FROM THE BOOK JACKET: No one expected a dreadlocked fifteen-year-old who cared more about his DJ business than his homework to grow up to become one of the youngest-ever White House fellows, create multiple nonprofits, and found a multibillion-dollar company. But Robert Reffkin--raised by an Israeli immigrant single mother, disowned by his maternal grandparents for being Black, and abandoned by his father--has always defied the odds.

Compasss mission is to help everyone find their place in the world, and in these pages, Reffkin distills the wisdom hes gathered along his journey. Each chapter offers a part of his life story and a practical lesson, such as:
  • Love your customers more than your ideas
  • Find someone to give you the critical feedback others won't
  • Create your own "rich-kid's network"

The advice in No One Succeeds Alone will inspire you to dream bigger than you ever have before, realize your full potential, and give back by helping make someone elses dreams come true, too. All author proceeds from No One Succeeds Alone are being donated to nonprofits that help young people realize their dreams.

Robert Reffkin | IndustryWeekAUTHOR INFO: Robert Reffkin is an entrepreneur on a mission to help everyone find their place in the world. After working in finance and starting his own nonprofit, Reffkin launched Compass, a startup building the future of real estate. He lives in New York City.
