From the Back Cover:

What the Biker's Clients Say...

"The insight and guidance I've received from Dwain is invaluable. Within a year of Dwain offering me and my business his navigation skills, my revenue doubled. I would venture to say that my relationship with Dwain is the most significant strategic business relationship I have."
Gail Mears, Director, Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services

"Dwain's distilled guidance and methodologies provide artful navigation while teaching how to fish. He simply knows when to shake it up, shut it down, and challenge all levels of thinking, which ignites and inspires...we're a new organization because of it."
Phil Medina, CEO, KeyCom

"Dwain brings out the best in you and creates an environment that develops forward-thinking tactical plans unique to your industry."
Brett Fadeley, CEO, eSchool Solutions

"Dwain was able to successfully transition our management structure and helped to shift culture into a more productive, stable, and happy environment??? and our revenues have risen, which has proven invaluable."
Jim Cross, Managing Partner, Cross, Fernandez & Riley, LLP

"Dwain's presentation was dead-on in terms of illustrating to my students that entrepreneurship is a mind-set—a way of thinking. This is what I had been attempting to teach these students, but it is so much more powerful if they see it and get it themselves. They did see it through Dwain, in his presentation, his demeanor, and the illustrations he used to solidify the points he made in his lecture. I couldn't have asked for more in terms of creating value for my students."
William Rossi, Clinical Professor of Entrepreneurship, Associate Director,Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, University of Florida

"Dwain has been a fantastic business coach! When we started working together over two years ago, he made me set an aggressive five-year revenue goal. Two and a half years later, I beat it!"
Julie Swatek, CEO, ScrapYourTrip.com

From the Inside Flap:

What do businesspeople and entrepreneurs have in common with bikers? More than you might think. The freedom of the open road is a concrete extension of the entrepreneurial spirit?the spirit to set your own course and to succeed in your own way on your own terms.

The Biker's Guide to Business offers hard-won business wisdom specially suited for businesspeople who like to go their own way?whether out on the highways or in the corporate boardroom. Executives and white-collar professionals are the fastest growing segment of the biker population. If you're one of them, this is the business book you've been waiting for.

Riding is a great way for a busy, stressed-out executive to relax and have fun. But riding isn't just good for blowing off steam. It can also teach you a lot about success?in business and in life. Based on his own experience on the road and in business, Dwain DeVille presents powerful business lessons that lead to long-term success. He shows you how to apply your passion for riding to your work life; withstand the perils of business's open road; plan your business ride; harness the power of the pack; and find the right balance between work and fun for continued success in business.

Finally?and with equal passion for business and riding?this uncommon business book uses DeVille's proven Navigation Process to help you and your team members develop, hone, and apply the skills necessary to achieve and maintain individual and organizational excellence. If you love the thrill of riding as much as you love the rush of running a business, The Biker's Guide to Business will help you combine your passions to become the ultimate high-performance business machine.
