(4.7 stars; 133 reviews)

Every one of us is engaged in a quest in this life. The quest is why we get up early in the mornings or very late at night and leave the safety of our homes and families. We venture out into a world where the rules are different then the rules we grew up with. We find that the rules are different than the ones we were taught in school. We get into our cars. We hail taxi cabs. We walk in the rain. We take trains and buses. We navigate security lines at crowded airports. In short, we make the necessary sacrifices to insure that we can not only survive but thrive in this life. We do what needs to be done because we want more out of this life.

During this quest have you ever felt like you needed to step back and get a clear view of the situation? Have you ever felt overwhelmed, lost or unsatisfied with your progress?

Welcome to the beehive.

Let's face facts. Higher education only covers a small portion of what a person needs to know in order to excel in the world of business. The rest is up to you. The author, like most people, learned this fact the hard way. Through this book, the author shares with you the most basic (and most critical) lessons he's learned since entering the beehive.

Welcome to the Beehive addresses the core of the lessons the author has learned while achieving success in his life. These lessons represent a starting point on which to build your entire business philosophy. Each lesson includes practical examples from the author's life and the lives of people who've achieved success in business. Inspirational passages amplify the message delivered with each lesson. All the lessons contain exercises designed to stimulate personal thought and help reinforce the topics covered in the book. Welcome to the Beehive is a street level business book providing the reader with a back-to-basics approach. It gets to the point and provides the reader with a solid tool that they can refer to time and again for inspiration and empowerment while making their way in the world of business.

Thank you for your feedback. You're very right when you say that the concepts in the book are not new. But how many times do we forget about the basics when going about our lives on a daily basis? Too many! So I do my best to provide some common ...

Thanks for starting the book David. I hope you enjoy it. I really can't remember exactly where I heard it from the first time. It's something that I've heard commented on several times over the years when analyzing the performance of young QBs. It may have been Boomer Esiason though.

Great introduction to basic but important life/business lessons that no one bothers to teach you. A good book for senior high school or college students to start life on the right foot; also good for later life if trying to change direction or starting something new.
