“Where does a new business idea come from? A need in a market is one answer, but only a partial one. For someone has to meet that need – and for that, they must have the drive, energy, and ambition to overcome any obstacle. Owls to Peacocks gives a refreshing and inspiring glimpse into the roots and ambitions of 50 high profile entrepreneurs. Their stories are varied and unique, but what they all have in common is a journey of self-discovery and hope.”
