From the Author
This book started with a video that surprised everyone – including me.
The original intent was to share a compelling and emotional glimpse into the story behind the average entrepreneur. Many people see the end product and have no idea what it takes to get there. These people have not been exposed to the process and it’s a life that some people probably don’t want to see because it’s messy – yet also very rewarding.
Along the way, thousands of people (maybe you) asked if the story and concepts in the video could be captured in a book that people could use to build their own personal plan – a compass of what it takes to become an entrepreneur. I thought that was a good idea… and here it is.
