Jack Nadel has been an international entrepreneur for nearly seven decades—and has made a healthy profit every single one of those years. He founded, acquired, and operated more than a dozen companies worldwide that 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. Each one of his business transactions has been an adventure he’s loved.
From this broad and solid foundation of experience, Nadel authored a number of popular books including There’s No Business Like Your Bu$iness, How to Succeed in Business Without Lying, Cheating or Stealing, Cracking the Global Market and his latest book, The Evolution of an Entrepreneur. All were written with the purpose of assisting entrepreneurs with attaining greater business success. He also authored one novel, My Enemy, My Friend, set in the intriguing environment of international trade.
In addition to his commercial enterprises and writing career, Nadel has lectured at several colleges and universities, developed his own targeted thinking methodology for entrepreneurs called The Nadel Method, and for several years hosted his own television show, Out of the Box with Jack Nadel. Though insisting that he has retired, at age 89 Nadel—a decorated WWII veteran—continues to share his expertise and wisdom mentoring future business leaders and entrepreneurs.
Jack Nadel is a happy man who leads a robust life, savoring every moment. He lives with his wife Julie in Santa Barbara, CA, and enjoys actively supporting their ongoing philanthropic efforts through The Nadel Foundation and local community involvement.
