College students and professionals already in the workforce are flooding university classrooms, looking for information on how to build their own businesses rather than going the traditional route of working for someone else. However, ask successful business owners, and they'll say that there is more to the entrepreneurial life than just knowing how to run a business. In "Crossing the Road to Entrepreneurship", author Bert L. Wolstein, master entrepreneur, shares his lessons on how to start, grow, and maintain successful businesses. He shows how the combination of business sense and common sense helped him cross over to the proverbial 'right side of the tracks' via a host of different business ventures spanning 50 years, and how the reader can dictate the financial future by entering the world of entrepreneurship.
