Everything the GOB Knows About Leading the Country

EVERYTHING THE GOP KNOWS
About Leading the Country

CBS News has called Larry Broughton "the nation's foremost expert on leadership and entrepreneurship." In this celebrated book, Broughton distills years of research, hours of interviews with some of the nation's top leaders, and weeks of rigorous analysis to zero in on the strengths of Republican leadership of our nation in these categories:

  • Business & Commerce
  • National Defense
  • Education
  • Energy
  • Environment
  • Foreign Policy
  • Healthcare & Insurance
  • Homeland Security
  • Housing & Real Estate
  • Social Security
  • Transportation
  • Treasury & Finance
  • Veterans Affairs

His accurate yet startling conclusion? They know NOTHING! (Which is exactly what you'll find throughout most of this book!)

And yet, there is hope. In a not-to-miss and inspiring "Call to Action," Broughton discusses what he calls the "leadership gap" as well its symptoms and solutions. His goal is to show what everyday citizen-leaders can do to step into the leadership gap in their communities, businesses, religious organizations--anywhere leadership is needed.

This book reads like a leadership manifesto, with thought-provoking quotes from some of the greatest leaders in history as well as Broughton's own refreshing take on what leadership means in today's world.

Otherwise, this is a satirical work and political commentary. All interior chapter pages are blank.

Everything the GOP Knows About Leading the Country is a "must have" gift for any die-hard liberals in your life! Give them the gift that will feed their political ego and make them laugh. (Of course, you could also rile them up and give them the companion book, Everything the DEMS Know About Leading the Country!)

VICTORY: 7 Entrepreneur Success Strategies for Veterans

Military veterans possess the perfect combination of drive, determination and dedication to make outstanding entrepreneurs! Vets start businesses at 4 times the rate of the general population; 1 in 7 small businesses operating today are veteran-owned and they enjoy double the success rate of other businesses. Many of today's most prominent businesses, including Nike, FedEX, and GoDaddy.com were founded by vets.

Sadly, many government programs designed to "help and support" veterans start, run and grow a business simply don't work and are designed, administered and taught by people who have never actually run a successful business. Rote formulas and one-size-fits-all government solutions don't cut it on the modern "business battlefield." Today's current and aspiring "Vetrepreneurs" deserve better. They deserve the best cutting-edge information, tools and support mechanisms to create enduring success!

Written by Vetrepreneurs for Vetrepreneurs, this book will transform your approach to leadership, team building, business planning, and decision-making and propel your organization to new heights of enduring success.

Larry Broughton is a great example of why veterans own businesses at twice the rate of non-veterans. The Army pushed him beyond limits he never knew he had and that ambition spilled over into his civilian career as a Vetrepreneur. Larry's a smart, tenacious business leader who honed his skills in service to his country.  Let VICTORY inspire your business to new heights by bringing clarity of purpose, motivation to persevere and an inspiration to dream big.

I believe you'll find their message of "Continue Mission" aka CHARLIE MIKE, one that will help you to NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS! Would-be Vetrepreneurs, VICTORY is a book that will help you unlock your dreams and make them a reality.  Lock 'n Load!

Boots to Business / Larry Broughton

BOOTS to BUSINESS
Introduction to Business Ownership
for Veterans and Military Service Members

Veterans and military personnel returning from active duty are over-represented in entrepreneurship. One in seven veterans is self-employed or is a small business owner, and about one quarter of veterans are interested in starting or buying their own business. And this is why we have teamed with our Resource Partners and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University to create the Operation Boots to Business program.

The leadership and management skills veterans learned during their service have positioned them to become successful entrepreneurs. SBA and our partners deliver an effective introduction to entrepreneurship, educating returning service men and women about the opportunities and realities of entrepreneurship so they can plan effectively for themselves and their families. For all of those who choose to become entrepreneurs, we'll be there for them throughout the life of their businesses with the resources they'll need to grow, succeed, and create jobs.

INTRODUCTION to BUSINESS OWNERSHIP
for Veterans and Military Service Members

Why are military veterans drawn in such large numbers to entrepreneurship, and why do they find such success? As you consider your transition from military to civilian life, could business ownership be the right path for you? This book was written to help transitioning service members answer such questions.

This book was written based on the collective experiences of a group of educators and entrepreneurs who have many years of experience working with military veterans in the pursuit of business ownership. The goal of this publication is to share many of those hard-learned lessons and to help individuals considering business ownership as a post-military career make well-informed decisions.

WARRIORS IN THE BOARDROOM
Harnessing Mission-Tested Leadership Strategies
to Create Extraordinary Business Success

Warriors in the Boardroom is a powerful and inspiring book that simplifies the principles and strategies that military veterans have applied to business to create some of the most influential companies in the world—companies like Nike, Perot Systems, Mail Boxes Etc., GoDaddy.com, and FedEx.

The book identifies the traits of our warrior-business leaders, and speaks to why veteran-led companies outperform non-veteran led companies; and why business owners outnumber non-veteran business owners on a scale of 4 to 1. Warriors in the Boardroom is not only a study of military leadership principles applied to the business arena, but also offers human-interest profiles of some of our most interesting veteran business leaders who share stories of courage, tenacity, tragedy and triumph.
