ABOUT THE BOOK Are you curious as to what it takes to be an entrepreneur? If so, then The Entrepreneur Ethos is for you. Based on interviews, research, and my 20 years of experience, The Entrepreneur Ethos explains the challenges entrepreneurs face and the traits, values, and beliefs that entrepreneurs use to make “dents in the universe.” The Ethos provides a framework for entrepreneurs to build a more ethical, inclusive, and resilient entrepreneur community that is ready for the challenges of the 21st century. By living the Ethos, entrepreneurs can take on these challenges all while holding themselves to a higher standard. This allows entrepreneurs to build fantastic businesses that benefit themselves and society.
