Taylor spent the last three years meeting with hundreds of entrepreneurs from Los Angeles to Vietnam, Brazil to New York, and worked with dozens of them, in industries from cat furniture to dating, helping them to grow their businesses.

Regardless of the industry, age, race, country, or gender, one simple fact stood out: entrepreneurship was dramatically more accessible, profitable, and safer… while jobs were riskier and less profitable than the public is typically (mis)led to believe.

Based on hundreds of interactions and and dozens of recent books and studies, he wrote The End of Jobs to show others how they could invest in entrepreneurship to create more freedom, meaning, and wealth in their lives.

Quotes by Taylor Pearson  (?)

“While our first instinct is usually attempting to push harder, it’s more valuable to figure out where to push.”
Taylor Pearson, The End of Jobs: Money, Meaning and Freedom Without the 9-to-5

“Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.”
Taylor Pearson, The End of Jobs: Money, Meaning and Freedom Without the 9-to-5

“Because of the qualitative and structural changes to the economy, it’s getting harder to find jobs, they’re more risky, and they’re less profitable.”
Taylor Pearson, The End of Jobs: Money, Meaning and Freedom Without the 9-to-5

“We need the possibility of escape as surely as we need hope; without it the life of the cities would drive all men into crime or drugs or psychoanalysis.”
Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire

“Too many consultants fall in love with their own methodology. Success in this business comes from marketing, not from the depth of consulting expertise. I know that this is heresy to many of you, but all the nonrainmaking consulting gurus are working for somebody else and merely earning a paycheck.”
Alan Weiss, Million Dollar Consulting: the Professional's Guide to Growing a Practice

“Million Dollar Consulting Orchestration: if you don’t blow your own horn, there is no music.”
Alan Weiss, Million Dollar Consulting: the Professional's Guide to Growing a Practice

“Always ask yourself, “Would I be proud of this if it appeared all over the Internet tomorrow?”
Alan Weiss, Million Dollar Consulting: the Professional's Guide to Growing a Practice

“All work is an act of philosophy.”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
