9780062261533: Do Cool Sh*t: Quit Your Day Job, Start Your Own Business, and Live Happily Ever After

In Do Cool Sh*t, serial social entrepreneur, angel investor, and all-around cool sh*tdoer Miki Agrawal shows how to start a successful company—from brainstorming to raising money to getting press without any connections—all while having a meaningful life! 

With zero experience and no capital, Miki Agrawal opened WILD, a farm-to-table pizzeria in New York City and Las Vegas, partnered up in a children's multimedia company called Super Sprowtz, and launched a patented high-tech underwear business called THINX.   

Miki has seen significant growth in her businesses. She pulls back the curtain of how you can live out loud, honor your hunches, and leave nothing on the table.

Whether you’re a student with big aspirations or an experienced professional looking for new opportunities, Do Cool Sh*t will open your eyes, make you laugh, and give you the confidence to quit your day job, start your own business, and live happily ever after.

Do Cool Sh*t features a foreword by Tony Hsieh, the founder of Zappos.

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!"
