Never Get a “Real” Job: How to Dump Your Boss, Build a Business and Not Go Broke by Scott Gerber

Never Get a “Real” Job (2011) encourages young entrepreneurs to swear off “real” jobs, foregoing the nine-to-five life in favor of taking control of their own lives. Based on real-world experience and observation, it provides a nuts-and-bolts guide to getting it together and starting up.

  • Young entrepreneurs looking to launch a start-up
  • People wondering what to do with a great idea
  • Longtime employees looking for something new
