I have so many people to thank for this book that I have made a list. (If for some stupid reason I have left you off, you know me well enough to know that it’s my carelessness not my lack of appreciation which is the cause… feel free )
Karen Liubinskas – my wonderful wife who has put up with over 14 months of this shenanigans. Plus she read it.
Lucy and Grace – for being an inspiration for me to write it and always supportive.
Sam my son – for being the first person under 20 to read it fully and give me good feedback.
Caty Germon – full proofreading and marketing support.

Mick Liubinskas is a loving dad of two girls and a boy and married to a wonderfully supportive (and patient) woman.
Mick is a high energy, technology entrepreneur, investor, author, speaker and industry leader.
He is a big believer that the world will be a happier, better place when we have fairness across gender, race, and culture. He has interviewed more than fifty women in robotics, technology, science, engineering, and maths to share their stories and inspire young girls.
He is passionate about what individuals can do day in day out to get the planet to sustainability and avoid catastrophic climate change. He doesn’t like take away coffee cups.
He programmed his Commodore 64 at age 8, sold computer networks at age 17, raised capital at 22, and ran marketing globally for Kazaa at 26.
He has co-founded 4 technology startup companies, including three years in San Francisco. This has included evaluating 1,000’s of ideas, building first products, getting first customers, launching globally, raising capital, closing businesses, selling businesses, and all the emotional rollercoaster rides in between.
Mick is known as Mr Focus due to his strong drive for starting small and fast, doing fast testing on the road to success and avoiding the entrepreneurial distractions. He co-authored a workbook called Startup Focus which sold 5,000 copies.
For fun he loves surfing, playing football (the round ball variety), and singing bad karaoke.
