Reviews

"Howard gives you an invaluable framework for understanding where you are with your startup and how to progress to success. "---- Pete Flint, Co-Founder of Trulia (06/28/2016) "Howard Love is a deeply experienced entrepreneur and early stage investor. This book is a culmination of many years of seeing successes and failures, what works and what doesn't. I highly recommend this book to entrepreneurs who want to make their own unique mistakes, rather than repeating the mistakes of others."---- Bill Ericson, General Partner Mohr Davidow (06/28/2016) "The J Curve is a must-read for any entrepreneur, whether first-time or seasoned! Howard's genius is that he understands and empathizes with the entrepreneurial experience--and how humbling it can be--while also giving insight into and support as to why the challenges are of crucial benefit to the process of building a truly successful company. Entrepreneurs can use Howard's practical insights to better understand the realistic stages to expect in starting a company in a way that is demystifying and empowering, and quite honestly, provides an appreciated element of sanity to the often crazed entrepreneurial experience. Highly recommend!"---- Sara Sutton-Fell, CEO, FlexJobs (06/28/2016) "I've been lucky to collaborate with Howard as an investor, advisor and co-founder - he's made me a better entrepreneur, and by reading this book, he'll make you one too."---- Sam Shank, CEO, Hotel Tonight (06/28/2016) Howard gives you an invaluable framework for understanding where you are with your startup and how to progress to success. ---- Pete Flint, Co-Founder of Trulia (06/28/2016)" "As I begin another "pivot" in my own business, I find myself wishing that Howard had written this book years ago...when I began my own entrepreneurial journey. It would have been a tremendous roadmap and guide for the many twists and turns I faced. The J Curve is a must-read for any aspiring entrepreneur, yet I am confident that start-up vets like myself will also find many new insights as well. Howard presents a fresh and spot-on approach to understanding the growth stages, and do's / don't's for each stage, of the entrepreneurial process, all based on his own vast experience starting and backing multiple companies."---- Mark Divine, founder of SEALFIT, The Coronado Brewing Company, NavySEALS.com, and NYT Best Selling author of The Way of the SEAL and Unbeatable Mind (06/28/2016) "I ve been lucky to collaborate with Howard as an investor, advisor and co-founder - he's made me a better entrepreneur, and by reading this book, he'll make you one too. ---- Sam Shank, CEO, Hotel Tonight (06/28/2016)" Howard gives you an invaluable framework for understanding where you are with your startup and how to progress to success. ---- Pete Flint, Co-Founder of Trulia (06/28/2016)" "As I begin another "pivot" in my own business, I find myself wishing that Howard had written this book years ago...when I began my own entrepreneurial journey.
