Product Description

Review

“Offering a combination of vivid stories with action-able advice, Agrawal helps readers define and achieve their personalized versions of success....Simple yet powerful, Agrawal’s process liberates readers from conventional thinking and restrictions, freeing them to pursue their passions and make a living at the same time.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Miki Agrawal is a real piece of work. It turns out that so are you. Once you read her high-energy book, you might be able to embrace the gifts you already have and go take advantage of them.” (Seth Godin, author of The Icarus Deception)

“This book is your official permission slip to quit yappin’ and make it happen. Miki’s book is smart, straightforward and a ton of fun—a must read for any aspiring entrepreneur.” (Marie Forleo, marieforleo.com)

“Miki is an unstoppable force in successful pursuit of a rich and fulfilled life, and a source of practical wisdom for how you can be the same. The more people that follow her advice, the better the world will be.” (Ben Rattray, founder of Change.org)

“If MacGyver were a woman she would look a lot like Miki Agrawal-she might even BE Miki. But this book makes it clear just how to tap into your inner MacGyver and transform your life!” (Lee Zlotoff, creator of MacGyver)

From the Back Cover

An inspiring, irreverent manifesto for those seeking to blaze their own path to entrepreneurship and find fulfillment and happiness through bold action and big ideas

Have you ever wondered if it's possible to make a career out of something you love? Or how to march through life with a purpose and get the most out of every second? Miki Agrawal, entrepreneur, angel investor, and cool-sh*t-doer, has figured it out. Here Miki shares her own adventures in entrepreneurship and life, from learning to step out of her comfort zone in a foreign country to achieving her dream of playing soccer for the New York Magic to partnering with Tony Hsieh of Zappos.com to launch her dream business.

In Do Cool Sh*t, Miki shows you how to start your own business, fund it on a shoestring budget, convene the perfect group to brainstorm your business plan, test your product, get great (free) press coverage, and more—all while living a life you're proud of.

Miki pulls back the curtain to reveal how you can live out loud, honor your hunches, and leave nothing on the table. She reminds you that it's cool to care and be excited about ideas and to be proactive; it's cool to mess up; it's cool to work your ass off on something that is meaningful to you; and it's cool to keep trying when the odds are stacked against you. Whether you're about to graduate from college and are wondering what the heck you want to do with your life, or you are in a dead-end job, dreaming about starting your own business, Do Cool Sh*t will make you open your eyes, laugh out loud, and shout, "I can do that!"

Format: Paperback
This book was given to me by a friend who knew I was contemplating a career shift. I found that it was a great starting point to help me shift my mindset, get me thinking about the bigger picture of my life, and stimulate ideas of the business I want to build. I would suggest this book to anyone who is in a similar circumstance (job dissatisfaction and contemplating a career over-haul) and needs a bit of motivation to take the plunge.

While a little self-promotional, Miki does offer some good points on taking first steps, and challenges readers to ask questions that will lead them in the right direction of developing their brand and business. She describes her journey to opening her restaurant, with nothing but an idea and a few connections that she strongly takes advantage of. Her success is a completely unique situation, and I don't know if repeating the steps that she suggests would really work for any other market or situation than her own...

I read the book cover to cover, however I could have done without the last 100 pages or so. Miki attempts to provide readers with health, fitness, and love advice. She holds no credibility in these areas, aside from what has "worked for her" - which is completely specific to her unique circumstances and would not serve much help to general population. It feels like reading "filler" material, which actually made the first half of the book feel slightly less impact-ful.

This book should probably be called "be an organized extrovert with goals", because that's really all she's describing. This book is an introvert's nightmare. There's absolutely nothing to back up anything in this book besides a "this is what I did and I turned out okay" attitude. This book could also have been called "how to make irresponsible decisions and take advantage of your friends". Up and quit an internship exchange program when you're already there because you think you deserve better? Get the company's driver to drive you to soccer tryouts and wait three hours twice a week for two months? I'm guessing she's quite charming and persuasive in person and I just can't stand people who think they deserve whatever they can squeeze out of someone else's kindness. She even says if you want time off work to pursue your passion and possible follow on by quitting your job, find the kindest person in the company with the most pull. That's just straight up taking advantage of people.

While The book is an enjoyable easy read it's just not practical. This author simply had opportunities that would just not be available to the average person. Travel the world sure... With what money? When she needed a job she called her sister. She also has to have lived in major centres and has no responsibilities past taking care of herself. Being young, having moneyand the ability to be ultra flexible can buy their own opportunities and if you don't have those things...it's pretty hard to implement anything suggested in this book
