No one person can do it all. John Cornetta learned that at a very young age. He also learned that no one business can do it all either. Businesses need friends, alliances, vendors they can trust and that trust them, and sometimes even partners. Everyone needs friends and allies and Cornetta Enterprises has strategically formed many of these over the years to strengthen its grasp on any area of business it has entered.

    In any business Cornetta has started he seams to have a knack to not only befriend industry leaders, but to form life long alliances with them. That discipline comes from a core belief taught to Cornetta by family, that in all business dealings, all parties must feel they have just concluded with a win/win situation.

    Says Cornetta, " I have always known that to be the best, you need to hire the best and surround yourself with the leaders and achievers in any given business sector. I remember reading somewhere that Henry Ford basically said when asked if he knew about accounting and law and technical issues. When he said he did not and the man asking acted as if he had made a fool of Mr. Ford, and went on to say how could you ever expect to run this company Mr. Ford simply said, I hire people who are smarter than me and who know the answers".
