Overview

Every entrepreneur needs a mentor...

If you want to build your own business, there's no better way to improve your chance of success than by following the proven advice of someone who has already walked the same path. Some lessons you have to learn the hard way, but there's no reason you can't avoid the big miscalculations that can doom your business from the start.

In Simply Success, Jack Miller, founder and former CEO of the Quill Corporation, shares his insights and advice on what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur and how you can avoid costly missteps along the way. Short of your own, full-time business mentor, this is as close as you can get to watching a real entrepreneur make growth and success a daily reality. There's no substitute for experience—Simply Success is the next best thing.
