My Dad was in the Essex Police Force for 12 years, so it’s something I learned about through the stories that he used to tell me. Although his days in the force were pre-radios back in the late 1960’s and sounded like a lot more fun than serving in the police is today. I always got the impression from Dad that he would have been content with a salary of double what he was getting, and although he did get my entrepreneurial spirit the notion of the £1m a year pay check seemed totally foreign to him. One thing which I always held dear was his praise of me, “I’m proud of you, Rob, for running your own business; I’d have loved to have done what you’ve done.” Praise indeed. Which is why, in reading Alex’s book, I realised he was missing this vital blueprint to move from serving police officer to entrepreneur. Alex’s book is perhaps three decades too late for my Dad, but it’s not too late for you. This is a great resource. Embrace it
This is just amazing. As an ex Police Officer I know how tunnell visioned the 'JOB' can make you. You very quickly become a part of the establishment and think that there can be nothing outside of the Police. I honestly don't know anyone in the JOB that isn't looking for a way out. Well this is IT! Alex has created a system that can help Police Officers with the transition from working shifts to being their own Boss, Alex has made this easy and describes the process in this amazing book. Get out of the 'Trap' we are only here once so make it count, if you do the same things today as you did yesterday then you will never change. So today, buy this book and learn how you can make a huge difference in your life. Thank you Alex for writing this amazon resources.
Being a serving police officer of many years, I have seen first-hand the many changes that have taken place within the force, unfortunately to the detriment of police officers.
After a lot of consideration and soul searching I decided that I had to start looking at other alternatives due to the constant stresses and impact on my health and personal life, such as: last minute cancelled rest days, missing significant events with family and friends, extra work load for the same pay, and a feeling of being constantly under valued and appreciated. Fortunately, a friend of mine (who has long left the force and set up his own business he is passionate about) recommended I read ‘Police Officer to Entrepreneur’, and I am so pleased I took his advice!
This book has completely changed my mind-set (which I have learned is so important in starting your own business) in such a positive way! I feel re-energised, motivated and so much more confident in where I am going and what business I want to start. This book literally takes you on a journey from police Officer to entrepreneur, from showing you what an amazing skill-set you have as a police officer, to building up your self-belief through helping you discover your passions and ideas you didn’t realise you had, to implementing them and eventually building your ideal business.
If you can relate to anything I have said and you want to get your life back, then this book is definitely for you! Trust me when I say you’re not alone. Good luck on your journey! 😊
I couldn't put my kindle down from the moment I began reading. I'm the first to admit I have a limited attention span of around 10 minutes ... But this book captured me and on the first sitting I clocked up a 2 and a half hours. This has continued through out the book. I am currently running a part time some trader job which I have fumbled along for nearly 2 years. After attending my son's year 10 options evening. One of them was a talk related to business studies. I realised I have no structre, vision or goals regarding my company. And as we know nothing changes if we don't. This book has fettled the dusty shelves of my imagination starting from the foundation upwards. Appointment booked with the bank..... I am currently full time officer and working part time on my fortune lol. Thank you to Alex and his Team. P.s. This is also is suitable for anyone toying with idea of starting a business.
After seeing Alex’s book mentioned by a number of serving officers, including officers in the US, I decided to bite the bullet and buy it after toying with the idea of starting my own business.
This book is a must buy if you already have a business idea and are looking to leave the job or even if you don’t yet have an idea! Alex clearly sets out creating business ideas, branding and product development in driving your business forward all whilst delivering it in a motivating way.
This book will undoubtedly change your mindset in how you approach life and building a business in order to enjoy life away from the job.
Should be mandatory reading for everyone. I found the book well written and succinct. It clearly sets out areas you need to consider when starting your own business. Buy it! It’s worth the money and you won’t regret your decision
I really like the angle of this book helping professionals in one career area make the step to another new mindset and way of thinking. Having been in the Police and also an entrepreneur myself I like the way Alex describes how the step can be made in a way that is be easily understood. I haven't seen a resource like this for public sector workers before and think Alex has created a very useful resource for Police officers who come the end of their 25 years and are looking at options for the next step.
