Welcome to the home of the ‘barefoot entrepreneur’

Robert Ashton helps individuals, organisations and communities achieve greater, positive social impact through achieving economic self-sufficiency.

 

The Barefoot Entrepreneur

In 1903 Bertrand Russell wrote that: 'All progress depends on the unreasonable man.' Yet we have an education system that measures all young people against the same performance criteria. The tension this creates in young minds is illustrated by the growing incidence of self-harm and other manifestations of poor mental health.
 

People hire Robert to solve what academics call ‘wicked problems’. These are often complicated conundrums where conventional solutions won’t work. Whilst the problem might present as something simple, for example a need to grow income, Robert’s solution will often include introducing things that may not yet be understood, yet alone considered.

Ground breaking & fun training days: 

'Sales for Non-Sales People'

I’ve put together a one day sales course based on the book. It’s practical, interactive and above all else fun. Personally, I really hate those sessions where someone talks at you for ages. This, as people are finding out, is very different!
