Secret to Startup Failure: Fail Fast. Fail Cheap. Fail Happy. by Sonia Lin

I don’t often read nonfiction and review it, but I had one to review today.



For those who are crazy enough to keep failing…

Award winning entrepreneur and author of popular webcomic series EntrepreNo’s: Secret to Startup Failure Sonia Lin unveils a startup life full of failures, based off her iconic humor in the webcomics that are weaved into practical themes in a startup life, coupled with words of advice to fellow entrepreneurs. The “fail fast, fail cheap, fail happy” mantra of this book commits to promoting work-life balance and the ability to look beyond and laugh at the startup life vicissitudes in order to achieve long-term entrepreneurial success.

Get ready for Secret to Startup Failure to:
● Get over a less-than-successful launch day

● Pick a co-founder who provides politics-free companionship
● Interpret productivity from the garbage can
● Have an investor call on St. Patrick’s Day
● … and more

Startup life is long, so fail where you should, and laugh when you can.



Review: As something of a business owner myself, I just jumped in to start my business for myself. I’ve never read books on the subject because I’m not usually interested in nonfiction books. This is much different than the average book on starting one’s own business. it’s informative, but not dull. I especially love the comic images throughout and the realistic, not dull or repetitive way in which the author speaks. The books reads like a real person talking to you. The use of humor throughout makes this a drastic improvement over a normal business startup guidebook. The opening that highlights the fact that this isn’t a step by step guide to building your own business is a very creative idea and helps set the tone. The author is very talented and engaging, never condescending and made a topic that one might consider boring seem very interesting.
