Everyone knows Hugh Hefner but not everyone knows his story and my gosh what a great story. What I love about this book is that it shows Hef had a vision of what he wanted and what he wanted to do and he created it all from scratch.

I think if you read through this book, you too will find further inspiration on how to create your own dream business. You can do it if you want to. All the world is waiting to see what you create.

In a recent post we were discussing how when you find yourself profitable in a business endeavor, you tend to think everything I touch will turn to gold. Well as you will see in this book, that is not necessarily true. In fact I would venture to guess that it's difficult to recreate success in other fields, you can do it, but it will take lots of skill.

What is your view of Hef and of his brand? I'd like to know.
