This book captures the essence of what is commonly overlooked by many in their pursuit of a more rounded business education. This book focuses on that part of the business world to which many business owners and entrepreneurs may not be exposed simply because of the more mundane things with which they deal on a day-to-day basis. This book identifies many things of which a business owner, entrepreneur, or manager must be aware if he/she is to be effective in maintaining a viable business enterprise. It is a first-hand account of the many areas of business that I had to experience as a manager in state government, in the banking and finance community, and in the general business community. This book epitomizes that which is important to today’s businessperson and his/her ability to deal effectively with issues in business that might otherwise develop from time to time under his/her watch.
