Dear Boris,
Please accept my sincere gratitude for the wonderful trip and accommodations in Florida. It was great to get the opportunity to get to know you and the things you like doing. It was the experience of a lifetime. I have always wanted to take a cruise to the Florida Keys. Diving a coral reef has always been a goal since I was little and watched Jacque Cousteau on television. The weather conditions and visibility were ideal; it doesn’t get any better than they were. Little Palm Island was such an unexpected treat. It reminded me of the show, “Fantasy Island”. I kept expecting Tattoo to run out and yell, “De Boat, De boat”, when the classic Chris Craft came in with a new load of guests. Being “all alone” out at sea was really neat as well. It was wonderful to have the company of you and your lovely daughter for the dream vacation in the Keys. I am forever at your service should you need anything I can provide. I am always available should you need a hand with your boat electronics and such here in Minnesota. I will treasure the memories of the Keys and bring them with me on my upcoming deployment to Al Assad, Iraq.
Sincerely,
SPC. David B. Reker

Dear Boris, I will admit, I wasn't sure what Croatia would look like, and when I pictured Croatia I pictured a torn Eastern European state. But how wrong I was, my experience in Croatia was eye opening to say at least. I learned of the rich culture and history Croatia has. Also I had an hospitality of its people. Few man are willing to take a friend from another country and quarter, feed, and allow them to live in luxury, let alone allowing an entire family experience your kindness. Thank you so much for allowing us to dine with you in some of the finest restaurants Croatia had to offer, for your careful, and wonderful planning of activities we should partake in. Where we would be staying, allowing us to live in your own houses as well as driving yourown car. Most of all, thank you for showing me what a wonderful country Croatia is and making it a memory I will never forget. I'm not sure I will ever be able to repay you for the gratuities. Regardless thank you, and I will forever remember your gift to me, and my family. Sincerely, Tyler Peterson

Dear Boris,

It was great to have met you at Cambridge a couple of weeks ago during 
the leadership seminar. As it is always the case when one travels or 
takes vacation, there are lots of things to do when you go back to the 
office. Nevertheless, I assured myself enough time to read your book 
which I finished last night.

I liked it very much. I think it is an "All you wanted to know about 
entrepreneurship and were afraid to ask". Moreover, I feel it is one 
of the best and more enjoyable management books I ever read. I 
identified myself with what you wrote and did in terms of a clear 
vision, honesty, hard work, hands on, putting people first, customer 
service, focus, execution and good common sense. Thank you for letting 
me have it.

Our offer to have you visit our University is still there. I would 
certainly like to have you tell your story to our students as part of 
our effort to motivate them to go out and start their own business and 
generate jobs, rather than look for a job.

Best,

Luis F. Velez

Dear Boris,

Congratulations on being named as one of nine small business success stories in 2006 by Twin Cities Business publications. I read your article with interest.

First, I live in the White Bear/Mahtomedi area, and I love it. Second, I really enjoyed the button you were wearing in the photograph "I Love Rust". It caught my eye, as that represents the essence of my business.

Dear Boris, It's Nick from Polar in White Bear Lake. Its been a while since we last spoke, You inspired me with your story of how you have become who you are today, and I myself have taken some major steps towards my goals of success in business. I was checking my emails when I decided to check out your web page again and came across this comment page. Not quite sure if you check this or will ever be able to answer back knowing you are very busy. I just wanted to let you know I enjoyed reading your book, and it is an inspiration to all hardworking men with the desire to see a positive change in this world. Thanks again for the opportunity to do business with you. I look forward to the next time we may speak again. I remember you mentioned an office located in my hometown of Pusan, South Korea, and you also speak of your business relations in your book;If you ever need an open-minded Korean/English speaking business associate, contact me. It was a pleasure doing business with you. Enjoy your Holiday season my friend and Take care! Nicholas Lee NickLeeRX8@hotmail.com

Dear Boris,
again, many thanks for your great hospitality! i really enjoyed it and i learned a lot about quality and that it is taken serious in your company and that's what counts and makes good products. i was really impressed by the very good organisation. your company has really the prospects to become one of the top 100 in the world, even though it is already one of the tops in the field of corrosion protection.
i look forward to further prolific cooperation.
many greetings from germany

Hello Mr. Miksic, Much time has passed since we were last in contact. I hope you and your family are well. Many thanks to you and the staff for the package including the DVD and material. It's very nice how the campaign team has kept in touch. It was a pleasure canvassing for you in Ontario. But I am saddened by the lack of voter turnout. Many of us here still have very high hopes for you and if there is anything we can do to help, please let us know. The newspaper The Croatian Chronicle has been a major supporter and I am wondering if Matica magazine has written about you? Please let us know. It may take more time, but you have to eventually be chosen in a major role to shape Croatian politics. Things can't remain as they are. A number of my friends who are former soldiers are extremely upset and feel helpless. People need a wake up call back home and abroad! Many thanks and let me know if you need further assistance abroad. All the best, Erica Zlomislic

Dear Boris,
A simple thank you hardly expresses my sincere appreciation for your generous efforts to bring the super Zagreb dancers to Duluth, MN, and the Twin Cities. I have been to countless performances in our country and in Croatia. None can compare to this authentic group. Being a true Blooded Croatian I plan my tamburitza music at home and in my car.
May God bless you and your family and once again - "Fala Lijepa"

Sincerely,

It's a story of business savvy and risk taking that will arouse the entrepreneurial spirit in every reader.

"When he arrived in the United States, Boris Miksic brought along energy, intelligence and determination. But also a dream. He was the Croatian gift to America. Today, as a successful entrepreneur, he is the American gift to Croatia."

— Governor Rudy Perpich
