Out of the Classroom Lesson in Success By Cynthia Kocialski

Out of the Classroom Lesson in Success By Cynthia Kocialski

How to Prosper Without Being at the Top of the Class

© 2011

Is being success all about Academic achievements?  I don’t think so!  When I was growing up I was taught that good grades were most important.  That was in the 1960’s!  Some subjects that were taught to me were much easier than others.  Just because I failed a subject or received bad grades does not mean that I am a failure.  To be a success it is important to learn to from your mistakes but to keep on going.

If you are passionate about what you are doing you will be a success.  Value lies in experience, because then you have proof that you know how to do something.

Cynthia Kocialski’s book will tell about success in the working world.  It is the result of planning, promoting, taking action and going for it.  Her book will help anyone realize their business goals, avoid p8itfalls, and provide the blueprint to help you become a successful entrepreneur.

Cynthis writes the start up entrepreneurs’ Blog, which cover observations, lessons and funny stories of life inside high-tech startup companies.

After reading her book I am looking forward to learning more from her newest book “Start Up from the Ground up.”

This is a free book given to me for my honest review.
