Summary:
Business can be discouraging. According to US Department of Labor figures, only 44 percent of newly-opened firms will last four years. Amish farms, on the other hand, have registered a 95% survival rate over a five-year period. And in many cases, those businesses do remarkably well-as Donald Kraybill writes: "the phrase 'Amish millionaire' is no longer an oxymoron." Success Made Simple is the first practical book of Amish business success principles for the non-Amish reader. The work provides a platform of transferable principles - simple and universal enough to be applied in the non-Amish world, in a wide variety of business and management settings.
