What secrets can a former mob boss share about how to do legit business? Let’s have a sit-down and find out.

By age 24, charming mob boss Michael Franzese was one of the wealthiest people on Furtune magazine’s survey. As one of the rare people who quit the mob and lived to tell about it, Franzese has a unique perspective on how business is done. And one thing he noticed was that the way he made millions per week in business inside the mob can be applied to doing business outside the mob (minus the illegal part):

Mob Rule # 4; Be an Early Riser & Avoid Getting Killed in Your Pajamas

“Anyone who sells the mob short when it comes to its ingenuity, its ability to connect with people from all walks of life, and its substantial profit margins is simply kidding themselves.” This book promises a mob’s eye view of business that will change the way you see business forever.
