I Didn't Ask To Be Jimmy Hoffa

What would you do if you discovered fraud and corruption at your company? Confronting an injustice is not easy. Most people fear repercussions from the confrontation or "whistle-blowing." Very few are in the position to take on that fight. This excerpt is from the first time I was Chief Restructuring Officer. I oversaw a Tier One manufacturer that supplied an automotive company (OEM = "original equipment manufacturer"). We supplied parts to 50% of all of their factories in N. America. This story is about how I confronted one of the largest corporations in the world when I discovered that they were going to steal healthcare insurance and worker's compensation from a non-union shop. I gave them a lesson they would not forget.

Why I Wrote This Book

It would have been much easier to write a book about my happy, sunny days in the world of business. There were many of them. They were rewarding and fun. Who doesn't like succeeding? I instead chose to write a book that focused on all of the adversity I faced along the journey. I felt that the world was filled with many great success stories of entrepreneurs becoming fabulously wealthy but, there weren't many stories about the pain involved in starting, owning and managing a business. This is a book filled with countless mistakes, surprises and struggle. It is also a book that is filled with hope, clarity and lessons learned from all that I witnessed. My intent is to give you tools, guidance and inspiration that will help you manage through any adversity or crisis. I hope you enjoy the journey. Buckle up, because it's not for the timid. Best of fortune to you. Domenic
