Brick by Brick: Success in Business and Life A01 By (author) N Paul Bassi 216 138 462 BB Hardback 312 Bloomsbury Business Bloomsbury Publishing PLC London United Kingdom KFFR Property & real estate BGBA Autobiography: business & industry KJ Business & management KJH Entrepreneurship 1.3 KJH KFFR DNBB1 KJ Entrepreneurship Property & real estate Autobiography: business & industry Business & Management Success is a simple thing that most people believe to be something mysterious and complicated - the reality, according to Paul Bassi, is something completely different. In the vast majority of cases, the people at the top have got there by following disciplines that open to everyone. The truth about success is that it's closer than you might think but harder work than you expect. Anyone can be successful in life - by your own definition, which is the only one that really matters - if you set yourself a central ambition and follow some fundamental principles about how it can be achieved. While the advice in this book may look primarily at business and property, the underlying themes are applicable to whatever life and career you wish to pursue. Drawing on stories from his youth, early career, family life and his current position as one of the Midlands' most prominent property investors, Paul Bassi shows how you can plan your own journey to success. It won't be easy; it won't happen overnight; and it won't come without making sacrifices. But if you want it badly enough and are prepared to be disciplined and relentless in your approach, it is all perfectly possible. This book will show you exactly what it takes. Don't mentor one more person, don't lead one more coaching session, don't conduct one more appraisal, without having first read this book. Paul Bassi reviews success, breaks it down, pulverises it... and then rebuilds it in a way that forces readers to ask questions of themselves: excellent! -- Lord Digby Jones, International Businessman and Cross-Bench Peer in the House of Lords Paul's energising argument is that anyone can be a success in life. Whilst there is no entitlement or magic ingredient, Paul offers practical advice built on his years of experience in the property industry. Always a modest man, his tips are generously given and sound so natural. The tough bit will be following them! -- Andy Street CBE, Mayor of West Midlands & Former MD of John Lewis Through his philanthropic work, Paul has shared his success with his friends, neighbours and local community. He has a generous spirit and believes that everyone - no matter where they come from - should be able to succeed as far as their individual talent and hard work can take them. He is an inspiration to us all. -- Tom Watson MP, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party Whoever and wherever we are, the bottom line is that we all need a beckoning vision, a life plan or aspiration that pulls us on and drives us on. Nobody is better able to picture that vision for us, and ground it in reality, than Paul Bassi. -- John Crabtree OBE, Lord Lieutenant of the West Midlands Paul unpacks what many people want to know in a simple, accessible and human way. His words and actions have inspired me, whether he is in front of me talking over a cup of tea, or whilst I am having one of my 'what would Paul do here?' conversations with myself. I would compel anyone of any age and walk of life to read this book, as there will be something inside it that will resonate with you. -- Paul Thandi DL, CEO of The NEC Group Paul has been immensely successful, achieved by deploying his most powerful weapons - good old-fashioned common sense and a straightforward way of dealing with people and business. Combined with a fabulous work ethic, he has become the go-to businessman in the Midlands. -- William Wyatt, CEO of Caledonia Investments Plc The journey of Paul's family as Indian immigrants, through to Paul achieving huge success across his businesses in the United Kingdom, is a truly inspirational read. -- Asha Bhosle, Legendary Singer and Global Restaurateur Paul Bassi is CEO of REI Plc, a publicly-quoted Real Estate Investment Trust and Chairman of Likewise Group Plc, listed on The International Stock Exchange. Paul is Non-Executive Chairman of Bond Wolfe and former Non-Executive Chairman of CP Bigwood. He was previously Regional Chairman/Strategy Advisor to Coutts (West Midlands), former Director of the Birmingham Hippodrome and past President of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce. Paul was appointed High Sheriff for the West Midlands in 2009, and has received honorary doctorates from both Birmingham City University and Aston University. In 2010, Paul was awarded a CBE in the New Year's Honours in recognition of his services to business and the community in the West Midlands. 25072019 02 RRP including tax GB GBP 16.99 0.00 16.99 This price includes a tax element GB 20 Available 26 BERT GARD Y Success is a simple thing that most people believe to be something mysterious and complicated - the reality, according to Paul Bassi, is something completely different.
