Young Guns by Robert Tuchman - Book Review
Superb! Informative. Filled with great advice. All these terms and more can be used to describe the powerful new business/entrepreneurship book Young Guns: The Fearless Entrepreneur's Guide to Chasing Your Dreams and Breaking Out on Your Own.
At the age of 25, Tuchman founded TSE Sports and Entertainment out of his one-bedroom apartment. TSE went on to appear on Inc. 500's list of America's Fastest Growing Privately Owned Companies. Tuchman had a vision, and he made it happen.
So can you!
"Why Not Me?" This is the question Tuchman says you should ask yourself. The author reminds his readers that successful entrepreneurs build a sense of mission into their lives.
Tuchman shares why he made the Big Decision not to continue working for someone else, a dream many of us probably have, but one that we continue to deny because of our fears. Young Guns isn't a how-to book on starting your own business. This is a book that will empower the entrepreneur in you and move you toward what you've always dreamed of.
In this book you'll learn how to:
- formulate your great idea
- identify your strengths
- make your business stand out in a crowded marketplace...
and so much more!
I especially enjoyed Chapter 5, The Partner Principle, which discusses the importance of choosing the right partner: what you should look for, what roles a partner should perform, and how costly choosing the wrong partner can be.
The one thing I must say about Young Guns is that the author's passion is visible and overflowing right from the beginning. I dare anyone to read this book and not start working toward making his own Big Decision right away. While this book is targeted more toward college graduates, anyone who has dreamed of owning his/her own business will learn much from it.
There are books out there about entrepreneurship, and then there is Young Guns, a highly motivating, passionate and inspiring book that will energize you from the very first page.
