Book Review: So You Want To Be An Entrepreneur?
So You Want To Be An Entrepreneur: How to decide if starting a business is really for you by Jon Gillespie-Brown.
I've had this on my shelf for a while, mostly because I didn't think it would apply to you or I.
It is primarily written for people who are in a job, thinking about venturing out as an entrepreneur.
However, it will also remind those of us already in business why we started in the first place! You'll be reconnected with your passion.
It's written as an 8-part mentoring session, so the language is very reassuring, but the harsh truth of running a business is laid out in plain language.
By the end of the book (or before) you'll know if you're cut out for this whole entrepreneurship thing or not. You'll know if your idea is in line with your passion and aligns positively with all aspects of your life. Deep stuff, really. Important stuff.
You'll have access to free resources, tips and worksheets.
My favorite feature are the powerfully inspirational quotes found throughout the book.
You even get to help other entrepreneurs when you purchase a copy (quoted from the SYWTBAE website):
“I plan to donate the proceeds from the sale of this book to an organization that I feel is making a meaningful difference, the Grameen Foundation. Grameen Foundation is a US-based nonprofit that seeks to empower the world's poorest people to lift themselves out of poverty with dignity through access to financial services and to information. Learn more at www.grameenfoundation.org”
Find out if you're cut out to be an entrepreneur, or develop a sharper focus on the vision and future of your current business. Either way, you'll come away thinking about yourself in ways you never have before.
