Synopsis: The founders of the acclaimed Summit leadership event series tell the story of their unconventional path through the business world as twentysomethings stumbling toward success, sharing the unique lessons for thinking big and achieving improbable goals that they learned along the way.
In 2008, with no event production experience and two college degrees between the four of them, Elliott Bisnow, Jeff Rosenthal, Brett Leve, and Jeremy Schwartz became business partners and set out on a mission to build a global events company. With passion and tenacity, they began cold calling as many inspiring company founders as they could and tried to convince them to attend their first event. In the beginning, only nineteen people said yes.
Since then, they have grown Summit into a global community with events all over the world, hosting luminaries including Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, Jessica Alba, Shonda Rhimes, Brené Brown and Al Gore. And in 2013, the Summit founders acquired the largest ski resort in the United States, Powder Mountain, where they are building a mountain top town of the future, filled with events and programming 365 days a year.
In Make No Small Plans, they reveal the experiences that became the cornerstone lessons from their journey, along with teachings from some of the most inspiring entrepreneurs of our time, offering takeaways such as:
• No Idea Should Go Unspoken
• Don't Worry About Making Mistakes When You're Making History
• Reputations are Earned by the Drop and Lost by the Bucket
• You Don't Get Changes, You Take Them Like Interceptions
• When You Have the Opportunity, It's Always the Right Time
• Become a Favor-Economy Billionaire
Entertaining and empowering, Make No Small Plans shows that anyone can think big, and, with humility, a thirst for knowledge, and a talented team, we all can accomplish the impossible.
