Enforcer to Entrepreneur: Achieving Hockey Stick Growth in Life, Business, and Sports
Nothing in business is a mystery. Sucess comes through careful study and dedication to the process.
I was a professional hockey player who grew up in a hockey family. My dad is Al Rollins, NHL player and professional coach. In my childhood and as a young man, I was surrounded by the greats: Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull, and Wayne Gretzky. I was lucky enough to learn a lot from them about life, sportsmanship, and excellence. But this is not a hockey book.
I am also a high school dropout. I took everything I learned on and off the ice and became a successful CEO, running five companies and now mentoring hundreds of executives. I clawed my way to the top, not by being the best, but by observing and mimicking those who did possess extraordinary talent.
Business is a process and once you understand it, success is almost inevitable. This book will share decades of experience gathered by some of the most successful executives I know—lessons which were previously only available to the top leaders in the industry.
Why reinvent the wheel when so many before you have found the formula for success?
