Career Management Series
What if there was a way to have the stability of a day job with the excitement of a startup? All of the benefits of entrepreneurship with none of the pitfalls?Patrick will show you how, by investing just 10% of your time and resources, you can become an entrepreneur without losing a steady paycheck.
Patrick J. McGinnis is an international venture capitalist and the author of Fear of Missing Out and The 10% Entrepreneur. Patrick coined the term FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), as well as the related term FOBO (Fear of a Better Option) in an article in the student newspaper of Harvard Business School. Since that time, FOMO has since been added to the dictionary and FOBO has become an increasingly popular framework to describe choice paralysis.
As a 10% Entrepreneur, Patrick has built a diverse portfolio of investments outside of his day job. This portfolio encompasses fast growing new ventures in the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Asia, including ipsy, the world?s largest online beauty community and the upcoming British stage production of The Last King of Scotland.
