Robert is a successful entrepreneur, with a thriving business portfolio and a lifestyle that enables him and his family to live the life of freedom that he had always desired. While hosting a party for his daughter’s 8th birthday, he begins to reminisce on the stages of her life so far, and realises the enlightening similarities and synergies with his entrepreneurial journey. This book documents an entrepreneur’s route to success, by showing the parallels between the phases of a child’s development and the qualities and mind-sets required for any existing or aspiring entrepreneur. Inspired by the author’s own entrepreneurial journey and experience as a parent, “The Child In The Entrepreneur” tells a story that will resonate with every current or potential entrepreneur, while providing an emotive, entertaining, thought-provoking parallel with an entrepreneur’s life, topped with tips to success and achievement for any forward-thinking reader.
Born in London (England), I have spent 20 years as an entrepreneur enjoying and enduring the life that entrepreneurship hands those willing to undertake it. As a husband and father, I learnt extremely early on that there is an undeniable responsibility and necessity to succeed, with the dependencies of loved ones always constantly in the forefront of everything that you do. But that was part of the motivation for always striving to succeed.
It was this family dynamic with my entrepreneurial endeavours that inspired me to write The Child In The Entrepreneur. I like to think that it resonates in some way with everybody in some capacity, who can relate to either family, work, business, dreams, or aspirations.
