The Entrepreneur Book of Actions
McGraw Hill
January 01, 2017
The action plan for building your entrepreneurial empire―one day at a time

While every entrepreneur knows that the key to success is business growth, few ever see it happen. Why? Because they know how to plant seeds, but they don’t understand that the real work lies in helping that seed grow―which takes knowledge, persistence, and patience.

The Entrepreneurs Book of Actions helps you develop the mindset of a true entrepreneur and provides manageable steps for making your business vision a reality. Informative, inspiring, and based on real-life, hard-earned lessons, it provides common-sense, daily exercises you can jump into on day one. Learn how to drive sustainable business growth by:

* Breaking bad habits―and developing good ones
* Managing your time and money more effectively
* Hiring the right people for the right job
* Minimizing the effort required to perform basic tasks
* Motivating your staff to be mission-focused
* Creating “free” time to feed your innovative side

You’ll begin to see your business in a completely new way―with a sense of clarity and purpose. You’ll begin identifying the issues that really affect your business―not the ones that feed your anxiety. You’ll become the kind of leader other entrepreneurs look up to―calm, optimistic, driven.

The Entrepreneurs Book of Actions will provide the direction you need to make the best use of your time, your energy, and your creativity. It’s not isn’t a quick fix. It’s work. But it’s manageable, it’s proven effective―and it will pay off big.

One Million Frogs
Mill City Press
June 28, 2016
Amazon #1 Best-Seller
In 2007, Rhett Power and Peter Gasca resigned from lucrative consulting jobs with tremendous professional freedom to start their first company together, Wild Creations. Just a year later, the worst economic recession in a generation paralyzed the global economy. In the face of overwhelming odds, and in true entrepreneurial form, Power and Gasca were able to persevere with a great deal of creativity, common sense, and, ultimately, sheer determination.

Within two years, Wild Creations grew to be recognized by the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce as the fastest-growing company in the state and by Inc. Magazine as one of the 500 fastest-growing companies in the U.S.
Through One Million Frogs, Gasca and Power hope to provide other aspiring entrepreneurs with validation and inspiration, using the knowledge they gained in growing a highly successful business of their own in one of the most tumultuous times in a generation.
