Curtis R. Nelson Shares 30 Years of Business Experience—Simplifying the Keys to Growing Any Business, Complete with Personalized Score Card

CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA—NOVEMBER 18, 2009—Entrepreneurs to seasoned business executives are the target for Curtis R. Nelson’s new book, The Recipe for Business Success. The book, now available online at, is a compilation of decades of proven business practice and theory into one, easy-to-follow “Recipe.” Filled with real-world stories that drive home the learning experience, The Recipe is designed to be a strategic analysis tool, applicable to the start-up or the Fortune 500® board room.

“Most business books focus on a single aspect of business. In my book, I focus on the importance of all ingredients and execution requirements in balance, based on my 30-plus years of starting and growing over 45 businesses,” said author, Curtis R. Nelson. “My book is guaranteed to invoke strategic thinking for any business leader and help them identify opportunities for improvement and growth,” Nelson added.

In The Recipe, readers will explore what it takes to validate their “Strategic Fit” in the market, and how to write usable business / strategic plans around that “Fit” that will drive success. Readers will also learn how to assemble a balanced and talented team, understand the definition and value of a true business leader, and identify the resources critical to business success. Unlike typical business books, readers will create a “Report Card” on their business “Recipe,” and walk away with actionable opportunities to improve.

The book retails for $25.00 in hardcover or $12.95 for a downloadable PDF. Both are currently available for purchase online at
