I'm a business enthusiast who take profound interest in any books or training programs put out by experience and successful business people from anywhere in the world.
We've seen the launches of many books based on the business experiences and ideas of many successful entrepreneurs including Donald Trump, Warren Buffet and Richard Branson.
Many of these books were worth reading because they shared a wealth of information about these entrepreneurs methods and strategies they used to create and run their businesses and become successful and extremely wealthy. These would have been very useful information for people in business or people interested in starting a business who want to reach high levels of success.
American pawnbroker Les Gold may not be a big name like Donald Trump or Richard Branson, but he is very successful in his area of business which is running a pawnshop in Detroit name American Jewelry and Loan. Les Gold is also the star of the hit reality TV show Hardcore Pawn. And he is launching a book titled "For What It's Worth: Business Wisdom from a Pawnbroker" to share his experience and knowledge.
Why Is Les Gold's For What It's Worth Book Interesting?
Running a pawnshop is no easy business undertaking. You have to be both tough and smart to survive in an area of business like this, and even more get rich from it. Les Gold has been a pawnbroker for many years and he also became very successful from doing it - that's the reason his book is interesting and worth reading.
As a third-generation pawnbroker, Les Gold grew up in the business, dealing with all types of customers who could be unruly and violent as often as they were friendly. He became good at selling just about anything and at buying items for what they were worth. Although he started at his family's small pawnshop, he has now expanded into a fifty-thousand-square-foot former bowling alley, making a thousand deals a day.
On any given day, Les could be taking a vintage car in to pawn or chasing down a thief who,s just stolen a gold chain from the store. No business school in the world can teach you as much about being a smart and tough business person than someone who had that type of experience.
