Overview

The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster: Why Now Is the Time to #Join the Ride

66 PERCENT OF SMALL BUSINESSES FAIL—AND IT’S NOT FOR THE REASONS YOU THINK*.

This book is designed for those new (or early stage) to entrepreneurship or those who have watched from afar and have wanted/wished to join in, but the fear of the unknown has kept them stupefied and in paralysis.

This book will detail the worst (which is not so scary after all) and the best (which is absolutely thrilling) of being in business for yourself and give you the essential skills to be successful (preventing the 66% death rate).

The focus of the book is on the emotional journey one takes when they step onto the wild ride of entrepreneurship. It’s meant to warn (forthcoming fears, doubts and self-defeating conditioning of past/upbringing), inoculate (from the naysayers, dream stealers and pains of rejection and failure) and guide them (building those undeveloped skills of independence, self-motivation and self-accountability) safely past the landmines that blow up (cause failure) of 66% of all new businesses.

Darren Hardy takes his personal experience and that of hundreds of CEOs, business owners and entrepreneurs he has interviewed over the years to deliver the most complete guide to start a new business or improve an existing one. This book is not your typical business advice book, it is a master study guide, a workbook with plenty of extra resources in between pages, you won't be just reading a book you will work and act on it as you read. This book shines a light for those that are new or looking into becoming entrepreneurs, it lets you know what's ahead of the curve so you can be ready for the falls or eager to reap the rewards of your business venture. Darren shares a personal experience on hiring the right people to your team that has made a huge impact on the way I look at my team members. His no-nonsense approach at this vital step is just part of the invaluable information you'll get. This is without discussion the best business book I have read. Read it, study it and apply the ideas and recommendations, read it once a week for a month, then once a month for a year, as you  progress in your business you will find more valuable information to apply, tie it with the DarrenDaily mentorship program, the audio version of the book and you will see a year from now........You will be unrecognizable!!!
