Great Stocking Stuffers and Gifts for Entrepreneurs for the Holidays
I told my friend Nancy Friedman on her recent podcast that one of the many benefits of hosting a podcast is meeting and speaking to people you wouldn't ordinarily get to talk to daily. In other words, people you admire and respect. Some examples include Warren Greshes, Nancy Friedman, Dr. John Tantillo, Michael Gerber, Dr. Scott Shane, and previous guests from favorite shows like Shark Tank and Under Cover Boss.The list is too long!
Today we will discuss four books that make great stocking stuffers or holiday gifts. They include:
The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About ItAwakening the Entrepreneur Within: How Ordinary People Can Create Extraordinary CompaniesThe Illusions of Entrepreneurship: The Costly Myths That Entrepreneurs, Investors, and Policy Makers Live ByBorn Entrepreneurs, Born Leaders: How Your Genes Affect Your Work Life
The E-Myth Revisited, by Michael Gerber, is the entrepreneurial myth"...the myth that entrepreneurs start small businesses. Many have been fooled into believing that only entrepreneurs venture bravely to establish new businesses. But most companies are not formed by entrepreneurs. Instead, the people who are technicians start them. We will also discuss Michael's fantastic follow-on book, Awakening the Entrepreneur Within, which interestingly precedes the E-Myth Revisited.
Next, we will play our interview with one of my favorite authors, Dr. Scott Shane, to discuss his two popular books, The Illusions of Entrepreneurship: The Costly Myths That Entrepreneurs, Investors, and Policy Makers Live By and Born Entrepreneurs, Born Leaders: How Your Genes Affect Your Work Life.
