About the author, Nachum

For the last 25 years, I have made it my mission to pioneer business ideas and carry them through to their full potential.

I have patented four different pieces of technology, worked in video commerce, developed interoperable messaging, and striven for innovation throughout my career.

Realizing that the future of the economy is in freelancing, I have since turned all my attention to Book like a Boss, a cutting-edge, all-inclusive platform engineered to support entrepreneurs in more than 100 countries – and growing every day.

Born in Passaic, NJ, I now reside in Bet Shemesh, Israel, where I share my home with my loving wife and our eight children.
