Life Skills On Display
As a big fan of “The One Minute Manager” series over the years I was very pleased to have found a copy of THE ONE MINUTE ENTREPRENEUR By Ken Blanchard, Don Hutson and Ethan Willis (Currency/Doubleday, 2008). The focus of the book is creating and sustaining a successful business but I found the issues raised in the parable of the book was applicable to all of life. The story involves a fictional couple who is mentored by “real life” people who’s names are well known in the personal growth world. The parable includes a rough start and the lessons learned to transition to a successful mindset. The body of the work lays out the skills and principles necessary to establish a career on an upward trajectory. The end portion does not ignore common pitfalls and temptations that trip people up as they move through life. At less than 130 pages the book is a short read but the appendix covering the “top 20 attributes of successful entrepreneurs” is a nice value added. This is an excellent book for someone starting out as well as someone in the middle of their careers as a course affirmation or road map for correction. A very worth while read!
