What does it really take to become a successful entrepreneur?
If you look at those who have already achieved this goal you’ll find that the reason they stand out is not because of the way they read a balance sheet, fill in forms, meet the bank manager or any of the other topics covered in most books on building businesses.
They stand out because of the attitude they have, the way they identify opportunities and a range of other key attitudes and skills that are identified in this book. These are so-called ‘soft’ skills that are glossed over in other books on entrepreneurship – but they are absolutely vital. They are the difference that makes the difference.
In How to be an Entrepreneur you’ll learn about these six secrets of successful entrepreneurs, and find out how you can apply them in your business to achieve the goal of self-made success.

He left the BBC to form his own company, which is now the UK’s leading publisher of business audio.

The author draws his knowledge for this book from his own career, and also from the experiences of close friends who are successful entrepreneurs. He is regularly approached by people for advice on starting their own business, and has launched a vast community for entrepreneurs, Flyingstartups.com, helping startups to network and gain tips, advice, and ongoing support.
