Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of The Greatest Prospector in the World by Ken Dunn in exchange for an honest review.
It is my pleasure to have the opportunity to read The Greatest Prospector in the World by Ken Dunn. I was stunned to find that The Greatest Prospector in the World is not only a parable on creating success in business, but a masterfully written historical novel. It was enjoyable to read and filled with six nuggets that will lead you to higher success in sales, in business, and in life.
Laura is a very strong character with a deep will to succeed and an even deeper connection to the story of her family. She uses these traits as a blueprint that will ultimately lead to her own story of success in a time when women rarely succeeded in business.
Mr. Dunn is a master of words as well as a master of the skills of success. This is a book that should be shared and read in businesses of all types, secular and non-secular, and also by people looking for a way to make their lives more meaningful and better balanced. I’m adding his six tips for success to my life to help round out my 2016 plan to health, balance and success in my family and with my blog.
I highly recommend The Greatest Prospector in the World by Ken Dunn give it five steaming cups of Room With Books coffee.
