The Entrepreneurial Attitude
In the JA Centennial book “The Entrepreneurial Attitude”, author Larry Farrell reveals his latest research on the four fundamental practices of the world's greatest entrepreneurs, and then brings those proven practices to life through interviews with 70 high-achieving JA alumni across 35 countries.
“The number one educational institution in the world for developing successful entrepreneurs, CEOs, and professional leaders is JA Worldwide. (…) You won’t find any other organization, anywhere in the world, that has produced so many entrepreneurial leaders.
Founded in 1918 by the chairman of AT&T and a few of his peers, JA has become one of the largest nongovernmental educational organizations in the world with more than 100 million alumni alive today and untold millions more since its founding.”
Larry Farrell, “The Entrepreneurial Attitude: Lessons from Junior Achievement's 100 Years of Developing Young Entrepreneurs”, New York: McGraw-Hill, 2018
