Featured Reading - So You Want to be an Entrepreneur? - Jon Gillespie-Brown



Many people say they want to own a business, be an entrepreneur, create the next big start-up, but until you've really done it, you have no idea what it's like.

This book will force you to ask yourself the really hard questions about what becoming an entrepreneur really means and whether it's really for you.

Should be a great place to start before you start.


Featured Listening - Time Conqueror - Jackson Browne


Browne's first studio release in six years. Recorded with his longtime band Kevin McCormick, Mark Goldenberg, Mauricio "Fritz" Lewak, and Jeff Young, along with two additional members, Chavonne Morris and Alethea Mills.

He's on tour this fall and I'm going to see him for the fifth time. What can I say, I'm a fan!
