Book Description

Dare to Dream, Dare to Act is an unconventional biography filled with real stories of creativity, innovation, risk and success. Terry Rich is a proven CEO, leader, marketer and businessman who shares the method behind developing innovative ideas into successful actions throughout his professional career.

“When I was growing up, people were always saying I was creative. For years I thought it was a polite way of telling me I was a little bit crazy. And I probably am a little bit crazy. I live to constantly come up with ideas that people don’t quite know what to do with… ideas that seem not tried or break all the rules. But you’re reading this book because I’ve found ways to put good ideas into action. So if you’re looking for ways to create an innovative environment in your life, here’s my advice to consider or throw away: Dare to Dream and Dare to Act.”
