Overview

You don't need this book.

The entrepreneurial spirit is fueled by action, and we can all do more with less in the connected era. If you commit to the adventure of a lifetime and are willing to endlessly persist, we can each achieve career nirvana while inspiring the world around us.

While the title of this book is true, if you're a caffeinated change maker thirsty for what's next, this synthesized narrative will provide innovative energy to help you start that new business, improve an existing company, fire up a side hustle, or evolve your own entrepreneurial ecosystem.
