I recently completed a 80,000 word book titled All In: 101 Real Life Business Lessons for Emerging Entrepreneurs.
I am a CEO & Entrepreneur and the book will be available for pre-order on March 15 with a publication date of June 15th.. I am going to accept a number of speaking engagements about the book.. Ranging from causal 15 min speeches to 40 min comprehensive over view of the book the university students. The writer will need to read the book (about 4 hours if straight through) and create a brief presentation as well as a comprehensive with a power point. The book is light, numerous so the speech needs to be the same.
All In: 101 REAL LIFE BUSINESS LESSONS FOR EMERGING ENTREPRENEURS
You have the Big Idea. You have the drive and ambition. You see the market. You’ve identified the customers. You know there’s a niche for your start-up business. But you don’t know where to start . . .
Enter William “Bill” Green, the ultimate start-up entrepreneur. In All In: 101 REAL LIFE BUSINESS LESSONS FOR EMERGING ENTREPRENEURS, Bill uses his own impressive business achievements (and his few fiascos) to provide the reader with the practical tools needed to launch that Big Idea. In his own unique, humorous, and impassioned style, Bill shares 101 key insights he has gleaned over a 40-year business career that began with a flea market table for plumbing supplies. He explains, step by step, what it took to leverage his flea market sales into a small hardware store, and then morph that store into Wilmar Industries, a $630 million distribution empire with 2,300 employees. Today, numerous Wilmar offshoots continue to thrive as multibillion-dollar spinoffs in real estate and finance, and all still bear Bill’s fingerprints.
Bill’s goal in All In is to inspire entrepreneurs of all ages to take up the challenge of a small business with passion and joy. He leads his readers, using his own life experiences as examples, through all the steps necessary to transform that Big Idea into a successful and fulfilling small business—and beyond. He emphasizes how business advances seldom happen when entrepreneurs stick with the same unchanging business plan, and especially when that business plan is the same as that used by their competitors. He shows his readers the importance of remaining cognizant of shifts and trends in the business world, guiding them to look outward, beyond their specific business area, to catch those advances that can push their business well beyond its competitors. He also discusses the personal sacrifices that arise when starting up a business, and he provides insights for soldiering through even these.
The book’s message is universal and applicable to any start-up. Bill reveals his business secrets in a witty, honest, and clearly heartfelt manner that makes All In: 101 REAL LIFE BUSINESS LESSONS FOR EMERGING ENTREPRENEURS a captivating and truly entertaining read. It’s the ideal road map for anyone thinking of starting up a business—and it’s a delightful, fast-paced page-turner for anyone else who might wonder how the Bill Greens of the business world do what they do so well.
