Editorial Reviews

Review

Steve Henry's business? A used-car dealership. Now if someone can sell used-cars profitably using Christian principles, the rest of us should be honor-bound to read his book and give it a try. --Book Review.com

Steve offers plenty of practical how-to's on creating a winning business. Do yourself a favor, BUY THIS BOOK. --ChipMacgregor.com - Literary Agent of the year 2009

I would strongly encourage anyone who is thinking about creating a business or struggling with a newly created one to read this book and keep it as a reference guide. --Gil Boers- Executive Director - State of New Mexico's Auto Dealers Association

This book reads like a biography but contains some real gems for people who are starting up their own small business. --EconGuru Economics Guide - By Anthony Carter

From the Author

Placing me on the correct path at age seventeen. A night that changed my life.  Chapter 3 "A Vision of Victory" 


Dear Steve,

Thank you very much for your letter and all of your kind words. I am glad that in some small way, I was able to encourage you to follow your dreams.
I wish you all the best.

Sincerely,

If you believe that you do not need to follow Jesus in order to succeed in business then this book is NOT for you.

First. the formatting for the Kindle was somewhat bad but I don't blame author. I have not yet read the entire book but I would not buy it again after seeing the first few chapters. The author comes from a religious and liberal mindset. Not that that is bad and while I can agree with him that customers and employees should be a priority, he seems to have an overabundance of faith that God will provide should business need money and he has an unfailing willingness to believe in the good in humans and places a great amount of trust in people. While it may be nice, he seems to wants to operate his business solely as a social project and almost as a nonprofit. I am not saying that is bad, just stating my observations.

With so many reviews, I thought it would be an excellant book.I will eventually get around to reading the rest but it would have been nice to have mention that he comes from a liberal point of view on business and his coming from a religious perspective and not so much as a business perspective.
