Nothing to Lose, Everything to Gain : How I Went from Gang Member to Multimillionaire Entrepreneur Paperback
by Ryan Blair
Like many entrepreneurs, Ryan Blair had no formal business education.
But he had great survival instincts, tenacity, and, above all, a "nothing to lose" mindset.
His middle-class childhood ended abruptly when his abusive father succumbed to drug addiction and abandoned the family.
Blair and his mother moved to a rough neighborhood, and soon he was in and out of juvenile detention, joining a gang just to survive.
Then his mother fell in love with a successful entrepreneur who took Ryan under his wing.
With his mentor's guidance, Blair started his first company, 24/7 Tech, at age twenty-one.
He has since created and sold several companies for hundreds of millions of dollars.
This is an inspirational guide full of powerful stories and lessons and a road map for entrepreneurial success.
