Everything they never told me before I became an entrepreneur. That’s what this book was for me. So many insights I either learned the hard way, or I am still learning. I’ll tell you what hit home for me was some of the mistakes early founders make when starting a company. Catching these every-day screw ups before you make them could save you from considerable time and ﬁnancial loss.
