Description
Young serial entrepreneur Scott Gerber is not the product of a wealthy family or storied entrepreneurial heritage. Nor is he the outcome of a traditional business school education or a corporate executive turned entrepreneur. Rather, he is a hard-working, self-taught 26-year-old hustler, rainmaker, and bootstrapper who has survived and thrived despite never having held the proverbial "real" job.In" Never Get a "Real" Job: How to Dump Your Boss, Build a Business, and Not Go Broke," Gerber challenges the social conventions behind the "real" job and empowers young people to take control of their lives and dump their nine-to-fives--or their quest to attain them.Drawing upon case studies, experiences, and observations, Scott dissects failures, shares hard-learned lessons, and presents practical, affordable, and systematic action steps to building, managing, and marketing a successful business on a shoestring budget.The proven, no-b.s. methodology presented in "Never Get a "Real" Job" teaches unemployed and underemployed Gen-Yers, aspiring small business owners, students, and recent college graduates how to quit 9-to-5s, become their own bosses, and achieve financial independence.
