Description

An inspiring, irreverent manifesto for those seeking to blaze their own path to entrepreneurship and find fulfillment and happiness through bold action and big ideas.

With zero experience and no capital, Miki Agrawal opened WILD, a farm-to-table pizzeria in New York City and Las Vegas, partnered up in a children's multimedia company called Super Sprowtz, and launched a patented high-tech underwear business called THINX.

Miki, a successful serial social entrepreneur and angel investor, pulls back the curtain to reveal how you can live out loud, honor your hunches, and leave nothing on the table. Start your business on a shoestring budget, nail your brainstorming sessions and product testing, and get free press coverage—all while living your best life.

Whether you're a recent college graduate trying to find your way in the world, or a professional with a dead-end job and big dreams, Do Cool Sh*t will make you open your eyes, laugh out loud, and shout, "I can do that!"

Do Cool Sh*t features a foreword by Tony Hsieh, the founder and CEO of Zappos.

        Starred review from July 29, 2013
        Agrawal, who founded New York City's farm-to-table pizzeria Slice at age 25, presents a unique approach to happiness and fulfillment: "doing cool shH t." Her success story is likely to lure potential readers: she's now partnering with Zappos.com founder Tony Hsieh (who contributes the book's foreword) to open Slice: Las Vegas. Offering a combination of vivid stories with action-able advice, Agrawal helps readers define and achieve their personalized versions of success. A cornerstone of her advice centers on mutually beneficial experiences. She encourages the evaluation of all relationships through a mutually beneficial lens and then prompts action, whether it means asking for change or moving on. Throughout, she challenges the reader to continually ask questions and to assess using her "BET" (bullet, eliminate, and take on) system, which consists of creating a segmented list of commitments, affiliations, and people. The result: eliminating the unworthy, nurturing the useful, and initiating new activities that conform with personal goals. Simple yet powerful, Agrawal's process liberates readers from conventional thinking and restrictions, freeing them to pursue their passions and make a living at the same time.
