Every seven minutes a child is bullied. One out of every three students in the United States have been targeted at school.

Conventional wisdom says that bullying is exclusively detrimental to one’s health, yet studies show that 47 percent of victims report a positive effect on their adult lives.

In Adversity to Advantage, Randy Ginsburg strives to inspire those who were bullied with words of wisdom from a diverse group of highly successful entrepreneurs. These individuals have overcome the aggressors from their past and used their negative experiences as stepping stones for personal and entrepreneurial growth.

In this book you will learn how:

  • Tom Ford beat bullying to launch one of the world's largest fashion houses and reinvent himself as an award-winning filmmaker.

  • Elon Musk's familiarity with pain helped him to start PayPal, Tesla, and SpaceX.

  • Andrew Nikou used his “super-power” to help him defeat his bullies and go on to found OpenGate Capital, a multi-billion dollar global private equity firm.

The best way to overcome the lingering effects of bullying is to harness the raw emotion from those memories and use it as fuel to motivate you. What better way to do this than through the power of creativity and entrepreneurship? Using his INVENT framework, Randy explores how to utilize the trauma of bullying to empower others to improve their lives and thrive as entrepreneurs.

What is the INVENT Framework ?

  • Establish Identity

  • Develop Nerve

  • Visualize Goals

  • Engage Others

  • Embrace the Now

  • Take the Third Door
