Moira Vetter didn’t get serious about business until the second grade. That’s when she started running the register in her father’s pharmacy and got a first hand look at the rise and fall of an entrepreneurial venture.
Today she is the founder and CEO of Modo Modo Agency, an award-winning, business-to-business marketing firm that has won over 100 awards in its first 5 years. Modo Modo Agency, Moira’s second entrepreneurial venture, won the #2 spot in the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 2010 Fastest Growing Women-Owned Firms ranking. The firm has offices in Atlanta and Los Angeles.
Moira began her professional career 25 years ago on the client side in technology and healthcare before moving to the agency world, working in several well-known national firms. In her career she has helped more than 170 businesses with well over 200 products and services define, launch, grow and even divest of their ventures.
She serves on the Executive Advisory Board and is Past President of the Atlanta Chapter of the America Marketing Association. She sits on the board of the Oxford Center for Entrepreneurs and is a member of the Leadership Atlanta Class of 2013. Moira also serves on the Georgia Department of Education’s Marketing Cluster to help develop marketing curriculum for Georgia High School students.

Moira commits the resources of Modo Modo Agency to a variety of non-profit efforts and service projects. With her DoGooder program, she quarterly closes Modo Modo Agency for a full day and takes the staff off-site to serve their chosen charity.

In the past, DoGooders have done service for Open Hand Atlanta, the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge, The Center for Self-Sufficiency/Café 458, Uplift Internationale, the Global Soap Project, homestretch and Books for Africa.

For anyone passionate about entrepreneurship, either being the entrepreneur, working for one or introducing an entrepreneurial spirit into their organization, you need this book! Aside from being a brilliantly designed and created book, its full of great advice and quotes that will inspire you to grab ahold of your dreams.
It's also very affordable, so everyone should pick this book up and spend some time with it. And I literally read it in one day - its that good. In fact, I bought several extra copies to pass out to friends.
I rank it right up there with my favorite business books of all time.
-Jeff Hilimire, President & Chief Digital Officer, Engauge
I love the creativity of Moira Vetter's book. The use of focused messaging, design elements, and good advice for an entrepreneur makes an engaging read. It would also be terrific for the team working around the entrepreneur to fully understand the motivations, desires, and passion.
-Maria Bothwell, President, Sparks Grove
After reading it cover to cover, I am a believer that this is how you capture the unlimited power of entrepreneurship! Moira Vetter's book is a must read for ALL ENTREPRENEURS!!! Anyone who is considering starting a business, currently leading a business, revitalizing a mature business or exiting a business (before they go on to their next AdVenture) need to read this book. I flipped through it one afternoon and found myself three hours later planning on how many I needed to order to send out to my friends and business associates. Locally, this book teaches you how to become an entrepreneur or to inspire an entrepreneurial mindset to boost any stage business. Globally, this book is about how this nation can launch thousands more entrepreneurs for the future. The author shares how we need to master what she calls the "emotional mechanics" to succeed and win. Awesome book!

This is a great book for someone who's interested in starting a business and wants to know what it takes. I've been involved with two start ups now and can tell you her advice is spot on. It's also cleverly laid out in a way that makes it easy to consume. I read it cover to cover in about 3 hours. I actually liked it so much I blogged about it.
-Donovan Panone, Partner/CMO, X3 Sports
This is one of those easy to read in a short time books that every business person needs to purchase and read, and then read again. Thinking outside the box is the key to the Entrepreneur success and this books gets you thinking. The Author's "THE SEVEN ATTRIBUTES OF ENTREPRENEURS" is right on target. I'm so impressed with Moira's book that I'm going to order one for my kids and my clients.
