About the Author

This is where most business authors rant and rave about their experience and education, using both as credentials to justify their credibility. But there's also a downside to that. If the author's background is in an industry or profession that is significantly different from that of the reader, the book's content may not receive the attention it deserves. It's a fine line, and I've seen it go both ways. Let's do this . . .

For right now, I can tell you that as a young man, I earned degrees in engineering and business, believing if I followed the traditional route of getting an advanced education, found the right company to work for, and dedicated myself to career advancement, I'd be secure, comfortable and yes, even happy. But after spending fourteen years in the corporate world, I found myself miserably successful. The reasons were simple. I wanted my own business. I wanted to be my own boss. So in August of 1987, I cut the corporate umbilical to become a full-time entrepreneur. Since then, I've worked as a business consultant as well as starting several businesses from scratch, building them into successful income-producing companies and selling them for a profit.

I believe the most important thing I can tell you is that I work for a living. I make my livelihood from my daily business activities. I'm not a professional speaker, writer, or seminar presenter, although I've done all three. My living--my financial independence--comes from serving customers, battling the competition, motivating employees, and constantly striving to do it all in a better way.

I wish you much success on your journey.
