Jan Gusich, CEO of Hudson-based AKHIA, will discuss the “Five Myths about Entrepreneurs” as part of the library's 2016 Fall Entrepreneurship Series. Glorified by the media, entrepreneurs are often thought to be yacht-riding, carefree, risk-taking mavericks. While that is certainly true in some instances, most are hard-working, conservative, paranoid planners. Jan discusses five myths about entrepreneurs in a light-hearted look at what it takes to grow a successful business in today’s ultra-competitive age.
Join the discussion! As part of the City of Hudson’s celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week (November 14-20, 2016) the library will kick off the event with a “Community Read” of the New York Times bestselling book, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth. A must-read for anyone striving to succeed, Grit is full of valuable insights into achieving your goals. The library will host a book discussion at Peachtree Southern Kitchen, 200 N. Main Street in Hudson. Light appetizers will be provided and additional food and drink are available for purchase. Multiple copies of the book are available to borrow at the Hudson Library & Historical Society or purchase at The Learned Owl Book Shop. No registration required.
