Publisher's Summary

As a recent college graduate, there is no better time to take risks especially when it comes to making career choices. All too often, young employees find themselves in unfulfilling jobs with little chance of advancement. But with the right advice, they can strike out on their own and chase their dreams. Through personal experience as a one-time stock broker-trainee turned successful entrepreneur, Robert Tuchman knows what it's like to be stuck and what it takes to break free of a frustrating job and build your career on your own terms.
In Young Guns, he shows readers how to start out on a business venture, how to gain a client base, how to keep those clients, and what they need to sacrifice along the way in order to succeed. He reveals the myths and realities about starting a business when you're young. Filled with real-life examples of entrepreneurs under 35 who have made it to the top, this is the book that will show readers how to go for the gold and lead a passionate, daring and successful life.

Repetitive

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the author hadn't repeated himself for half of the book, espousing how great his company was. If he'd have bothered to explain how, rather than boasting about what he did, it would have been better and more helpful.

Any additional comments?

Great real-life story. I've already found my passion in life so this book could only do so much for me. However, it was great to listen to since it reminded me to follow my passion. I try to remind myself of that everyday and this definitely helped.

For anyone that hasn't found their passion in life yet, this book should be in your pipeline!
