Gopher-preneur book of the month, Jun'05, The Making of a Blockbuster : How Wayne Huizenga Built a Sports and Entertainment Empire from Trash, Grit, and Videotape
by Gail DeGeorge



How often have you dreamed of creating a nation wide lawn care company? How often have you tried to create a plan to expand your own operation by buying other similar companies? Did you have a difficult time trying to figure out how to do this? Wayne Huizenga was able to do this with the garbage collection industry. He consolidated many small mom and pop businesses and created Waste Management. He sold off Waste Managagement and was on the hunt to create his next empire when he bought a few video stores. Wayne turned these few video stores into a $4 billion entertainment conglomerate called BlockBuster.
What do you do for fun when you have learned the ability to create very large companies like Wayne has? You buy the Miami Dolphins football team, the Florida Marlins baseball team, and the Florida Panthers hockey club.
Could you do this? Yes you can! Read how he did it and go out and do it too!
