Tremendous - This can be any entrepreneur's life story!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Pour Your Hearth into It: How Starbucks Built a Company: How Starbooks Built a Company (Hardcover)
This book gets to the heart of what can make any well thought out business venture successful. "Pour Your Heart into It." In other words, find your passion, and give it your all.
As a startup entrepreneur, I was truely inspired to learn how a successful business can be built by more than just shrewd negotiation, financial genius and luck. Starbuck's is built around the vision, values and passion of its founders and of Howard Schultz, who shared their goals.
Schultz admits that this book is not a business school textbook. It is, however, a good insight into the personal aspects of building the Starbucks experience. Many companies talk a lot about values and the human side of their business, but are merely talking. Always skeptical, I've spent quite a bit of time talking with local Starbucks employees. Their message is consistent: Howard Schultz does "Walk-the-talk."
