From the Inside Flap
Author Michael Gordon is an incurable entrepreneur who has founded five successful companies and teaches entrepreneurship at top business schools. He knows what it takes to start, run, and grow a business from the bottom up; and he knows that anyone with the drive and passion to succeed can learn the art of entrepreneurship. Now he shares his lifetime of wisdom in a single volume that covers all the bases. Trump University Entrepreneurship 101 combines the talent and wisdom of a successful entrepreneur with the business wisdom of Trump to produce a one-of-a-kind guide to entrepreneurial success.
Gordon makes it simple, explaining how a successful business is really nothing more than a money machine. You put an opportunity or idea into the top of the machine, you mix the idea up with customer value and hard work, and out comes money. There's no college degree you can get that will make you a great entrepreneur. But if you have the dedication and determination, this essential resource will show you how to build a money machine that produces sustainable long-term profit.
This book is a must for anyone who dreams of founding and owning their own business. In addition to demystifying the entrepreneurial process, it teaches you how to mobilize resources, develop a workable strategy, write a brief and effective business plan, raise money, negotiate with investors, and launch your business.
Ideal as a stand-alone primer on entrepreneurship or as a companion text for MBA classes, Trump University Entrepreneurship 101 provides everything you need to get your business up and running. If you've got the entrepreneurial itch, this book gives you the courage and confidence to take action.
