WHY NOW IS THE TIME TO JOIN THE RIDE
Darren Hardy became an entrepreneur at the age of 18. “I’d always been attracted to doing things outside the traditional structure,” he writes. “The idea of running your own business? Of controlling your own future and not being constrained by minimum wage and pointless rules? My inner rebel jumped out of line. It was like someone had just turned on the world’s brightest light bulb. I was in!”
Hardy continued his entrepreneurial journey, and through his first “’real” business, he was earning a six-figure annual income at age 19. Five years later, he was a self-made millionaire. By age 27, he had a business generating more than $50 million in revenue.
Over the past two decades, Hardy has been a business leader in the success and human achievement industry. As the Publisher of SUCCESS magazine, he has interviewed, studied, and gained insights from successful entrepreneurs including Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, Warren Buffett, Steve Jobs, Martha Stewart, and Anne Sweeney.
A New York Times best-selling author and media contributor, Hardy also mentors high-performing CEOs, advises large corporations, and sits on the board of several companies and nonprofit organizations.
Hardy’s mission for The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster and supporting resources is to ”onboard” and empower 10 million new entrepreneurs globally.
The first chapter of The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster walks aspiring entrepreneurs through what it takes to survive and thrive in business—from finding your passion to defining success.
Subsequent chapters include strategies for success, sales, and leadership.
