This is the title of a book that I really enjoy. It is the life story of a man named Harry Quadracci. The book takes you on a virtual tour of his life, starting when he was just a boy, and ending sadly with his death, after he had created a printing dynasty so to speak.
If you get a chance to read this book, it will teach you many things. It will teach you humility, passion, the art of taking chances, and the art of making people believe in YOU. This I feel is a must read for anyone in the business world, whether you re a realtor, a small business owner, or the kid fresh out of college, looking to make a name. I really feel there is a lot to learn from this guys journey through life.
I had the joy of personally knowing and working for Harry. I worked in one of his printing plants for almost a decade. He was truly ahead of his time and helped shape many peoples' lives. He believed in giving every one a fair shake, but he always had a trick up his sleeve too.
Look the book up and if you can, I encourage you to read it, and I hope you enjoy it. Some days I think about what the Admiral would think of this world if he were still here. I am sure he would have some wise words for us as we negotiate these rough waters. Keep your nose into the wind and good luck.
