HEASLEY&PARTNERS worked with Jim Houtz on this book about taking your small entrepreneurial business into the stratosphere. This powerful book is a follow up to Jim’s earlier book, Seize the American Dream, co-authored by Kathy Heasley, published in 2002 and developed by HEASLEY&PARTNERS.
Jim has decades of experience as an entrepreneur, successful CEO, angel investor. He was the founder and CEO of CyCare, a company that virtually invented electronic record keeping in health care. What started as a data processing company in the 1960’s became a New York Stock Exchange technology company worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Jim had a great story to tell, full of wisdom and directives. And that was the problem. Jim is a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, skill and opinions about how to run and grow a company. And he communicates like a CEO, direct and to the point. Of course! He’s been one all his life. But there’s a difference between taking direction from a CEO for whom you work for, and reading a book by one. We needed to take Jim’s wealth of knowledge and transition it into stories with lessons that readers would embrace and follow.
