Beacon Audiobooks Releases "Build The Fort" By Chris Heivly
Now available for download worldwide "Build the Fort: Why 5 Simple Lessons You Learned as a 10-Year-Old Can Set You up for Startup Success" written by author Chris Heivly and narrated by Morley Shulman.
In "Build The Fort", Heivly breaks down his personal fort-building experiences and uses them as an analogy to his journey as co-founder of MapQuest as well as The Startup Factory (a seed-stage investor & mentorship program). "Build the Fort" outlines five basic elements that are common to both fort-building and startups:
• Socializing your idea without fear or inhibition,
• Identifying and marshaling the people you trust,
• Gathering the minimal resources closest to you,
• Acting on the smallest and simplest of the idea, and
• Build the fort.
Whether you are 16 or 60, "Build the Fort" will provide the listener a better understanding of the earliest micro-steps of starting your own business by overlaying Chris' 30 years of experiences in startups, investments, big-company intrapreneurship, and community development.
Chris Heivly is the co-founder of MapQuest (sold to AOL for $1.2B). One of two Managing Directors of The Startup Factory in Durham, NC and national writer (Inc.com) and speaker.
