The all-encompassing approach to becoming a Rugged begins with the Four Foundational Elements of a Rugged Entrepreneur – a fervent work ethic, a humble and healthy pride, ‘fortitude mentis’ (mental toughness), and faith.

The Rugged Entrepreneur is far more than a usual “dry” business book. If you’re thinking of starting a business, already have a business, or want to bring your business to the next level, I can’t recommend The Rugged Entrepreneur highly enough.

One of the more interesting aspects of The Rugged Entrepreneur is the importance of company culture. Scott Andrew discusses how heroic ‘stories’ can be nurtured and then memorialized so they serve as inspiration and motivation to all.
