About the Book

Make achieving your goals and finding success possible with this one-of-a-kind guide by Robert Irvine, popular host of Food Network’s Restaurant: Impossible.  

Robert Irvine knows a thing or two about business. For over 200 episodes of Food Network’s hit show Restaurant: Impossible, he’s helped failing entrepreneurs make the necessary changes to reverse course and transform their businesses from the brink of collapse to sustainable enterprises. And he doesn’t just talk a good game; Irvine is a successful entrepreneur himself with a family of companies to his credit, from frozen foods and liquor to protein bars, restaurants, a traveling live show, and a namesake foundation that gives back to America’s veterans and first responders.

Now Irvine is sharing the success secrets he has learned along the way so he can help others thrive. As he says in the book: “I’ve always wanted to write this book, and now I finally have enough hindsight to analyze the moves that transformed me from an aspiring entrepreneur to a successful one.” In this book, you will:

  • Learn how to stop micromanaging.
  • Understand what really motivates you, how to be accountable, and how to manage ego.
  • Foster the traits of authenticity and trust into your culture.
  • Change your mindset around technology and social media.

'Robert Irvine is not only a master chef, he's a master at business as well. In his new book Overcoming Impossible, he shares many valuable lessons and his vast experience in not just building his own companies, but in rescuing struggling restaurants for over 20 seasons of his hit show Restaurant: Impossible. Readers who take this book to heart and work to apply its lessons will wipe the word 'impossible' from their vocabularies and will be ready to accomplish magnificent deeds in their lives and careers.'
