Rupert Wilkey has done many things in his life since he worked for Paul Yiannakis farming tobacco in Malawi in 1981.
He has run a busy tractor dealership, provided security for pop stars such as Yazz, the Pogues and Kool & the Gang, to name but a few.
It was not until 1996 that he decided to start his own business in London, a business that was successful for over 15 years. Rupert has gone on to establish a further two companies and is on the lookout for the fourth.
Rupert will be the first to admit that it has not been an easy road but he has learnt some valuable lessons along the way, and is still learning.
This book is a brief insight into his lessons and the tricks he has learnt over the last 30 years for forming and running a successful business.
His game of chess as he calls it!
This is the 2nd edition of this book.
