The author of Do Cool Sh*t: Quit Your Day Job, Start your Own Business, and Live Happily Ever After, Miki Agrawal, is a pretty cool, intelligent woman who did just that – she lives her best life because she can and she wants to.
This book is aimed at a specific audience – young entrepreneurs or aspiring entrepreneurs – and it offers a fresh take on being an entrepreneur in a hard-knock world. As valuable as lessons from established CEOs are, they can feel a little stale and boring. Miki’s book is nothing like that. Her story-like way of writing is easy to read and insightful.
Miki dropped out of the conventional business world in her twenties and reinvented herself as an edgy entrepreneur. And succeeded. She opened a pizza restaurant, WILD, in Manhattan, which has been acclaimed by top restaurant critics. What made her restaurant a success you may ask? Her unique twist: a farm-to-table gluten-free pizza place for lactose intolerant and vegan consumers.
Miki’s spirit and passion flow in the pages of Do Cool Sh*t and while the words can seem like a lengthy text message, it’s one hundred percent deliberate with zero sugar coating. Her optimistic style of writing and forthright sharing of her own failures is a breath of fresh air. She also gives step-by-step methodologies for managing interpersonal aspects of business and other relationships.
Miki wrote the book because she wishes that someone had told her that this kind of life was possible earlier on. We suggest you put down your standard “10 steps to success” book and open this one instead for an easy read that will get you jumping off the couch, out your warm PJs and planning your next venture.
