A Magnificently Successful Archon Shares the Secrets of His Success

Dear Brother Archons,

It’s a true-life rags-to-riches story: Archon John Catsimatidis emigrated with his parents to New York City when he was 6 months old, and all his life he had to work hard. During his senior year at New York University, with just eight credits remaining, he dropped out to work in the grocery business full time. But by his 25th birthday he was already a success with ten Red Apple supermarkets scattered along Broadway on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Now he is owner and CEO of the Red Apple Group, a diversified corporation that has holdings in the energy, aviation, retail and real estate sectors and over 8,000 employees. In his gripping new book, How Far Do You Want to Go?: Lessons from a Common-Sense Billionaire, Archon John shares the secrets of his remarkable success.

Immediately upon publication, How Far Do You Want to Go? skyrocketed onto the Wall Street Journal and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists, and it’s easy to see why. As he explains, the American Dream doesn’t come with an instruction manual—or even a sign to let you know when you’ve arrived at the finish line. How Far Do You Want to Go? tells Archon Catsimatidis’s dynamic story, from his beginnings in the grocery business to entering the political arena, including a New York City mayoral campaign. He’s tried his hand at nearly everything, but he’s far from finished with his adventures. Now, he offers readers a glimpse into the wisdom he’s gained—and the excitement he has for what the future holds in store.

John A. Catsimatidis, Archon Notarios, has served over the years in a variety of volunteer positions in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, including Vice Chairman of the Archdiocesan Council, board member of Leadership 100 and a founder of Faith Endowment. Archon Catsimatidis.
