"With The Power of Failure, Fran Tarkenton creates a motivating paradigm for entrepreneurs by showing that 'fail fast, fail cheap, succeed faster' is a mind-set as well as a practical and necessary approach to business. Fran was a great friend to our founder, Harland Stonecipher, and continues to be an invaluable partner to LegalShield, and someone to whom I turn for inspiration and counsel."
--JEFF BELL, CEO of LegalShield
--SCOTT MILLER, CEO of Core Strategy Group "Fran's generosity and fierce commitment to learning shine through on every page of his latest book. Few entrepreneurs would ever dream of being so forthcoming with their struggles and failures, but Fran embraces every lick he's ever taken, both on the field and off, as opportunities to learn and grow. That generosity coupled with his no-nonsense storytelling are why this book will have such a positive impact on your personal and professional life."
--BOLAND T. JONES, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of PGi "Fran Tarkenton made a remarkable transition from Hall of Fame quarterback to successful entrepreneur. In this engrossing book, he shares his football and business experience to make a compelling case that losing is the key to winning. I dare you not to stand up and cheer while reading it."
--ADAM GRANT, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take "In his new book Fran Tarkenton brings to life the fact that failure is an immensely powerful fact of life and business. Fran is an exceptional mentor, business partner, and friend, and as I read this book I found his personal stories and candor around his struggles and failures deeply inspiring--I have no doubt they will hit home for every entrepreneur, business owner, and executive in personal and meaningful ways. Read this book and join the failure revolution--let the F-word set you free!"
--MICHAEL J. PIRES, Founder and Former CEO, HR411.com, and DVP, Business Development at ADP, LLC "As a self-made founder, CEO, and entrepreneur with over thirty years in business and seven hundred franchises worldwide, I can honestly say that Fran offers sage advice in an open, honest, and very genuine way. Fran's insight and recommendations transcend traditional con- cepts and offer real-world solutions for leadership, managing and embracing change, and building a lasting business enterprise. Failures in life and business can often times take a long time to see coming. Fran's ability to relate to his days on the field--where every successful play sets the team up one step closer to their goal of scoring and ultimately winning--is a valuable lesson in itself. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is building or grow- ing a business or who just wants to set themselves on a course to self-improvement and enrichment."
--STEVEN GREENBAUM, CEO and Founder, PostNet International Franchise Corporation "The very first time I met Fran, he exemplified one of the key les- sons that I have learned in my business and personal life. A true leader focuses on making others better as a result of what they do--no more, no less. In that context, there really is very little difference between Fran as a Hall of Fame quarterback and Fran as a successful entrepreneur and teacher. In telling his story, he gives us all the permission we often need to take the failures we all frequently face and build on them--with a generousness of spirit and innate desire to learn that is always refreshing."
--MALCOLM MCROBERTS, Senior Vice President, Small Business Services, Deluxe Corporation "It is a widely held belief that doctors know hardly anything about the world of business. There is probably a fair amount of truth to that, but thankfully we are good learners as well. The man I have turned to for education over the years is Fran Tarkenton. Besides having enviable energy at seventy-five years old, he is a world-class explainer and teacher. In his latest book, he takes on the age-old concept of failure, and puts a muscular new spin on it. Surely we all know real success hardly ever comes without real failure--but hearing the narrative from one of the greatest professional quarterbacks to play the game gives it a level of clarity and significance. I have had the good fortune of being able to call on Fran Tarkenton and benefit from his experience, judgment, and powerful wisdom. Now that wisdom is available to everyone by simply turning the page."
--SANJAY GUPTA, Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery, Emory University, and CNN Chief Medical Correspondent
