About The Book

"Each one, reach one, teach one."

These words get me fired up! They also explain the purpose of this book. This is my way of giving back, and it’s my way of saying that whatever I’ve done, you can do it, too. It doesn’t matter who you -- are a blue collar worker, an MBA grad, a new business owner, or a student working nights to pay your way through school.

Millionaire Moves: Seven Proven Principles of Entrepreneurship is a down-to-earth, relevant and riveting glimpse into the professional journey of one of the country’s most successful black businessmen, William F. Pickard, Ph.D. Dr. Pickard details the highs and lows of his entrepreneurial evolution in an authentic, instructive, and sometimes humorous manner. Young entrepreneurs will be inspired by lessons learned from his bookie uncle, loyal colleagues and determined competitors. They’ll also take a little trip through time as he shares the stories of other hard-working men and women who made it – despite the odds. The valuable tips and proven tools provided by Millionaire Moves are essential for anyone striving to achieve the next level of success.
