Entrepreneurship can be an ideal career option for enterprising individuals with Asperger Syndrome (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and this detailed guide explains how to tell if being self-employed is right for you and how to go about starting and growing your own business.
Written by a successful entrepreneur and business consultant with Asperger Syndrome, this book provides all the guidance you need on the practicalities of starting up a company. The unique strengths that Asperger leaders can bring to a new business venture are highlighted and solutions are offered for elements of entrepreneurship that can create stumbling blocks such as developing working relationships within your company, marketing yourself and your business, managing finances, networking and maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
Full of pragmatic advice, case studies from established business owners with Asperger Syndrome and practical tools for professional development, this is an essential startup handbook for anyone on the spectrum considering making the leap to becoming an entrepreneur.
Not only is a book on Asperger entrepreneurship long-overdue, but Rosalind may have shut down the need for future books on the subject. She has written a thoroughly complete, easy-to-read guide that will satisfy not just the budding entrepreneur who has some idea of what's required, but also the dreamer who has no clue where to start... An Asperger's Guide to Entrepreneurship had me exclaiming 'Finally!' too many times as I read it. It promises real hope, and positive change in the lives of so many of us. – from the foreword by Michael John Carley, founder of GRASP and author of Asperger’s From the Inside-Out
