Ignite the entrepreneur within!
How to adopt the mindset of an entrepreneur. Whether or not you desire to become an entrepreneur yourself, in these uncertain times the mindset will help you not only survive, but thrive, not matter what endeavor you pursue. 50 Interviews will allow you to grasp the two most important attributes employers are looking for today: 1) Passion that indicates you are showing up for more than just a paycheck and 2) An entrepreneurial drive.
Very few books these days combine short vignettes with powerful direct impacts that can be used immediately. The ROI for 50 Interviews is two minutes tops. Brian’s formulaic approach enables the reader to extract the collective insight and experience of 50 divergent entrepreneurs. His dialogue throughout the book allows us to vicariously ask the questions we would have wanted to ask any successful entrepreneur and learn succinctly what worked for them. -Michael R. Webb, Co-Founder, Aubice LLC
There are two types of people in this world; those who ponder and those who act. 50 Interviews: Entrepreneurs showcases the latter, showing us that with enough desire and persistence, anything is possible. The progress of our society depends on those who act and this book is a celebration of their contributions.
Through the process of interviewing, a truth emerges as to why some people act and others don’t. Their answers offer real life wisdom, insight, and an honest glimpse into the mindset of a true entrepreneur. Readers will explore the perspectives of ordinary men and women who took destiny into their own hands and pursued their entrepreneurial stirrings.
These entrepreneurs are living proof that anyone can create something from nothing. They inspire us to discover and follow our own versions of the American dream. They teach us that failure is the pathway to success, a burning passion the essential fuel, and having a purpose bigger than ourselves leads to true fulfillment.
Whether you are unemployed, unfulfilled in your work, or just seeking a better future, let the 50+ entrepreneurs featured in 50 Interviews inspire you! You’ll begin to grasp the key distinctions of the entrepreneurial mindset.
“I wish I had a copy of 50 interviews when I launched my first company, I would have covered much more ground a whole lot faster.-Mike Michalowicz, Author of The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur”
Excerpts from the interviews:
“It isn’t what you know, but what you are determined to do that makes the difference. Knowing actually gets in the way.” – Michael Gerber of E-Myth Worldwide
“My biggest fear in life was to die doing work without meaning or impact. Don’t waste your time in a vocation you don’t enjoy. If you woke up and were told “Today is the last day of your life”’ would you go to work? If the answer is no, you’re in the wrong job.“ -Jon Payne of Western Air Enterprises
“It’s only when you have the courage to step off the ledge that you realize you’ve had wings all along” -Gail Goodwin of Inspire Me Today
50 Interviews: Entrepreneurs is a must-have for any serious entrepreneur. As a successful author, writer’s coach and part-owner of a small press, I can attest to the pure satisfaction of creating and running a business you love, but also the myriad challenges. One of the characteristics of true entrepreneurs, though, is that we never stop learning, and reading Brian Schwartz’s interviews has given me new insights and inspiration. I’ve been reading an interview a day to spark my creative energy and focus on the expert advice from each business owner. This book is great not just for those considering entrepreneurship, but for those of us living the dream. – Teresa R. Funke
