This site is one of my creative outlets. I use it to fulfill my enjoyment of reading and review of books I enjoy, health, a healthy mind, great foods, and other things that matter to me.
While I love to share what relaxes me and fulfills me in many ways, my main job is that of an instructor in a business department of a local college and a small business owner who serves other small businesses.
Because of my love of business and my 35 years of experience in business arena, I still continue to want to improve and develop my business acumen. Learning never ends. That’s why I occasionally will read, review, and share business related books that also work towards developing us personally too.
The book I am going to share with you today is a unique blend of many interests. A faith-based business motivational teaching book, written by an entrepreneurial ministering man. He has much knowledge in the business arena.
