The 10% Entrepreneur

Author Speaker Series

Becoming a full-time entrepreneur can look glamorous from the outside. Who doesn’t want to chase their dreams, be their own boss, and do what they love?  But the truth is that entrepreneurship is often a slog, with no regular hours, no job security, and very little pay.

What if there was a way to have the stability of a day job with the excitement of a startup? All of the benefits of entrepreneurship with none of the pitfalls? In The 10% Entrepreneur, Patrick McGinnis shows you how, by investing just 10% of your time and resources, you can become an entrepreneur without losing a steady paycheck.

McGinnis details a step-by-step plan that takes you from identifying your first entrepreneurial project to figuring out the smartest way to commit resources to it. He shows you how to select and engage in projects that will provide you with upside outside the office while making your better at your day job.

Using vivid anecdotes of real-life 10% entrepreneurs, McGinnis shows the importance of entrepreneurial projects in today’s economy.

“Clear, concise and forward-thinking, The 10% Entrepreneur dives deeper into the future of today’s business world,” observes Tony Hsieh, CEO of, Inc.

“In a shifting corporate landscape, entrepreneurship no longer has to mean all-or-nothing endeavors. Patrick McGinnis uses his own expertise as a "part-time entrepreneur" to illustrate a proven solution for you to become one, too,” writes Keith Ferrazzi, author of the Who's Got Your Back and Never Eat Alone.
