How Sgerber started their custom wordpress themes journey

Company name

Never Get a "Real" Job (NeverGetaRealJob.com)

Overview

About me, my book and my movement:

A young serial entrepreneur, media personality, author and columnist -- Scott Gerber (known as the Simon Cowell of young entrepreneurship) is not the product of a wealthy family or storied entrepreneurial heritage. Nor is he the outcome of a traditional business school education or a corporate executive turned entrepreneur. Rather, he is a hard-working, self-taught 26-year-old hustler, rainmaker and bootstrapper who has survived and thrived despite never having held the proverbial "real" job. In Never Get a "Real" Job, Gerber challenges the social conventions behind the "real job" and empowers readers to take control over their lives, fears and careers. Drawing upon case studies, experiences and observations, the author dissects failures, shares hard-learned lessons and presents practical, affordable and systematic action steps to building, managing and marketing a successful business. This proven methodology teaches readers and viewers how to quit the 9to5s, become their own bosses and achieve financial independence. Watch the video on http://AskGerber.com for more info.
