What if there was a way to win in your business life without having to lose anything in your personal life?
Jordan Milne, an entrepreneur and graduate of the Advanced Diploma in Entrepreneurship managed by Cambridge Judge Business School’s Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL), has co-written a best-selling book on entrepreneurship that debuted at no.3 on Amazon’s Top Hot New Releases and is to launch in the UK on 2 May. He and co-author Martin Bjergegaard set out to question the perception that those wishing to build hugely successful businesses and make a fortune have to pay a heavy price in terms of extensive working hours and loss of personal, family life.
These two passionate entrepreneurs went on a global search for a certain type of role model, i.e. those individuals who have managed to start and grow businesses without compromising their own lives. The book, Winning Without Losing, is the result of talking to a range of extremely successful, yet balanced entrepreneurs and business leaders.
The role models interviewed include some of the world’s most innovative entrepreneurs and thought leaders, such as Chad Troutwine, CEO of leading global test preparation company Veritas Prep; Derek Sivers, founder of CD Baby; Markus Frind, CEO of PlentyofFish.com; Caterina Fake, co-founder of Flickr and Hunch.com; David Cohen, co-founder of TechStars; Sophie Vandebroek, CTO of Xerox…
The book offers strategies and tactics to improve efficiency and release time and energy to enjoy all the things life offers outside work. The lessons are equally applicable to those outside of business – anyone who is looking for a little more balance in their lives.
Dr Shailendra Vyakarnam, Director of the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL) at Cambridge Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, said:
Every entrepreneur should read this book as an antidote to the mythologies of being a successful entrepreneur.
