As we travel down the roads of life, we are confronted consistently with decisions that we need to make. Donald Trump, based on the trials and successes that he has faced, teaches us that every important decision we make is going to determine what will happen in our lives in the future. For the most part, we are making most of our decisions without a need to give thought to what the outcomes of those decisions will be. Donald gave examples for us to further understand this, such as we have to decide when to get out of bed and what we are going to do as soon as we get up. The options may be as simple as brushing our teeth and sitting down and having a cup of coffee and may even consist of constructing a plan for building a business. The options that we have can be extremely complex or simple, depending on the situation. Each decision we make will influence our lives and business dealings for either better or worse. 1.

The legendary leadership guide, distilled from a lifetime of wisdom and experience in government and business... Throughout his long and distinguished career - as a naval aviator, a U.S. Congressman, a top aide to four American presidents, a high-level diplomat, a CEO of two Fortune 500 companies, and the only twice-serving Secretary of Defense in American history - Donald Rumsfeld has collected hundreds of pithy, compelling, and often humorous observations about leadership, business, and life. When President Gerald Ford ordered these aphorisms distributed to his White House staff in 1974, the collection became known as ´´Rumsfeld´s Rules´´. First gathered as three-by-five cards in a shoebox and then typed up and circulated informally over the years, these eminently nonpartisan rules have amused and enlightened presidents, business executives, chiefs of staff, foreign officials, diplomats, and members of Congress. They earned praise from the Wall Street Journal as ´´Required reading´´, and from the New York Times which said: ´´Rumsfeld´s Rules can be profitably read in any organization.... The best reading, though, are his sprightly tips on inoculating oneself against that dread White House disease, the inflated ego.´´ Meanwhile, the collection continued to grow as Rumsfeld added new rules derived from things he read, heard, or observed in more than eight decades of a remarkable life. Now, these legendary rules are made available for the first time to corporate executives. Rumsfeld has selected his most useful and important rules for effective leadership, enhanced with fresh insights and entertaining anecdotes, and discusses them in the blunt and witty style that made his Pentagon press conferences ´´must-see TV´´. Distilled from a career of unusual breadth and accomplishment, and organized under practical topics like hiring people, running a meeting, and dealing with the press, Rumsfeld´s Rules can benefit people at eve... 1.

The definition of entrepreneurship is the activity of developing, organizing and managing a business, mindful of the need for financial risk but with the aim of making profit. The word ´´entrepreneurship´´ is relatively new but it could have been applied to many people before the word was ever adopted. Take, for example, Thomas Edison. He would not have known the word, but as the inventor of the electric light bulb, the moving picture camera, and the gramophone, he was both inventor and entrepreneur. The two are things are not necessarily related; the entrepreneur who sees an opportunity in the market is not necessarily the person who has invented something. The person who grasps the opening is an entrepreneur. One of the most famous modern entrepreneurs was Steve Jobs who died at 56 years of age, in 2011. His legacy lives on and when discussing the subject of entrepreneurship and business, it is worth remembering his life. This book will discuss and analyze the deep impact Steve Jobs had on entrepreneurship and the business world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nate Sjol.
