'Big Things' #1 Bestseller in Business Personal Success on Amazon

Small Things Matter if You Want to Achieve BIG Things!

 "Big Things"— #1 Bestseller in Business Personal Success on Amazon

"An enlightening and extremely informative book!"

Susan Keefe, Midwest Book Review


West Bloomfield, MI – "It's the relentless attention to the "small beginnings" that will make all the difference" Wesley Berry's fresh flower business started in a small florist shop in Detroit some forty years ago, but he quickly propelled it to a $65 million-dollar international company with 30 franchises in five states and a customer base reaching 130 countries around the world. Now, he has written a book to teach others how he did it: Big Things Have Small Beginnings: Learn to Play in the Great Game. Using inspiring stories from his own experience, he strategically lays the groundwork for your own success in business—and in life.


"It's the little things," says Berry, "that make up the big goals you want to accomplish. "Pay attention to them, to those little details, and it will all come together. Broken down into manageable steps, nearly any goal is reachable"

Success didn't come easy for Berry, but quitting wasn't an option. "In business, every success I enjoyed was the result of a previous setback. Failure is only part of the Great Game," he says. "Some of my failures were my biggest blessings in disguise. I learned from them and went forward to better things"

Leadership is another key element in Berry's book. Borrowing from the minds of the greatest military strategists in the world and throughout history, Wesley writes a playbook to give you the upper hand in the battlefield: all laid out in small steps, which is exactly how he did it.


"Success is owed more to a sore thumb than a pretty one" When he stepped into his parent's florist business during the Detroit riots, there was no money for advertising, so he had to get creative. Berry learned to barter, and soon was offering flowers to several local radio and television stations in exchange for advertising spots. Then when the internet first came out, he learned how to use it, and that's really when his business took off.


"Jam packed with information from cover to cover, this book contains all the motivation, and advice anyone could need to succeed in their chosen business career"

Susan Keefe, Midwest Book Review

Five-star review


"Wise and warm counsel from a man who knows the steps, paths and little things that are the small beginnings that can blossom into success"

                                    Grady Harp, Amazon Hall of Fame Top 50 Reviewer

                                    Five-star review


With a mentor's heart and a voracious appetite to learn, Berry believes one of the best ways to win the Great Game is to study other leaders. "I've written down what I've learned through the years, and hope that it will help others. Leaning from somebody else's experience is a great way to educate yourself," says


Berry, who himself has looked for mentors throughout his career. In fact, one of the defining moments of his business career was an early-morning breakfast which turned into a life lesson.


In this book, Berry inspires, empowers and equips the reader with the tools that they need to win the Great Game, and succeed in whatever they aspire, in both business and in life. For anyone who is planning to start a business, is deeply enmeshed in one, or is just wanting to kick-start their life, this is the guide to get it done.
