I was sent a copy of Carol Roth’s new book The Entrepreneur Equation to read and review. Carol gives the reader a no holds barred look at what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. This is the book that doesn’t dance around the secret sauce it tells you what you need to put in to make it all work. You can go to business school get your MBA and I would still say you need to read this book. ...  [ read more ]

Being a member of Collective Bias I was excited to find that they were working with Elmer’s to help Adopt-A-Classroom make a difference in classrooms across the country by donating up to $10,000 in school supplies! ...  [ read more ]
