“Many small businesses are doomed from day one, not from competition or the economy, but from the ignorance of their owners . . . their destiny is already decided because they have no idea how a business should be operated.”
William Manchee, Go Broke, Die Rich: Turning Around the Troubled Small Business

“There are few experiences in life as painful and brutal as the failure of a small business. For a small business conceived and nurtured by its owner is like a living, breathing child. Its loss is no less traumatic than losing a loved one.”
William Manchee, Go Broke, Die Rich: Turning Around the Troubled Small Business

“Never call your office while you’re on vacation. That’s always been one of my hard and fast rules.”
William Manchee, Deadly Distractions

“If there was a day of the week I could skip it would be Monday. Clients had too much time to think and worry over a long weekend and by Monday they were often riddled with fear and anxiety.”
Stan Turner

“What is it that makes a seemingly rational man set out on a perilous journey knowing full well that the odds of success are quite remote and the consequences of failure are likely to be devastating? Is it pride, stubbornness, a yearning for adventure, or just a reckless disregard of reality?”
