A TAD INTRO
This book is regarded as one of the must read for entrepreneurs. I decided to test this claim,and…
… If you are an aspiring entrepreneur ,I have a tiny tip for you at the end.
Lets start now.
WHAT KIND OF BOOK IS THIS?
Lean Startup is a book on how to build startups that provide value to customers through testing and innovation.
Here author shares the mistakes and lessons he had learned after opening his startup , IMVU,during his teens. He is now 41 years old.
During that journey he discovered the- build- measure – learn loop, which he thinks is vital for every young startup.
He has also explained about the MVP(minimum viable product) which he thinks that every entrepreneur must strive to make in the initial days .
Everything that doesn’t lead to validated learning is waste.Eric Ries, author of Lean Startup
Author believes that any feature that a customer doesn’t need at the early days of a startup is waste of time and energy of the entrepreneur.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN FROM THIS BOOK?
The book is divided into 3 parts
- Part one: Vision, chapters are
- Part two: Steer
- Part three: Accelerate
As you can get an insight from the name of the chapters, the book has covered almost everything for a startup from ground-zero to moving ahead.
Its a must read for you if you really want to open a startup of yours, no matter you are 20,40 or 60 years old,I think it will also help you if you are a newbie to business and startups, because
the stories that the author narrates will be relatable to you.
That feeling of motivation and positivity that your startup will touch the skies and make you a millionaire…which most entrepreneurs dream , is nicely explained by the author at the starting and says that you have better things to do other than daydreaming.
IF YOU HAVE NO TIME TO READ/LISTEN, WHAT TO DO?

You can later red the book, but now since you have less time this video will be enough.
A TINY TIP FOR ASPIRING ENTREPRENEURS
I have listened-3/4th -of the book,for this reason I am fit to tell you that this book is best for beginners. What do I mean by beginners? /
By beginners I mean , people who have just started a small business or are thinking of starting one.
Don’t read the part 3 since you will have to first apply what the author has described in the first 2 parts.Then you can listen or read this book from part 3.
If you want to start a business this is the book that you must read or listen.
GOD BLESS YOU
