School taught us specific subjects, like maths and history.
But we weren’t taught:

  • How to sell
  • Or how to build relationships
  • Or how to negotiate
  • Or how to take care of our mental health
  • Or how to network
  • Or how to deal with personal finance

These most important situations we face as adults were never discussed with us when we were students. We weren’t taught these skills in school, and this makes all the success stories we hear about seem out of reach; it makes us feel dumb. We aren’t dumb, we just don’t know how to work the system.

Your school taught you how to run in the race; it didn’t teach you how to win. And that’s what this book is for. To help you win the race. Packed with useful advice gleaned from his own journey as an entrepreneur and content creator, this book by Raj Shamani is a must-read.
