Black Belt: A Masterclass for Start-Ups and Entrepreneurs
By Joseph Healy and David Hornery
Major Street, $32.99
This book tells the story of finance industry veterans Joseph and David who successfully disrupted the banking industry - in an environment dominated by the big four - by launching Judo Bank in 2016. It was Australia's first commercially listed bank in 40 years.
The name is a nod to the fact that in judo the smaller, weaker person can overpower a stronger opponent through the efficient use of energy.
The authors share key lessons - and the real-life challenges they faced - from the Judo journey and their decades in business before their start-up success against all odds.
