Entrepreneurial Hacks: Practical Insights for Business Builders
About the Book
Wikipedia defines a hack as “any trick, shortcut, skill, or novelty method that increases productivity and efficiency, in all walks of life.” Entrepreneurial Hacks: Practical Insights for Business Builders was written to provide inspiration, knowledge, encouragement, and companionship to you along your entrepreneurial journey. By design, this book focuses on shortcuts to reduce the “noise” and aperture. By doing so, you can increase your opportunities for upskilling, forming new habits, and making better and more effective life and business choices. My sincere hope is this book will inspire you to be better. I hope that you choose better. Only through better leadership, better innovation, better customer experiences, better learning opportunities, better citizenship, better engagement with our calling, and better relationships can we truly become the best version of ourselves. This aspiration is my goal for all of us, including myself.
