Entrepreneur to Megapreneur (Hardcover Edition)
They started with nothing but a dream and an idea, and against all odds, became the megapreneurs of their fields. The lessons they learned along the way were vital to their success and for the first time they intimately share those lessons with author, Lesa J Hinchliffe.
For most of these entrepreneurs, there were no books to guide them; no one to learn from – they had no choice but to learn on the go. Each took risks. They experienced failures, disappointments and fear but there were great triumphs too and subsequently the lessons they now share in this book are invaluable tools for people going into business. Their lessons form the basis by which you can plan your own path forward – the things you have to know, the things you have to do, and the things you should never do.
The Foreword, by His Excellency the Governor of Western Australia, Hon. Kim Beazley AC, notes:
“Lesa Hinchliffe, by writing this book, has given us an extraordinary insight and an opportunity to learn from the fascinating real experiences and lessons of eight very successful businesspeople. The point of difference in this book is in where they all started – some literally had nothing, not even an education. Theirs are stories of hardship, sacrifice, collapse, courage and ultimately the reward for never giving in.”
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It comes to life with colourful stories and anecdotes. Each of the subjects was surprisingly candid as they recounted their life stories, from their formative years as children through the highs and lows of building their businesses. I came away with a real sense of what makes them tick.

Entrepreneur to Megapreneur is a wonderfully written book designed to expose the real story behind the man or woman in the entrepreneurial hot seat. As a person who is well versed with entrepreneurs,' I found Lesa's book full of thoughtful insights and was pleased to see both success and failures brought to life in an easy to read narrative. In this book, we gain powerful insights into what it takes to get to the top and more importantly see the life that goes with the challenges embedded in the entrepreneurial journey. One to read!"
