His other books, and his articles on sustainability and innovation,
can be found here.

As a sole proprietor he has advised more than 50 innovative companies ranging from global market leaders to rapid-growth technology companies. His patented Strategic Harmony® method for evaluating and prioritizing alternatives has also been used in coaching people through making choices about work and career that will best serve their authentic selves.

Like most entrepreneurs, he has taken risks and made mistakes. He wrote this book to help readers benefit from those mistakes without having to make them themselves – and more readily see the opportunities and reap the rewards of being your own boss. If, that is, you’re cut out for independent work.
