    When Tamara Jacobi approached Chrysalis Editorial for writing assistance, I knew she was determined and passionate about writing the story about how she became a “wild entrepreneur.” In her memoir/how-to, Wildpreneur, she discusses the ups and downs of her entrepreneurial efforts and provides a guide for how to pursue a life outside the bounds. That is, leaving soul-crushing jobs behind and bringing your dreams to fruition. Wildpreneurs offers practical wisdom on how to transform your passions When Tamara Jacobi approached Chrysalis Editorial for writing assistance, I knew she was determined and passionate about writing the story about how she became a “wild entrepreneur.” In her memoir/how-to, Wildpreneur, she discusses the ups and downs of her entrepreneurial efforts and provides a guide for how to pursue a life outside the bounds. That is, leaving soul-crushing jobs behind and bringing your dreams to fruition. Wildpreneurs offers practical wisdom on how to transform your passions into business, and how to maintain inspiration and work-life balance. Check out Tamara’s webpage or amazon profile to learn more about her her book, which is available for preorder in the hardcover, audio, and (ebook) Kindle versions. (Release date: 2/11/20 HarperCollins Leadership) #wildpreneursFeatured in the opening pages of Wildpreneurs is a short blurb I wrote: A fascinating blend of memoir and practical advice for the entrepreneur seeking outside-the-box information on how to start your dream business. Tamara’s personal stories, at times, are fabulous adventures, and at other funny, honest, and self-reflective, offering insight into her own entrepreneurial mistakes, with the hope that others can avoid them. A must read for the next Wildpreneur.” —Herta Feely

    Wildpreneurs was magic!! The stories, insights and question prompts reminded my inner compass to continue following my dreams, with a plan! I especially loved the short interviews with other self employed folks. Most of all, I could finally relate to an author who has a robust outdoor background, like I do, who combines wellness, self-employment & soul work.

    A unique, provocative journey into ones soul. Tamara's ride through life is one that most people only dream about, but don't have the courage or faith in themselves to pursue. This read is a must for those of you who realize that life is precious and that we are all able to create our own realities.

    Tamara does an awesome job in this half memoir, half how-to guide of weaving her personal experiences with solid business advice for those of us looking to pursue dreams that could never come to fruition inside the walls of a cubicle. It was light-hearted while still being honest and helpful. After reading, I’m inspired to adventure more and to reach for my dreams!

    Love this book and the story it told. It was a bit different than what I expected in the business aspect but it tied the two together perfectly. This book is for people who are doing things outside the box. Great read!

    I found this book to be more on the inspirational rather than practical side, based on the author and her family’s experiences. There are many questions posed for the aspiring wildpreneur to consider, and it can certainly be said that this book was not authored by someone wearing rose-tinted glasses. It is evident that much was sacrificed and some really challenging circumstances were overcome to achieve the dream. Being prepared to adapt and change was a key contributor to the eventual outcome.

Success. Other take outs were that this adventure was built on a dream, not the pursuit of money and that building the right team around you is important (not being a jack-of-all trades), as is taking care yourself. I found the contributions of the many other wildpreneurs detracted rather than added to the story. These may be considered reassuring and insightful by other readers. With thanks to #NetGalley, HarperCollins Leadership and the author for my free advanced reader copy to review in exchange for an honest opinion
