Even readers inexperienced in the entrepreneurial world will find Entrepreneur Journeys by Sramana Mitra to be an inspiring and insightful book compiled with compelling interviews. The book does not bog its audience with jargon or technical phrases making the stories easy to follow in this soft cover. Not to mention, the collection of short vignettes makes a great book for readers always on the rush. Busy readers can peruse the stories at their own pace and savor each moment.
Coming from an extensive business background, Sramana understands the challenges entrepreneurs face when starting and managing their business. She founded three companies as an entrepreneur CEO and worked as a strategy consultant in California since 1994. Her weekly columns in Forbes or her contributions to TheStreet.com reflect a distinct viewpoint on the business world.
With Entrepreneur Journeys, Sramana has an entertaining and engaging style in her works. The interviews in this book showed a positive light delivering a glimpse on how these leaders prevailed over their obstacles. Presented and published by BookSurge Publishing in 2008, Entrepreneur Journeys goes over five sections: Bootstrapping, Taking on Giants, Disrupting Business Models, Addressing Unmet Market Needs, and Tackling Planet Scale Problems. Sramana goes straight to the entrepreneurial issues and address these concerns.
The flow and the interviews were delightful, and I appreciated how Sramana presented each of the twelve inspiring entrepreneurs. Sramana gives readers a look inside these great minds that triumphed over their challenges. Entrepreneur Journeys proves to be a light read with 262 pages and packs a terrific message. Each interview reveals an optimistic perspective during tough times. Especially during the current economic downturn, Sramana motivates readers to discover their long-term goals and understand the obstacles that occur to accomplish this objective.
