After over ten successful years in print, Visionary Business will be available in a new, revised edition, with 25 percent new material from the author. A combination of Stephen Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and Paulo Coehlo's The Alchemist , Visionary Business describes the quest for entrepreneurial success as far more than the ability to be financially savvy. Told as an anecdotal tale of wisdom, Allen makes clear from the start that he learned as he went and that his secret to success lies t so much in management elan but in practical grace and humble persistence. In this story, Allen's mentor, an older investment specialist named Bernie, teaches him the ways of ethical and socially responsible business. Together they direct Allen's fledgling attempts into a thriving corporate success, founded on principles as diverse as Eastern and Western spirituality, simple kindness, mysticism, and market savvy. Visionary Business is an empowering and inspiring look at the possibilities of right livelihood and creative leadership, for anyone who seeks the balance between entrepreneurial success and personal fulfilment.
