The fascinating, thought provoking story will intrigue readers who are interested in owning, managing, investing, or working in a financially successful and personally gratifying business.

The captivating tale is about the search of a perplexed young business owner to find a mentor who can help him save his faltering business. After a lengthy search for a happy and successful business owner to be his mentor, the young owner is ready to conclude that a person cannot be both wealthy and happy.
