How to Make a Million Before Lunch – Entrepreneur Show

Performances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (to give it its proper title) are usually associated with up and coming Beckett wannabes, soul searching thespians and struggling comedians however this year’s festival is currently playing host to an interesting combination between stage and SME.

rachel_bridgeRachel Bridge (pictured right), Sunday Times business journalist has brought her very own one woman show, entitled How to Make a Million Before Lunch, to Edinburgh this year in order to give budding entrepreneurs a quick tour through the ins and outs as well as the do’s and don’ts of starting their own business.

In an article in last week’s Sunday Times, Bridge explained her reason for doing the show, “Everyone wants to be an entrepreneur these days, thanks to shows such as Dragons’ Den, and the one thing I do know a lot about is entrepreneurs [...] what people really wanted to know was how successful entrepreneurs such as Simon Cowell and Peter Jones had managed to make it work, and how they themselves could make a fortune – ideally in the shortest possible time. I could tell them some short cuts so they didn’t get bogged down in the time-wasting stuff.”

If you’re in Edinburgh this week, you can catch Bridge at Pleasance Courtyard at 12.30 pm daily until Sunday, August 29th. If you won’t make it all the way up there, you can also get your hands on Bridge’s new book also entitled “How to Make a Million Before Lunch” from Virgin Books available on For more information on Rachel Bridge, visit her personal website:
