Becoming an Entrepreneur: How to Find Freedom and Fulfillment as a Business Owner Reviews
I'm not an entrepreneur, but I am a freelance (independent) editor. (Disclosure: I am the editor of Jake's book.) What I liked most about Becoming an Entrepreneur was Jake's message that anyone can create a business or self-made source of income, no matter what his or her personality type. As an "introvert," I long thought having my own business in an extroverted world was not possible. The answer, as Jake explains, is self-knowledge. When you know, and therefore can utilize, your personal strengths and weaknesses, it frees both you and everyone else to become part of "a vast network of independent contractors" — in which you exchange value (skills) for value. No matter what type of business you start, and Jake tells how he knew nothing about his product when he started his business, you can choose and carry out whatever responsibilities at which you excel, and delegate or learn the rest. As Jake asserts, we live in the best time historically for self-made businesses. If you're looking for a book that will support your dreams — whatever they may be — and a thorough explanation of the practical steps that you need to take in order to carry them out, this is it. Jake shares the hard-won information gained with personal experience, and he shares it enthusiastically and thoroughly. His book is invaluable to anyone who wants to leave behind the world of the “employed” and join the world of the free.
Encouraging entrepreneurshipI found Jake via his podcast show - The Voluntary Life. I decided to get the book because Jake does excellent book reviews so I had a positive expectation prior to reading his book. The beginning of the book discusses the idea of starting your own business. The next half is advice on navigating the road once you start. It is not a 'how become an entrepreneur' book. Jake's book is about becoming or considering entrepreneurship and suggestions/advice from someone who has had his own business. I found the possibility of entrepreneurship less daunting after reading his book.
Author's style is simple enough, so people whose primary language is not English, can read, understand, and appreciate the book, but it is far from being simplistic. I doubt that I would be able to find such clear and accessible book written in or translated to Polish. During long years of public schooling not once have I heard of ideas shared by Jake in his book. Thank You.
This is a must read for anyone teetering on the brink of starting their own business. Jake talks about how state education leaves us ill prepared to start and run a business. He then shares practical, real world advice based on his own experiences.
I enjoy listening to Jake's podcast and this book was no different. It was full of useful information for anyone working on building a business, plus many ideas that I don't think most entrepreneurs have thought about. Overall, worth your time to read.
Good and perfectly clear. A remedy for anyone on the brink of deciding that there is no good employment available for them in this world
Full of encouragement and practical advice. A succinct book with good ideas about how to start your own business by establishing the right processes and mindset from the beginning. I’m also a big fan of Jake’s podcast (A Voluntary Life), where he dives deeper into some of these topics.The best part of the book for me was that he recognized the mental “hurdles” somebody coming from an employee background must face when evolving to become an entrepreneur.
