Including an interview with Startups Magazine's Founder and Editor Daisy Stapley-Bunten [p.45]:
"[Daisy Stapley-Bunten] had this insight, 'a lot of people come out of university looking for a perfect job doing what they love', but they're thwarted by the grind of corporate life unless they do their own thing. She's inspired by the way markets work now, changing from consumer bases to communities of users. On a personal level she's driven by an ambition to succeed, 'if you know what you want and are hungry enough, you'll get it.'

Start-Ups, Pivots and Pop-Ups is a must read for anyone with a business idea and the desire to be successful. It gives the reader the skills and knowledge to survive in today's innovation and entrepreneurial-focused world. This book is about starting a business. It's about putting your toe in the entrepreneurial water - perhaps through doing a short term business gig or a pop-up business- and then seeing what happens. It shows you how to listen to the customer and work out why failures may happen, and when they do, you'll learn how to deal with them and create a new business that is robust and ready to grow.
Coaching is an art, but it's far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, provide an answer or unleash a solution. Giving another person the opportunity to find their own way, make their own mistakes, and create their own wisdom is both brave and vulnerable.

Author and Coach to Senior Executives, Richard Hall said: “This book is about starting a business.

Co-Author Rachel Bell, serial entrepreneur and founder of six successful and award-winning PR companies, commented: “We understand the importance of being smart, not just clever. That education and intellect alone is not enough to be a voice of influence; University is no longer simply the answer. Richard and I wrote Start-Ups, Pivots and Pop-ups as we both have a wealth of business experience that we wanted to share, the good and the bad, some of my biggest lessons have come from my fallouts, and ultimately pathed the way for my ventures.”
