ROC is Energy (un)cubed

 According to WikipediaHenry Ford cannot be credited alone with his perfecting of the assembly line process taking “7 years and plenty of intelligent men” to accomplish. This proves that even 100 years ago our capitalistic enterprise requires collaboration and teamwork, as well as a space for the pursuit of passion.

Did you ever wonder why autobiographies and biographies of inspiring, challenged and successful leaders are consistently best sellers?

Entrepreneurs, politicians, and even celebrities as authors connect readers with that person, untouchable as they may seem. Getting a sneak peek into the mind and personal life of the authors is often fascinating, but often we do not get the opportunity to ask questions in person of the author, by attending the upcoming Dinner Series with Ron McElroy you will get that chance! Limited spots are still available and those is just $25. To attend this private event register right away with Adventures by the Book.
