Quotes from Kenneth H Blanchard, Don Hutson and Ethan Willis’s ‘The One Minute Entrepreneur’



Some days I wish if these books really had some secrets (worth it kind) in them. But it’s my wishful thinking. And I know it that if there were ‘secrets’ to getting this or that, then either these books would be sold at much higher price or no one would write it.

Why share the secret, unless it’s no secret at all.

Anyway, let’s move on to the quotes….
