Thats why 77-year-old Truly Nolen who built his pest control business up from $5000 in 1955 to a 70-plus million dollar enterprise today says hes sharing his secrets to success in an adventure business book.
Nolen has woven a series of business philosophies called Trulyisms into his real-life adventure book, Truly Original (Collage Books), which begins with him sailing away from home from Miami to Baltimore at the age of 16.
The journey takes readers through several of Nolens failed business ventures like the old and rotten cruise boat he purchased at 17 that sank and the flower business that wilted away to life challenges such as polio and learning parts of the Torah for his Bar Mitzvah when he was 68.
The only event he didnt include was a sailing trip with Supreme Court judge Sandra Day OConnor about 35 years ago. He marvels, God, I forgot about that. She wasnt famous then.
