Startup Mixology is first and foremost a book about turning your ideas into action. From the cofounder of media company Tech Cocktail, a veteran entrepreneur and investor who was named one of the most connected people in tech, this book covers the basic ´´ingredients´´ of winning entrepreneurship.

Once you´ve taken that first step, the journey has only begun.Startup Mixology tells it like it is - and it´s not easy! You´ll learn about the harsh reality of starting up: what happens when you offend your customers, get no attention, or run out of money. These are the stories you don´t always hear in the media. In the end, Startup Mixology is an optimistic book. You can do this - and you can have fun doing it, too. Every chapter also shows you how to enjoy the journey along the way - because if you don´t, what´s the point of it all? From cake baking to workations to llama parades, you´ll learn how entrepreneurs around the world stay sane, reduce stress, and celebrate the positive. This may seem fluffy, but it´s actually one of the biggest secrets of successful startups. Inside, you´ll find the stories of companies like MakerBot, WordPress, Zappos, Basecamp, Uber, and more.

Grieving widow or black widow? The day Joan Medford buried her husband was a fateful one - because before the day was out she´d meet the two men who would change her life forever. Forced to take a job waitressing to support herself and her child, Joan finds herself caught between the handsome young schemer whose touch she comes to crave and the wealthy older man whose touch repels her… but who otherwise would make a tempting husband number two. It´s a classic Cain triangle - brutal and sexual and stark - that can only end in death. But for whom, the guilty…or the innocent? The final novel written by James M. Cain and never before published, The Cocktail Waitress is a testament to the enduring power of one of the most acclaimed novelists of the 20th century. The author of unforgettable noir classics such as Double Indemnity, Mildred Pierce, and The Postman Always Rings Twice, Cain´s work remains as impossible to put down today as when first written, and will leave even jaded modern readers breathless. 1.
