You'll never fully appreciate what the word "free" in free enterprise means until it has been taken from you. I know, because in 1959 my father was a successful businessman in Cuba worth more than $20 million. When Fidel Castro and his communist government took over the country, my parents were forced to escape overnight with just the clothes on their backs. I tell you this because I see millions of my fellow Americans taking free enterprise for granted! And it breaks my heart! The sad truth is, Americans have conditioned themselves to believe in a movement almost as dangerous as Communism. I call it Job-ism. Under Communism, the government takes away your freedom and forces you to depend on them for all your basic needs. Under Job-ism, you voluntarily give away your freedom in exchange for a weekly paycheck. That's why I've written this book to challenge the dissatisfied employees of America to own their own lives again by owning their own business... never again having to worry about a boss looking over their shoulders!
