Entrepreneur Myths: The Startup Reality: How to Avoid the Pitfalls of Starting and Growing Your Business [Kindle Edition] - worth $9.99

Damir Perge (Author)


Publication Date: March 17, 2013

4 Reviews ★★★★★

Thousands of entrepreneurs fail each year because they fall for the common but untrue myths about entrepreneurship. These entrepreneur myths propagate like a virus because no one has taken the time to aggregate, analyze, reflect and filter this valuable information from an entrepreneur and venture capitalist perspective.

Entrepreneurs are the key driver of the global economy and entrepreneur success and survival depends on using entrepreneur frameworks that dispel entrepreneur myths and provide competitive advantages. The competitive edge entrepreneurs need to succeed is the knowledge that can only be gained by learning real-life lessons from real-life entrepreneurs and investors. Those lessons aren't learned in any business school. Entrepreneur Myths exposes the reality of the myths that can kill any startup business.

As both an entrepreneur and venture capitalist who's been out there in the trenches for 25 years, Damir Perge shares his exciting adventures and the rollercoaster ride of being in the entrepreneurship and venture capital game. He learned what it takes to be an entrepreneur in fabled Silicon Valley and beyond. As a venture capitalist, Perge invested more than $50 million into over 25 startups. As an entrepreneur, he launched 10+ startups in high-tech, publishing, media, energy and more.

Whether you're an existing business, starting your own business, a successful entrepreneur or an aspiring young entrepreneur starting your dream out of your college dorm room, Entrepreneur Myths gives you the education not found in any textbook, MBA program or entrepreneur group. Most of the material is available only to those in the inner circle with money and time to burn. If you want the entrepreneur mindset required to be an entrepreneur you'd better start reading now, and hang on tight for the entrepreneurship ride.

Here's a sample of the 50+ myths you must avoid in order to start your own business and be a successful entrepreneur:

- Raising capital is easy if you have a great idea
- Sweat equity is extremely valuable
- Valuation is based on numbers
- Dumb money is bad money, and smart money is good money
- You need capital to develop a product or service
- All it takes is a great idea
- Venture capitalists are vultures
- Raising big money is harder than small money
- Venture capital is the best way to fund your venture
- Angels are angelic
- VCs are smarter than you
- You need capital to develop a product or service
- You must have an office
- The journey is the reward
- You'll be your own boss
- You can raise money overnight


Includes two questionnaires with answers: Are you are an entrepreneur? and Should you start your venture?


Damir Perge is the founder of entrepreneurdex, a media company for entrepreneur and investor learning and sharing. An entrepreneur and investor, Perge's first venture was formed while he was a member of the Entrepreneur Club at Southern Methodist University (Dallas, Texas). With more than 25 years experience, he's worked with ventures in the technology, internet, media and publishing, entertainment, energy, and manufacturing sectors raising more than $300 million in capital for various companies and investing more than $50 million into startup and emerging ventures. He's sat on the boards of 11 companies, served as editor-in-chief of Futuredex, a private equity magazine. Born in Yugoslavia, Perge immigrated to the U.S. in elementary school. He became a U.S. citizen at age 16 and represented the U.S. on the National Soccer Team. He was a McDonald's Soccer All-American and received a full scholarship to play at Southern Methodist University. Perge's hobbies and interests include complexity science, lean and JIT manufacturing, business strategy and business modeling, social technologies, film production, venture capital, mathematics, art and soccer.

FASTBREAK: The CEO's Guide to Strategy Execution [Kindle Edition] - was $6.99

Is Strategy Killing Your Business?

There is no strategy without execution, and there is no execution without leadership.

Strategies are meant to carry companies onwards and upwards to lofty performance and competitive advantage. Sadly, in the majority of firms, big and small, strategies are rarely delivered and often die a silent death on a dusty shelf in the corner office, along with failed strategies from years gone by.

In a recent McKinsey & Co study of 197 companies, despite 97% of directors believing they had the right ‘strategic vision’, only 33% reported achieving significant strategic success. Other studies confirm this wide gap between strategy and execution.

