As you read this, you might be stuck in an office cubicle, pushing papers around with the aim of making a wealthy person even wealthier. Or perhaps you’re in your kitchen, bored with life as a homemaker, and longing to start a business of your own. Maybe you’ve been itching to quit your 9-5, and head to the beaches of Bali where you can spend your days finally writing that book you’ve been meaning to get around to. Maybe you just have an idea or a dream. Maybe you are simply frustrated with your life and want more.
If you spend every day feeling hemmed in, like your work is inhibiting your creative expression and chipping away at your passion, now is the time to act. Whether you’ve been thinking of starting your own food truck, or you’ve been sitting on a billion dollar idea for an internet company, this series is for you.
The late Steve Jobs claimed that he looked into the mirror every day and asked himself “Am I doing what I want to be doing? And if not, why not?”. At the time of his death, he had a net worth of $8.3 billion, but Jobs never chased money for the sake of money – he pursued his passion. A rebel entrepreneur will look in the mirror and ask the same question. If they truly value their life, they’ll pursue their passion.
The following is a series of lessons, short stories and life-hacks from rebel entrepreneurs. These lessons and life hacks have a thorough grounding in scientific research and the very latest in psychology and business studies. This research backs up the stories and life hacks of rebel entrepreneurs that took the plunge for freedom. Now, they work when they want, where they want and how they want. Business is done entirely on their own terms. They make money work for them, and not the other way around.
Chrisjan Peters once said: “Your salary is the bribe they give you to forget your dreams.” Remember this. The clutches of corporate life will hold a rebel entrepreneur captive, but taking a risk will set them free.
John Moore is a serial entrepreneur who has built several multimillion dollar businesses. Moore has become known as a “rebel entrepreneur” because of his unique style in building his businesses. 3D4Medical, which Moore built from scratch on a shoestring budget, has single handedly revolutionised how anatomy is studied throughout the world through disruptive proprietary 3D technology.

In November, 2019, Moore sold 3D4Medical to Elsevier for $50.6 million.
