More than 4 weeks availability


This book is aimed at parents who want to ignite the entrepreneurial spark so often ignored in young children, equipping them with the tools they need to make it in business and life. We often read about the defining qualities of an entrepreneur and there are numerous books on how to encourage your own business creativity but there is a paucity of information for parents who want to make sure their children are set up for success. Based on extensive interviews with young entrepreneurs and their parents, as well as expert advice and analysis from psychologists and business consultants, this book will appeal to readers of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother (Amy Chua). Analysing the common childhood traits, habits and "quirks" shared by entrepreneurs and their parents and packed with anecdotes and recollections from some of the UK's leading entrepreneurs, each chapter concludes with a toolbox of practical ideas and exercises for parents and children.

About Author

Hazel Davis is a freelance business and enterprise writer for the Financial Times, The Times, Guardian, Daily Telegraph and a host of other publications, as well as editor of SME Home, the Telegraph's sponsored online small business hub. She's edited three business bookazines for Future Publishing; 50 Best Business Books, 50 Best Business Leaders, 50 Best Businesses and is former editor of Fresh Young Millionaire. She also does copywriting for a number of clients including Virgin, HP and a variety of small businesses. Despite these achievements, she's fairly sure she skipped 80 percent of her school homework. Hazel has two small daughters, one of whom avidly abides by the ethos 'Think Differently' but not necessarily 'Do No Evil'. Hugh Wilson is a freelance journalist and corporate copywriter with 20 years' experience working in the national and international markets. He started his journalistic career as a reporter on Retail Week and has written for the Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Independent, The Times, Daily Mail, BBC Online, Express and Daily Mirror. He's written advertising copy for corporate clients such as Johnson & Johnson, Lego, Ford and many more. He is current editor of Fresh Young Millionaire, a business magazine for young people. His mother would say he was quite messy. Hugh has two children, one of whom is already well on the way to breaking every rule in this book and appears to be building a healthy nest-egg (mostly from his father's coffers).
