Entrepreneurial Ongoing Education Advice

I would like to give some advice to all the up and coming entrepreneurs; if you really want to be a superstar not only do you have to work harder and smarter than the competition, but you must always keep learning. I built a company from a bucket of water and a sponge into a National Car Wash Franchise System in 23 states. To do this you need to know more than what they taught you in school and you can never turn off your brain. Every person is different and has different interests. But I would like you to read thru my recommended reading list. This is a list I hand out to MBA and Entrepreneurial Students when I give speeches. It is a list of recommended book, biography, audio tapes and movies.

I see the need for the modern Entrepreneur for on going learning, which must not stop after HS. In order to continue a life long education it is important to understand and observe the world, understand our places in it. We must also realize the ideals that got us here and the people who worked so hard to bring about the change needed to propel mankind's future. Below is a list of recommended Biographies, Books, Audio Tapes and Movies, which can assist you in your lifetime of learning and your pursuit of happiness as you Entrepreneur warriors deliver mankind everything we see, every where we go. We owe it all to you; you are the most noble of all people, you are the builders of civilization. I thank you for your continued efforts and urge you to continue your education do you can be even stronger.
