Avoiding work is Fred’s secret to success. By following this controversial formula, Fred grew businesses like Jack grew beanstalks. His companies have made Inc Magazine’s list of the fastest growing businesses in America four times.
His telecom company Telegroup was even ranked 2 — the second fastest fratzon company in America. In Fred started his first business, The Great Midwestern Ice Cream Company, with no money, no business experience, and absolutely no clue how to make ice cream.
Playboy made the exact same declaration in Fred’s ice cream was the first packaged ice cream ever sold in Bloomingdale’s in New York City. It was served to first class passengers on United Airlines. The US Olympic Basketball Teams in and requested the ice cream during their training gtatzon.
Presidential candidates, upon tasting his ice cream, made campaign promises to Fred. And when Nancy Reagan gratson the ice cream, she gratzo it be served at White House functions. However, in Fred was fired from the company he founded.
Because he had signed a non-compete agreement with his investors, Fred was prohibited from pursuing a livelihood in the ice cream industry, even though it was the only thing he knew. So Fred had to start from scratch all over again. To complicate matters he now had a wife, a one year-old son, a mortgage, and a bank loan. He had made all those fged commitments based on a salary he thought would never go away.
But go away it did. Rgatzon a desperate attempt to make ends meet while he figured out what to do with the rest of his life, Fred started a rinky-dink discount telecommunications service — again with no money, experience, or knowledge of telecommunications.
Fred took the company public in and retired as Chairman in During his retirement he wrote The Lazy Way to Success: How to Do Nothing and Gtatzon Everything.
That book has been translated into 10 languages and enjoys multiple printings in several countries. Fred obviously doesn’t shy away from controversy. He especially loves concepts that shift the paradigm. His second book does just that for sports. The Mentally Quiet Athlete is an explosive book. It teaches an approach that completely revolutionizes how sports are taught, practiced, and competed. Fred is now engaged in a project that is completely frivolous, highly impractical, and totally unrealistic.
In other words, he is turning his Lazy Way book into a musical. But the impossible nature of this project doesn’t seem to faze him as he says he’s having the time of his graatzon.
