Press Release: MicroBizChamp dedicates new book to 3M #ExcludedUK
Press Release ‘Sparking An Enterprise Revolution‘
70 Talks in 70 Towns for the #ExcludedUK Hardship Fund
Commencing on August 24, 2021, at Coventry University, Scarborough Campus, Tony aims to raise £1 million for the #ExcludedUK Hardship Fund from these 70 Talks in 70 towns and crowdfund.
The year-long tour will be completed by September 7, 2022 – his 70th birthday.
In addition to the talks and media engagements, Tony will run 7 miles in each town and city for Macmillan Cancer Support in memory of his five young friends. He will celebrate his 70th birthday by running his 8th Great North Run (half marathon) and Yorkshire Marathon by the end of September 2022.
All Tony’s royalties (£2 per copy) from sales of ‘The Happipreneur: Why MicroBizMatters?‘ go to the #ExcludedUK Hardship Fund. 3 million hardworking, tax-paying citizens have received little or no income support from the Government since the start of the pandemic despite lockdowns preventing them from earning a living. Most of the 3 million are freelancers, self-employed and micro-business owners and there have been 23 suicides to date.
HAPPIPRENEURSHIP IS A PRACTICAL PHILOSOPHY AND A CHOICE
Tony’s ‘Who Wants To Be A Happipreneur?’ talk, interviews, articles, posts, podcasts, radio and television explain why every size and type of organisation needs leaders willing to learn from business owners that are happipreneurs. All enterprising people can choose to be Happipreneurs.
At least four out of five #startups adopting the Happipreneurship philosophy will survive their first three years of trading.
Happipreneurs are successful in life and in an enterprise. They build happy and high impact teams, avoid damaging stress, innovate, collaborate and, most importantly happily, control their own destiny in the long term.
Whether, you’re a freelancer, or a multi-billionaire like Tony’s school friend, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, Happipreneurship is a business and life philosophy worth considering for yourself and enabling in others.
The Happipreneur was two years in the making. Taryn Lee Johnston and Tony Robinson OBE have updated the philosophy and business principles underpinning Schumacher’s influential work, Small is Beautiful.
Rather than produce a set of recommendations for policymakers the co-authors, with contributions from many well-known entrepreneurs, have written a practical guide of the values and actions which empower enterprising people.
Schumacher wrote about ‘economics as if people mattered’ but The Happipreneur is about ‘enterprise as if people cared’. What are the benefits to long term innovation, collaboration, survival, growth, health, fulfilment and happiness through enabling others to be enterprising and useful to others?
Check out the 5* reviews, testimonials and media coverage of The Happipreneur and ‘Happipreneurship talks. Leaders, parents, teachers, academics, students and all who wish to help people be more enterprising love it.
Tony’s enterprising and happipreneurship life story is less important than what he has learned from interviewing and working alongside the well-known entrepreneurs he most admires.
Every prospective #startup, side hostler, #startup, business owner, business leader, FTSE100 CEO and Small Business Minister from now to eternity should have a copy.
The talks and the book are dedicated to #ExcludedUK and £2 per copy sold, whether from bookstores or online, is donated to #ExcludedUK to help those desperately in need, in severe debt and unable to make ends meet and for mental health support to those in the 3 million who received little or no income support from the UK Government since the first lockdown in March 2020.
The book and the talk are an uplifting story and guide which describe the benefits of leading and enabling happy and fulfilled enterprising lives.
