by Jerry Treece
How do you define success? A great job, lots of money, a nice house with a sleek-looking black car in the garage?
Yes, those are all parts of success, says Jerry Treece, author of this book, executive with Walgreen’s for over thirty years and retired president and CEO of Super D Drugstores and Third Party Solutions. But more important is the development of your character. Treece says, “I want you to be successful, but I want you to get there by being a good, caring person with high integrity.” Read this book, take his words to heart, and you will find out “…how to have true wealth by learning what really matters.”
My father [Kemmons Wilson] would be very pleased that many principles that guided him have also resonated with Jerry over the course of his career. – Spence Wilson
