Product Description

Review

"Every entrepreneur should read this book! First-rate profiles of Canadian business struggles and successes." - Rick Spence, National Post

"Anyone who wants to become an entrepreneur should get comfortable with the word 'no.' A lot of people will tell you it's not possible. But Canada's future economic prosperity is depending upon innovative entrepreneurs who know how to make the not-so-possible happen. The stories shared within That'll Never Work demonstrate the value of persevering through adversity - it's part of the DNA of every entrepreneur who wants to find success." - W. Brett Wilson, Chairman, Canoe Financial and seen on Slice's Risky Business

"Thank goodness Canada's entrepreneurs don't listen when others tell them 'That'll Never Work!' This book contains a wealth of examples of people who ignored the naysayers, and enriched our country greatly as a result. Current and future entrepreneurs will gain insight and courage from reading it." - Catherine Swift, President and CEO, Canadian Federation for Independent Business

"These entrepreneurial success stories can't be chalked up to chance, but to good leadership anchored on three principles successful entrepreneurs demonstrate: competencies, character and commitment. Competent leaders see the big picture. Leaders with character have the courage and humility to put that big picture before themselves at all costs. Committed leaders welcome dissent and controversy, but never lose sight of that big picture and are willing to make sacrifices in pursuit of it. These entrepreneurs are living proof that commitment to good leadership can make the impossible, possible." - Carol Stephenson, O.C., Dean, Richard Ivey School of Business

"The experiences shared in That'll Never Work are very insightful and practical and I would recommend it to any entrepreneur, business owner or anyone working in a family business today." - Jim Treliving, Chairman and Owner, Boston Pizza International Inc.
