Item description for From the Ground Up: It's Not Just Business! by John L. Hoich...
Growing up in a dysfunctional, often abusive home, John L. Hoich could have become a misfit himself but instead took charge of his own destiny that ultimately made him a businessman of great stature. From the Ground Up, Its Not Just Business, describes how one man did it and you can, too.
His inspiring story, beginning when John was a teenager, describes his path from an often cruel family life, to near bankruptcy in his early 20s, to his creation of a vast business empire that led him to become a millionaire by the age of 30. Today, John L. Hoich is one of the most successful, wealthy people in the U.S.
His journey proves that against both personal and professional odds, anyone can be successful. In From the Ground Up, Its Not Just Business, Hoich describes beginning his grounds maintenance business with just one lawnmower and building an empire that has included grounds maintenance contracts at U.S. government facilities, land development, ownership of a Hampton Hotel, a medical office building, apartment complexes, shopping centers, assisted living facilities, a golf course and a fifty-year contract for military housing development.
Johns success is founded in his philosophy of Hoichisms. Among the many gems of advice: constantly strive for improvement in performance, contacts and quality of service; persist until a solution is found; believe that quitting is the only failure and everything else is an opportunity.
From the Ground Up, Its Not Just Business, proves that people can take charge of their destinies if they recognize what needs to be done and go about doing it.

A Message of Hope, Inspiration and Basic Smarts For Everyone Jul 2, 2007
This is a must read book. Once I started it I could not put it down. Mr. Hoich has overcome adversity that would paralyze most mortal beings. Not only did he survive but he thrived and flourished beyond most people's wildest dreams. Mr. Hoich built an empire starting out with one lawn mower but his success delves well beyond the financial empire that he created. Best of all, Mr. Hoich gives back to his community and so many organizations in a multitude of ways and now through sharing his message for all. He seems to be a man that truly practices what he preaches which is indeed a rare quality in a greed inspired world.
Mr. Hoich's common sense, easy to read message is applicable to the entire population, including but not limited to: teens, tycoons, corporations, housewives, those dealing with substance abuse recovery or loved ones dealing with the fall out of addictive behavior, college students and anyone wishing to be inspired with his profound message of hope.
I cannot recomend this book highly enough and I only wish Mr. Hoich could get his message of hope and inspiration out to the world through the mass media.
