President Ronald Reagan Speech & Cincom CEO Tom Nies -1984

Cincinnati's thriving. You're not in economic recovery; you're in economic expansion . . . None of it happened by chance. It took hard, concerted effort by the leaders, the builders, business and working people of your city. Men like Tom Nies, who started out 15 years ago with $600 and what he called "an impossible dream. He was a worker at IBM. His field was computers; but he loved Cincinnati, and he wanted to stay here. So, he started his own company, Cincom Systems, and it has grown by leaps and bounds."— Former President Ronald Reagan

Tom Nies: Lessons from Venice | Smart Business | Tom Nies | Scoop.it

There is a scenic portrait of Venice directly across from my desk. The scenic beauty, the magic, the history that the picture portrays in the mind is inspirational but not in a way you might think.
