Best-selling author, businessman and Senator Feargal Quinn firmly believes every business has the potential to survive and even thrive during a recession. In Mind Your Own Business, he uses real-life examples from the first two series of RTÉ television's hit programme, Feargal Quinn's Retail Therapy, as well as valuable experiences gained in his fifty-year career in business, to explain exactly how to do it.

From the importance of setting the right tone in your business, to placing innovation at the heart of everything you do, responding to your customers' needs and planning for succession in a family-run business, he challenges many of the bad habits that can build up in businesses over the years.

Throughout the book, he also provides a range of simple, easy-to-implement steps that owners and managers can take to chart their way out of trouble and achieve success even in challenging times.

Feargal Quinn founded Superquinn, the Irish supermarket group, in 1960 and was its Managing Director for many years during which it built an international reputation for excellence in customer service. His bestselling book Crowning the Customer (O’Brien Press) is used by multi-national companies as the essential customer care manual. It has been translated into several languages.

Feargal Quinn is a board member of a number of international retailing organisations, and has received two honorary doctorates. In 1993 he was elected to the Irish Senate as an independent member. Feargal's television series "Feargal Quinn's Retail Therapy" has seen many small business turned around in recessionary times.
