ANYONE CAN DO IT is my first book, which I wrote just after leaving Coffee Republic. It gives a step-by step guide to the challenges and difficulties, breakthroughs and breakdowns, joys and frustrations of starting a business. It blows apart the myth that entrepreneurship is a personality trait and only ‘special’ people can do it. Its packed with tips, advice and quotes that we found useful-and in the text are copies of our original business plan, early copies of our original business plan, early brainstorms and even bank rejection letters.
