You want to be your own boss, but how do you make the right decision and make it happen?
The world of work is unrecognizable from when you started your career. It’s full of uncertainty, but it’s also full of opportunities.
Never has it been easier to start a business and make an impact in the world.
Taking inspiration from project management techniques, Rob Kerr shows you how to test your ideas, get clarity, and launch a successful independent career. You’ll discover:

  • THE S.O.R.T.E.D. FRAMEWORK – to get your mindset right.
  • THE I.N.P.U.T.S. FRAMEWORK – to critically analyse your business proposal.
  • THE 6-STEP F.U.T.U.R.E. METHOD – to develop and deliver your plan.

Rob Kerr had a number of false starts in his own career before finding his path. A project manager for over a decade, he set up his first business in 2014 and has since found satisfaction and balance. Now he shares his approach with aspiring entrepreneurs, contractors, and freelancers, supporting them through these critical decisions and showing them how to flourish on their own unique journey.

If you are looking to start a business and need a plan which is well structured, here it is. That is a real project plan with a step by step implementation from the stage of ideation to the stage of execution. I haven’t seen such a detailed guide before and, having the experience of all the described stages, can definitely confirm that the book is very useful!

I enjoyed this book because it helped me formulate a plan of action for starting my business. The framework and steps provided are very useful in helping you extract your business idea from your head and understand what actions you need to take to bring it to fruition. I think to get the most out of this you need to revisit the book as your idea and business develops. I plan on re-reading chapters as and when needed to ensure I am checking all the right boxes as I go along.


Project Future has been invaluable to me in launching my new business. The step by step approach enabled me to make sure I had not missed anything important, as well as provide structure to the process which at times is confusing.

In particular I valued the actions, as this made the process very real and stopped me tripping myself up had I gone full steam ahead. Whilst I have now launched my business I continue to dip into it and re-read sections to sense check my thinking.
