About The Book: 

In this candid and riveting narrative, for the first time, Nike founder and CEO Phil Knight share the internal story of the company’s early days as an intrepid start-up and its advancement into one of the world’s most iconic, game-changing, and profitable brands.

In 1962, fresh out of business school, Phil Knight rented $50 from his father and established a company with a modest mission: import high-quality, low-cost athletic shoes from Japan. Selling the shoes from the closet of his lime-green Plymouth Valiant, Knight grossed $8,000 his first year. Today, Nike’s annual sales top $30 billion. In a duration of startups, Nike is the ne plus ultra of all startups, and the swoosh has become a revolutionary, globe-spanning icon, one of the most universal and recognizable symbols in the world today. But Knight, the man behind the swoosh, has always continued a mystery. Now, for the first time, in a narrative that is candid, humble, gutsy, and wry, he warns his story, commencing with his crossroads moment. At 24, after backpacking around the world, he agreed to take the unusual path, to start his own business, a business that would be vibrant, different.

Knight details the various risks and daunting obstacles that stood between him and his dream—along with his early victories. Above all, he remembers the constructive partnerships with his first partners and employees, a ragtag group of misfits and seekers who became a tight-knit club of brothers. Together, harnessing the transcendent power of a shared goal, and a deep belief in the spirit of recreation, they built a brand that changed everything.

My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. Email emutemple@gmail.com Phone/WhatsApp +2347012841542.

I'm so happy to share this with you that can read / see this now. When I started trading binary and forex a few months ago, I really didn't have the necessary tools to trade and I lost a lot until I met Pablo Martinez who taught me all about market psychology as he managed my account for me. Today I am grateful to him for his great offer and help because it really changed my financial situation with an investment capital of $1500 and now I'm earning around $35,500 - $30,000 profits per week. Here is his WhatsApp no: +44 7520 636249 or his email address: pm7234029@gmail.com Https://www.facebook.com/PM-Fast-Trade-104912912155335/

I saw many people recommending the services of XAP Credit Solution and I am lacking much knowledge about how to better my credit score. I am 41 and have made a couple of poor choices in the past. I'm desperate to have my kids grow up in a home of our own. I needed help that would lead in that direction and XAP came highly recommended. Yes Xapcreditsolution at gmail dot com didn't disappoint, he fixed my credit and raised the score to a very high score of about 812 from low 500s. I was able to get my first house. Also help to recover fund. Thanks to XAP and his team.

My scores were at low 600's and I had few negatives and judgements. I have 14 credit cards, almost 70K in credit and I was curious - what is the road to an 800 credit score? Someone reliable recommended XAP Credit Solution on reddit and I’m grateful I wasn’t adamant in yielding to his advice. I'm already a homeowner as it is today. I had 1 late payment from 1 year and 10 months ago which was marked as paid on time. I am happy to report I finally hit 800 on two reports (802 on Equifax, 790 Transunion and Experian 800) and the judgement is no longer on my report. The Chex system has been fixed as well. Hit XAP up via +1 (320) 200-9409 or email xapcreditsolution@gmail.com. Goodluck!
