Napoleon Hill (October 26, 1883 – November 8, 1970) was an American author who was one of the earliest producers of the modern genre of personal-success literature. He is widely considered to be one of the great writers on success. His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich (1937), is one of the best-selling books of all time (at the time of Hill’s death in 1970, Think and Grow Rich had sold 20 million copies). Hill’s works examined the power of personal beliefs, and the role they play in personal success. He became an advisor to President Franklin D. Roosevelt from 1933 to 1936. “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve” is one of Hill’s hallmark expressions. How achievement actually occurs, and a formula for it that puts success in reach of the average person, were the focal points of Hill’s books.
One of my favourite writers, with one of his best quotes:
a goal is a dream with a deadline

Although probably 90% of the population never reads a business books, we created a list of personal-success books which are worth reading. There are hundreds of success book but at Maripositas we think this is the top 25. We tried not to focus on one theme but instead we kept the spectrum as wide as possible.

The CGC offers you the freedom to find that one thing. The freedom to explore the latest technologies, to learn about cutting-edge resources available to you, the freedom to view the newest products and varieties at your leisure. Imagine the freedom to focus on helping your business flourish. Sound impossible?
