Editorial Reviews

Review

"I was blue collar: child labor on a farm, oiler on heavy equipment, aircraft mechanic with the Marines, dozen operator and chief mechanic to repair the Hubble Space Telescope in orbit.  Today, Mark Stoner gets me going and he will get you going in your business too.  He'll help you figure it out and get it launched - and not only blue collar but any business!"

"A must read for anyone looking to start their own business. Blue Collar Gold challenges the stigma of service businesses, and encourages Americans to think bigger when it comes to the mindset of making money. This book is filled with personal stories and strong takeaways. Stoner inspires readers to become leaders, and open their eyes in order to build their best business from the dirt up!"
