About the Author
The most important skill Dave Donelson learned as a journalist was how to ask questions and truly listen to the answers. That skill helped him in his sales career, too, and was even more important when he became an entrepreneur. Listening to other business owners talk about their successes, failures, experiments and tried-and-true tactics helped him not only avoid repeating their mistakes but encouraged him to persevere and try new strategies. The stories and advice of hundreds of small business owners and managers inspired the Dynamic Manager Guides.
