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.

From AudioFile:

Saying that entrepreneurial success requires steady attention to a business's finances, employees, and customers, the veteran authors and coaches know how to give common-sense advice enormous power to influence. This advice can make an individual life meaningful, as well as make a business successful. The lesson gains credibility through its consistent focus on leading with the heart, doing humanitarian activities, and developing one's interpersonal skills and personal discipline. Professional narrator Sam Freed captures these emphases well. His inspirational speaking style is similar to that of many narrators of Christian books without sounding evangelical or judgmental. Overall, he brings the production to life without calling attention to his considerable talent. T.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
