About the Author
Kevin W. McCarthy is the first to tell you he's an unlikely author. In the late 1980s, this businessman, now business advisor, observed unproductive patterns of thinking and behaviors in clients' lives, work, and businesses that disadvantaged them strategically and competitively. At the core was the absence of a strong sense of self and identity. Kevin set out to help his clients and himself think more clearly and make better decisions. His focus rested on the concept of knowing one's purpose and the alignment of one's life with it. The roots of The On-Purpose® Approach were born.
This lifetime entrepreneur is classically trained in business. The typical track for best-selling authors rarely involves a business career, yet Kevin holds his Bachelor of Science degree in Business and Economics from Lehigh University and his Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from The Darden School at the University of Virginia. He grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and attended Shady Side Academy where he was the perennial class president.
In business, Kevin fully expected to be the business manager of a talented inventor, artist, or personality. He didn't anticipate himself becoming the face and voice of a greater message. For decades, this pioneer of the On-Purpose® message and methods has written, spoken, and advised clients in strategy for life and business.
The story in The On-Purpose Person is fictional, yet every author reveals a bit of himself in every book. Kevin regularly reminds us that authors write most about their struggles and that he is not the on-purpose person. He's simply the author of a book with the same title and he's a man working through the trials and joys of life more strategically thanks to the On-Purpose® perspective.
