“If you’ve thought about making the leap to become an entrepreneur, this is a manual for making it happen.”
ADAM GRANT, New York Times bestselling author

About the book
Will your job exist in 10 years? Or even 5 years?

Is your work meaningful and fulfilling or do you find yourself living for the weekend and browsing job listings as a form of escape?

What are your alternatives and how might you explore them?

How can you avoid the pitfalls that many first-time entrepreneurs before you have fallen into?

How do you explore whether entrepreneurship is right for you without giving up your day job?
Amidst this growing discontentment and uncertainty in the corporate workplace, entrepreneurship is thriving and that’s because entrepreneurs see threats as opportunities that aren’t responded to in a timely manner.

In order to respond one must embrace uncertainty, the antithesis of how most large organizations and their people see the world, oftentimes opting to over-plan and end up with a case of paralysis by analysis.

Pre-order the book

This book is a framework to inspire aspiring innovators to make the leap—to evolve from employees/pawns of stagnant and dying corporations suffering “paralysis by analysis,” to successful entrepreneurs who can embrace the right risks, walk the edge of uncertainty with confidence and good judgment, avoid (most) beginners mistakes and turn the inevitable failures into future triumphs. An optimistic book, well-articulated and worthwhile; an antidote to doomsday prophecies about the future of work.
