“Fantastic! I wish this book was around when I started in business.”

Sir Tom Hunter

 

 “This book could make you a fortune. Packed with tips, invaluable insights and sound advice.”

An instant bestseller on launch, From Acorns has helped countless people build brilliant businesses. Now in its second edition, it’s been expanded to include information for small start-ups and those with ambitious growth plans. Inside you’ll find:

 

  • The entrepreneur’s Ten Commandments
  • When to use crying as a negotiating technique
  • Eleven ways to come up with a brilliant idea
  • Make yourself a better entrepreneur in three exercises
  • The Wizard of Oz school of marketing
  • Slaying the dragons – how to win at pitches
  • Ask the bride to dance – how to get a mentor
