The Fun Side of Being Serious

The financial recession has hit the world by storm and as the darkness of the world’s economic crisis begins to blanket the earth, a small yet powerful resistance can be seen in the distance. Armed with an idea, a laptop and a South African attitude, the resistance took root on the southernmost tip of Africa. An adventure filled with guts, glory and ambition, The Fun Side of Being Serious follows the journey of one entrepreneur’s dream; it charts his challenges and successes as he starts his own online business – FirstStep.me.

Written by a young South African of Indian descent who dared to defy his parents and not become an accountant, a doctor or a lawyer (the notorious LAD system) and co-written by a journalist with an ego that only Woodward and Bernstein could match, the book provides a refreshing and honest look at the challenges facing both entrepreneurs and young South Africans.
