Read this book! It's the little voice in your head you've being waiting for. Rich DeVos is such an inspiring entrepreneur, and Pat Williams does a wonderful job giving you the insights from those fortunate to have Rich as a friend, family or acquaintance. Once again full of simple business and life principles: honesty, integrity, solidarity, hope, believe! And Love.
Admittedly a mentee and admirer of DeVos, Pat Williams is Sr. Vice President of the Orlando Magic and author of the popular "How to Be Like..." series. In this fourth title, Williams and co-author Jim Denney dig deep into the goldmine of DeVos's life to present a book that is a treasure-trove of facts, anecdotes and life lessons to grow by. In story after inspiring story, we read of a man determined to succeed, but not in the winner-takes-all method we so often hear about. Unlike many "success" stories, How to Be Like Rich DeVos tells of a man who's spent his life sacrificing to help others, building teams, changing lives and giving the glory to God. Beginning with the Amway story and traveling into the Orlando Magic, his recent heart transplant and beyond, those who've known and loved Rich DeVos over the years are given voice in this book's almost endless stories. From his successes as well as his failures, readers learn the principles that have driven this amazing life-values that include having the courage to stand up and lead, willingness to take risks, building relationships that last, being a mentor for others, giving, loving your family and your country, and most of all, loving God.
