Hiscox Authors Series for Entrepreneurs

April 17, 2012

Today we launched the Hiscox Authors Series for Entrepreneurs, an additional resource for entrepreneurs and small business owners looking to grow their businesses. The Hiscox Authors Series for Entrepreneurs offers creative content, tips and advice from popular authors who are themselves entrepreneurs. Our first featured experts are Susan Urquhart-Brown, author of The Accidental Entrepreneur: The 50 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me About Starting a Business, and Stephanie Chandler, author of Leap! 101 Ways to Grow Your Business.

Subscribe to our small business blog to access all the content we’ll be rolling out over the next two months. You’ll get practical advice from our expert authors through blog posts, a live Twitter chat and a Webinar during April and May. There will also be several opportunities to win free copies of the authors books. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for details and a chance to win!

But don’t take our word for it, hear from the experts themselves in our introductory video.

    We’re excited about the Authors Seires for Entrepreneurs! Thanks for being a part of it Susan.

  • I was puzzled a bit by Susan’s remark that there are lots of people who think about starting a business but only few do so. What is the disconnect? Why want something you won’t work for?

    The times have changed and starting a business is easier than ever. Just look at the amazing opportunities possible through the Web today that were not there even 5 years ago with social media, for example! What’s the main hang-up for so many who want to start and do not do so?

  • So many entrepreneurs say the same thing. They just couldn’t stand their jobs. I have always felt the same way. But I think more people actually do start their business. It just that most fail.
