Fame-to-memoir timeline: April 2004-August 2004 (Four Months)
Remember when The Apprentice became an instant cultural phenomenon when it debuted in January 2004?
Bill Rancic, that season’s winner probably does. What might be less memorable for him are the blink-and-you-missed-it four months that passed in between his April 15 win and the August 31, 2004 publication of his book, You’re Hired: How to Succeed in Business and Life from the Winner of The Apprentice.
The quick turnaround was a good business decision for the Chicago-based entrepreneur. The book cashed in on his win and Donald Trump’s catchphrase mere months after he entered the spotlight. Rancic’s business tips and personal anecdotes charmed critics and the book became a best-seller.
