Anyone Can Do It – Building Coffee Republic


Siblings duo Sahar and Bobby Hashemi wrote Anyone Can Do It – Building Coffee Republic. It′s about coffee beans and crazy dreams!

Sahar and Bobby Hashemi are the awe-inspiring brother and sister team. They started one of the most recognised and high-profile high street brands in the United Kingdom today – Coffee Republic.

As a result, Anyone Can Do It is an inspirational book that chronicles the start and evolution of a success story. Beginning with the siblings′ first conversations (when the seed of the idea was planted), to writing the business plan, finding a name, and raising money. To opening the first store, taking the company public, and to the present day when Coffee Republic is worth £50m with 90 outlets around the UK.

Nevertheless, the book is no mere corporate history. It is a very personal story of dreaming, acting, and succeeding. In addition, it offers a myriad of lessons for aspiring entrepreneurs and blows apart the myth that only ′special′ people start successful businesses.

Furthermore, written in an informal style and packed with tips, advice, quotes and includes a wonderful appendix (more like a scrapbook), which includes copies of original business plans, early brainstorms, and the cruel and duly ignored bank rejection letters.

As a result, showing a real insight into real people trying to make a go of their dreams. (Source: Publisher)

Besides being translated into six languages, the book debuted at number one on Amazon.co.uk’s business chart and endorsed by the DTI, The Prince’s Trust, and Institute of Directors.
