Jack Nadel, age 92, has been a successful international entrepreneur for nearly seven decades and is an award-winning author, entrepreneur and philanthropist who has been featured in Entrepreneur, Forbes and Fox Business media outlets among many others. He is also an active Huffington Post contributor. This Great Depression-era individual has gone from having almost nothing to being recognized by both President Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan and considered one of the nation’s top current thought leaders regarding veteran entrepreneurship by the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Veterans Business Development. He’s founded, acquired, and operated more than a dozen companies worldwide that have produced hundreds of new products, thousands of jobs, and millions of dollars in profits, including Jack Nadel International, a global leader in the specialty advertising and marketing industry. Jack is also a decorated WWII veteran, having flown 27 missions in a B-29 Bomber over Japan as a combat navigator and radar bombardier. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and Air Medal with four Oak Leaf Clusters and the Presidential Unit Citation. In 1988, after many years of doing business overseas in Asia, President Reagan’s office contacted Jack to join an important Presidential Trade Mission to Japan to foster better trade relations. From this broad and solid foundation of experience, he’s authored a number of popular business books including his latest, The Evolution of an Entrepreneur, winner of five Global Ebook Awards including three Gold Awards for Best in Business, Leadership and Careers/Employment. Written with the purpose of assisting entrepreneurs with methodology and tips to greatly reduce the risk of failure and attaining greater success, it has received extremely positive feedback from veteran groups, educators, fellow business authors and entrepreneurs alike. He is also a featured mentor on Thrive15, with 16 online training courses available. Jack is an inspiring example of American and global entrepreneurship and diplomacy through commerce, and despite his advanced age, it’s his mission in life to pay it forward to the next generation of entrepreneurs by passing on his insights. He firmly believes that helping entrepreneurs and fostering greater entrepreneurship globally will help us all, promoting peace and prosperity.
