Product description

Review

"If you’ve thought about making the leap to become an entrepreneurr, this is a manual for making it happen. Steve Glaveski has done it successfully, and he shares his experiences and insights to make the transition easier."
ADAM GRANT
New York Times bestselling author of ORIGINALS, GIVE AND TAKE, and OPTION B with Sheryl Sandberg

"This book is a framework to inspire aspiring innovators to make the leap—to evolve from employees/pawns of stagnant and dying corporations suffering “paralysis by analysis,” to successful entrepreneurs who can embrace the right risks, walk the edge of uncertainty with confidence and good judgment, avoid (most) beginners mistakes and turn the inevitable failures into future triumphs. An optimistic book, well-articulated and worthwhile; an antidote to doomsday prophecies about the future of work."
WHITNEY JOHNSON
Thinkers50 Leading Management Thinkers, author of the bestselling Build an A Team, and critically-acclaimed Disrupt Yourself

"A must read for anyone looking to make the transition from what Steve calls 'miserably comfortable' at a large organisation to the freedom and fulfilment that comes with entrepreneurship."
CY WAKEMAN
Author of No Ego: How Leaders Can Cut the Cost of Workplace Drama, End Entitlement and Drive Big Results

"Steve takes his personal learnings from years of doing the work and packages them up into one concise book – making his hard-won insights available to all of us."
PASCAL FINETTE
Singularity University Chair for Entrepreneurship and Open Innovation

"Being a successful employee and a successful entrepreneur require two different toolkits. This book helps people acquire the tools they need to make the move successfully"
NATHAN CHAN
CEO and Publisher of Foundr Magazine

"At its core, this book is about transformation. Beyond a conversation about how you work and make money, it is a guide to re-imaging a life that you fully own."
SHERRY WALLING, PH.D.
ZenFounder

"Lots of people dream of walking the path from employed to entrepreneur, but Steve Glaveski’s actually done it. Best of all, he took notes on what works and what doesn’t and now he decided to show you how."
DAVID BURKUS
Author of FRIEND OF A FRIEND

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for Entrepreneurs but anyone looking for purpose in their work!
Reviewed in the United States on 18 January 2019
When picking up Employee to Entrepreneur I was worried that it would also mean I needed to start thinking about a business idea. What I found instead was a book about helping people get out of their rut and avoiding the pitfalls that many entrepreneurs face.

Steve approaches the subject of entrepreneurship less from a "look what I did and do this yourself" mentality to lessons that can be applied each day and even in your current role. The way he does this, and I found most refreshing, was through a mix of ancient philosophy (Socrates, Marcus Aurelius, etc) combined with work by today's futurists (Adam Grant, Alec Ross, etc), that often ties into best practices for people looking to change their current work situation.

The final piece of the puzzle that made this book whole-istic (pun on its way...) is how much Steve also values personal well being. Whether you have trouble focusing, find yourself overwhelmed at work, or just want to live a healthier life Steve firmly believes that to be fully present as an entrepreneur you must also have your physical and mental health figured out.

This is a great read and something I will be returning to time and again for years to come. Thanks Steve!
