BOOK You may quit your desire to be an entrepreneur if you read this.

The Entrepreneur Equation by Carol Roth is that one book that will make you question your idea of becoming an entrepreneur. It leaves you with lots of reasons to keep your job. But it's been a good read that has actually shown me that the road ahead isn't as rosy as it looks.

I haven't read the book, but I'll point out that one of the biggest predictors of success I've seen among entrepreneurs is love of the process. For those who don't love the day-to-day grind of starting, growing and scaling a business, it's always going to be much worse than a 9-5 job.

I meet a lot of people who love the *idea* of being an entrepreneur, but they hate the reality of it. To them, I recommend getting a job...

Long story short, if you more-than-rarely question your decision to become an entrepreneur, you should revisit the decision.
