About the Author
Nikki Scott, originally from the north of England, started a career as an advertising executive in 2006. Quickly disillusioned with the corporate world, she left the UK only two years later to embark upon a solo-backpacking trip across Asia. This trip marked the beginning of the most important transition in Scott's life. In 2009 she founded the first in a series of travel magazines, South East Asia Backpacker Magazine. Since then, she has lived on three continents and written extensively on travel as lifestyle, backpacker philosophy and the entrepreneurial spirit. Her book "Backpacker Business" tells of the adventures of running a business in Southeast Asia and shares some of the more personal challenges she's faced along the way. She currently lives in Barcelona, Spain with her boyfriend.

The book is part backpacker travelogue, part business memoir, part journal of life abroad, and is written in a candid and honest manner. Crucially, Nikki is a very likeable person, which really helps in a book like this. Indeed, it's a really moving story in parts, as she goes through some tough times and doesn't sugar coat the experience.
The obvious groups of people this will appeal to are backpackers and entrepreneurs, especially the conjunction between the two. It's always inspiring to hear someone having an idea and following it through, but what makes this particularly so is when you read about the author's self-doubt and setbacks. It'll likely make you think you could - and should - get out there and do something similar yourself.
