When Michelle Dewberry entered for The Apprentice, she was already earning a six-figure salary. However, she seized the chance to learn from one of Britain's most successful and charismatic businessmen, Sir Alan Sugar. The series earned huge ratings, but what few viewers understood was the struggles Michelle had undergone to get that far. Breaking free from a violent and abusive father, she had led her family to safety, while trying to come to terms with her grief at her sister's death. She suffered from bulimia and severe depression, but defeated her own personal demons to establish herself as a businesswoman with a refreshingly optimistic outlook. Catapulted into the public eye, Michelle had to overcome more private grief when she miscarried her baby. Yet despite all these difficulties she remains defiantly optimistic, and has gone on to succeed in business, writing, television and life-coaching. This book will give inspiration to all who read it. Michelle Dewberry could have seen herself as a victim, but she prefers to live life by the maxim 'If you believe in yourself, anything is possible' and knows that only she is responsible for achieving her ultimate goals.
Michelle Dewberry grew up in Hull and left school with few qualifications. Having already become successful in her career, she entered the TV show The Apprentice, and won. After leaving Sir Alan Sugar's company, she has now set up her own business.