The important thing is not having a strategy, it’s getting it implemented. ~Jack Welch

Strategy is not a document, a binder, PowerPoint charts, graphs, customer or competitive analyses. Strategy is a contact sport and does not exist without robust execution actions (not plans, actions). Too often good strategies fail to get implemented because of the overriding focus of most companies on solving day-to-day business problems. There is no time nor energy nor resources left to execute on strategic initiatives.

What is needed is shift by the senior leadership team to focus on strategy execution. Current studies show that less than 5% of senior executive time is spend on strategy execution. But focus in not sufficient. Also required are a robust strategy execution process and a business methodology, complete with accountabilities, clear metrics, cascading objectives, employee engagement, governance, transparency and teamwork. A recent BSColl study showed that those organizations with a defined strategy execution process significantly outperform those without.

FASTBREAK: The CEO’s Guide to Strategy Execution is a new book by John R Childress, a pioneer in leadership, culture change and strategy execution and is a no-nonsense, straight talking how to book for those interested in effective strategy execution. In just 200 pages Childress presents the rationale for effective strategy execution, the reasons why most organizations fail, and a step-by-step approach, complete with templates, to building your own strategy execution roadmap and process. The book also filled with case studies from the likes of Ford, Continental Airlines, Lycoming Engines, and others.

Elephant Girl: A Human Story [Kindle Edition] - was $4.99

Jane Devin (Author)


391 Reviews ★★★★.5

Written in three distinct voices -- child, teen and adult -- Jane Devin takes readers on an intimate, imaginative and often harrowing life journey. Born unwanted and raised without love, the child-author invents a rich inner life to see her through years of trauma. Leaving home at 16, the teen-author struggles to find happiness and a sense of place in a world that feels confusing and unfamiliar. Then, years after stumbling into an adulthood mired in tragedy and broken dreams, the woman-author finds herself at a crossroads. The choice she ultimately makes is as stunning as it is brave.Told in unflinching and often lyrical prose, Elephant Girl goes beyond a singular life story to speak of powerful, universal truths and the ability of the human spirit to redeem itself.

In a culture of bootstraps and bromides, it has become unfashionable to talk about the long-term effects of child abuse and being raised without love or nurture. Unlike psychologist Harry Harlowe's infamous experiments with monkeys and maternal deprivation -- where all his subjects ended up abnormal or dead from what has been termed "emotional anorexia" -- abused children are supposed to be more resilient. In fact, it's a common belief that child abuse isn't really that big of a deal and that abused children will eventually enter into adulthood with the same knowledge and tools as those who were not abused, or at least be able to gain them quickly and easily. Less acknowledged is the fact that there can be long-term and even lifelong physical, social and emotional consequences of child abuse. Oftentimes, the one affected doesn't even realize what those consequences are until well into adulthood. High anxiety, hyper-vigilance, thwarted sexuality and brain damage that went undiagnosed until the age of 46 were just some of the after-effects experienced by the author of Elephant Girl: A Human Story.

The story of Precious ends with her teenage years. Jeannette Walls concludes Glass Castles as a college student. In A Child Called It, Dave Pelzer is removed from his abusive home by age 12 and eventually finds a loving foster family. In contrast, Elephant Girl: A Human Story is about what happens when there is no clear path to follow, no outside guidance and no dramatic rescue--when the only life-saving graces are imagination, self-determination and, ultimately, an undefeatable sense of hope.

This is not an easy story to read. Those who enjoy reading about miracles or quick solutions will surely be disappointed. Those looking to cast blame or buoy their belief that they could have survived better will find plenty of ammunition. However, those who are willing to see beyond the convenience and labels of bootstraps and bromides -- who believe that human experiences are as diverse and complex as those who have them -- will find much to relate to in this insightful and rarely told and ultimately hope-filled story.

The Memoirs of a Prague Executioner [Kindle Edition] - was $2.99

Josef Svátek (Author)


Publication Date: December 30, 2010

15 Reviews ★★★★.5

A young man is about to graduate from medical school when a sudden shift of fate changes his life forever. He becomes stuck in the most detested profession for the rest of his life, and he is on his way to becoming the most well-known executioner in the history of Bohemia.

Master Jan finds himself in the center of the historical events of the time. The religious and political turmoil of Bohemia culminates in the 1621 White Mountain Battle. Czech Protestant rebels are defeated by Catholic forces, and Master Jan is to execute 27 men who are his fellow Protestants.

