In this book, a political powerhouse and mother of two thriving entrepreneurs interviews the moms of over fifty of today’s most successful innovators and—based on her findings—provides ten rules for raising confident, fearless, self-made individuals whose ideas and drive will change the world. Is your child passionate about something? Maybe it’s music, sports, theatre, writing, building things, or helping others—the kind of creative pursuits that create distinguished leaders and make change in the world. All parents want their kids to have success, but how do you help them cultivate their talent and vision for a personally fulfilling and financially successful life? Once you’ve recognized their drive and passion, how do you set your little trailblazers free? Raising an Entrepreneur presents seventy-six stories from the mothers of some of the most successful entrepreneurs today. Entrepreneurs are the new rock stars—they’re the ones who turn their passions into ingenious projects, because they’re willing to risk failure to make their dreams come true. Highlighting the various achievements of innovators from a wide range of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds—such as Geek Squad’s Robert Stephens and Nantucket Nectars' Tom Scott, nonprofit founders like Mama Hope’s Nyla Rodgers and Pencils of Promise's Adam Braun, profit for purpose creators like TOMS Shoes' Blake Mycoskie and FEED Projects’ Ellen Gustafson, activists like Mike de la Rocha and Erica Ford, and artists like actress Emmanuelle Chriqui and songwriter Benny Blanco—and with photos of the entrepreneurs as children, these inspirational interviews will provide guidance and support on nurturing your own change maker. Not every kid will be an entrepreneur, but all kids have something that makes them unique. If you’re seeking a way to nurture your children’s passions and help them harness their talent, drive, and grit into a fulfilling life purpose, this book is for you. With thes

Despite the world's elation at the Arab Spring, shockingly little has changed politically in the Middle East; even frontliners Egypt and Tunisia continue to suffer repression, fixed elections, and bombings, while Syria descends into civil war. But in the midst of it all, a quieter revolution has begun to emerge, one that might ultimately do more to change the face of the region: entrepreneurship. As a seasoned angel investor in emerging markets, Christopher M. Schroeder was curious but skeptical about the future of investing in the Arab world. Travelling to Dubai, Cairo, Amman, Beirut, Istanbul, and even Damascus, he saw thousands of talented, successful, and intrepid entrepreneurs, all willing to face cultural, legal, and societal impediments inherent to their worlds. Equally important, he saw major private equity firms, venture capitalists, and tech companies like Google, Intel, Cisco, Yahoo, LinkedIn, and PayPal making significant bets, despite the uncertainty in the region. With Startup Rising, he marries his own observations with the predictions of these tech giants to offer a surprising and timely look at the second stealth revolution in the Middle East-one that promises to reinvent it as a center of innovation and progress.
