McCormack, called "the hottest entrepreneur in America" by Inc. magazine, examines the components of success and how individuals can go about achieving it. He tells of his own experiences from working as a New York City policeman to becoming a Wall Street trader and entrepreneur. After a major financial loss on Wall Street when he was 25, McCormack received invaluable counsel from a mentor. This teacher and other entrepreneurs who advised McCormack were immigrants who through their intelligence, ingenuity, and diligence had achieved success. Subsequently, McCormack and his wife established Visible Changes, a chain of hair salons. Among his suggestions for success are to pursue an ambition that you really want to pursue; look inward and not outward for support and encouragement; and focus on the present and future. This practical and inspirational book is highly recommended.

I happen to be a teacher. This book addresses the problems with our educational process, which have gotten even more problematic over the many years since it was published. To this day, the author is on target regarding this topic.
I'm starting over with this book. Step by step I will implement many of the strategies into my own businesses. I'm so excited to see my results.
I actually paid my kids to read this one, it was that good.
