Following the successful launch of his new book, Against the grain, How I went from factory floor to my own multimillion pound company, (and you could too), Graham Harris, Tech-ni-Fold Managing Director announces his delight after becoming an Amazon Best seller. The accolade came about following a book promotion Harris ran throughout the print industry, resulting in hundreds of sales, all of which elevated Harris's book from almost obscurity.
Harris explained, "It's difficult for new authors to get noticed in an overcrowded and competitive market, no matter what potential their book may offer, and for me it was no different. I decided to promote my book to our own customers and industry contacts we know, and they supported me without hesitation, not only that, the feedback has been excellent - most loved reading my story of how I brought my own invention (the Tri-Creaser) to market. Our loyal customers and the print industry as a whole have given me a platform to go outside of print, into areas I can help inspire other people too, and I am indebted to them."
Harris added that he wants to give something back and would like to dedicate some of his time to helping would-be inventors, business people and entrepreneurs who might need some motivation, and tips on how to emulate his own success. There have been some interest from Universities who seek speakers and study materials for their libraries, Harris concluded, "It would be pretty cool to mentor students and in some small way try and influence how they might think about the fields of invention and innovation."
