The “19 Touchstones” is a very readable, little gem for the aspiring entrepreneur. Ed summarizes a lifetime of experience as to what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur, and he covers it well.
As the founder of 3 companies, including one that became one of the one hundred largest companies in the United States, I can relate to all his “19 Touchstones”, and yes it does take all 19.The tough part as always, although, the “19” is an excellent summary, the question is: are you able to actually apply them in your life as an entrepreneur?
“19 Touchstones” will help you, but in the end, it’s not just what you’ve read, but what you are able to apply successfully that counts.
