About the Author
Robin Bennett came to business relatively late: not for him selling lemonade to neighbours from the front garden, cleaning cars with rags or a 4am paper round. Kindly grandparents and generous friends meant for a cosseted existence until being a penniless graduate plus the demands on an over-zealous bank manager forced him to start his first company, aged 23. All of which goes to show that entrepreneurs are just as often made, not born. Since founding the Bennett Group in 1992, he has started 8 separate companies - in private tuition, publishing, translation, dog kennels, sandwiches - all for less than £5000 each. 6 still trade, always in the black and never at the expense of high borrowing or the really important stuff, like family and friends.
