Patrick McGinnis is the worldwide best-selling author of ‘The 10% Entrepreneur’; venture capitalist, private equity investor; and avid traveler, writer, and speaker. In this in-depth interview, Patrick argues you can still be entrepreneurial and start something new, yet also maintain the security of keeping your ‘day job’. By investing 10% of your time into side projects, he contends you can generate more income, discover new opportunities, sharpen your skills, and “get the life you’ve always wanted”. He reflects on his own “over achiever affliction” as a student, and how it led him to coin the now-popular phrase ‘FOMO’ (“Fear Of Missing Out”).
