Brendan Cox's New Book: "Strictly Business: How to Crush it as a Young Entrepreneur"

Who could have thought that a candy selling 7th grader could be a serial entrepreneur at 19 and gain priceless business transforming lessons quickly? 

While the stereotypical notion is that you take advice from those way older than you, Brendan Cox in his new book titled: “Strictly Business: How to Crush it as a Young Entrepreneur” proves this wrong. His arguments surface along passion and the audacity to take the first step, irrespective of the consequences. The first part of the book talks about the characteristics one requires to prosper as a successful entrepreneur. This includes ambition, passion and commitment towards your aim and acceptance of your own boundaries as a business owner. 

The second part of the book, Strictly Business deals with the hardships of being involved in the business world at a young age. It motivates one to push through and take actionable steps.

This section also gives an answer to some of the present day problems faced by young entrepreneurs. Stress, anxiety, handling competition and being realistic are some of the major, highly important issues being discussed at length. 

Cox had his first share of failure in 8th grade when he invested money in an Instagram account and went on trying to monetize it. The account was later removed by Instagram and this was the first step towards learning from failure. Brendon then discusses that this stage of failure is usually what most people are scared of. This fear often pushes them from trying which, thus getting over it is important in order to be able to act, learn and grow. 

Part 3 talks about staying relevant to the current developments in the business world. While adaptation can be tough sometimes, it definitely becomes necessary for survival. Cox, himself went through the process of learning graphic designing for managing his social media business profiles. He discusses at length how opportunities can be effectively targeted for maximum output. 

The entire book, Strictly Business: how to Crush it as a Young Entrepreneur also motivates one to action. Throughout, the stress on passion is not only enticing but also encouraging to a point where it compels the reader to go for the unachievable.
