9780062253507: Business Brilliant: Surprising Lessons from the Greatest Self-Made Business Icons

In Business Brilliant, Lewis Schiff combines compelling storytelling with ground-breaking research to show the rest of us what America’s self-made rich already know: It’s synergy, not serendipity that produces success.

He explodes common myths about wealth and explains how legendary entrepreneurs such as Richard Branson, Suze Orman, Steve Jobs, and Warren Buffet have subscribed to a set of priorities that’s completely different from those of the middle class.

Schiff identifies the seven distinct principles practiced by individuals who may or may not be any smarter than the rest of the population, but seem to understand instinctively how money is made. This guide also reveals how these business icons excel in areas of team building, risk management, and leadership development to accumulate their wealth.

He offers a practical four-step program, from choosing one’s livelihood and pinpointing skills to focus on, to negotiating job terms and salary, in order to bring upon greater success.

Business Brilliant by Lewis Schiff, coauthor of The Middle Class Millionaire: The Rise of the New Rich and How They are Changing America and The Armchair Millionaire, can help you can achieve better results in your business and in your career.

Review:

“Having started Edible Arrangements, an international franchise with more than 1,000 stores, I know that the more “business brilliant” my franchise partners are, the more likely they are to build hugely successful stores. I wish I had read this book a decade ago.” (Tariq Farid, Founder and CEO, Edible Arrangements)

“Whether you are starting a new business or navigating your career, conventional wisdom doesn’t get you very far. Lewis Schiff clearly outlines the true characteristics of success I wish I had read Business Brilliant 25 years ago when we started The Brooklyn Brewery.” (Steve Hindy, Founder and President, Brooklyn Brewery and co-author of Beer School)

“An engaging look at ‘realigning our career-development practices with the world we live in today’… intriguing, different kind of take on the self-help moneymaking genre.” (Kirkus)

“Schiff builds his narrative on solid evidence, including research data comparing and contrasting the self-made person with the usual middle class.” (Booklist)

“…Schiff offers useful insights such as ‘people who are the most brilliant at business are also those who fail most often,’ and urges readers to understand that ‘failure can be good.’” (Publishers Weekly)
