St. Louis Entrepreneurs and How They Got Their Start | StarLake Holdings

September 14, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Estimated reading time: 1 minute(s)

Would you sell encyclopedias in the worst parts of Los Angeles to make money? Would you sleep on a cot in a factory to make sure your machines were running correctly? Would you sell your wedding gifts to help fund your first business idea?

Find out which Entrepreneurs did each of these things. In his first book, Rare Company, St. Louis entrepreneur and author John Berglund uses his dry wit and clear writing style to tell readers how an elite group of successful St. Louis business owners overcame obstacles as they built and grew their companies. Each one has a captivating story to tell. The common themes are drawn together to provide readers with real-life “lessons learned” that apply to any business.
