192 pages2 hours


Jordan Daykin hit the headlines at the age of 18 when he became the youngest ever person to win investment in the Dragons' Den for his invention GripIt, a building product he created with his grandad in the garden shed.

GripIt was an instant success, attracting interest from DIY and building supply stores across the country within days of being launched. Today, GripIt Fixings is a global enterprise, with his products stocked in stores around the world. And Jordan is a popular motivational speaker.

But beyond the glamour of the television studios and business success, there is a very different story to tell, as Jordan battled to overcome the legacy of a difficult childhood affected by dropping out of school at a young age, family feuds and periods of loneliness.

This is Jordan's unflinching, heart-warming and ultimately uplifting story of how he overcame immense obstacles to achieve outstanding success as an entrepreneur. He reveals how he came up with ideas for his first businesses, describes how a business is built up from scratch, and shows how his tremendous work ethic and passion for business is at the heart of his success.

Jordan Daykin's story will grip and inspire entrepreneurs of all ages.
