Two Must-Read Books for Micropreneurs

The Web Startup Success Guide

Bob Walsh’s new book The Web Startup Success Guide comes out next week.

This book is for software developers who want to start successful web businesses and includes interviews with Joel Spolsky, Eric Sink, Guy Kawasaki, and David Allen. The book covers everything from viral marketing to pricing to alternatives to traditional business structures.

And smack dab in chapter 4 there’s a review of our very own Micropreneur Academy.

The release date is July 20, but you can pre-order your copy today.

Escape from Cubicle Nation

I picked up Pamela Slim’s book Escape from Cubicle Nation a few weeks ago. It’s an in-depth look at the process of moving from a salaried position into entrepreneurship.

Several chapters rang true with my experience, namely the ones with great titles like:

  • I have a fancy title, steady paycheck, & good benefits. Why am I so miserable?
  • If it is so bad, then why am I so afraid to leave?

Pamela is a long-timer blogger and in this book she continues to do an excellent job of exploring the mental and logistical hurdles one faces as you leave corporate employment for the wide open spaces of entrepreneurship.
