Growing Dreams

A novel easily guiding you through the adventures of business with the ultimate goal of success

Growing Dreams bookGROWING DREAMS is very, very, very, unique. It follows the example of the early 20th century authors who presented their books first in series form in the best magazines of that era. GROWING DREAMS was first presented as a series of articles in PRO and chronicles two young brothers, Oscar and Curtis, and their quest to own a prosperous professional landscape company. The series was so well received that it has prompted Paluch to compile the first novel ever written with a landscape company as the backdrop. GROWING DREAMS is full of content and practical ideas as it systematically introduces the concepts of ORGANIZATIONAL EXCITEMENT, a blueprint for every owner to use to ENERGIZE their company and team.
