Silicon Valley is like a fake pair of boobs.— Mike Sharman
There are a lot dicks in business, says Retroviral cofounder Mike Sharman.
“I never want to be the biggest. I want to be the best dick at everything I achieve,” says Sharman.
Description on Amazon:
Mike Sharman invites you to share in the hustle.
From the enthusiastic, entrepreneurial beginnings of a bootstrapped start-up founder - a relatively inexperienced 26 year old - to a seasoned, professional storyteller who has built a boutique social media advertising agency that has made more brands go viral, globally, than any other studio in Africa.
Mike seamlessly and hypnotically entwines business insights and universal premises of first hires, cash flow challenges, brand building, networking and pitches with his humorous storytelling approach to deliver a page-turner complete with armed robberies, fancy-dress competitions and partnering with some of the planet’s most coveted brands.
“The Best Dick” is the catalyst you’ve been waiting for your entire life, to encourage your emancipation from the payroll hamster wheel, in order to just start your own business.
And, for the existing entrepreneur, to find solace in the fact that founding your own company is the best damn decision you ever made.
Life is short.
