“We all want to be successful, so what better way to advance that ambition than by reading the intimate stories of those who have persevered and frequently had to overcome imposing challenges to achieve personal and professional success and happiness.

“You hold in your hands a book of stories of courage in business leadership. Just like you and me, the authors of these stories faced obstacles and crises—the sort that test your mettle and bring tears and angst to the forefront, keeping you up at night. How they overcame these fears because they believed in their purpose is what ultimately led them to succeed. This is a book that will help you find the courage to overcome those same obstacles all leaders must face in order to be a leader.”
Drew Mendoza, Managing Principal,
the Family Business Consulting Group Inc.

“Amazing heartfelt work! This beautiful compilation of stories is a must read not only for everyone who is struggling today to find their way through life’s minefield but also for those of us that have found our way through—albeit temporarily, since life’s struggles are never totally behind anyone. I found the stories uplifting, yet upsetting at times, as I recalled my own struggles out of poverty. It is important to remember the circumstances that long ago lifted us from trying times and to use those memories to inspire us to become the catalyst for the success of others.”
Ken Kilroy, Senior Partner, Brightstar Capital Partners; Cofounder and CEO, Unity Investment Partners and Trailhead Advisors; named one of the “Power 25” top wealth managers in America
