My Junoon is to support and empower young women who are unfortunate victims of trauma, addiction, and abuse."--Michael Bosworth, bestselling author of Solution Selling and coauthor of Customer Centric Selling.
"Driven introduces a fascinating new concept of motivation. My own Junoon hit when I was overcome with the need to develop a resource to help small companies win big contracts. The result? and thousands of successful entrepreneurs."--Jill Konrath, bestselling author of Selling to Big Companies and SNAP Selling.
"My Junoon is to help the world understand that there is no reality, there are only perceptions. If we are to fix large-scale global problems, we need to use marketing principles to deal with these perceptions."--Al Ries, author or coauthor of eleven bestselling marketing books.
"It is rare when you find a formula to bridge the business and academic worlds. Razi Imam's Driven accomplishes the task. This is a love story. The love of and application of positive obsession. The love of the hunt for and continued pursuit of success. I have known Razi for years, and he is a living example of Driven. He is a gifted communicator who will have a lifelong impact on you."--Peter J.

Each of us has the potential to achieve greatness. Throughout history, the most successful thinkers, creators, and leaders have distinguished themselves by their ability to access this inner energy and use it to accomplish the impossible. So how do you tap into your potential and make your dream a reality?
Driven introduces you to Junoon--an ancient Arabic/Persian expression referring to a very powerful state of achievement--the essence of entrepreneur Razi Imam's unique motivational philosophy. Imam started from the dusty streets of Kuwait, laboring on container ships at the Kuwaiti port, finding the opportunity to study math and physics on his own, and finally becoming a computer scientist and successful entrepreneur in America.
In Driven, Imam shares the five key elements of his approach, illustrates how they were instrumental in his own business success, and shows how you can make them instrumental in yours.
What do you want to do? Start a Fortune 500 company? Invent a product or service? Get to the next level in your career? Eradicate hunger? Whether your goal is large or small, Driven gives you the proven tools to find your inspiration and carry it out beyond what you ever thought possible. --Book Jacket.
