Is becoming an entrepreneur on your list of New Year's resolutions? "Life Entrepreneurs," a new book by Christopher Gergen and Gregg Vanourek, argues that the concept isn't limited to your career — it's about creating the complete life that you want.

The book takes readers through a process of getting in touch with their core identity, creating their vision for their lives and making that vision a reality. It features interviews with 55 entrepreneurs from a variety of fields about how they created work that they love, that serves others and that aligns with their values. It's all about an "electric attitude of what's possible," says Vanourek, who talked with us by phone last month. He is a founding partner of New Mountain Ventures, an entrepreneurial leadership development company. This is the first installment of a two-part column featuring excerpts of our conversation (edited for length and clarity). This week, Vanourek talks about having an entrepreneurial mind-set even in a tough economy.

Entrepreneur launches online grocery service

Florida grocers were unable to turn a profit from online supermarkets, but Pinellas County has a new online grocery delivery service that's giving the tricky business a shot.

Madeira Beach entrepreneur Martin Jordanov has launched the Pinellas and Hillsborough franchise of WeGoShop.com .

His Marto International is part of a national franchise that offers customers a way to send in an online shopping list for the retailer of their choice.

The service doesn't show prices. An order costs $15 a delivery with discounts rising with order size.

So far Jordanov is doing the shopping and delivering orders himself.
