For most of us, failure represent the stuff of nightmares. What will happen when there I no money in the bank account? Who will cover the bills? School fees and day care, insurance premiums, milk? When will they cutoff electricity, phone, natural gas and water? How bad is that eviction notice?
Starting with this list of questions Jawwad weaves a tale that takes readers from New York to California in search of the deepest fear of a new entrepreneur – What if I fail?
A touching confession that alternates between the bittersweet reality of a dying venture and the promise of multimillion dollar valuations, Reboot is a journey of self discovery that every entrepreneur can relate to. It is a book of questions and answers that will force us to re-examine our personal prejudices against failure.
