A practical and informative guide on how to succeed in business.
The author of this enlightening and extremely informative book writes from a lifetime in business. His vast span of knowledge encompasses the whole spectrum, from starting out, learning the hard way, choosing your market, employing the right sort of people, and the importance of dedication and attention to detail.
It is this attention to detail which he emphasises throughout the book, highlighting that it is the little things to one person, which matter so much to someone else. This is a very important message, and this book is littered with examples of good business practice which he has excelled at, or failed in, but through the experience he learnt where he went wrong, and passes the information down to you, the reader.
A patriotic American, a husband, and father of four sons, Wes Berry was given a 10% share of his parents flower business as a young man. Ambitious, self-disciplined, and driven by a determination to succeed, he was encouraged by his father to implement his new ideas into the business, as long as they didn’t cost money…

He looks at what gets you up in the morning, and encourages you to determine what your motivation is, to grasping those dream and making them happen. Gives examples of famous influencers throughout history in many fields, and encourages us to embrace the messages which have become their legacy.
There can be no doubt that ‘A Message to Garcia’ by Elbert Hubbard, which is included in the book, has had a deep impact on the author, especially with regard to employing people. Before reading this I admit I had never heard of it, however, once read, it is easy to understand the importance of employing and encouraging employees with the ‘Rowan Trait’ which simply explained is a no-holds-barre commitment to getting a task done.
Jam packed with information from cover to cover, this book contains all the motivation, and advice anyone could need to succeed in their chosen business career.
About the Author:
“Ambition is a powerful sword, especially when it’s wielded by a person of integrity.” – Wes Berry
Wes Berry built a remarkable $60 million-dollar international business from his family’s small florist shop, which began in Detroit. Now, in his extraordinary new book, he shares what he has learned over the years about leadership and business growth.
It is his belief that, to play in the Great Game, you must accept that winning and losing are both part of the same experience. Gleaning from his personal endeavors in business, Wes instructs and encourages you to take full responsibility as a leader. Drawing on insights from great leaders throughout history, he guides you in learning to do the key tasks that made them successful—tasks that will enable you to find complementary employees and associates whom you can help develop in the very same way.
With each turn of the page, you’ll gain knowledge from strategists such as Sun Tzu, General Douglas MacArthur and Sam Houston that will help you grow in business as well as life. Everyone has to start somewhere. As Wes himself has learned, those Small Beginnings often inexorably lead to some mighty Big Things!
