“I have spent most of my time during the past 25 years as a banking executive working with business owners in every industry and stage of business imaginable. This first-hand experience has enabled me to see several characteristics that the most successful businesses have in common,” said Bennett. “This book identifies these commonalities and gives business owners some nuggets of wisdom to enable them to maximize the potential of their business enterprise.”
