NACCE 2019 video contributor, Principal Michael McGrone, published a book about his life and the hardships he endured and overcame.
"This book is a riveting journey about a young man who grew up in Gary, Indiana. He was able to defy incredible odds to become a school principal, recognized all over the world for his unique approach to education. This book will take you on an emotional journey that will make you angry, laugh, cry and rejoice. Instead of running from the pain of his past, he embraced it and used it to restore hope, rebuild dreams, and save lives. Children from all over the world will understand that no matter what you go through in life, it’s all by divine order to help you reach your destiny. It will help you understand that your life is not a mistake and to trust the process – “God does not call the qualified, he qualifies the called."
Principal McGrone is Rodney Walker's mentor and he will be sharing about the impactful work he has done through various mentoring programs with underserved youth. To learn more about his work, please visit www.principalmcgrone.com.

With over 20 leading thoughts leaders contributing, the book's content is fresh, easy to read, and applicable to any student interested in entrepreneurship. Divided into three separate yet related parts, it is designed to be a resource, a tool, a reference guide, and a source of wisdom for all those brave student souls willing to put their ideas into action in entrepreneurship classrooms around the world.
Liguori also recently co-edited the following:
The third volume of the Annals of Entrepreneurship Education and Pedagogy critically examines past practices, current thinking, and future insights into the ever-expanding world of Entrepreneurship education. Prepared under the auspices of the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE), this compendium covers a broad range of scholarly, practical, and thoughtful perspectives on a compelling range of entrepreneurship education issues.
NACCE faculty: This may be a great resource for you!
NACCE member, Clinton E. Day, MBA, AACSB Entrepreneurship Instructor, wrote this six-page, laminated chart which summarizes all 15 methods of evidenced-based, lean startup planning.
"The evidenced-based, idea validation way of planning is the most important change to entrepreneurship in fifty years. It comes out of Silicon Valley where their new internet platform required a different way to do startup than a traditional business plan. This guide, which is the first and only summary of all methods/ strategies, double the chances for startup success. Using Steve Blank's customer development process and a canvas to build a business model, the actual buyers of the product or service (end-users) design the components. Companies like Uber, AirBnB, and Zappos succeeded because of positive feedback from early adopters."
Additional entrepreneurship books and resources will be added in the future. If you have an item to suggest, please email us at email@example.com.
