Still glowing from the success of his hit TV show- The Apprentice, the world most famous real estate investor, beauty pageant impresario, philanthropist, conventional business man and a bestselling author Donald J. Trump; once again released another creative venture that embodies his unique style and larger- than-life persona in Trump 101- The Way to Success. He has compiled the wisdom and tactics he has used to become a billionaire through his short, to-the- point lessons that contain the essentials he feels can raise one’s spirit and power one who is searching for knowledge far beyond his or her wildest dream, to the top in his/her career/business.
In Trump 101, Trump is seen as a personal mentor and coach as he shares tips, tactics and strategies in thirty-three chapters to help make the most of oneself, career and life. He provides vital information containing basic rules or beliefs and shows one how to make it work. Also to be seen are challenging questions submitted to him on his popular Trump University blog along with honest answers.
The most fascinating element of Trump 101-The Way to Success are the direness of his stories. This is not a guy who talks about small things; he dashes off statements like
“For seven years, New York City had been trying to rebuild and restore this beautiful skating rink but it never seemed to work. I stepped in and finished it in three months and for less than ten percent of the city’s twenty one dollar million cost, everyone benefitted”.
“Thinking small when you could think big limits you in all aspects of your life”
“Remember the saying, ‘it’s lonely at the top’ I don’t agree with it. Someone who didn’t want any competition probably coined it. I’m secure enough in my success to welcome competition and being at the top is a great feeling”.
“Few things are as exciting and schedule blowing as a new baby- just ask any father and he will agree…”
‘’ Despite what people think, I wasn’t born with the Midias touch. I’ve been very lucky- I’m the first to admit it…’’
Trump 101 captures Trump’s management skills, career and financial advice as well as lessons on the most important qualities and skills every business person needs- passion. Other lessons include:
Finding the work you love and doing it
Setting high standards and meeting them
Negotiating to win
Being tough, not nasty
Turning problems, even disasters into gold
Concentrating on your target
Keeping your momentum boiling
Thinking Trump scale
Insisting on perfection
Toughing it out and lots more.
