The Generation Z Entrepreneur

So you're young and thinking about starting a company one day?

Well, you're not alone. 61 percent of high school students and 43 percent of college students say they would rather be an entrepreneur than an employee when they graduate from college. But starting a company is by no means easy.

In The Generation Z Entrepreneur, Alex Heintze details seven key principles to fast-forward your career by adopting an entrepreneurial mindset and positioning yourself to, one day, launch your own venture. Now, this isn't some crazy "drop out of high school or college" or "quit your day job" advice. On the contrary, the book brings in the advice and stories of successful entrepreneurs of all ages: Henry Ford, Reid Hoffman, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson to name a few. Moreover, it looks into the lives of people just like you — young people hungry to follow their dreams.

Whether you want to be an entrepreneur or not, the lessons you learn in The Generation Z Entrepreneur are critical for developing a mindset for success in the 21st century.
