What makes a great entrepreneur?

The other night I tuned in to an ep of Shark Tank just in time to see a shark give the thumbs down, saying “Right product, wrong people.”  She used her own judgment to make that call, but Genius Lessons: Inside the Mind of the Tech Innovator, the cover article in Feb 2015 issue of Entrepreneurship, explores a number of concepts about what makes a great entrepreneur. As you might guess, there’s no easy formula for success. In fact, “some of the traits that make you a great entrepreneur also work against you,” says The Founder Institute’s Adeo Ressi. One thing is clear: passion is a must. According to Valley historian Steve Blank, “You can teach Entrepreneurship, but only to the people who desperately want to learn it.”

The Roaring Twenties

Have you ever thought that it doesn’t matter what you do in your early adult years, as you still have plenty of time to change course and take another path later? Clinical psychologist Meg Jay argues that the choices you make in your twenties have more of an effect on the rest of your life then any you make in the decades after that, and provides true life examples to illustrate it. In The Defining Decade: Why your twenties matter and how to make the most of them now, Dr. Jay discusses: 

  • the concept of “identity capital” (which might be described as the qualities that make your resume stand out) and how to build yours;
  • the value of mining “weak ties” to open unexpected doors;
  • the effects of “sliding, not deciding” in relationships; and
  • making your own certainty

The Defining Decade is in our Popular Books section, and circulates for two weeks.  Check it out!

For another take on life lessons geared toward your third decade, take a look at Tina Seelig’s What I wish I knew when I was 20: A crash course on making your way in the world. This lively and readable account of life lessons and cogent observations is food for thought at any age.  Seelig, MSE professor and Executive Director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, uses anecdotes from many luminaries and her own life to illustrate principles such as:

  • the influence of direct and indirect messages
  • the advantage of challenging assumptions
  • the value of viewing problems as opportunites, and turning failure into success
  • what a successful career really looks like (hint: not a straight line)
  • the importance of doing the right thing instead of the smart thing

What I wish I knew when I was 20 is in our main stacks on the lower level, call # LC 1037.5 S44 2009.  Check it out!
