About the Book

The Risk Takers is about the personal and professional journeys of sixteen remarkable men and women who built hugely successful, multimillion dollar companies. These were ordinary people, all with a good idea, who faced daunting challenges but took the leap of faith to start their own business. Don and Renee Martin personally interviewed these men and women whose stories demonstrate that it has never been easy to start your own business and steer it to ultimate success—in any economy, in any era. Offering an insider's look, The Risk Takers highlights the common traits and business strategies that helped propel these men and women to the heights of success. Their experiences are heartening, uplifting, and inspiring. Their strategies can be applied to nearly any new or existing enterprise.
