From the Author
Being born into extreme poverty, the youngest of seven children, then having an accident at the age of one that disfigured my face, I grew up with very poor self- esteem and was angry toward the world. Thankfully, I was so determined not to let those things keep me down and define me, that I made the decision early on to do whatever was necessary to overcome the adversities I faced. And I made a commitment to start educating myself, so that when I faced any challenges, I would have the skills to surmount them. I eventually started several companies that I took national and international. Because of my success with these ventures, I was able to semi-retire at the age of fifty-four. I have learned a tremendous number of life lessons that I want to share with you through this book. My desire is that you will be able to apply these lessons to your life, so that you can find happiness, and ultimately go out and do great things for yourself and the world.
