The book starts with the premise that there is never a perfect time to start a business. All you need to do is to embrace the challenge of starting a business, and be prepared for everything that comes with it. You may have heard that about 90% of new businesses fail, and the book explains that those businesses failed not because of poorly written business plans, but because the owners “don’t prepare themselves for the real world of business.”.

Donors may make initial donations and stay connected with the university through athletics before expanding their gifts to other CU programs.But Bohn said he had several measures in place to steadily grow athletics donations and was stopped short.”You don’t just jump to that level; you have to grow donations,” he said.His “sustainable excellence” fundraising plan had significant donations in the queue, he said. He also implemented a donor seat tax in basketball that brought $400,000 in annual revenue.
