Books on Entrepreneurship: How to Become an Entrepreneur

Discovered these books at the University of California Irvine bookstore a few weeks ago.  We were there buying workbooks for my husband’s physics classes and saw these books in the same aisle.  I’m beginning with the Lean Startup.  I love these sorts of books because I feel inspired and it gives me great ideas.  It makes you realize that for many successful people, things didn’t come easy for them and that life was full of failures for themselves too.  That these are all valuable lessons that shape us, into hopefully, better or stronger versions of ourselves.  Being on a college campus made me feel young again and also old too at the same time.  They looked like kids, just like we must’ve been too in college.  At the time though, I thought I was so grown up, but looking back now, I didn’t know anything and I still don’t know what I’m doing.  We were the only parents walking around there though with gray hair, rolling around their kid in a stroller.   Anyway, I would love to take this class at UC Irvine one of these days.
