Short company description:
“The BS Dictionary: Uncovering the Origins and True Meanings of Business Speak” was published in 2020 and soon garnered rave reviews. Within a few weeks of release it rose to the top 1% of all books sold on Amazon — a platform with about 3 million book titles available for sale. In October 2022, co-author, Bob Wiltfong, was invited to Vienna, Austria to deliver a TEDx Talk on business speak. That presentation was later spotlighted on the main page of TEDx’s YouTube channel and has received tens of thousands of views since debuting in late March of this year. Bob will be going back to Vienna again in October to be a keynote speaker on business speak at an international HR summit.
How do you define success?
It’s not what you gather in life. It’s what you leave behind. Kindness, empathy, service to others, love. That’s a successful life to me.
What are your biggest goals in the next 12 Months for your business?
My co-author, Tim Ito, and I are working on a second volume of The BS Dictionary right now. 12 months from now, we would would like to have a literary agent and a publisher for that project.
