Ambition cover

NEWS: I’ve just returned from taking a one-woman show Ambition to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The show is an entertaining look at how to achieve goals and would make a brilliant keynote speech – do email me on enquiries@rachelbridge.com if you would like to book me for your next event.

Hello, I’m Rachel Bridge – welcome to my website. I’m a motivational author and speaker specialising in personal development, smart thinking and entrepreneurship. I have just written my sixth book Ambition: Why it’s good to want more and How to get it which looks at how to achieve your goals and includes anecdotes and advice from successful people in all areas of life. You can buy it here and from all good bookshops.

I have also written five best-selling books about entrepreneurs, including How to make a Million before Lunch and How to Start a business without any Money, both published by Virgin Books. I am the former Enterprise Editor of The Sunday Times and now write on a freelance basis for The Times and The Telegraph and other publications.

I really love talking about successful people and what we can learn from them – and how we can use that knowledge to further our personal ambitions or career development, and how companies can use it to retain, motivate and inspire their workforce. So if you would like me to speak at or facilitate your next conference or event please do get in touch – you can email me directly on enquiries@rachelbridge.com.

As well as my one-woman show Ambition, I also took a show about entrepreneurs, called How to Make a Million before Lunch, to the Edinburgh fringe festival in 2010.

Please do follow me on Twitter @rachelbridge100 for details of what I’m doing and when.

Events I have spoken at or facilitated recently have included: Jersey’s Festival of Words, Global Entrepreneurship Week, Association of British Credit Unions annual conference, Avanta small business roundtable, National Enterprise Network annual conference, Nectar Business Awards roundtable, Sage theatre at Accountex exhibition, International Women’s Day at the British Embassy in Paris, Discuss and Do Festival in Frome, Entrepreneur Live for schools.

I’m also happy to write content for your website or publication – just get in touch on enquiries@rachelbridge.com.

Basically, I am fascinated by successful people and entrepreneurs and what we can learn from them, and more generally I am keen to support, encourage and inspire people to take control of their lives and pursue their dream, whatever that may be, and at whatever age and stage they are at in their lives.

Incidentally, when I wrote my book How to Start a Business Without any Money I also started my own teeny tiny business (without any money) selling mugs and canvas bags with the word ENTREPRENEUR on them – the perfect present for all the budding entrepreneurs in your life. Both are available in deep pink or blue, you can buy them at www.entrepreneurthings.com. Here’s a picture:
