Who is this book for?

This book is ideal for anybody who is keen to start their own business, looking for ways to gain more margin in their life (so they can do more with less), and anyone who wishes to learn how to recruit your next best talent.

More importantly, this book is for people who have sat on the fence for far too long.

There is an entrepreneur in every single one of us and I believe that we should let that out. Because you never know what you are capable of achieving until you are put to the test. The book is broken down into 11 individual chapters to help you zoom straight into what you need without the usual fluff.

Why you should read this?

Entrepreneurship has been part of my life since I was 26. I co-founded by first recruitment business then. What should have been a 2 year experiment became an 11 year journey.

In between I started a search firm, won a HR entrepreneur award and sat as a the President to the association for professional recruitment agencies. Now, I am running my training business, and helping a startup to grow their business in the cloud recruitment platform space for tech talents.

In what I do, I get to meet many people who are also aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners.

And I often get asked the same set of questions every time:

  1. How do you get started in your businesses?
  2. How do you manage your time with multiple projects at the same time (+ I have 3 kids to handle)
  3. I can’t hire anyone!

I try my best to answer these questions in my attempt to help. One day it just occur to me while running through somebody’s FAQ page that I have my personal FAQ. And that personal FAQ started the idea of a book to provide my answers.
