Editorial Reviews

Entrepreneurs thrive on inspiration, and Chicken Soup for the Entrepreneur's Soul offers plenty to stoke the imagination and spur success. Narrated warmly by voice performer Alan Robertson, tales in this collection include the founding story of Tom's of Maine, as told by owner Tom Chappell, cottonfield hospitality success story The Shack Up Inn's creation, and the eclectic multiple successes of Bob Young, founder of Lulu.com and owner of Red Hat and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Throughout, Robertson's confident performance provokes listeners to get off the couch and do what it takes to make that great idea a reality.

Publisher's Summary

Fulfill your dreams....

Chicken Soup for the Entrepreneur's Soul is a compilation of short stories from entrepreneurs, both large and small, who share their experiences of success, failure and courage, with a little helpful advice mixed in.

Many of these stories, told for the first time here, will enlighten you to new methods of entrepreneurship or simply help you believe in the possibilities of getting started. People such as Doris Christopher, a stay-at-home mother, who introduced her love of cooking to others through founding The Pampered Chef; Thom Chappell, who stuck to his instincts when developing Tom's of Maine and kept value at the core of his business; and Carol Gardner who intimately shares a desperate time of debt and divorce, until along came a bulldog named Zelda, followed by a greeting card line - Zelda Wisdom - which became one of Hallmark's number-one sellers. These entrepreneurs and many more will inspire you with their amazing life experiences and fascinating beginnings.

Good Stuff!

Sometimes we forget that ordinary people have achieved extraordinary results. This compilation of stories is a great reminder that we all have the same opportunities available.

If you're just a bit low on motivation then this audio book is the tonic you need.

Inspiring stories from famous entrepreneurs

Enjoyed listening to each story. They were all so different but they all had something useful to relate to, no matter which industry you're in.
