A 2015 Gallup study of the state of the American workplace found that almost 70 percent of the workforce is not engaged, which means millions of people are showing up to work and killing time, doing the minimum required with little extra effort to go out of their way. That’s what I discuss today with Patrick McGinnis.
Patrick McGinnis, author of THE 10% ENTREPRENEUR: Live Your Startup Dream Without Quitting Your Day Job , found himself in a similar situation early in his career.
With the opportunity to move up the corporate ladder narrowing, thanks to the modern workplace, more and more people are finding themselves to be complacent. McGinnis, Harvard Business School graduate, venture capitalist and originator of the term “FOMO”, shows readers how they can find success outside of their day job by investing just 10% of their time and resources – making entrepreneurship a choice that is additive, rather than absolute.
We discuss ways to do all this, his entrepreneurship journey and ways to figure out what type of entrepreneur you are. Be sure to grab your copy of the book on Amazon.
