About Barry Moltz:
Barry J. Moltz is a business consultant and acclaimed speaker who has encountered both success and failure in his business ventures. After selling his last business, he successfully founded an angel fund and angel investor group. He was formerly a member of the advisory board for the Angel Capital Education Foundation and was elected to the Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame.
Barry Moltz's TIE Keynote Topic, Bounce:
Business advocate, internationally touring public speaker and author Barry Moltz has an unusual key to achieving smashing success: gaining true business confidence by moving forward from any event, situation or outcome, good or bad. In his new book, BOUNCE!: Failure, Resiliency, and Confidence to Achieve Your Next Great Success, Moltz teaches that BOUNCE! is about developing the kind of true business confidence that prepares you for both failure and success.
Conventional business wisdom tells us that there is always something to learn from failure. Not true, says Barry Moltz. Sometimes it just stinks. Failure that offers no real learning value becomes a big jolt to the basic business belief system. Both success and failure are simply outcomes in lifecycle of business where repetition is inevitable and overall process matters far more than any single event or outcome. Moltz demonstrates that developing the resiliency to "bounce" through these cycles determines who ultimately will succeed.
This is a book about finding success as it comes to you.
BOUNCE! turns traditional business mantras on their heads and guides the reader with real-life examples, both Moltz’s own and that of other successful entrepreneurs and business executives.
