In Steven Schussler’s book, It’s A Jungle In There, Chapter 26 talks about bridges and crossing them a second time. At some point in your entrepreneurial life (maybe at many points) someboby is going to disappoint you or, possibly, take advantage of you. When this happens, should you just write this person off and decide to work with him again? To learn more about what Steven has to share on this topic in his book go to It’s A Jungle In There to order your autographed copy.
Chapter 20 of It’s A Jungle In There by Steven Schussler is about PEOPLE. Do you care about the feelings and needs of others and take active steps to help them achieve their personal goals? Think back for a moment and identify someone you really respect — somebody for whom, if he asked you to go to the ends of the Earth, you would make the trip. Chances are this somebody is a person who cared about you. Giving others the sense you care about them is one of the most important elements when it comes to make a positive impression on them. This and many more Inspiring Lessons, Hard-Won Insights and Other Acts of Entrepreneurial Daring are written in Steven Schussler’s book “It’s A Jungle In There”.

Steven Schussler and his team at Schussler Creative donated a 45 ft. semi-trailer brimming with over 700 toys to Neighborhood House, a multi-service agency that helps low-income families. A group of executive volunteers from U.S. Bank joined the team to transfer the gifts from one trailer to the other. Steven writes about giving back and philanthropy in Chapter 28 of his book “It’s A Jungle In There“. “Giving and helping others is what makes a community stronger. We are proud we were able to form a strategic alliance with Neighborhood House and brighten the spirits and homes of many needy children this Holiday Season.” Steven Schussler
Dear Mr. Steve Schussler,
My name is Dillon Nicely; I am currently 20 years old and am presently living in Newport Beach, California. Lately I’ve had trouble focusing and getting through classes at school. So I recently stopped going and have been trying to find a different approach or career I can follow through with. I have also been slacking at work as well and not performing to the best of my capabilities. My dream is to be my own boss like yourself and run my own business if possible. As of lately I’ve been really into Entrepreneur, Inc., and other magazines/books that give knowledgeable information regarding business. I came across your book It’s a Jungle in There and read the first few chapters. I got hooked immediately. It has truly given me a bigger motivation and willingness to do more with my ideas. Also I’ve turned around my performance at work and just got a promotion. I know that you should be driven yourself to get where you want. But there’s sometimes where you need some encouragement or insight from another man who made it like yourself. That’s what I loved about your book and the way you handled most situations. I personally just wanted to give you my thoughts on the book and what you’ve inspired me to do. I’m definitely going to recommend this book to others. I hope that you will be able to speak out in California sometime soon so that I could have a chance to hear you in person or even meet you. If not, thank you and hope you succeed in your next creative innovations.
Wish you the best,
Chapter 15 of my book, “It’s A Jungle In There” Inspiring Lessons, Hard-Won Insights, and Other Acts of Entrepreneurial Daring1

The offices of Schussler Creative are located in a dull, nondescript Golden Valley industrial park, near businesses that deal in the mundanities of insurance claims and automotive parts. But inside, Schussler Creative has the energy of a Silicon Valley startup. On the day I visited, I could hardly find a seat in the reception area for the assemblage of model outboard motors, revolving Ferris wheels, and Disney characters dressed in Star Wars garb. So I leaned against a ledge where a cloak-wrapped Mickey aimed his light saber at Donald Duck, who had been frozen, Han Solo-style, in a carbonite block.
All this, I soon learned, was merely a warm-up for the contents of Schussler’s adjacent warehouse. A staff member led me to the office’s utilitarian kitchenette where muffled tribal music could be heard playing behind a set of double doors. The staffer held a remote control, and I noticed that one of the buttons was labeled “FOG.” Anticipation built as it does when the line for a Disney ride inches forward: What sort of imaginary world lay beyond?

“Many years ago, the young man in the Superman costume and I worked in the radio business together. I knew then how special he was and his remarkable career has proved me right. And now he has written an “how to do it” in an intense, helpful, instructive book that is also great fun to read.” Sid Levin
