Last month I wrote that I was working on an e-book in 2012 but couldn’t finish it on time. Now, however, the e-book is almost ready. I expect to launch it next week. The title of the book is A Dent in the Universe: 36 Small-Business Lessons from Steve Jobs.
As you might know, I believe that one of the best ways to learn about life is to study the lives of exceptional people. Doing that can help you figure out the best ways to do things. It can also save you time since you don’t have to learn many things yourself the hard way.
With that in mind, I make an effort to extract lessons from the lives of successful people. Each of them is different so we can learn something different from each of them.
Here, for my first e-book, I choose Steve Jobs as the subject. Since Jobs was a businessperson, naturally the lessons are related to business. I want the lessons to be applicable to the readers of this blog, though, so I wrote them with small businesses in mind.
Why is the topic of small business relevant to the readers of this blog? Because having their own business, I believe, is the way to go for many people. It’s always good to have more control over your livelihood, especially given the uncertainty of the economy. Even if you don’t plan to go full time with your business, it’s still a good idea to diversify your income sources.
Steve Jobs, of course, is a good role model here. He built two successful companies (Apple and Pixar) and revolutionized different industries such as personal computers, animated movies, and music. And he started as a small business.
Whether you are thinking about starting your own business or already have one, my hope is that this book can help you achieve your full potential.
