Your Next Big Thing

Creating Successful Business Ideas from Scratch (Entrepreneurship, Building a Small Business, Startups)

By Matthew Mockridge

It Takes Small Steps to Bank a Big Idea

Debunking the “eureka” moment and other guru myths: We all want to know the secret to success. Matthew Mockridge is here to shed light on what really lies along the path to victory. There is no such thing as a eureka moment, where everything suddenly falls into place; instead, commitment, preparation, and hard work are the keys to pursuing a passion and making dreams a reality.

Inspiration comes from preparation: Mockridge, creator of one of the biggest electronic dance music touring giants in Europe, began as many young entrepreneurs do—in his dorm room. Everyone wants to find that million-dollar startup idea, and Mockridge reveals what he learned after years of research into creative processes. Vision, design, and construction are among the core aspects that go into making a “next big thing” game plan.

A holistic approach to entrepreneurship and relationships: While Mockridge’s advice comes primarily from his experience as a young, successful entrepreneur, the lessons he shares are applicable not only to starting a business but to social lives as well. This self-help book connects thinkers and disciplines in search of true patterns of greatness and is both instructional and conversational.

Matthew Mockridge’s Your Next Big Thing is your guide to discovering ideas that inspire. Open it up and find:

  • An entrepreneurial rough-guide and “real world” paint-by-numbers approach to creating and running big ideas
  • Advice on time management, business acumen, financial management, and building healthy relationships
  • Practical chapters such as “Matthew’s 10 Favorite Idea-Testing Tools” and “Matthew’s 10 Tips for Mega-Mindsets that Produce Ideas and Get Them Done”

If you’ve enjoyed titles such as The 4-Hour WorkweekZero to One, and Think and Grow Rich, then you’ll find more of the motivation you need in Your Next Big Thing: Creating Successful Business Ideas from Scratch.

Achieve Your Goals in 66 Days

“As a professional athlete, I know the power of a well-planned routine, but what I love about the 66 Day Journal is the combination of success and fulfilment.”  —Flavio Simonetti, professional athlete and Founder/CEO “Coach Carter App”

This daily guided journal by cutting-edge speaker and bestselling author Matthew Mockridge serves as a “training partner” to help you create and firmly integrate healthy habits and routines into your everyday life.

Create new habits―and stick with them. Routines can be hard to establish. Often, our goals require us to make difficult changes in our daily lives. But, we can make those changes and commit to a consistent routine. As readers of the 66 Day Journal will learn, it is through maintaining regular healthy habits that true passion for a healthy lifestyle emerges.

Ask quality questions, have a quality life. If we aren’t asking ourselves the important questions―“What am I proud of? What could I have done better?”―then maintaining healthy habits is harder than ever. This guided journal walks us through the difficult questions we should be asking ourselves every day. The carefully constructed questions combine mindfulness, positive psychology, and proven strategies for increased productivity to help you stay on track.

Dive into Matthew Mockridge’s 66 Day Journal and learn how to:

  • Simplify overwhelming “marathon” goals into 66 achievable mini goals
  • Set a goal using the SMART theory (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound)
  • Visualize where you want to be and work to get there

If you’ve enjoyed titles such as Getting to Good90 Day Cycle to New Habits Journal, or Hello New Me, then you’ll love Matthew Mockridge’s 66 Day Journal: A Guided Journal for Creating New Habits.
