WASHINGTON, March 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- How do people decide to start a company or help grow one in its infancy? How do they build those companies? There are plenty of stories about people on the other side of the journey, who have already achieved great success. But what about people in the middle of the process, for whom outcomes are still uncertain? That's what entrepreneur Renny McPherson and reporter Joe Flood—the hosts of the Numbers & Narrative podcast—set out to uncover in interviews with entrepreneurs who are building companies.
In the book Entrepreneurs in the Midst: Stories from Founders, Creators, and Builders (Numbers & Narrative Press; March 11, 2016; ISBN: 978-0-692-63763-0), entrepreneur Renny McPherson and journalist Joe Flood bring readers inside the world of 16 fascinating entrepreneurs as they build their companies. McPherson said, "As I started my first company several years ago, I found that the best advice I got was from people who had started their own companies a few years ahead of me and were in the middle of the journey – not yet on the other side." Flood added, "This book is our effort to provide aspiring entrepreneurs with in-depth stories from current entrepreneurs."
The stories are inspiring, but tempered with honest talk about the struggles and challenges of entrepreneurship, a path none of these individuals took lightly. Entrepreneurs in the Midst is fascinating read for anyone planning to pursue entrepreneurship and looking for role models, or for those curious to know how resilient, hard-working young people are building tomorrow's businesses.
