This book is dedicated to my wife, Gizelle, my partner in life as well as to many of my family members (Grandparents, Uncles, Aunts, Cousins) who I have never met because they were murdered by the German Nazis and their collaborators during WW II. The goal of this book is to be a beacon of light for those who contemplate starting their own business in a technology field or any other field. The method I will be using is, to uncover many pitfalls that are very well “camouflaged” some by nature but mostly by men. I myself have fallen into many of these pitfalls and the memory is still fresh in my mind. If I could do it all over, I would look for a book that could guide me through many of these uncertainties.
Throughout this book I intend to emphasize a unique type of Entrepreneurial Method, I call it: “DMwl Entrepreneurship™” (DMwl stands for Do More with less – The “D” and the “M” are intentionally capitalized while the “w” and the “l” are intentionally lower case). “Do more with less”, has been my motto in the past 30+ years and I am hopeful it will continue in the future. Over the past 30 years I have seen successful Entrepreneurs who have done amassing things; revolutionized the way we work, the way we live and the way we think, all this with minimal resources. These are the true DMwl Entrepreneurs. It is my hope and dream that the next generation of Entrepreneurs will also be “DMwl” inspired.
Many people helped with the preparation, review and presentation of this book. I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. Most of my tanks however, I owe to hundreds of my students who have taken my Entrepreneurship classes over the past ten years. “I have learned a lot from you. Your questions and comments have inspired me and prompted me to write this book.
