“What I did was to repeat my goals a hundred times a day, for a hundred days. My goals were clear and specific: three hundred stores across the United States, and annual sales of $50 million dollars with weekly sales of $1 million dollars.”

When Jim Kim migrated to America in the late 1980s, he knew little English, and had ridiculously little capital and a degree that mainstream society didn’t recognise. He started several businesses, which all foundered. In 2005, he made an impressive comeback after the age of forty by starting the world’s first chain of grab-and-go sushi bars: SnowFox, which has become one of the largest chains of sushi bars in America.

In Grab and Go, Kim shares his secrets to achieving what he wants in life, and synthesises them into an essay collection packed with enduring lessons and practical takeaways.
