A Cup of Cappuccino for the Entrepreneur's Spirit - find your passion and live the dream features entrepreneurs' true short stories written to inspire, energize and teach the reader. The stories include adversities, challenges, triumphs, and successes experienced by the entrepreneur to help readers discover passion and basic principles they can use to live the entrepreneurial dream. Touching both the head and the heart, the stories feature entrepreneurs from ages 21 to 94 representing a diverse range of business types, sizes, and income levels. Stories are presented in a "can do" optimistic format, opened with relevant inspirational quotes, and closed with key success factors, recommended books, entrepreneurs' websites, and editor's notes.
Featured entrepreneurs include Scott Klososky from Oklahoma, who sold his last company for $115M. Scott believes that building businesses is a noble act and that entrepreneurship has made the U.S. economy the powerhouse that it is. Evelyn Echols, an entrepreneur from Chicago recently celebrated her 94th birthday and is still involved in entrepreneurial ventures. Ms. Echols believes that this era is the perfect time for young people to consider entrepreneurship. Evelyn owned and operated Echols International Travel School for 35 years and just published her second book with Walter Cronkite writing the foreword. Particularly relevant in today's economy, Katherine Sansone of SANSONE+ PR and Marketing firm in Oakland, California started a business because she was tired of being laid off and wanted to control her own destiny. She now represents notable clients worldwide and discusses changes she had to make in her business with personnel including using contract management rather than having employees. Tamara Dujmovic and Robert Sterpin, two successful entrepreneurs from Izola, Slovenia, Europe (the former Yugoslavia), discuss their business strategies and illustrate the possibilities of entrepreneurship in a society where owning a business was not an option prior to 1991. In the current economic climate, entrepreneurs must work harder than ever before to differentiate their businesses from the competition. Key success factors such as passion, customer service, relationships, work ethic, integrity, determination and perseverance are reiterated throughout the book.
