Ligia Buzan., Ph.D. ★★★★★

"Creating an Entrepreneurial Mindset" is a little gem that offers numerous invaluable insights to those willing and eager to build a better life. The book is written in a language that is accessible to the everyday person-- mother, father, employee, or laid-off person-- who is bursting with the desire to create a small business, but who does not know where to start, is, perhaps, a little bit intimidated by the whole buzz that surrounds the concept of entrepreneurship, and is a bit frightened of failing at a new venture.

This book made me to redefine entrepreneurship as a mindset rather than just a business term.
