Nickisms are mostly anecdotal “words to live by” I have collected over the years. Some are perceived to be original, others I have picked up from friends. Where I give credit, I always do, even if it is only here I frist saw or heard the “ism”. Some of my acquaintances suggest my upbringing in rural North Carolina lay the groundwork of my “ism” as only a colloquialism of a “red neck”. Could be but I’ll let you be the judge of that. The Nickisms presented herein are given as “business truths” which will allow you to develop the core foundation for the successful management of your business. I hope you find a grain or two of truth, humor, and assistance in this book. Book 2: Nickisms II: The Book Everyone Should Write.
