Overview

Following the pack and doing what you are told may get you a job and even a promotion, but it won’t lead to real success.

Entrepreneur Arthur Wylie, who made his first million by 26, has conquered the worlds of finance, real estate, and entertainment with more than $50 million in deals brokered and almost half a billion in assets and transactions under management. He has several subsidiaries that have diversified into film development, consulting, venture capital, speaking engagements, celebrity events, book publishing, technology, philanthropy, and real estate ventures internationally.

In Only the Crazy and Fearless Win BIG!, he shares a little secret that few books discuss—to win big you have to be fearless and, sometimes, even a little crazy.

Wylie outlines real-world examples from some of history and present-day’s most well-known names and everyday entrepreneurs in every industry, profession, and segment of the economy. Only the Crazy and Fearless Win BIG! shows how their decisions raised eyebrows, dropped jaws, and met resistance—yet proved to be right.

A few crazy and fearless decisions that led to victory and success, to fame and respect:

• Dominate with Class: Mexican Billionaire and world’s richest man, Carlos Slim, shows how to dominate a market to empower others
• Being Fearless: CEO Steve Jobs is fired from Apple
• Passion: Sara Blakely used what she hated to become successful in an untapped market
• People Power: Henry Ford pays his workers double the industry average
• Relentless: Richard Branson pushes through obstacles and makes billions
• How Crazy: Intern-now-CEO Sean Combs's $300 Million Clothing line beats out his entertainment business

Through Wylie’s experience and guidance, he weaves together the lessons of these stories and more to share what it means to your life, wealth, career and business.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Multi-millionaire entrepreneur Wylie has set out to teach others his secrets. Mixing personal experience with other notable success stories (like those of Sean "Diddy" Combs and Henry Ford), he makes many excellent points about personal brand development, risk-taking, and the importance of an entrepreneur's willingness to make choices that run counter to conventional beliefs-they must be ready to fail, to implement their plans with precise timing, and above all, to continue to develop their passion daily to procure personal fulfillment and reap financial rewards. Despite Wylie's skill as an engaging writer, his familiar advice adds nothing new to the wealth of business related books-most of his guidance can be found proffered in a dozen other places. Readers may enjoy having some of this information all in one place, but those familiar with books on entrepreneurism can fearlessly pass on this one.
