Overview

The Art of War, written by Sun Tzu, is revered throughout the world as a book of profound wisdom that can be applied to business.

But other ancient Chinese scholars also shared critical knowledge for businesspeople, including Fan Li, a strategist turned entrepreneur also known as Tao Zhu Gong, who achieved great wealth before writing a treatise on business and enterprise.

His twelve principles of business continue to be relevant, and you'll learn them in this book, along with tips from other ancient Chinese scholars, such as Bai Gui, who founded the first business school in China.

Bai Gui outlined four characteristics of successful entrepreneurs and emphasized that businesspeople could be compassionate and moral while achieving great wealth. In his teachings, he explained that strength does not mean power or skill; he used the word to represent the fortitude in self-discipline.

Filled with inspirational quotes and easy-to-follow examples, this book includes business lessons from modern businesspeople that achieved fortune or suffered disaster as a result of following-or not following-ancient Chinese wisdom.

Kick your career into a higher gear and enhance business operations with The Business Wisdom of Ancient Chinese Entrepreneurs.
