The Ten Keys to Success by John Bird

Are you struggling to achieve what you want?

John Bird, founder of The Big Issue, will show you just how simple success can be.

John believes that success is about deciding what you want, working out what is important to you and then going out to grab it.

John gives simple, practical tips and advice, such as 'Stop looking for approval from others' and 'Start with small steps'. In this way he shows us that we can all achieve whatever we want. We just need to go after it.

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.25 and sell it on to the public for £2.50, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
