“Big Things Have Small Beginnings” by Wes Berry ( is an inspiring book for anyone who runs a business or who wants to succeed in today’s competitive business environment.

Berry brings to light the oft-forgotten story of Army Lieutenant Andrew Summers Rowan, given an almost impossible mission to complete by President McKinley, first written about in a book by Elbert Hubbard called “A Message to Garcia”.   A sense of personal responsibility is the key to success in any business endeavor, but one that Berry notes is extremely lacking in today’s business world which seems to be all about excuses for not getting the job done.   The world needs more “Rowans” and this book offers a valuable guide to determining how well you or your employees or prospective hires measure up to Lt. Rowan. No surprise that Rowan did in fact accomplish his dangerous mission, despite all of the obstacles he encountered in the depth of the jungle.
