In Crossing The Road To Entrepreneurship, Bert L. Wolstein, master entrepreneur, draws from decades of experience in the commercial real estate development industry to offer readers valuable lessons on how to start, grow, and maintain successful businesses.

In this intimate look at his life, Bart Wolstein shares how he reacted to pivotal moments in his life, giving readers valuable insights into handling their own entrepreneurial ventures. He shows how his roll-up-your-sleeve work ethic allowed him to succeed even when others didn’t see his vision, and worse yet, expected him to fail.
