Product description

Anyone Can Do It chronicles the start and evolution of a successful business dream. Beginning with the Hashemi siblings' first conversations (when the seed of the idea was planted) it follows the progress of Coffee Republic from business plan to the present day. Coffee Republic is now worth around 50m with 90 outlets around the UK. This is a start-up business book for real people. Sahar and Bobby take the reader step by step through every aspect of starting and growing a business from asking 'why?' and writing the plan to hiring staff and letting go. The book is illustrated throughout with inspirational anecdotes from their own experience. It is a very personal story of dreaming, acting and succeeding offering a myriad of lessons for aspiring entrepreneurs and blowing apart the myth that only 'special' people start successful businesses. "The story of [Sahar's] trip to New York and subsequent cravings for skinny lattes is the stuff of coffee shop legend." The Sunday Times [Sahar is] the Lawyer who put the cream in our coffee." The Guardian "A business book charting her experience from the kitchen table to the boardroom table." The Financial Times "The vitality of our economy depends on encouraging more people to start and grow a business. I welcome this refreshingly honest and insightful book which lifts the lid on what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur, and explains what it's like to tke a dream to market." Martin Wyn Griffith, Chief Executive of DTI's Small Business Service "Coffee Republic has been a great success story and an inspirational role model for entrepreneurs in all business sectors. Being an entrepreneur can be lonely position and books such as this illustrate the 'nuts and bolts' of entrepreneurialism, but also give invaluable access to the experience for others." Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of Institute of Directors Enterprises. "An exhilarating brew! All the ingredients are here - just bring your own passion and commitment." John Bates, Foundation of Entrepreneurial Management, London Business School
