Why you should read The Entrepreneur Equation
Consultant and author Carol Roth takes a straight-up, no-nonsense tone in this easy-to-read guide containing useful, if somewhat obvious, advice. For example, individuals who can’t manage their personal finances shouldn’t try to manage a business. Or future entrepreneurs think that if they run their own companies, they’ll have more free time, though, in reality, they will have less. While Roth writes in an engaging style and provides useful self-analysis questions in each chapter, her book needs more examples of real-world successful and failed entrepreneurs. Future entrepreneurs could be deterred by Roth’s fairly negative tone, although she might be doing them a big favor in that sense. getAbstract recommends this helpful if limited overview to potential future entrepreneurs who must evaluate whether they’re cut out for such a path.
