Click below to buy Joseph Valente's new book, Expelled from the Classroom to Billionaire Boardroom.
The eagerly anticipated autobiography and business guide, Expelled from the Classroom to Billionaire Boardroom, chronicles Joseph Valente's unexpected, yet inspirational, journey from school expulsion at age 15, to his winning of the BBC's Apprentice at 25, to partnership with TV's most famous billionaire.
Valente's journey to where he is now hasn't been easy. There was an alcoholic father, a mother who worked three jobs, and an uncle who set off an early spark in his young mind.
But this isn't just a story of personal victory. Those wanting to know what really happened on the hit TV show, The Apprentice, will not be disappointed. Valente discloses his doubts about stepping away from ImpraGas, risking the loss of everything he'd worked for, the triumph of his win and his partnering with Lord Sugar. Add to that Joseph's account of how he bought back his shares from Lord Sugar and achieved a turnover of close to three million pounds in the first 12 months of his new business model, and you've got a guide for anyone with small business aspirations or big corporate dreams.
"I travelled back to the house alone. It was all out of my hands now. There was one more final boardroom meeting with Lord Sugar—together with Vana as my rival—but I had already done everything I possibly could have done."
Praise for Expelled by Brad Burton, the UK's #1 Motivational Business Speaker:
"In life, there are talkers and doers. Joseph is one of the few people who excel at both…"
"…a truly honest insight into the highs of success and the lows of failure. And more importantly, it's a story of learning from mistakes and experience."
