Sintesi dell'editore

There’s never been a better time to start a business—or so the conventional wisdom would have you believe. But with up to 90 percent of businesses failing within the first five years, it’s time to take off the rose-colored glasses and think twice before you invest your precious time, money, and energy.

The Entrepreneur Equation helps you do the math before you start down the entrepreneurial path so you can answer not just “Could I be an entrepreneur?” but also “Should I be an entrepreneur?” By understanding what it takes to build a valuable business as well as how to assess the risks and rewards of business ownership based on your personal circumstances, you can learn how to stack the odds of success in your favor and ultimately decide if business ownership is the best possible path for you, now or ever.

Through illustrative examples and personalized exercises, tell-it-like-it-is Carol Roth helps you create and evaluate your own personal “entrepreneur equation” as you: learn what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur in today’s competitive environment; save money, time, and effort by avoiding business ownership when the time isn’t right for you; identify and evaluate the risks and rewards of a new business based on your goals and circumstances; evaluate whether your dreams are best served by a hobby, job, or business; gain the tools that you need to maximize your business success.

The Entrepreneur Equation is essential reading for the aspiring entrepreneur. Before you invest your life savings, invest in this book!

“One thing readers can be certain of is that Carol Roth will tell it like it is. Her no-nonsense, direct, humorous, and engaging style is part of what makes The Entrepreneur Equation one of the more enjoyable business books to read. But the author also has a serious purpose: to ensure that anyone thinking about starting a business is prepared for it… The Entrepreneur Equation is a definitive guide that will help any would-be entrepreneur objectively assess whether or not to venture into business ownership. Carol Roth’s advice and wisdom will likely make that decision a lot easier.” ( ForeWord Reviews)

Gerber was good. This was a downer.

Too much time saying heres all the negatives. Not enough "This is where u can get help to not be a failed statistic." Yes it's a LOT of work and a big risk. How does listing the negatives to scare people away help? Over suggesting where to find the helpful info? Maybe it's just me, but I think that's counter productive.

My review

Most of the time this book is telling the true.

Really it’s a reality check.

Real, but Almost Pessimistic

I struggled to finish this book to be honest. I am really interested in becoming an entrepreneur and starting my own business. I have been nervous to do it for awhile so I started studying and listening to books to help. She gave some good information but gave everything with a negative twist. Listening to this book made me feel almost negative about being an entrepreneur. I feel like this book was not balanced. I understand the need to share realness, but since this is a business book I think it could have highlighted some positives as well.

Nice Guy Check for Wannabe Entrepreneurs

Carol Roth does a nice job of explaining the perils of entrepreneurship. In an ocean full of feel good books about the successes, triumphs of some, Roth’s book offers refreshing insight.

I dig this book and encourage its consumption.

Great content though do not like narration

Would you consider the audio edition of The Entrepreneur Equation to be better than the print version?

No. The print version is better because I do not like the narration. I had to stop listening several times because I do not like the narration style.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narration is over-enunciated and sounds more forced than natural flow. Specifically the often said word, entrepreneur, detracts from the content.

Essential to any Entrepreneur

Even if you think you know something about running a business this book serves as a sort of entrepreneur check list; it brings up several things you weren't even thinking about, and puts several others into a new perspective. The message can be a little intimidating at times, and that's a very good thing — you need to know exactly what you're getting into. Carol tells it like it is without a lot of sunshine and jellybeans: she delivers your wake up call with both barrels.

I always hope to finish a book and have at least one takeaway, "The Entrepreneur Equation" gave me several. I'm working on a startup, and this book forced me to rethink parts of my strategy, which will save me lots of pain and money in the future. Grateful to have read it and definitely recommend.

Too many metaphors, not enough usable content.

Stuck in traffic, figured I would have nothing to lose. Got too irritated listening to the metaphors and not getting to relevant details of what it takes to run a business. Chapter 5 was all I could take.
