How do we turn ourselves into entrepreneurs?
Having the drive, ambition and inspiration to start a new business takes a particular mindset, so it's no wonder we regard successful entrepreneurs as modern-day magic-makers. But what if that spirit and motivation were applied outside the world of business start-ups?
An entrepreneur seeks to build something from nothing; to take an idea and make it a reality. This book explores what it takes to be an accomplished entrepreneur - from the ability to disrupt the status quo to the use of 'design thinking' to generate fresh perspectives, build resilience and learn from failure - ultimately leading us to understand what's at the heart of great entrepreneurial thinking. By harnessing the passion, verve and creative thinking of an entrepreneur, you can improve your business, as well as your life and relationships beyond it.
