participate in Five Minute Fridays. I look forward to seeing you here this summer!

My book The Fruitful Life is a study on the fruits of the spirit, and my book Newness of Life is about trusting in God’s perfect timing.  Both books are available now on Amazon.

  • Looking forward to your summer series!

    • Sarah Geringer

      Thanks so much, Sarah! You are one of my blogging mentors, and I appreciate your visit!

  • This is one of those books that I feel as if I SHOULD read (Cringing here just a little bit.) because I know that I’m supposed to be more intentional about all the things Dale writes about. And very often your writing reminds me that I need to get down to business a bit more. Thanks for another [gentle] push in the right direction.

    • Sarah Geringer
