An often overlooked secret to creating wealth as a business owner has little to do with actually running the business. Marketing, customer service, quality products, and more are required to make a business successful...but when it comes to creating real and lasting wealth, there's a secret formula that all business owners have access to but not all realize. As both a small business lender and a small business owner himself, Chris Hurn has a bird's eye view of how businesses create wealth, as well as an in-the-trenches perspective on the habits and thought processes of successful entrepreneurs.   In The Entrepreneur's Secret to Creating Wealth, Chris unlocks the secret of how small business owners can create wealth and explains the myriad decisions that must be made along the way. Plenty of books describe how entrepreneurs can generate new ideas or keep employees happy. But no other business book outlines in such detail -- or with such authority -- how to actually develop the wealth behind the business.
