Book Review:

What Does It Mean To Be An Entrepreneur? is absolutely amazing. It was fun, quirky and inspiring. The illustrations are beautiful, full of vivid colors and shapes. It would definitely grab a child's attention. The message really shined through, that you can become an "entrepreneur" if you put yourself into the work. A particular quote from the book spoke to me, "...following your dream wholeheartedly and unwaveringly...even if it seems impossible." Its important that young people know not to give and that you can do anything if you want it bad enough. I would read this book to my younger siblings or any small human. Five stars.
