What if you could learn more from my failures than from all of Elon Musk's successes combined? Imagine if you could spare yourself years of heartache and self-loathing pounding your head against mistakes I've already made for you.
Amazon best-selling author Lucas Carlson presents an entrepreneurship book unlike any other out there. Most startup books focus on the successes of famous founders, but that success is riddled with egomaniacs and survivorship bias. For every one Steve Jobs, there were thousands of geeks just like him who did everything the same as Steve Jobs but never started Apple. So, following in Steve Jobs' footsteps might never again lead to success.
For that reason, Nassim Taleb and many others say that learning from mistakes is more robust than learning from successes, because almost everyone makes the same mistakes. The problem is most people aren't willing to be open, honest, and totally candid about their mistakes.
In this audiobook, you'll learn:
How to use Bayesian statistics to pick startup ideas
The startup killing problem with most mission statements
Seven things most founders wish someone had told them at the start
How to manage the difficult conversations
How to make a marriage survive a startup
How to think through splitting up equity in a company
Bonus: How to manage founder psychology (some reviewers say this is the most important chapter in the book)
Bonus: A philosophy of entrepreneurship that can add depth and meaning to your work
Listen to this audiobook to find out how to start a business and not make the most egregious errors that plague most founders.

Succinct advice for all potential startup founders
Well written, honest, direct, and succinct advice from Lucas on what he encountered, did wrong, and what you can learn from it. If you are looking to start a company especially a high-tech one, you would be well advised to listen to this book, it won't take long and I would bet that you will listen to it more than once. If the only thing you get from this is that you want to be starting a company that solves a problem people are looking to have solved, rather than solving a problem that no one knows they have. Find the people who's hair is on fire.
Would highly recommend.

What did you like best about this story?
I love how it's told as a story about Lucas' life, then immediately switches to practical tips on how to avoid mistakes he's made
What does Chris Murray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Did not read the book, The narration was lovely just the right levels of clear and upbeat to keep me interested
Any additional comments?

It is nice to hear the story and advices from an entrepreneur who failed and succeeded. He not only talk about the ways to market your idea but also virtues and priciples that you should set up from the beginning and keep till the end.
