“Do you want to live your startup dream?” Patrick McGinnis, author of the 10% Entrepreneur asks the question to readers of his book. In 2017 and beyond, entrepreneurs are overrated. In fact, living the “startup dream,” is no longer realistic. The dot com era is over. Startups are dead. Patrick believes that you should hedge their bets and only invest 10% of your time with startup ideas. The startup entrepreneur version of the “American Dream,” is a myth. Launching a side project, side hustle or side business is the new startup.
