Make your Own Rules
A Renegade Guide to Unconventional SuccessBook - 2011
Wayne Rogers, star of the classic TV series M*A*S*H*, has had even more success as a businessman and entrepreneur than as an actor. Rather than accepting the stifling constrains of the corporate system, the iconoclastic star applied his own unique viewpoint to a wide range of businesses (a restaurant, a vineyard, a chain of convenience stores, the world of banking, real estate, a film distribution company, and even a famous bridal boutique) and experienced major success. Now, in this award-winning book, he reveals the keys to his success over the past four decades and teaches readers how to thrive outside of their familiar establishment. Make Your Own Rules does this by painting a fascinating portrait of how Rogers excelled precisely because he didn't have prior experience before working in those many businesses--or any preconceived notions of how they should be run. Through insights and engaging stories, you'll learn how to be creative, challenge convention, and seize unexpected opportunities that are not only liberating but make all the difference in your career. Whether you are an entrepreneur or a small business owner, changing careers or just entering the workforce, Make Your Own Rules delivers the inspiration and guidance you need to climb the ladder of your choice.
