Summary: From one of the most dynamic business men in the country, a motivational doctrine for those who want to make their most ambitious dreams come true. Emilio Estefan, husband to singer Gloria Estefan and founder of the Latin pop legend Miami Sound Machine, came to the United States as a Cuban refugee and went on to become a 19-time Grammy®-winning producer and develop an evergreen business with investments in real estate, entertainment, hotels, and restaurants. Emilio succeeded on his own terms, and now, he shares his guiding principles that readers will need to start and grow their own business or climb higher on the corporate ladder--the basics needed for readers to identify their values, believe in their ideas, and establish their own plans for success.--From publisher description.
