I’ll be direct in my request. I’ve written a book on entrepreneurism that fills a gap in content that has been missing in the market place. After starting, running and selling a business of ten years the inspiration for From Idea to Exit came to me. The book covers the evolution of the entrepreneur and the entrepreneur’s business from idea, startup, running and exit. New methodologies and theories are shared that inspire the dreamer and existing entrepreneur.
I’m currently running two new startups, I’ve been an adjunct teaching entrepreneurism, mentor for Founder Institute, board advisor for Loyola University of Chicago’s entrepreneurism program and volunteer for NFTE. That keeps me busy, and subsequently I do a poor job of promoting my book. The book has received three national awards in the category of entrepreneurism and I regularly receive praises from readers.
From Idea to Exit is a mission with the purpose of inspiring and educating entrepreneurs. I want my target audience to have the book in hopes that it helps them take well educated and calculated action on their dreams. Unfortunately, I can’t devote the needed time and effort to get the word out – on a bootstrapping author’s budget mind you. Therefore, I look to the community to help spread the word. My purpose is not about book sales, but to continue to receive responses such as the one below:
I just finished reading your book, and felt compelled to thank you. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and found it more than the great majority of books I pick up, that have very little substance and are merely surrogate cheerleaders with little else. I found it in the airport on my way to the annual HIMSS (Healthcare Information Management Systems Society) conference for something to read on the plane. It was well-worth the money and time – and I’ve already re-read the first half, and will keep it close at hand for ready reference.
I’m planning on embarking on my own journey – which I’ve been trying to flush out for a couple of years. And, your book has been encouraging to me as I try to get out of my risk box and move ahead. I’m somewhere between the napkin and a fully built business plan stages, and have a novel idea that should reap excellent rewards if I can execute well. I’m excited to get started, and need encouraging thoughts as I move ahead, and your book was a pleasant surprise.
Thanks again, for sharing your story and insights along your entrepreneurial journey!
If you have a method to promote From Idea to Exit to your audience I would greatly appreciate your effort – as will those who entrust your guidance and message. I’m asking you to blog, post, discuss or any other method available that would let your members know about From Idea to Exit. Let’s get more entrepreneurs doing what they do best – launching businesses!
