Description

Choosing between the stability of a traditional career and the upside of entrepreneurship?
Why not have both?

Becoming a full-time entrepreneur can look glamorous from the outside. Who doesn’t want to chase their dreams, be their own boss, and do what they love? But the truth is that entrepreneurship is often a slog, with no regular hours, no job security, and very little pay.
 
What if there was a way to have the stability of a day job with the excitement of a startup? All of the benefits of entrepreneurship with none of the pitfalls? In The 10% Entrepreneur, Patrick McGinnis shows you how, by investing just 10% of your time and resources, you can become an entrepreneur without losing a steady paycheck.
 
McGinnis details a step-by-step plan that takes you from identifying your first entrepreneurial project to figuring out the smartest way to commit resources to it. He shows you how to select and engage in projects that will provide you with upside outside the office while making your better at your day job. He also profiles real-world 10% Entrepreneurs such as...
•Luke Holden, a cash-strapped recent college graduate, who started his own lobster-roll empire and oversaw much of its first year of operations, all while working full time in corporate America
•Dipali Patwa, a designer and mom whose side project designing and selling infant clothing is now a sensation.
•A group of friends who met at a 6am Bible study class and went on to start a brewery that now generates millions in sales .
 
A successful 10% Entrepreneur himself, McGinnis explains the multiple paths you can follow to invest your cash, time, and expertise in a start-up—including as a founder, angel, adviser, or aficionado. Most importantly, you don’t have to have millions in disposable income to become a 10% Entrepreneur. When you put McGinnis’s 10% principles into action, you’ll quickly start racking up small wins, then watch as they snowball into your new (and far more entrepreneurial) life.

        April 1, 2016

        McGinnis has an MBA from Harvard Business School and has been a venture capitalist and private equity analyst. He founded Dirigo Advisors after a decade with firms on Wall Street to provide strategic advice to multiple firms, start-ups, individuals, and entrepreneurs all over the world. With the financial crisis of 2008, McGinnis conceived and developed the concept of the ten-percent entrepreneur who could have the security, safety, and learning potential of full-time employment while developing their own business. This, he felt, would allow him to develop and nourish his business skills as well as build interactions and alliances with chosen peers and advisors to form a network for further ventures. McGinnis outlines several paths to excel as a ten-percent entrepreneur that consider the investment of time, resources, and expertise needed to launch successful start-ups. Additionally, the author, who serves as an advisor to the World Bank, includes multiple appendixes useful to potential ten-percent entrepreneurs. Index not seen. VERDICT An intriguing, beneficial handbook for those considering various types of investment ventures by someone who is well qualified to offer guidance.--Littleton Maxwell, Robins Sch. of Business, Univ. of Richmond
