« Don't Strive To Be A Leading Company, Strive to Lead | Main | Two Types of Experts »


Jerry Solomon

i'm a small business owner. i run a commercial company as well as have interest in a few other related businesses. one of my partners in these ventures turned me on to you work and sent me your book as a gift.

over the holiday i read it. i loved the concept not only from a philosophical standpoint but also from a managerial one. i have actually written down the why, what and how of my company. what's interesting is much of what you said was something i do instinctively yet i never was able to fully articulate it.

as i head into the new year, i'm going to use much of what you wrote about as a basis to take my company to another level. we have a strong company culture based on 20 years of a successful business. it is from this foundation i hope to turn ourselves from a leading company into a leader.

as it relates to the post, in 2010 i'm moving my company to a busier street. i'm sure i'll lose a few apples before i find the location with the right amount of foot traffic. staying in the same place and hoping to maintain is no longer an option in this climate.

i look forward to following your blog. if you have a chance read mine as i'm going to report throughout the year on our progress. may be a good case study to see if your theory applies to small business as well as publicly traded ones.

Great, simple story to illustrate fear and the boundaries of our imagination... and what might happen when you take a risk.

Always enjoy your blog and am loving your book!
