About the Book:  Entrepreneurs + Mentors = Success: 22 Convincing Stories, $14.95 Softcover.  How do entrepreneurs survive?  How do they thrive?  This book by Kansas City entrepreneur Barnett C. Helzberg, Jr., with Deborah Shouse will show why mentoring is the way.  Here are 22 actual case studies of resilient people who grew their companies in part through the help of nurturing mentors participating in Helzberg's Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program (HEMP).  A kitchen soap maker who is now a large factory owner, a mismatched button customer who becomes an eco-friendly dry cleaner.  How one's labors of law turned to labors of love at a culinary institute.  You will learn not by rules or truisms but by the missteps and triumphs of these 22 lifelong learners.  Through careful mentor matching and good luck, the right people nourished each other and the organization.
