I have spent the last ten years teaching, mentoring, speaking and writing about the journey of entrepreneurship, overcoming fear, doing work that matters, and finding the ability to dance with uncertainty.
All those interactions have led to: Letters to Entrepreneurs.
Being an entrepreneur can get lonely. I wrote this book to let you know that, what you are going through is not unique to you, you are not stupid, you are not inadequate or made a mistake by choosing to be an entrepreneur.
There are many entrepreneurs who struggle with the same challenges that keeps you awake at night.
This book echoes many of the ideas, tips and lessons I have been writing about here for the last 6 years I have been blogging, but it’s completely original work.
Mostly, I wrote it to make it easier for my readers to encourage the change they would like to see in the people around them [and in ourselves].
I wrote it for you, and I wrote it for me, too, to help me get straight about what matters in doing work that makes a difference.
While there are definitely joys of entrepreneurship, there are also significant challenges. Entrepreneurship can feel isolating.
It is when you get lonely, that you need someone who understands your journey to share with you their wisdom.
Letters to Entrepreneurs is a list of lessons, tips, wisdom that I acquired over a period of 10 years of mentoring and learning from startup and seasoned entrepreneurs.
In this book I compile tips and lessons I have picked up from over 100 entrepreneurs I have mentored over a period of 15 years. Some of the lessons are personal lessons, lessons from my friends and colleagues and lessons are from other entrepreneurs.
The book contains over 100 distilled lessons, tactics, mistakes, life lessons, tips, strategies and advices.
If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go farther, go with others.
This books is lessons from journeys travelled with others who have reached far destinations.
About the pre-orders:
The book comes out in February 2019, the 06th to be precise..
My plan is to distribute it horizontally, from reader to reader, from fan to fan, as opposed to top down via retailers and promotion.
For that to work, though, I need a few hundred fans who are willing to take a chance on me and order a pre-pack.
They will get the very first copies from the printer and have an easy way to share it with friends and colleagues. After a start like that, the book is on its own.
I’m announcing this now because I’m about to go to print and need to know how many to make…
My hope is that people won’t be able to resist sharing it, just as we enjoy sharing digital work online.
For many people, of course, they will prefer to wait, to see what others say, and to avoid being an early adopter. That’s fine. Books last.
But, if you are up for it, I hope you will place and order and pay on the link provided at the bottom and dive in so I can make an intelligent decision about how many to print.
Who knows, if this works, we will be able to make the change we seek happen even faster.
Thanks for sharing.
