About a Misfit Entrepreneur’s Guide
Everyone wants to be an entrepreneur these days but no one is ever prepared for the emotional rollercoaster ride that it can bring. The constant pressure to put yourself out there, along with the extreme ups and downs of big wins and repeated rejection… it’s hard for many to persevere. A Misfit Entrepreneur’s Guide to Building a Business your Way by Ariana Friedlander and Co-Creators provides key insights to help guide entrepreneurs.
A Misfit Entrepreneur’s Guide helps readers who don’t fit the mold for traditional careers master their own entrepreneurial adventure. Ariana uses a bike metaphor to guide readers, provides excerpts from her own journal to highlight the trials and tribulations of the journey, and prompts readers to blaze their own trail with thought-provoking reflection questions.
In the Forward, Tony Middlebrooks, PhD, and Associate Professor for the Horn Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Delaware writes, “entrepreneurship…requires two key ingredients from the entrepreneur: the ability to see the world differently, and the initiative to pursue their idea. A Misfit Entrepreneur’s Guide to Building a Business Your Way provides the kind of practical, personal guidance that will catalyze both abilities.”
“Original, witty, and inspiring. No one has been ambitious or daring enough to write a book like A Misfit Entrepreneur’s Guide until now. This is a must-read for Misfit Entrepreneurs everywhere.”
—Jonah Berger, Wharton professor and bestselling author of Contagious: Why Things Catch On
“Anyone who meets Ariana is instantly struck by her thoughtfulness, knowledge, and humility, and these values are clearly captured and communicated in this book. Through her well-crafted collection of journal entries, stories, and experiences, she paves a path showing what’s involved in being an entrepreneur. These lessons, successes, and challenges provide inspiration, motivation, and real insight into how to manage yourself and your business while exploring the uncertainty associated with new ventures. She constantly reminds us that being a ‘misfit’—and learning to become comfortable with it and yourself—is really what the entrepreneurial journey is all about.”
—Barry O’Reilly, founder and CEO of ExecCamp, co-author of Lean Enterprise: How High Performance Organizations Innovate at Scale
“Remarkable. Practical. Inspirational. Ariana gives us a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the trials and tribulations of the Misfit Entrepreneur’s journey to mastery. Want to chart your own path? Read A Misfit Entrepreneur’s Guide. Get ready for wisdom and insight that will catalyze your growth and transform you into a successful and satisfied entrepreneur.”
