From the Author Jon Gillespie-Brown

“I wrote this book after mentoring 100s people of all ages, skills, backgrounds and ambitions over the last ten years.I loved hearing their stories and absorbing the passions for their ideas or businesses.

When they asked for help and advice I found myself asking the same questions again and again in an effort help them get the most out of their dreams as well as their lives. This book is a result of working with all of those people both formally and informally.

So many of my mentees had ideas that were a million miles away from their true nature or what they wanted from their personal lives, life stage or personality. It was as if the idea was totally disconnected from them as a person.

My ambition is to help people bring together both their dream and a deeper understanding of themselves so they can make a simple decision – will this business idea suit me or should I do something else, like stay in my job or find a better employer. I wanted a practical and fun process to help people tease out their big dreams and then couple that with their real passions and abilities in order for them maximise their chances of success.”
