Unleash your entrepreneurial spirit with a counterintuitive approach to starting your own venture or taking your career to the next level.

Start Before You're Ready offers entrepreneurs an inspiring new roadmap to success, one that runs against nearly everything you've ever been taught about business.

Author Mick Spencer is living proof that success doesn't always rest down the traditional path of formal education and deep pockets. At the age of 22, with nothing to his name, he founded ONTHEGO Custom Apparel (, a customised apparel and uniform company. Since then he has built a worldwide network of movers and shakers and raised millions in venture capital. His company is now a multi-million-dollar player on the international stage, disrupting the slow-moving industry with a modern blend of technological disruptions and social responsibility.

In this book, he presents a solid case that 'analysis paralysis' and endless 'preparation' won't get you anywhere. You have to take that leap and do what you really want to do. Indeed, start before you're ready!

Spencer challenges you to get outside your comfort zone and, although intimidating, his approach forces you to learn 'on the go' and focus on what you can do, rather than what you can't. Engrossing personal anecdotes coach you through the frustrations and challenges, while vital tools and clear strategies give you a concrete plan for making every day count, many of which have been taught to Mick by billionaires, global CEOs and business founders.

Chart your own path to success, even without a university degree or financial assets. Focus on what you can do right now to achieve your goals. Master self-reliance, overcome adversity and discover your true purpose. Learn positive habits and build confidence to overcome challenges. Starting your own venture or pushing the boundaries in your career is always a leap of faith. It's saying 'yes' before figuring out how to deliver. It's moments of self-doubt followed by fiery adventurousness and courageous optimism. You are at once inspired, vulnerable, motivated and proud - and you are capable of extraordinary things. Start Before You're Ready equips you with the inspiration and practical advice you need to succeed in today's entrepreneurial environment.
