Drawing on the success of her weekly column, comes 'How I Made It : 40 successful entrepreneurs reveal'. The adapted book, 'How I Made It' is a snapshot of entrepreneurial success by 40 of today's successful business owners in the UK. Each piece takes the form of an interview with a successful entrepreneur. The entrepreneurs have been chosen by the author from a wide variety of industries and backgrounds, but in each case the focus of the interviews is on ordinary people that readers can relate to and learn from. They are individuals who started their business from scratch and managed to turn it into a success without the help of influential friends or access to large funds.
In profile format, Bridge probes into the mind of these entrepreneurs detailing their backgrounds, early careers, aspirations and motivation. The interviews chart each of the so- called 'maverick's' rise to success and their current financial worth at the top of their game. But its not all ranting and raving about their success. The entrepreneurs also reveal where they stumbled, what mistakes they made and how they learnt from the experience.Read more ›
The profiles are written well,are up to date with the credit crunch etc, explain their differing situations and inspirations and are just the right length to make this book a must for anyone interested in how ideas were borne, and how to make your ideas become a reality.
It's an eye opening read and makes you think about the world, and yourself, differently. After all, entrepreneurs see opportunities where you and I see everyday things and the more you read about them, the more their mannerisms and philosophies begin to rub off on you. So if you're looking for an injection of inspiration and motivation in your life, look no further.
