Expelled From The Classroom To Billionaire Boardroom

by Joseph Valente

This eagerly anticipated autobiography and business book chronicles Joseph’s journey from his troubled early years, to being expelled from school at age 15, to winning BBC’s The Apprentice, and finally partnering with and splitting from Lord Sugar, TV’s most famous billionaire.

This surprising tale will inspire, motivate and give readers the intelligence they’ll need to create their own professional triumphs.

“My Mum had pretty much given up on me by this time, and the police were starting to take a slight interest in me thanks to my…rebellious behaviour. I was not in a good place.”

I was only five months into this new two year course, and for whatever reasons, I was now approaching a fifth employment placement as an apprentice.”

“It felt like someone had flicked on a light switch inside of me. I’d always known I wanted to be a businessman, but until now, I’d had no idea how to seriously go about it.”

“It’s fair to say that during that Boardroom, Lord Sugar absolutely flew at me in anger.”

In putting together this true adventure of a book, Joseph worked intensively during the period between his high profile split from Lord Alan Sugar as his business partner in Spring 2017, and the following Autumn’s airing of the 13th series of The Apprentice on BBC 1 – the show where ‘Mr Joseph Valente’ first became a household name.  In reading his book, you are about to find out that Joseph’s pathway to get where he is today has by no means been easy, and you will definitely discover how there is so much more to his journey than the title may suggest.
