Mercer Island Author Transforms Little League Principles into Major League Business Success
(MI, WA, Jan. 21, 2013) – You may have learned everything you need to know about life in kindergarten, but, “Everything you need to know about business can be learned from Little League,” says Mercer Island author, speaker, coach and consultant, Earl Bell. The January 30 release of his new book, Winning in Baseball and Business, Transforming Little League Principles into Major League Profits for Your Company, provides an inning by inning road map to success designed to help entrepreneurs reach their business and personal goals faster.
In his book, Bell divides the youth baseball meet business journey into two sections throughout a ten inning game. The top half of each inning focuses on ten Little League principles while the bottom half of each inning applies these same principles to the business world. Earl’s love of both games—baseball and business—shine through as he talks about strategies, goals, how a Little League team and your business can achieve hall of fame results.
“Winning in Baseball and Business is a fun read, easy to understand, and inspirational. My partner and I started a company and grew it to $250 million in annualized billings using many of these principles. I heartily recommend this book to anyone starting or trying to grow a company,” says Ron Elgin, former Chairman and CEO of DDB, Seattle.
Pre-registration is required to attend the International Launch of Winning in Baseball and Business, Transforming Little League Principles into Major League Profits for Your Company, January 30, 5:30 p.m. at the Mercer Island Community and Events Center, 8236 SE 24th Street, Mercer Island, WA.
