Decimus Ten essential life skills of successful entrepreneurs

Author Name: Rakhi Kapoor | Format: Paperback | Genre : Self-Help | Other Details

Every entrepreneur strives to convert an idea into a profitable business venture. They take risks and face many challenges in life, hoping to find success. 

This book is inspired by the life of Vijay Kapoor, a first-generation entrepreneur and founder of the brand Derby Men’s Wear, an apparel brand, headquartered out of Chennai, India. He is popularly known by the title The Horseshoe Man, which is a short biography of his life. The book The Horseshoe Man was an Amazon.in bestseller in the sales category.



I had the opportunity to work very closely with Vijay and team Derby over the last 15 months. Derby is an iconic brand, very dear to most men residing in Chennai in the mid-90s and thereon.

My two cents on the book—“Easy read and very honest, yet very powerful and engaging.” A must-read for an aspiring entrepreneur and a business leader. Totally relatable and good life lessons.
