All of what we are able to do here in Eau Claire is from your faith in what Anna and I have proposed for capital and repairs, and the people seeing your commitment. And your commitment on spending the money to accomplish these great things here, to make this a world class production facility.

Thank You Boris

Dear Boris and Inez.

Thanks for a well organized sales meeting and for your hospitality during our Croatian visit.

We had fun, learned a lot, eat and drunk lot from the Croatian cuisine and connected with other Cortec distributors from all over the world.

Your birthday party was really something extra.

Take care!

I am glad to hear that Munchkin is safe and you are all well in South Sea's Plantation... My father is a super hero, he has also saved me when I almost drowned in Jamaica when I was very small... He's the best!!!

Warmest Regards,


Forgot to tell You, Munchkin fell from the boat, while we got some stuff from the house for our trip. When Boris went back to Heidi our Munchkin was not aboard. He checked all areas inside, the water and the backyard. No trace of her...suddenly a sqeek from the seawall...her last paddles to land...he got her by the neck, last moment pulling her to shore...she has not a sratch...but Boris has a bloody knee. Family o.k., and now relaxing in South Seas Plantation.

Good day, Ines

We are delighted to support Cortec growth with the $1MM equipment loan. Thank you. I finished the American Dream book you gave me over the summer after the Company tour. I was impressed how much energy you put into the political campaign in your home country ,and I believe a strong contest helps build the system, in any event.

Safe travels. Mike mcg.

Personally Boris I cannot thank you enough for your support during my career. It is so exciting to be involved in Cortec at this point in our growth.

I don't know what to say other than thank you.

Dear Anna, Boris, Dario, Margarita,

I know that we are a bit behind the ordinary time for saying thankful words to you for the opportunity to visit you and have so many meetings, receive so much useful information, but our schedule was so tight after we had returned to Moscow that we could not make this earlier. Cortec Rus is a small company in a sense that the work we do requires not only the commitment as such, but also getting so many minor details placed right on time.

We learned a lot while we were at Cortec Headquarters. We learned that we are not alone, that we have so many friends and that we can go forward and reach the goals that we couldn’t have had before we visited you. And this is not only as regards the volume of sales, this is about connecting the dots. Before we went to Cortec headquarters in September and met with you we did not know how many friends we would have and how much experience we could share. We can’t connect the dots looking forward, we can only connect them, looking backwards.

Thank you very much


Anton Shemyakin and Andrey Shargin

A lovely arrangement of flowers arrived yesterday to help me celebrate my 80'th birthday with wishes from my Cortec Family. While they are beautiful and deeply appreciated, I am honored and proud to still be considered a member of Cortec. Caring for one another makes a Family strong, and that's what makes Cortec such a great and successful organization.

Best wishes to All that you too may reach another milestone in health and happiness!

Hallo Untersschwester, news are your sister came up for some new product needed to save our oceans and our fish we like to eat. So my solution was to clean up the mess that is out there for years and no!! one wants to admit it is a real food chain problem. So being married to one of the smartest men and a real scientist of knowhow and at heart he had all the upbeat to keep on to come up with a product to keep our planet and us people happy and safe to enjoy our lives. I love him so much!

Boris & Anna,
Thank you so very much for the extra check! The letter meant a lot to me as well. This was so very generous of you to do this for the employees and you really didn’t have to. But, thank you though for appreciating us and being such great bosses and running such a good company, it is a pleasure to work here! J
FYI- The church that Bill & I are members at, Sunrise Baptist Church, is trying to raise funds for the construction of a new facility for the Sunday school for the children’s class. I have been trying to find ways to get extra money to donate to this specific fund and you just made my week with this extra paycheck because I am giving it back to God & our Church. Thank you again for all that you do for us. Have a Blessed day or night.
Thank you,
Katie Surrett

Dear Mr. Miksic,
I hope that you and Inés enjoyed the Around the World trip, and that you’ve had a pleasant return home! Thank you so much for your book American Dream; it was a nice surprise to receive it! I’ve shared it with our office here and people are enjoying reading it.
It was wonderful to meet you both in Orlando before your departure. If there’s anything I can assist you with please feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to help.
Very best wishes,

American Dream: A Guy From Croatia


American Dream: A Guy From Croatia

"With $37 in our pockets and much apprehension in our hearts, we flew toward our future. We had no time to think what lay ahead because the future conies to soon anyhow."

American Dream: A Guy From Croatia is the exciting saga of a man who fled his home country with nothing but change in his pockets and built a successful company with determination and guts in America. 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
