By Robert X. Leeds
"Success is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration." Hogwash!
"Location. Location. Location." Ridiculous!
"Become an instant millionaire." Nothing more than fallacious bait!
Read the hilarious odyssey of a starry eyed youth and his true life adventures on the road from poverty to riches. He made millions. He spent millions. And, he lost millions. This is not your typical "How To" book and definitely not filled with the standard mantras spewed at all those "get rich quick" seminars. From mercenary and diamond smuggler to General Motor's executive and movie partner with the famous Orson Welles, Leeds takes you on one of the most fascinating financial quests of the century.
At last, someone has written the definitive rebuttal to all the "GET RICH QUICK" promises being hawked in books, seminars, and infomercials to eager entrepreneurs.
In this book, award-winning author Robert X. Leeds, details his odyssey from youthful rags to mature riches. From hauling ashes to wing-walking in air circuses, he did it all. Sailor, diamond smuggler. gun runner, boxer, mercenary (veteran of 3 wars by age 21), inventor, college instructor, General Motors executive, partner with Ray Kroc (McDonald's founder), partner with Orson Welles in a movie venture. He made millions, spent millions, and he lost millions, and still laughs all the way to the bank! (You'll laugh too, when you read his extraordinary entrepreneurial exploits!)
In addition to the rich experience of sixty-five years of business ventures, Leeds also provides the reader with One Hundred time tested Proverbs for success in life as well as in business. This book is "must" reading for anyone contemplating success in life and in business.
