In her own words
In the words of a recent reviewer
Read the full review (From the Journal of Entrepreneurship Vol. 31 No. 2 July 2022)
The past few decades have witnessed several books on different aspects of entrepreneurship, creating a new genre of entrepreneurship literature. However, these books often do not seem appealing despite having catchy titles, as most of them are not based on thorough research. At the same time, the research-based books use such intense academic language that they stand apart from the common readers. In this context, Rebecca White’s book See, Do, Repeat: The Practice of Entrepreneurship comes across as a fresh change as it is a winner in all grades, such as an alluring title, a thorough research base, an easy-to-read language, and above all a competently crafted practical approach.
… it is an essential handbook and a practical road guide for those who desire to achieve entrepreneurial success.
About the book
Entrepreneurship is a way of life. Much like yoga or meditation, it is not about mastery, but about the practice, that brings transformation and change. A business founder builds and creates, what might become a very successful business, but to be sure, they never stop learning along the way. They continue to practice entrepreneurship, and they grow.
While entrepreneurship is never easy or simple, having a focused way to develop your entrepreneurial practice, can be extremely valuable. In fact, having a curated approach, which can be integrated into everyday life and work, may be the only way someone who is working 24/7 on an entrepreneurial venture, can take the time to improve their practice.
This book is about developing the practice of entrepreneurship. The ability to recognize an entrepreneurial opportunity, the willingness to act on it, and the resilience and perseverance to execute past failure.
