The story features a young entrepreneur who wants to discover how to be a successful, and in contrast, the Executive to the Minute, a successful entrepreneur who has developed an efficient method to be productive and deal with their employees.
The young executive travels around the world looking for inspiration from other executives, until he arrives with the Executive to the Minute.
