Overview

From one of the most dynamic businessmen in the country: a motivational doctrine for those who want to make their most ambitious dreams come true.

Emilio Estefan-husband to singer Gloria Estefan and founder of the Latin pop legend Miami Sound Machine-is the embodiment of the American dream. He came to the United States as a Cuban refugee and went on to become one of the most successful producers in music history and a self-made entrepreneur.

Blessed with an optimistic outlook and an unwavering confidence in himself and his intuition, Emilio succeeds on his own terms, and now, in The Rhythm of Success, he establishes the guiding principles readers will need to start and grow their own business or climb the corporate ladder. Emilio imparts the basics needed to identify values, believe in ideas and establish plans that will last for a lifetime.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In his inspirational memoir, musician, recording exec and entrepreneur Estafan takes readers through his Cuban childhood, his immigration to the U.S., and his rise from penniless migrant to the top of the music industry in short, lesson-oriented chapters including "Take Risks and Think Big," "Be Well Accompanied," and "Focus When Disaster Strikes." Throughout his anecdote-heavy account, Estefan emphasizes the importance of hard work, humility, family, and honesty, with a generous and humble charm that authenticates his hard-earned wisdom. Estafan doesn't have a negative thing to say about anyone, but still comes across as astute, savvy and entirely candid. Though Estefan maintains an inspirational tone, and his solid values (decency, ingenuity, optimism) and common sense advice ("use all the forms of learning at your disposal") are just as applicable to the workplace as any other area of life, would-be entrepreneurs looking for specific business advice will likely be disappointed.

    An American Success Story

    I just finished reading the book and it is very motivating and inspiring. As a Cuban immigrant myself I can certainly identify with Emilio and I was surprised to read about all of the obstacles he had to overcome to get to where he is today. His is truly an American success story!!!Felicidades Emilio!
