Entrepreneur Stuart Skorman―the founder of Elephant Pharmacy, Hungryminds.com, Reel.com, and Empire Video―grew up in a retailing family in Ohio. He worked every kind of job, from cab driver to professional poker player to CEO. In this entertaining, personal account of his coming–of– age in the business world, Skorman gives an insider’s view of what it takes to start a business from the ground up.

Stuart Skorman offers his hard–won lessons in business for any entrepreneur or small businessperson who wants to create a company that has a heart and soul. He reveals what he learned about marketing while working a stint as a rock band manager and bares his soul about his failure during the dot–com bubble. He describes in vivid terms the roller coaster ride of the entrepreneur in good times and bad and explains how to survive in today’s uncertain business environment.

"Here is another ′hyper kid′ who turned his childhood handicaps and failures into success and happiness as an adult. This book will be an inspiration to all future entrepreneurs and a good read for just about anyone who enjoys a great adventure."―Paul Orfalea, founder, Kinko′s, and author ofCopy This!

    If you ever wanted to really know what its like to learn from another person's experience this book will amaze you. Being a person seriously interested in entrepreneurship and starting a string of businesses someday, this book has inspired me and endowed me with an of awareness of the up and downs of being a serial entrepreneur. As well as picking up a few cracking tips from someone whose done it along the way.Written by a self confessed serial entrepreneur he takes his lessons from life with a great deal of humility and self-awareness and transfers them into this well written book. Its packed full of insights and lessons that the author has picked up from various ventures (and other pursuits) and writes in great depth about his own weaknesses when it came to getting these businesses up and running.The book itself is well structured and at the end of various chapters he highlights and summarises the various pieces of wisdom that was gained from the experiences outlined in the chapter preceding it. It is like being in the mind of the author as he reflects on the lessons learned from the experience.The content of the book is well grounded and isn't the airy fairy kind of book that tells you everything will be ok if you prescribe to a certain plan of action. Rather, this book is a realistic account of what you can expect in pursuit of becoming a serial entrepreneur.I loved that he advocates not re-inventing the wheel and what to expect when you start a business that no one has done before. Reading about this experience is worth the price of this book alone.A great read, more focussed than an autobiography, more insightful than a business book. A great addition to my library. The entrepreneurial world needs more books like this one.
