Review

Making Bold Moves: Creating Multimillion Dollar Success in 500 Days or Less is truly an amazing read and fantastic story of how serial entrepreneur William S. Parrish, Jr. built a recognizable and credible construction management firm in the NYC market only 500 days after quitting his full-time job. The story is a well crafted lessons learned plan that engulfs the reader as we travel along Bill's personal path to building a multimillion enterprise from nothing at all. Bill shares the very intimate details, struggles and challenges of what was required to earn revenues of $2.2 million in a single year, for his emerging firm during the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of 1931. Making Bold Moves comes across as an inspiring story of triumph that suggests that any entrepreneur can replicate Bill's success or even create and achieve their own version of success, by following the tools and concepts introduced in the book. If that wasn't enough, it should be noted that Black Enterprise, Editor-in-Chief, Derek T. Dingle pens a dynamic foreword about the difficulties facing many emerging businesses in the current economy. Mr. Dingle offers perspective on how Bill Parrish's story serves as a timely and inspiring message that can provide solutions for entrepreneurs plagued with traditional market challenges. The story opens with a prelude to the tragic market conditions that really did not seem to favor new businesses but speaks of the passion and nerve required to make bold moves even in the most uncertain times. Bill quickly offers a glimpse of the less than ideal conditions he was faced with that gave him the fuel to strike out on his own and the commitment and drive he adopted to support the pursuit of his dreams. Making Bold Moves is flush with real time examples of how the featured concepts worked for Bill and serve as a template for teaching a new generation of professionals. This book will surely assist new entrepreneurs, existing business owners and corporate professionals with connecting their skills to the qualities that matter most in translating value in a new age economy. Making Bold Moves is a refreshing tome of how hard work, good planning, personal sacrifice and a strong faith can convert dreams into reality, and immediately create your own version of success. If you love to root for the hero of a good story, Making Bold Moves provides a personal perspective for who Bill Parrish is and what he has done, that makes it very easy for us to root for him. Bill Parrish wants to win and we want him to win too!!! --Black Villages Magazine- February 2012

I read this book because I had already decided to make the "bold move" of leaving the mainstream to pursue the path of entrepreneurship. Perhaps the best part of this book is that Parrish hasn't quite achieved the level of success to which he aspires, yet he still offers a wealth of helpful information that anyone on a similar path would benefit from.

Parrish doesn't teach you how to be an entrepreneur, rather he highlights many of the considerations (financial and temporal) that one needs to be aware of once the seed has been planted to move towards a goal that many may consider risky or bold.

I would especially recommend this book to any female/minority business owner, as Parrish provides the ins and outs of getting the requisite certifications needed to be successful when contracting with the government and even private companies looking to support diversity .

I plan on keeping this book as a reference guide for years to come.

Despite the recent economic recession, William Parrish managed to turn his start-up company, NobleStrategy, into a multimillion-dollar construction management firm. He did so, in part, by securing government contracts to take advantage of the rapidly-growing green industry.

If you want to follow in Mr. Parrish's footsteps you might want to follow the lesson plan he outlines in Making Bold Moves, a combination how-to handbook and personal memoir designed with the self-starter in mind. He advises the reader to "research, cross-train and become certified in emerging technologies," out of a conviction that the Sustainability Revolution will have as great an impact on reshaping the way we live and conduct business as the Industrial Revolution had on society back in the 18th and 19th Centuries.

I recently received my MBA and as I being to start my career I am looking for any way that can set me apart from the competition and make sure I am noticed by the right people in oder to move up the corporate ladder and break through the glass celling. Mr. Parrish's book has been an excellent resource and I find my self referring to chapters and the resources in the back of the book the closer I get to starting my career to make sure I make the best first impression possible. This book is not only easy to read, it's easy to relate to with real life examples to help with the application of the lessons learned in you own life. If you are ready to make a positive change and are willing to make moves boldly, this is the book for you!

This book is relatable in a sense that I was able to correlate most of the information in the book to the personal development. I enjoyed all the concepts and theories from the seeds you harvest to the practice you have to endure to become great. It is an easy read and absorbent book to have in ones library. Recommended to students, Entrepreneurs, and anyone looking to advance themselves in any aspect of life. Great Book!

I am in the business planning stage for my business so I set out to read books that address the beginning stage of entrepreneurship. This is an excellent book and resource for my needs. The author provoked thought and ideas that are helping shape my business plan. My industry is quite different than the author's but the principles are that same. I enjoyed all the chapters but the most memorable for me address: taking risks, community service, practicing, and mentorship. I am very pleased that I read this book and its impact exceeded my expectations.
