One book that inspired this podcast is called The 10% Entrepreneur: Live Your Startup Dream Without Quitting Your Day Job by Patrick J. McGinnis. When I read it, I took a ton of notes and after reviewing those notes recently, I thought it was time to talk through them with you, so you could get an idea of what was going through my mind as I read the book. 

In the book, McGinnis talks through a process to help readers think through whether one wants to be an entrepreneur or a 10% entrepreneur, and if it’s the latter, how to design one’s career to be a 10% entrepreneur. 

I’d say The 10% Entrepreneur is required reading for rebel intrapreneurs.
