I wrote this book because building a successful enterprise while also fostering strong family ties presents unique challenges. The entrepreneur cannot measure success by financial gains alone, but must consider personal satisfaction and a well-balanced family life as well.
My new book is for all entrepreneurs - both waiting-to-be entrepreneurs contemplating the idea of striking out on their own and those already involved in running their own businesses. If you are considering the possibility of launching your own company, I offer encouragement; if you have vision and the willingness to work hard at something about which you are passionate, you too can succeed as an entrepreneur. If you have recently become an entrepreneur, this book will help you to draft a blueprint for your own career.
Throughout this account of my career, I stop on occasion to point out lessons I have learned from my experiences. You will see that they are very basic and fundamental.
This is not the first book by a successful entrepreneur that offers advice by sharing personal successes and failures, and points out lessons that can help listeners chart a course to financial and personal success. Numerous books have been written by academics and business entrepreneurs that lay out business theory, occasionally citing cases that support their approach to business management and development.
I hope you will let me show you how you, too, can become an entrepreneur, achieving success in business as well as in family life. The rewards can go far beyond the accumulation of material wealth.
