Are you really ready to be independent?
To be a successful entrepreneur, you don''t just need to know how to run a business. You need to know how to run your life when the boundary between work and personal time has essentially been erased. But while there are countless books on setting up a company, there hasn''t ever been a primer on navigating the unique emotional and personal demands of entrepreneurship. That''s what All In is all about: how to thrive in the entrepreneurial lifestyle-and how to avoid its pitfalls.
In All In, Arlene Dickinson tells the truth about the dangers of believing your own hype, listening to naysayers-and ignoring naysayers, too. Dickinson explains why the need for control is a double-edged sword that can get a business off the ground, then cause it to stall. She also discusses what the need for control does to a marriage-and how success can test family relationships even more than failure.
All In will open a new level of dialogue in the entrepreneurial community, bringing often-unspoken truths into the light and showing readers all the ways they''ll be tested in their new endeavour. Packed with Dickinson''s own hard-won lessons, and those of other successful entrepreneurs, All In is for every small business owner who''s ever felt like they''re the only one and every coffee-break dreamer wondering if they can hack it. At its best, the entrepreneurial lifestyle is all about independence-not just financial independence, but the psychological independence that comes from charting your own course-and All In will help readers achieve that freedom.
