Description
This book provides a chronological autobiographical description of my 20 year entrepreneurial journey including the good, the bad, the ugly and the funny steps along the way. In an effort to prepare, interest and entice readers. I confess that I am very proud of Computer Entry Systems Corporation's (CES) performance as it grew from a few Founders, with an idea, to a thousand highly motivated Associates, on four continents, over a 20 year period. We competed, head to head, with the best of the best, including IBM, NCR and Burroughs, companies thousands of times our size and won almost 60% of the competitive encounters. After 4 years of start up losses we achieved sixteen years of consecutively increasing profitability, returning over 30X their initial investment, to Founding investors. While I, personally made 98% of the mistakes an entrepreneur could make, I persisted, I learned, I survived and finally, CES thrived. I hope that you enjoy this book, as much as I enjoyed the journey.
