Fashioning Reality is compelling and sincere. The David and Goliath similarity is spellbinding and inspirational. I couldn't put it down.
Part I deals with his idea of making social change in the fashion world by calling and emailing the who's who of the fashion world. Using his business savvy and his diplomatic style, he explains to companies,that using non-traditional models is a must for today's world and will improve their bottom line. He goes into personal detail about the ups and down of starting a business when you are 14 and have no contacts, capital or even a fax machine! I was completely captivated reading about the incredibly interesting people he meets along the way and how he handled all of this at such a young age.
Part Two delves into Ben's model of entrepreneurship, The Balanced Contract. He introduces us to several other entrepreneurs and their rise to success. The gem of this part and the key to Ben's success, are the 10 questions he asks himself on a regular basis and the answers he gives are invaluable.
These are tools that will equip anyone starting out. Read Ben's book and you will be motivated into achieving your dreams.
I believe it is an essential read for anyone wanting to start a business. It will boost your confidence in your abilities at any age. It is extremely motivating, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is about to embark on any new initiative in their lives.
Fashioning Reality is an inspirational, motivating, and captivating book that is not only for entrepreneurs, but for anyone who appreciates hard work and years of dedication for something you truly feel passionate about.
Simply, wow. Hats off you to Ben Barry, you amaze me!
I also really enjoyed the interviews with other young entrepreneurs, which stressed the valuable resource in young minds, and how businesses and industries can actually profit and thrive through the helping, instead of at the expense, of others.
Fashioning Reality is raw, honest, amusing, insightful, and a great read. We need more people like Ben Barry out there taking steps to promote diversity in the fashion industry -- it just makes sense from a business standpoint and a social one. I would 100% recommend this book!
