Book Review: Never Get A Real Job: How To Dump Your Boss, Build A Business and Not Go Broke

December 19, 2010 | Comments: 0 | Views: 103

Any intrepid 'trep (that's the new lingo for 'entrepreneur') is going to hear, constantly, "When are you going to get a 'real job'? " Unemployment in the youthful sector has reached epidemic proportions. More than 81 million young people on this planet are without work according to the International Labour Organization.

It's that bad, or worse in the U.S. Per the Pew Research Center, about 40% of America's young people have been unemployed or underemployed, since 2008.

What's the answer? The same answer that is generating monster response for all of the unemployed, irrespective of age or gender: Becoming an intrepid 'trep.

Whatever it takes, our entire cultural and educational mindset must refocus its lens on teaching people to take control of their financial futures. How to create streams of income and become self-sufficient.

Case in point: Scott Gerber, now referred to by media as an 'Entrepreneurship Crusader." His mission? To promote a new movement of 'treppies. Scott established the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) this past October to gather leading entrepreneurs to mentor the next generation.

Scott is also the author of a new, best seller: Never Get A Real Job,: How To Dump Your Boss, Build A Business And Not Go Broke. Though his efforts to promote and teach the principles espoused in his book, the YEC now contributes to far-reaching media platforms such as the Wall Street Journal, Entrepreneur and Mashable.

Gerber is developing a rep for his cut-to-the-chase, no nonsense business advice. Business pundits are calling him the "Simon Cowell" for Gen Y. His information is solid and easily followed. For example, one chapter of Never is "Nine Ways To Become A Google Superstar." Even seasoned internet marketers could learn from the pointers given here.

Gerber knows what he is talking about. Without the benefit of personal connections or an Ivy League MBA, Gerber has erected several successful businesses.

"The work hard, get good grades and go to college, get a job' mantra is dead," per Gerber.

Irrespective of your age, Gerber's insights on how to build a business from the ground up, starting with nothing are practical and easily put into play. An added perk, he also gives tips on how to sustain a new business, how to constantly analyze, tweak and refine business services and functionality.

Never Get A Real Job is well worth the read no matter your age if you have any interest in changing your present financial circumstances. Besides learning how to dump your boss, build a business and not go broke, you will find even more life-changing strategies and perceptions.

Do not borrow this book. Buy it. You will want it as a constant reference. Your boss (eg you!) will thank you for it.
