Success as an entrepreneur carries the hidden risk of severe pain and suffering resulting from poor health, overwork, and stress.
Sebastiaan Hooft is the perfect example. As one of the Netherlands’ best-known and most successful entrepreneurs, he nearly lost it all to a complete physical, mental, and emotional breakdown.
"If you’re an entrepreneur who struggles with working too much and you know that it’s affecting your health, this is the book for you." - Author Hour about Redesign
After nine months of painful recovery, Hooft survived and made it his mission to help fellow entrepreneurs avoid the same fate.
Hooft aims to prove that entrepreneurs can have it all while living a fulfilling, healthy, and balanced personal life.
"This is the part—the changing of yourself, the letting go—that's frightening. Change equals discomfort for many people. But I think entrepreneurs look at change equaling opportunity. You've got to focus on the opportunity." - Joe Cross, Founder and CEO of Reboot, filmmaker of Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead about Redesign
