It was a pleasure working with Kevin Anderson and his team—especially my developmental editor, Murphy Hooker. I sent them my initial manuscript that needed development and editing, and now the book is perfect.” 

William S. “Bill” Green, an entrepreneur and innovator, is known for taking small businesses and elevating them to lucrative heights over his impressive 40-year career. Green began his career by developing Interline Brands, Inc (formerly Wilmar Industries) from a flea market table to an industry-leading $630-million corporation. After acting as CEO at Interline for 25 years, he is now CEO for both Crestar Group of Companies and LendingOne. When not actively bootstrapping start-ups, he serves on the Foundation Board of Trustees of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and chairs other children’s needs-based charities. Bill is a regular contributor for Inc., and his articles can be accessed here.

In 2017, Green approached Kevin Anderson & Associates to assist in developing his manuscript, All In (Koehler Books, 2017). Containing the practical business advice that every entrepreneur needs, All In is told from the perspective of a man who has proven, without a doubt, what a person with focus, dedication, determination, and persistence can achieve. Designed to relay 101 real life lessons, Green seamlessly incorporates his own personal experiences to instruct his reader in meaningful and often humorous ways. Green draws clear lines for his reader from the raw beginning of a business idea through the milestones necessary for realization.
