From the Publisher

Becoming a successful entrepreneur takes energy and drive. Less than 20 percent make it beyond the first three years. Achieving the next level, the status of business titan - the upper echelon of leadership - takes an unrelenting commitment to turn an idea into a plan, a plan into a startup venture, and a venture into a successful business. The chances of getting to the top are slim at best, relying on a particular set of skills and attributes. In The Wisdom of Titans, William Ferguson shares how 10 famous titans, from Bill Marriott to Julia Stewart, made it to the top, for every entrepreneur to learn from and follow. The audiobook describes the challenges of leading service organizations, in particular, where managing and motivating thousands of people can make or break the business. The audiobook provides advice for those just starting out as well as business leaders looking to take their enterprise to the next level.

One day he conked out at 5 p.m. This prompted his wife to suggest that he shed some entrepreneurial hats. In the crystallizing absence of digital distractions, he realized she was right. “It was time for me to step away,” says Greenfield, whose Portsmouth, N.H.-based company uses soph

    "The moment you think you know everything about your business is the moment you lose your competitive edge," says Pat Flynn, a San Diego-based writer who focuses on online entrepreneurship. "Top athletes continue to train and learn in order to improve; a smart entrepreneur does the same." I know you know that intuitively, but it can be hard to convince yourself that adding to your education is worth the time and money. Often the hang-up is seeing how those new skills can pay off in an existing business--and that's where I believe many small-business owners miss the mark. Learning a new skill c
