Book Description

A s a recent college graduate, there is no better time to take risks—especially when it comes to making career choices. Too often, young employees find themselves in unfulfilling jobs with little chance of advancement. But with the right advice, they can strike out on their own and chase their dreams. Author Robert Tuchman knows what it takes to break free of a frustrating job and build a career on your own terms.  In Young Guns, he shows readers how to start out on a business venture, how to gain a client base, how to keep those clients, and what they need to sacrifice along the way in order to succeed. Young entrepreneurs will learn how to: 

formulate their great idea

• identify their strengths

• develop a realistic business plan

• get out and meet the right people

• capitalize a venture

• make a business stand out in a crowded marketplace

• find and get along with a business partner

Filled with real-life examples of entrepreneurs under 35 who have made it to the top, this is the book that will show readers how to go for the gold and lead a passionate, daring, and successful life.

From the Inside Flap

When Robert Tuchman graduated from college, he had a burning desire to follow his passion and make a name for himself. He was quickly forced to abandon his dream of being a sports writer, eventually accepting a position as a stockbroker trainee. Like many graduates, he soon realized that he was completely unfulfilled in his new job. “There has to be something better than this,” he decided.

 

In Young Guns, Tuchman shows how you can pursue your own dreams of making it big and breaking free from the pack.  In addition to his own, he tells the incredible stories of other young guns who fulfilled their dreams, including three PayPal employees named Steven Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim, who started a little website called YouTube, where users could upload, view, and share video clips. Using their unparalleled marketing savvy, design skills, and a hunger to create something of their own, they turned the site into a phenomenon. Eventually, these three young guns sold their site to Google Inc., for $1.65 billion.

 

Entrepreneur Tuchman shows you that you can break out on your own and achieve your dreams. He explains how to start out on a business venture, and what you need to sacrifice along the way in order to succeed. As a young gun himself, Tuchman is an expert on taking risks and starting your own business. Tired of working at a job with little prospect of advancement, he formed his own company—Tuchman Sports Enterprises—out of a corner of his apartment with one phone and a fax machine. Within two years, his company was named to the annual Inc. 500 list of America’s fastest-growing privately held companies.

 

With his hard-won advice, you will discover how to:

·        Connect your work to what you love.

·        Start working your plan, whether you’re ready or not.

·        Find the right partner, and avoid the wrong one.

·        Set priorities for that all-important first year.

·        Court clients and keep them coming back.

·        Build a great team.

·        Overcome failure and learn from it.

·        Maintain good relationships with your vendors.

 

There is no better time to take a chance than when you’re young, bold, and have very little to lose. The young guns in this book prove that taking risks and breaking free from the pack really does pay off.

 

Robert Tuchman is the Founder of TSE Sports & Entertainment, a company he started out of his one-bedroom apart­ment in Manhattan at the age of 25. TSE has gone on to appear on Inc. 500’s list of America’s Fastest Growing Privately Owned Companies. Tuchman now serves as President of Premiere Corporate Events, a division of Premiere Global Sports. He has appeared on “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” the CBS Morning News, CNN, NBC, BET, and has been the subject of features in USA Today, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and Entrepreneur. He lives in New York City.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great practical and academic resource August 21, 2010
By ssingh
Format:Hardcover
I've worked with dozens of entrepreneurs of all ages and levels of expertise. Young entrepreneurs have special opportunities and challenges. Rob's book addresses both of these in a way that is encouraging, reality-based and highly instructional. It is the best resource I've seen for young entrepreneurs written by someone who has been there. As a professor of entrepreneurship and sports business, I've used the book in my class and will continue to do so.

3.0 out of 5 stars Young Guns - Robert Tuchman (Amacom) July 7, 2010
Format:Hardcover
Robert Tuchman believes you should fulfill your professional dreams. He should know. After graduating college, Tuchman, who had always wanted to be a sports writer, became a stockbroker trainee. When that quickly became an unfulfilling life pursuit, Tuchman broke out and reconfigured his plan to put himself back on track. Now, as a successful businessman in the world of sports and corporate events, Tuchman shares his insights as to how a young person (the ones who have `nothing to lose') can make their way creating their own business dream.

`Young Guns' is a well-balanced primer for newbies in the business world who want to learn things like how to identify big ideas, find valuable partners, nurturing important vendor relationships, the all-important first year and how to get started whether you're ready or not. Along the way, Tuchman cites examples of entrepreneurs who utilize the techniques outlined in the book and how those methods have benefitted their companies.

`Young Guns' is neither complex nor hard to follow and in that respect it is perhaps most useful to those who are truly just starting out on their personal business journey - even for those who may already have a job, but are yet to begin the journey to their dream career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Motivating November 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Based in the author's experience with pursuing his dream and opening his own company, the book describes the author's feelings and thoughts that took him to this stage and talks about topics which he considers important for the young entrepreneur's success. He preaches that the aspiring entrepreneur must keep asking the question: "why not me?". Very motivating.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Inspiring Story June 15, 2010
Format:Hardcover
Young Guns is a must read for anyone between the ages of 22-30. It teaches you valuable life lessons that aim to help the average person succeed. What I liked most about it, is that the book maintained a realistic mindset. It did not aim to achieve impossible goals. It talked a lot about the basics. While most people think they know how to organize their time, manage their money, they don't. Rob Tuchman teaches these valuable life lessons that can not be learned in a classroom, nor can they be learned out on the streets. The most important lessons come from someone who has gone through the experience of trying to achieve their goals at the highest level. It is no wonder that Tuchman has become so successful on his own.

Overall, a great read and an awe inspiring book for young people that are entering the business world.

This book provides insight into the minds of some highly respected 'movers and shakers'. They share their views of how to run a successful business/organization.
It is very inspiring. Great gift for that college grad, or anyone who wants to learn some secrets for success in life.
