His dream was to play baseball for the world famous New York Yankees, which eventually didn’tget past First Base, as after a military tour in Korea, he got involved in building a multi-million dollar business in all things: women’s shoes. But it didn’t stop there. The author of the popular book, The Crazy Life of a Kid From Brooklyn, which is full of humorous anecdotes and sales lessons, tells u that he owes his success to never pre-judging a sale and tells us a lot more about that next.
As stated, Bill’s childhood dream was to play baseball for the New York Yankees. He went on to get his bachelors degree in business from the University of Alabama, while playing baseball as often as time permitted. After his degree he served a term in the military in Korea. Afterward, he began working for a shoe company and eventually became the President of the Kitty Kelly Shoe Company running a chain of shoe stores while at the young age of 35.
His new book is best summed up by a recent review from one of his readers:
“When I read his book, I was very touched. His writing is clear, entertaining and funny. I learned so much more about that kid from Brooklyn, couldn’t put the book down. His crazy and beautiful life, his enthusiasm and the will power to keep going, even when anyone will feel that there is no way to keep going, is amazing.”
Bill is the President of the Marquesa Funding and Consulting Corp since 1970 and helps businesses get the funding they need starting at $1 million dollars.
