Being in business is not for the faint of heart – and even possessing the traditional qualities usually associated with the best tycoons is no guarantee of success. So what happens when half a dozen brilliant go-getters not only swim against the tide, but have the audacity to end up fortunate and triumphant?
What happens is the creation of this book.
Join Fu-En Yee, Bavani Periasamy, Freda Liu, Norlida Azmi, Sharma Kumari, and Syireen Rose on a roller-coaster ride of defying expectations, overturning outdated societal norms, staying true to one’s self, and reaching out to help others who might face the same issues.
They dared to be Audacious – and you can too.
