Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book passes on the values and philosophies that have fueled Ray Hickey's ascent to the top of his profession. His time-honored tenets for achieving success are interspersed with tales of adventures on the river and at sea, lessons from his days coaching Little League, and memories of his gutsy moves as an executive. As a boss, Hickey's personal work ethic and consideration of others inspired the respect, allegiance, and affection of employees and clients alike. He never forgot where he came from, nor considered himself above getting his hands dirty. Hickey reveals the secret to his meteoric rise through the company ranks, a strategy that flies in the face of current trends: work hard, do your best, and let your goal find you. The wisdom of Hickey's book is especially useful for younger readers. Much of the "common sense" Hickey disseminates (a handshake is a contract, the customer signs your paycheck, etc.) is not-so-common in these days of corporate corruption and questionable business practices.

About the Author

Ray Hickey is the former owner of Tidewater Barge Lines, the largest inland barge line west of the Mississippi. As the founder of the Ray Hickey Foundation, a non-profit organization that funds a wide variety of community projects, Hickey has become a beloved figure in the Pacific Northwest.
