"We are always searching for ways to translate our visions into a reality.

“The Founding Fathers are called ahead of their time for a reason, as much of their ideas and concepts still hold very well today. “Conventional Wisdom: How Today’s Leaders Plan, Perform, and Progress Like the Founding Fathers” takes a look at how the wisdom of America’s great leaders hasn’t changed all that much in two hundred years. Showing how the economic policies of Madison, the leadership qualities of Washington, the diplomacy of Franklin are all key features in today’s business, “Conventional Wisdom” takes a unique approach to explaining a successful business today.”
