As Good as Gold
The Chemistry of Life, Love, and Business
About the Book
Bob W. Killick, an organic chemist, shares his extraordinary journey from unemployment to unlikely entrepreneur in this inspiring memoir.
After losing his job and being told repeatedly he was too qualified to be hired, he came up with a creative solution — team up with his wife to buy, mainly on borrowed money, a fifty-year old decrepit chemical factory.
The venture meant getting up at five o’clock each morning and traveling across town to work with a team determined to build a multi-million dollar business in a cutthroat industry. Along the way, they developed environmentally-sound products and with sweat and tears obtained several international patents.
At the helm of the Victorian Chemical Company, he’d take a proactive approach to growing a business—never letting a good, clean joke get in the way of an international business deal.
Join Bob, his wife, and his team on an exciting ride that proves that you can achieve extraordinary business success while maintaining your integrity and adhering to Christian principles.
