With more than 1.3 billion people spread over the world’s third largest country, the local business culture varies greatly from region to region, with wide differences in practices, attitudes and traditions.

Regardless of the industry or size of business, introductions, connections and relationships, known as guanxi, continue to be very important.

Following the pack and doing what you are told may get you a job and even a promotion, but it won’t lead to real success.

Entrepreneur Arthur Wylie, who made his first million by 26, has conquered the worlds of finance, real estate, and entertainment with more than $50 million in deals brokered and almost half a billion in assets and transactions under management. He has several subsidiaries that have diversified into film development, consulting, venture capital, speaking engagements, celebrity events, book publishing, technology, philanthropy, and real estate ventures internationally.

In Only the Crazy and Fearless Win BIG!, he shares a little secret that few books discuss—to win big you have to be fearless and, sometimes, even a little crazy.

Wylie outlines real-world examples from some of history and present-day’s most well-known names and everyday entrepreneurs in every industry, profession, and segment of the economy. Only the Crazy and Fearless Win BIG! shows how their decisions raised eyebrows, dropped jaws, and met resistance—yet proved to be right.

A few crazy and fearless decisions that led to victory and success, to fame and respect:

• Dominate with Class: Mexican Billionaire and world’s richest man, Carlos Slim, shows how to dominate a market to empower others
• Being Fearless: CEO Steve Jobs is fired from Apple
• Passion: Sara Blakely used what she hated to become successful in an untapped market
• People Power: Henry Ford pays his workers double the industry average
• Relentless: Richard Branson pushes through obstacles and makes billions
• How Crazy: Intern-now-CEO Sean Combs's $300 Million Clothing line beats out his entertainment business

Through Wylie’s experience and guidance, he weaves together the lessons of these stories and more to share what it means to your life, wealth, career and business.

Today, India boasts a sophisticated industrial and manufacturing base, a rapidly expanding service sector, a huge pool of skilled, low-to-moderate-cost workers including professional managers, and an established free-market system. India has capitalized on its large, well-educated, English-speaking workforce to become a major exporter of information technology services and software professionals.

Yet this is only one dimension of India’s intriguing one billion plus people. In contrast more than 200 million people still live on less than one dollar per day. It’s this kind of economic and social disparity that still marks the business cultural landscape, which is a reflection of the country’s extremes. To understand today’s Indian business environment, it’s essential to understand the local culture.

How do businesses evaluate world economies; what are developed and developing economies and how do they differ; and, how do professionals evaluate the expanding set of emerging-market countries, which started with the BRIC countries (i.e., Brazil, Russia, India, and China) and has now expanded to include twenty-eight countries?

Effective global managers need to be able to identify the markets that offer the best opportunities for their products and services. Savvy global managers realize that to be effective in a country, they need to know its recent political, economic, and social history. This helps them evaluate not only the current business opportunity, but also the risk of political, economic, and social changes that can impact their business.

bWise: Global Economies explores how we think about economic classifications for countries in a constantly evolving world -- as well as offer practical tips for global professionals to identify and monitor the expanding group of emerging markets for the best opportunities for their products and services.

Understand in greater detail how globalization is impacting the U.S., the European Union, Japan, Brazil, Russia, India, China, the U.A.E, South Africa and other countries in Africa and the Middle East.
