Business can be discouraging. According to U.S. Department of Labor figures, only 44 percent of newly opened firms will last four years. Amish firms, 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.
- Learn how to develop profitable and fulfilling enterprises as Amish explain how to build fruitful relationships with customers and employees, prosper by playing to strengths, and create an effective marketing story
- Includes interviews with over 50 Amish business owners outline the role of relationships in business and the importance of the big picture-taking in long-term goals, the welfare of others, and personal integrity
- Offers ideas on practical application of Amish business practices to non-Amish businesses, with "bullet" summaries at the end of each chapter reviewing the most important take-away points
With a focus on relationship-building and the big picture, Success Made Simple offers business owners everywhere the tools for better, smarter, more successful enterprises.

Simple enduring truths
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
We make life complex looking for answers in place where they are not to be found while they are before us all the time. Traditional values have worked well for previous generations and have gotten us to where we are now, building on those and not abolishing them is the path forward.
