What’s your Unfair Advantage?
This ground-breaking book exposes the myths behind success, illuminating the real forces at work and showing how they can be harnessed in your favour. An unfair advantage is whatever gives you an edge over your competition – everyone has one, and it is the seed to your success.
Drawing on over two decades of hands-on experience in the world of entrepreneurship, Ash Ali and Hasan Kubba show how to identify your own unfair advantages and apply them at any stage of any project or startup – from launching your own business to gaining recognition, raising funds and getting traction.
Brimming with case studies, from Snapchat to Google and Oprah Winfrey to Richard Branson, The Unfair Advantage helps you look at yourself and your circumstances to find the ingredients you didn’t realise you already had to succeed in the cut-throat world of business and startups.
What they are. How they work.
