Chicken Soup for the Entrepreneur’s Soul — Stefan Doering Interview for TV Show The New Yorkers

In 2002 I was nearly killed in an assault on the street. After regaining consciousness from a coma, I had lost 95% of my vision, much of my hearing and almost all of my balance. Doctors announced I might never walk again.

When I left the hospital, I decided to set a seemingly impossible goal for myself– to run five miles in Central Park within 90 days. The support I got from dozens of friends and business associates — and a mastermind group that I created — showed me the power of having a team in achieving an unreasonable goal.

That’s when I decided to dedicate my life to helping others achieve the unreasonable.

Chicken Soup for the Soul is a series of nonfiction books, each of which contains a collection of short, inspirational stories and motivational essays. There are now hundreds of titles, and it is one of the best selling nonfiction series of all time.

As you know, they have long branched out from their original book to titles like, Chicken Soup for the Writer’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Adopted Souland many others.

That’s where I come in to this story. Chicken Soup of the Soul had been working on the title, Chicken Soup of the Entrepreneur’s Soul for seven or eight years. The format of the book follows the theme of the series, and includes inspiring stories and essays written by entrepreneurs to help motivate other entrepreneurs. The content is meant to be uplifting, and to encourage entrepreneurs to move beyond obstacles.  I am one of the entrepreneurs who shared their story.
