Aaltoes promo code for EXIT book.

The EXIT book contains 15 inspirational stories about Finnish entrepreneurs. With the code AALTOES you get 4€ off of the original price. (The book is in Finnish)

To buy the book 👉 https://leap.fi/exit/ 👈

“15 yrittäjää, 15 erilaista tarinaa yrityksen perustamisesta exitiin. Eri ikäiset, eri puolilta maata kotoisin olevat yrittäjät puhuvat avoimesti onnistumisistaan ja menestyksestään, mutta myös vaikeista hetkistään ja epäonnistumisistaan. Mukaansatempaavat tarinat vievät yrityskauppaneuvottelujen kulisseihin ja avaavat, miten yrittäminen ja omasta yrityksestä irtautuminen ovat vaikuttaneet henkilön muuhun elämään ja identiteettiin.”
