“Get a Black Belt in Business!” describes the most
important characteristics for the martial artist in attaining a black belt and
then compares the qualities to the skills necessary for a successful
Throughout the years, I realized that the traits that I
learned in karate have propelled my business career. Yet I’ve worked with many
business executives, especially young business people, who appear to be missing
many of these important characteristics. I wrote this book to help executives
learn the black belt skill set.
The chapters explain the six belt colors of white, yellow,
green, blue, red and black. Each color contains several important qualities
such as confidence, respect, honor, etc. Under each quality, I describe the
martial arts training, then the business application with examples of success
and failure in karate as well as business. Readers have told me that they
enjoyed the anecdotal stories that reinforce the belt color qualities. Some of
the stories are poignant and others are funny – all to help executives become
black belts in business.
If you are ready to enter the business world or start a
business, or perhaps
newly graduated MBA , college or high school student who’s embarking on a career, you’ll find this book
informative and fun to read. If you want to learn and are interested in
launching a successful career, “Get a Black Belt in Business!” will give
you a blueprint for building a stellar career. The Book offers many serious and
funny examples of both failures and triumphs in the business world as an
anecdotal guide to victory.
