Ever wondered why entrepreneurial business owners want to risk it all when they could very easily settle for a ‘proper job’? What makes them dust themselves down and carry on when everyone around them is saying ‘it won’t work’? In this series of 21 inspirational interviews Gary Gorman spills the beans on what makes the real life business owner tick….and how you can do the same!
Gary has quizzed 21 real life entrepreneurs about the challenges they have faced getting their businesses up and running. But these aren’t the untouchable mega-rich business personalities found on our TV screens, they are down to earth people facing the same challenges and day-to-day issues that test modern day business owners week in and week out. You’ll read about such people as Brad Burton, Andy Lopata, Simon Jordan, Jenny Flintoft, Geoff Ramm, Sharon Wright, Steve Clarke….and many more.
They’ll tell you what got them through in times of difficulty and how you can avoid making the same mistakes. They’ll tell you about the inner strength you’ll need in order to follow your dream and build a sustainable and fulfilling business. Some stories are genuinely soul searching. You’ll read about Ebay sellers, ‘Deal or No Deal’ contestants, early school leavers, corporate ‘suits’, a bankrupt and a Dragon’s Den contestant. You’ll be moved, inspired, motivated and want to get out there, prove people wrong and make it happen for yourself!
