About Steve Parks

At the age of 16 when Steve Parks told his school careers adviser that he wanted to work for the BBC or run his own business they laughed and suggested a career in electronic engineering. Steve began his career as a journalist and presenter for BBC Radio in 1994. His work has been broadcast on Radio 4, Radio 5-Live, Radio 1, Radio 2, BBC TV and the 'Today' programme. He left the BBC to form his own company, which is now the UK's leading publisher of business audio. Steve has written articles for business magazines, comedy sketches for BBC's Dead Ringers and is currently working on his first novel. The author draws his knowledge for this book from his own career, and also from the experiences of close friends who are successful entrepreneurs. He is regularly approached by people for advice on starting their own business, and has launched a vast community for entrepreneurs, Flyingstartups.com, helping startups to network and gain tips, advice, and ongoing support.
