The Entrepreneur and Family Business Council invites our book lovers to lace up and join the EFBC Book Club as we discuss our next featured book, Phil Knight's Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of Nike.

The Nike swoosh is one of the most recognized brand icons of all time. But the man behind the brand is somewhat of an enigma. In a New York Times bestseller that is candid, humble, gutsy, and wry, Nike founder and CEO Phil Knight tells his story for the first time. The memoir begins with his crossroads moment when at 24, after backpacking around the world, he decided to take the unconventional path to start his own business, one that would be dynamic and different.

In this fascinating read, Knight shares the inside story of the company's early days as a fearless start-up and its evolution into one of the world's most iconic, game-changing, and profitable brands. Knight details the many risks and setbacks he faced as he chased his dream - along with his early triumphs. Above all, he recalls the formative relationships with his first partners and employees, a diverse group of misfits who became a tight-knit band of brothers. With a shared mission and a deep belief in the spirit of sport, they built a brand that changed everything.

Just Do It! Pick up your copy of Shoe Dog and join our host Private Vista on Wednesday, July 13 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM to connect and converse about Knight’s path to business success.
