From the Author
Significance. The idea of achieving that for your life may seem far-fetched, a "nice to have" but not really practical. Nothing can be further from the truth.
My intent in writing Dare to Matter was to reveal the framework of living life through a lens of significance. This book isn't filled with unrealistic ideologies. Rather, it reveals a life of significance in a practical, tangible way, leaving the reader with concrete next steps to take throughout the book.
Society continues to tell us that our greatest endeavor is the achievement of both success and happiness.
You were meant to be significant, and Dare to Matter shows you how.
