I finished “R Is For Ricochet (Kinsey Millhone Mysteries)”, “S is for Silence (Kinsey Millhone Mysteries)” and “Eleven on Top (A Stephanie Plum Novel)” haven’t been released in paperback yet. So, I’m hard up for stuff to read. I resorted to reading stuff that’s good for me. I mean like, books where I’m going to actually learn something! Yew!
I started reading “The Art of the Start : The Time-Tested, Battle-Hardened Guide for Anyone Starting Anything” (Guy Kawasaki) about a week ago. Parts of this book are pretty hard to take since they point out a lot of the areas of starting a business in which I am very weak. Like, not knowing anything about business. Guy Kawasaki, for those who don’t know, worked on the original Macintosh team and was one of the first to use ‘Evangelist’ as a business title. After working for Apple he went on to start several great, successful companies. One of those was Garage Technology Ventures where Guy still spends a lot of his time. I’ve followed Guy for quite a few years now. I enjoy his writing, his insight, and his wit. In The Art Of Start, Guy offers some straightforward, easy to understand, common sense advise about starting. Starting pretty much anything.
I’m only on chapter 3. I’ll let you know how it goes.
The other book I’m reading is “Jesus, Entrepreneur : Using Ancient Wisdom to Launch and Live Your Dreams” (Laurie Beth Jones). I’m ending up with a lot of really good ideas and advice from this book. I recommend it as well, albeit I’m only on chapter 5.
