A baptism of reality for anyone with an ounce of entrepreneurship fervor.
Matt Bowman takes a shot at a Top 10 Gifts for Entrepreneurs list in VatorNews this week. “If there’s a special startup owner in your life, you might try giving him or her one of the following gifts. If it falls flat, remember that rapid iteration is key,” he quips.
But hey, I can play this game, too. What about an eye-opening book to read over the holidays? My top entrepreneurial gift recommendation this season is “A Good Hard Kick in the Ass,” delivered in book or digital form, of course.
Author Rob Adams, director of the ultimate university-sponsored venture startup competition, Moot Corp, and a long-time entrepreneur and investor, is just the guy to deliver the kicking. His book is a baptism of reality for anyone with an ounce of entrepreneurship fervor. “A Good Hard Kick in the Ass” is designed to motivate positive attitudes and approaches, and avoid myths and illusions that sidetrack ventures before they can get off the ground.
And yes, it is available for the Kindle.
Update: Moot Corp is now the Texas Venture Labs Investment Competition.
