"learn to be a buoyant leader"
Each of us pitches ideas every day. Sometimes we sell our ideas to a small room full of skeptical colleagues. Sometimes we pitch to a boss, or a board of directors, a new organization, or for the contract of our dreams. Regardless, it all boils down to the act of stirring someone to join you - to agree to follow you. Yet we consistently underestimate how critical it is to recognize the needs, spoken and unspoken, of the decision maker. Decisions are made by people, and people have needs and agendas.
We teach you how to build and grow a business with honesty, integrity, and focus on the client, not just the paycheck. The best part of 10 Guiding Principles of the Ethical Entrepreneur: Anyone can implement these core values into any business or personal relationship and do so without any specialized training. The principles outlined in this book will show you how to start being an honest, authentic, true-to-you-and-your-clients entrepreneur if you implement and follow them daily.