The Old Town Executioner gives the reader a first hand account about how justice was carried out by the medieval law. While his memoirs offer an intriguing account of the manners and values of late medieval society, his observations about human nature may come as a surprise. The law and society have changed since the 17th century, but people have changed very little.

(To view the video book trailer for this book, click on "Visit Amazon's Nancy Owens Barnes Page" in the More About the Author section.)

A True Story of Courage, Perseverance and Survival

Born in the dusty heart of Oklahoma in 1916, ten-year-old Melvin sees a photograph of a cabin in the Alaska wilderness in his fourth-grade geography book and dreams of living there. Nearly fifty years later he builds a 47-foot boat in his Arkansas backyard, launches it on the Arkansas River, and cruises 10,000 miles to Alaska by way of the Panama Canal. Melvin has never been south of the United States/Mexico Border and has never been on a boat in the open ocean.

"Learn by doing," he says.

In South to Alaska, author Nancy Owens Barnes takes readers on two journeys. On one, readers follow a young boy's dream that begins in a one-room, Oklahoma schoolhouse in 1926, and ends decades later on an island in southeast Alaska. On the other, readers become a passenger aboard the Red Dog as it cruises along the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers to the Gulf of Mexico where, in 1973, Melvin begins a solo journey along the Caribbean coasts of Mexico and Central America, through the Panama Canal, then into the Pacific Ocean to Alaska. Plagued by mechanical problems, international fraud, violent ocean storms, threats of foreign jail, illness and loneliness, Melvin fears a deadly end before reaching the place of his dreams and returning to the woman he loves.

A true story of courage, endurance and survival, South to Alaska chronicles Melvin's 10,000-mile journey through a dangerous world he knows little about, to a world he cannot forget.

About the Author
As the daughter of the main character in South to Alaska, Barnes watched her father’s dream weave its way through the lives of her family. In 1971, she boarded the Red Dog for the first leg of its journey along the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers.

Barnes was featured in the Winter 2010 issue of Coeur d'Alene Magazine as one of nine North Idaho authors who have achieved acclaim for their work. Her writing has appeared in a variety of publications such as We Alaskans and Idaho Magazine, and in literary journals such as The Lyric and Snowy Egret, the oldest independent journal of nature writing in the United States. In 2008 she received the Zola Award for Poetry from the Pacific Northwest Writers Association. She has also authored a short anthology of nature writing titled Moose for Breakfast, as well as a brief guide for beginning writers titled How to Swat the KILLER BEs Out of Your Writing. Barnes received her BA degree from Vermont College of Norwich University where she studied creative writing.

Robots will soon begin taking human jobs in places like retail stores, fast food restaurants, construction sites and transportation. The key technology that will fuel the transition is inexpensive computer vision systems, and the number of human jobs at risk numbers in the tens of millions. More than half of the jobs in the United States could be eliminated.

With half of the jobs eliminated by robots, what happens to all the people who are out of work? Marshall Brain's book Manna explores the possibilities and shows two contrasting outcomes, one filled with great hope and the other quite uncomfortable.

Join Marshall Brain, founder of HowStuffWorks.com, for a skillful step-by-step walk through the robotic transition, the collapse of the human job market that results and an surprising look at humanity's future in a post-robotic world.

Then consider our options. Which vision of the future will society choose to follow?

38 Reviews ★★★★★

Imagine walking into an eye doctor's office for the first time in your life expecting to walk out with a cute pair of red cat-eye frames--only to learn you suffer from an incurable eye disease and are already legally blind.

In her powerful memoir, Focus, Ingrid Ricks delves into the shock of discovering at age thirty-seven that she was in the advanced stages of Retinitis Pigmentosa, a devastating degenerative eye disease that doctors said would eventually steal her remaining eyesight. Gripped with the terrifying fear that she wouldn't be able to see her two young daughters grow up, would become a burden to her husband, and would lose the career and independence that defines her, Ingrid embarks on a quest to fix her eyes that ends up fixing her life.

Through an eight-year journey marked by a trip to South Africa to write about AIDS orphans, a four-day visit with a doctor who focuses on whole-body health, a relationship-changing confrontation with her husband and a life-changing lesson from her daughters, Ingrid learns to embrace the moment and see what counts in life--something no amount of vision loss can take from her.
