The most important factor is to find your "WHY". Why should i be an "Entrepreneur"? Inspired leaders regardless of their size of business or industry, know their "WHY"; that is how they communicate from the inside out. I do highly recommend reading the book "21 Entrepreneurship" as it will provide you not just the "WHY" but also the "WHAT" and "HOW"

One of the most rewarding career paths is entrepreneurship: following your passion, being your own boss, getting to be a leader, disrupting markets, and making tons of money! It's true, that's what most literature about entrepreneurship tells you: entrepreneurship is awesome! What they don't always mention though, is that 9 out of 10 start-ups fail. The leading cause of failure: incompetence and lack of knowledge and experience. Most entrepreneurs spend half their career learning from their mistakes. Luckily, people like Charles Odii and organisations like SME100Africa will save you the hassle of failure and take you straight to success. Charles has travelled the world and gathered knowledge from entrepreneurs all over the globe. After listening to the challenges of his compatriots, he tailored it to the African experience and aggregated it in this A-to-Z guide of being an entrepreneur.

This book was a God send. I cannot tell you how pivotal Charles' advice was when i made the decision to quit my role at one of the top Private Practices in London and start my own Multinational Practice. As someone who is based in London primarily, the advice within these pages can be applied anywhere you are. It is clear, gives real pointers, and the tables and tools keep you accountable. This is a must have for anyone looking to start a successful business.
