The Duxbury, Massachusetts resident’s book has reached #1 New Release in Business Ethics on Amazon

Duxbury, MA— July 19, 2019In his new book,mortgage industry consultant turned writer Peter Milewski implores financial institutions to “do the right thing” and sounds a clear warning that financial institutions are forgetting the lessons learned during the financial crises of the past decade.  

 “I am worried that businesses and individuals have failed to learn or have quickly and conveniently forgotten what caused the most recent collapse of the real estate and mortgage lending industries,” Milewski said.

Feel Good and Do Well by Doing Good cautions against transaction-centric business plans and proposes that a business culture focused on corporate social responsibility can be the foundation for business success as well as personal happiness. 

Industry Examples

Milewski’s book tells stories of good and bad companies that have succeeded or failed based on their leadership focus. His real-life examples were culled from his fifty-year career in banking, mortgage lending, and public finance. Milewski includes accounts of very successful CEOs and companies as well as individuals who have thrived and found fulfillment in the way they conduct business and live their lives. His book also explores the reasons behind high-profile corporate failures like Countrywide Funding, Lehman Brothers, and Enron.

Milewski notes.  “In this book I share my belief that both corporate success and personal happiness are linked to a strong commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of customers, employees, business partners, and community they serve.”
