How They Did It is the culmination of inspiration and dedication from many people. The book was not possible without their support and assistance.

This book started with a thought. I was sitting in the SeaTac airport in Seattle waiting to fly home to Chicago. I had picked up a book of inspiring quotes and then started wondering if anyone had ever published advice from great company founders as a simple book of quotes. I would love to know how they did it, how they hit their home runs, especially the great company founders around me in the Midwest.
