Becoming Bulletproof

How to become bulletproof without wearing a vest.

This book defines what it means to be bulletproof in life and in business. This is a recurring theme, which has become a central idea in David’s life, his business and everything he does.

Because life throws things at you sometimes, and when it does, you only have three choices:

 

1. you can keep your head down
2. run away or

3. stand and fight.

And if you are going to stand and fight (which is the only way to win), then you are going to need some pretty good protection.

"Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great."

- John D. Rockefeller

So, what’s in it for me?

What can I take away from Child-biting, Chorizo and Chancing Your Arm?

In many ways, David intended to write a book for people who want to make a career for themselves within the wonderful world of translation, localisation and linguistics. The more he thought about the content he wanted to include, the more he realised how much it had to offer. What he had learned could be valuable within any type of business, or in life in general.

There are tons of useful lessons. These are proven insights that David has discovered or been taught along the way, and are the real key to the book, containing ideas and truths that have helped shape his own success.

Ultimately, these lessons point towards the bigger idea: the route to becoming bulletproof and being able to deal with whatever life throws in your path.

It’s a fun read. David is fascinated by the romance, potential and influence of language, so he’s collected together some of his favourite linguistic mishaps, quirks and curiosities from around the world. These sections are for your enjoyment and entertainment, and might even win you a few trivia board games at Christmastime.

What Others Say

"A compelling read and a vibrant account of a most extraordinary journey in a notoriously complex and challenging translation industry.

 

Always generous in its advice, what makes this story so captivating is David’s positive approach to life and business, his message of optimism and hope, and his profound belief that hard work, high standards and perseverance will always keep you afloat.

Certainly one of the most inspirational rags-to-riches entrepreneurs in the localisation field I’ve ever met!"
