“…if you don’t chase your dreams, someone will hire you to build theirs.”

It’s the dream of many people to be their own boss. To be able to call the shots, to be in charge of their own company, their own future; it’s something that a large percentage of the population wants. But so few can actually say that is what their lives are like. More and more people remain living in their fantasy, longing for the day when they will be able to stop living with their heads in the clouds, and actually see

[Note: This book was provided free of charge by BookLook/Thomas Nelson Publishing. All thoughts and opinions are my own.]

It should go without saying that this author is not writing anything that is particularly inventive or creative in seeking to present a model for contemporary entrepreneurship that is lightly, if at all, baptized in any kind of Christian faith [1]. Admittedly, I expected there to be at least some focus on the relationship between our passions, our profession, and the truths of

Every one of us has a dream inside worth pursuing, but few of us have a plan of action for our dreams. Launch Your Dream is a detailed plan for fulfilling your dream, whether it’s writing a book, living a freelance life, or starting your own business.

Author Dale Partridge gave up a corporate lifestyle and pursued his dream of entrepreneurship. He founded, and this book distills his Startup Camp teachings into a 30-day plan.

The first nine days involve thinking through your dream,

Do you work the 9-to-5 shift in drudgery? Do you wish that you can be following your passion? Well, Dale Partridge seems to think so. Citing that people are well suited to an entrepreneurial lifestyle, Launch Your Dream is a book about how you can leave your day job behind for something you’re more passionate about—whatever it may be. I was, of course, interested to read this book, becoming (quite accidentally) something of a freelance blogger. The thing is, aside from the chapters that deal ...more

I was encouraged as I picked up this book, at how simply it was laid out for the dreamer seeking to launch a business. As a newer business owner, I really appreciated that. I did not do all the steps as of yet, but as I read, I realized how encouraged I was to be on the right path!

Each chapter has the estimated time it would take you to read it, as well as an assignment to complete the task explained in the chapter. It is concise and would be excellent for young high school students wishing to

The author writes you in the right direction to gather your thoughts and follow your dreams. I really enjoyed taking time to learn new tips as well as read the encouragement presented.

Good material but nothing I haven’t heard before. It felt a little braggy at times.

It’s also possible that I’m rating this a little lower than I might otherwise because I’ve been on a podcast kick and didn’t really want to be reading it, but it was going to expire on Overdrive so I made myself knock it out.

I really like this book. It is not a sit down and read for hours kind of book but a 5 minute a day for 30 days kind of book. It's a great starter book for those looking for guidance in a light way with a big impact!

While I enjoyed Dale's last book quite a bit, this one was a bit more flat for me. He had quite a few good things to say, but parts of his book didn't appeal to me and pulled me out of his narrative.

Seldom do I give up on making it through a book, but reading through the first third of the book made me desperate to not waste more time on a fruitless effort.

This book is a self serving collection of truisms and shallow insights and will not make anyone a better entrepreneur, no matter the author's track record and claims to the opposite effect.

I much prefer Rework to this book. It touches on a similar subject yet disagrees with much of the advice given here, and maintains a much more
