INTERVIEW WITH JOE GARNER
So many young people are programmed from an early age to go to school, get good grades, attend college, and then hope for a good-paying job. This used to be the “safe” approach to obtaining a successful life. But every once in awhile, a maverick like Mark Zuckerberg, comes along and bucks the trend. This person doesn’t play it safe. Instead, they take risks. Perhaps they drop out of school. They put their heart and soul into building a company that has never existed before, offering a crucial product or service that no one else is providing. By doing something so disruptive and wholly original, they attain success on their terms. As a culture we celebrate these gutsy individualists as entrepreneurs.

PREPARATION FOR ENTREPRENEURS
When being an entrepreneur isn’t a choice in life but a necessity, Skip a Step will help open your mind’s eye to the world of business and the future obstacles that await you on your journey, including how you can counteract and overcome them with swiftness, style and grace. While thousands of books have been written on adult entrepreneurship, very few have been made to assist our young inspiring leaders who are trapped solely by the constraints of time. Thankfully, authors Lisa Caprelli and Michael Ashley composed this book rich in information for such a purpose, containing decades of entrepreneurial experiences that strengthen the skin and sharpen the mind with each page absorbed; each sentence serving as a word of advice to our inspirational generation to develop the right attitude for success in all its forms – wealth, health, and relationships.
Skip a Step is a preparation course for young, soon-to-be, and current entrepreneurs, intended for those real-life situations that formal schooling doesn’t teach. Each chapter provides a valuable life lesson shaped by a unique yet familiar design. Every true story comes from a different individual person, demonstrating how we all feel the same emotions at the end of the day – this book is here to help you deal with those emotions so you can get ahead of your game early on. Through documenting interviews with thirteen top professionals in their respective fields, Skip a Step provides you with the mental and emotional tools needed to make practical use of your personal and business life so that they can work for you in return. With the help of Skip a Step, you can learn all these attributes and more:

By achieving self-discovery through personal trials, this book will show you how to obtain essential lessons from hardships instead of drowning in them. Life is challenging.
