Once a New York City cop, John McCormack made his first million on Wall Street in his twenties, and lost it before he was thirty. He went to work for—and learned from—savvy businessmen who had made it from the ground up. Blending their wisdom with his own entrepreneurial gifts, McCormack made a stunningly successful comeback. Here he shares his inspiring story as well as the lessons he's learned about motivation, setting goals, and how creative companies can bring the American dream to those born without a silver spoon.

From Library Journal:

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.
