In The One Minute Entrepreneur, Ken Blanchard (coauthor of the #1 bestselling business classic The One Minute Manager), Don Hutson (CEO of U.S. Learning), and Ethan Willis (CEO of Prosper Learning), tell the inspiring story of one man’s challenges in creating his own business. Through a powerful and engaging narrative, the authors confront many of the typical problems entrepreneurs face in starting up their business, from finding new sources of revenue to securing the commitment of their people and the loyalty of their customers. Blanchard, Hutson, and Willis also reveal the secrets to becoming a successful entrepreneur, including how to build a firm foundation, how to ensure a steady cash flow, and how to create legendary service.
Today, in the midst of the largest entrepreneurial surge in U.S. history, four out of five small businesses continue to fail. The One Minute Entrepreneur offers businesspeople and rising entrepreneurs a treasure trove of wisdom on how to think, act, and succeed in creating and sustaining a business, no matter what their industry.
In addition, the book offers invaluable advice, delivered through One Minute Insights, from such entrepreneurs and thinkers as Sheldon Bowles, Peter Drucker, Michael Gerber, and Charlie “Tremendous” Jones.
