Quotes for the Book:

"Driving innovation and sharing this depth of insight is quite impressive for a 13-year-old entrepreneur and author.  Both youth and adults who want to launch a new venture will benefit from Taarini’s systematic approach of cultivating and then measuring entrepreneurship.  At the University of California San Diego, where innovation is in our DNA, we are always excited to see change-makers like Taarini push the frontiers of knowledge and share information to help others.”

Pradeep Khosla, Chancellor of the University of California, San Diego

"In a world filled with books about "how to" everything, Taarini has captured a magnetic and compelling way to communicate the entrepreneur's spirit to a cohort we old folks call Gen Z.  She embraces both born and taught, and hence answers the age old question about whether innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership are innate or learned. She clearly conveys in The Young Aspiring Entrepreneur, to an age group who is still forming its way to think and act, how to invent and lead future innovation."

Ray Lane, Former President & COO of Oracle Corporation, Former Chair of Hewlett Packard and Carnegie Mellon University, Managing Partner of Greatpoint Ventures

It’s inspiring to see such a young talent like Taarini capture the essence of what it means to be an entrepreneur. Innovation fuels all we do at Intel. The world needs more entrepreneurs to tackle our toughest challenges. This book gives me hope as it engages the next generation on the value of ownership and resilience,”

Barbara Whye, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer and Vice President of Human Resources, Intel Corporation

This book should be required reading for every middle and high school student. An entrepreneurial mindset is the key to our future and Taarini’s book is both deep and practical in how to cultivate an entrepreneurial view of the world. From covering the social and psychological barriers and how to overcome them to practical tips on pitching and fundraising, this book has it all. Coming peer to peer, from a young aspiring entrepreneur to other young people, there is no better message and no better messenger to convey these important ideas!”

Chuck Eesley, Associate Professor and W.M. Keck Foundation Faculty Scholar, Department of Management Science and Engineering, Stanford University

It is amazingly precocious of  Taarini to write this insightful book on entrepreneurship - it’s struggles and it’s rewards. Very impressed. This book should be a required reading for all aspiring young entrepreneurs. Hats off to Taarini. I will not hesitate to  recommend this book to the TiE chapters globally to complement their efforts in mentoring young entrepreneurs globally.”

Venk Shukla, ex-Chairman of The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) Global and General Partner of Monta Vista Ventures

Love this book! After twenty-five years of running my own business and helping other entrepreneurs run theirs, I was amazed at the accuracy of Taarini’s perception of the early struggles. At only 13, she identifies the roadblocks of social rejection, questioning your intelligence, energy drainers, and feeling you don’t fit in. Her suggestions on promotion, pitching to investors, and asking big while remaining humble will enlighten even the most seasoned entrepreneur. Buy this book for young entrepreneurs, those who lead them, and yourself.”

Linda Byars Swindling, JD, CSP, Author of Ask Outrageously: The Secret to Getting What You Really Want and Stop Complainers and Energy Drainers: How to Negotiate Work Drama to Get More Done
