Whether you want to start a business, reinvent your career, or you're just feeling stuck, Who Owns The Ice House? shows how a subtle shift in perspective can transform your life.
While iconic entrepreneurs like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk often steal the spotlight, this book sheds light on the invaluable wisdom and insights hidden within the stories of everyday "unlikely" entrepreneurs; those who start with little or nothing yet manage to triumph against the odds. In a world that favors top performers, we rarely stop to ask ourselves: How do underdogs win?
In this transformative book, Pulitzer nominee Clifton Taulbert teams up with entrepreneurial thought leader Gary Schoeniger to deliver a powerful and compelling story that captures the essence of an entrepreneurial mindset as a framework for thinking that can empower ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things.
Inspired by Taulbert's remarkable life story, Who Owns The Ice House?
chronicles his journey from the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta to become an internationally recognized author and entrepreneur. While Taulbert describes how the influence of an unlikely entrepreneur altered the course of his life, Schoeniger distills the universal principles derived from countless everyday entrepreneurs. What emerges is a radical rethinking of entrepreneurship as a mindset that can empower anyone to succeed.
Whether you're an aspiring entrepreneur or you're ready to chart a new course in life, this book will show you how to:
- Uncover hidden opportunities within your everyday life
- Start where you are and use what you have to get where you want to go
- Overcome self-limiting beliefs that hinder your ability to prosper and thrive
- Tap into the wisdom of experienced entrepreneurs
- Create the life you envision instead of accepting the status quo
- And so much more
By combining Taulbert's story with universal life lessons gleaned from everyday entrepreneurs, Who Owns the Ice House?
shows how an entrepreneurial mindset can change the course of your life.
