Live, Love, Work, Prosper
A fresh approach to integrating life and work
A provocative, life-affirming manifesto, which reimagines the work-life balance and inspires us all to bravely embrace the new life-love-work continuum.

Charismatic, philanthropic and multi-award-winning entrepreneur Michael Tobin has led an inspirational life ­- from growing up in poverty in East London, moving to conflict-ridden Rhodesia to taking TelecityGroup from near bankruptcy to a billion-dollar company in under a decade - and in Live, Love, Work, Prosper he shares the invaluable experience he's gained from his 'life-affirming rags-to-riches tale'.

In Live, Love, Work, Prosper Michael draws on his personal and professional experience to challenge the received wisdom that there needs to be, or even can be, a divide or a 'balance' between work and life. This is truer than ever, given dizzyingly rapid rates of change in technology, business models and family fragmentation. He re-evaluates how ­- now and into the future - we can be liberated by an integrated approach to success at work that's more in tune with a satisfying and fulfilling personal life.

Through anecdote, personal examples and clear thinking, Michael Tobin shows us that drawing on the combined strengths of life, love and work creates a powerful new way of living. The result is a provocative, thoughtful manifesto which aims to alter forever the old school thinking of work-life balance and replace it with a far braver new world of work-life integration. Live, Love, Work, Prosper might just save your relationship, your career and your sanity.

When it comes to using technology, do you control it, or does it control you? This book addresses the challenge every executive faces most days - how to balance family and business with the ever-increasing demands of a 24/7 technology-driven society. You may not agree with everything that Michael Tobin recommends. In fact, you may even disagree with much of it, but this book will certainly make you stop and think about how you currently deal with these challenges and how you can control and benefit from technological innovation in all aspects of your life.
