Paul B Brown, author of Own Your Future: How to Think Like an Entrepreneur and Thrive in an Unpredictable Economy, published by AMACOM, argues that in order to be successful in any business one must think like an entrepreneur. You donâ€™t have to quit your job and start a new business, but you do have to start thinking of owning your own futureâ€”become more entrepreneurial in your thoughts and actions. Brown stresses that these actions must be in the form of small steps, like a birdhouse builder selling at a local craft fair on the weekends before considering opening up a store. You learn from it, build upon it, and then repeat again. This way, Brown assures, youâ€™ll be able to control your future.
