How One Idea Can Change your Business and Your
Hardcover gift book 144 pages, 6.75" square
By Mac Anderson
From Anonymous of Fairmont, MN. I truly
love reading all of Simple Truths books. From each one you take
away ideas that will help you in your personal life or business.
The same is with this one. We all have ideas, it is taking them to
the next level that is often the hardest step. Reading about how
Mac Anderson, Mary Kay, Ray Kroc, Sam Walton and many others took
there ideas do the next level. Very inspirational book. I have
enjoyed reading this book to my kids to let them know they can be
anything and do anything with there ideas.

powerful and one...just one, can change your business and your
life. If you don't believe me, just pick up the phone and call
Steve Jobs, Howard Shultz or Bill Gates. (Oops...I just remembered,
they might be pretty busy.) Here's the question and also the
inspiration for this book... How do big ideas happen? Is there a
process or a formula? Or do big ideas just "bubble up" when minds
are curious and open to change? As a lifetime entrepreneur, the
"big idea question" has always fascinated me.
story is different, sometimes just reading how it happened can
"spark" your imagination into action. Sometimes just learning about
an individual who was willing to take the risk to follow his or her
dream and fight through adversity to keep it alive, might be just
the "push" you need. However, this collection of "Big Idea Stories"
was not only written with the entrepreneur in mind, it was also
written to inspire innovation within existing companies. Far too
often, companies "roll on" with the status quo, only to wake up one
day to find...competition has passed them by.
ambition is to start your own company or you want to apply "Big
Idea" thinking to your existing company - I know this book will
help spark many new ideas to make your story the next
