Overview

The spirit of an entrepreneur is often characterized as one of unbridled passion and deep determination. While this may be true, there are many other issues you must be aware of in order to excel at any entrepreneurial endeavor.

Nobody understands this better than author David Feldman. With over twenty-six years of experience in business and law—and as an entrepreneur himself—Feldman has worked with hundreds of successful entrepreneurs. Over the years, he's also seen some very smart people make some very serious mistakes. With The Entrepreneur's Growth Startup Handbook, he now shares many of the lessons he's learned with you.

Inspired by a series of columns on entrepreneurship for Slate.com, this timely guide will help you determine if you have the right makeup for the travails of entrepreneurship, and put you in a better position to navigate the biggest challenges one faces in creating and growing a business.

While there are many how-to books out there on entrepreneurship, none are quite like this. Filled with illustrative examples from Feldman's own career as well as high-profile entrepreneurs such as Bill Gates and Howard Stern, this book opens with a realistic assessment of the qualities you need to succeed as an entrepreneur. With this information in hand, Feldman moves on to address the seven essential issues associated with starting and growing something exciting in the entrepreneurial world. You'll gain valuable insights on everything from the nuts and bolts of building a business—finding the right employees, partners, and investors—to staying focused while working on new ideas, balancing work with the rest of your life, and dealing with burnout or boredom. Even if you have run your own business for some time, there are helpful suggestions and areas of coverage that apply equally to those in the middle and more mature stages of building a business.

Rounding out this detailed entrepreneurial discussion is a look at the most likely reasons why businesses fail, and some strategies for helping you avoid them. Feldman also presents the brief biography of a man who embodies so much about what type of person should pursue their own business, and how he overcame various obstacles to achieve success.

Whether you're thinking about starting a business, have already done so, or work with or advise entrepreneurs, you can benefit from the essential insights found here.
