Editorial Reviews

Review

Big decisions often change lives. Five Bold Choices will positively inspire you to consider bold choices that could transform your life—and the lives of many others.
Tim Pawlenty, former Governor, State of Minnesota
 
Adversity brings opportunity, and how we deal with it determines whether we enjoy the journey. Five Bold Choices is a great guidebook for anyone who feels stuck and wants to get back on the path they were destined to live.
Jerry Colangelo, Chairman, USA Basketball; former owner, Phoenix Suns and Arizona Diamondbacks
 


Most leadership books train readers to share their successes and hide their failures. With stories of remarkable transparency, Five Bold Choices helps the reader see failure as not something to fear but an opportunity to grow.
Cheryl A. Bachelder, CEO, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Inc.; author, Dare To Serve

Five Bold Choices blends Jay’s riveting personal story with decades of experience as a CEO. The result is a book that gives us the clarity and courage to make the bold choices that make the most out of life’s greatest challenges. This book will embolden you to action.
Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow and three-time New York Times bestselling author of the Blue Zones: Lessons from the World’s Longest-Lived People
 


This little gem is worth a quick read. You will come away with some solid ideas to make your personal and professional life better.
—Tad Piper, retired Chairman and CEO, Piper Jaffray Companies
 
Any leader knows that bold choices either bring growth or disaster. Making bold choices wisely is the key. Based on profound personal experiences, Jay and Larry spell out five fundamentals that we all need as leaders, family members, and friends to make wise choices.
—Brad Hewitt, CEO, Thrivent Financial
 


Drawing upon their own professional and personal experiences, Coughlin and Julian not only offer their insights and wisdom as to how one can navigate life’s storms with clarity and conviction, but do so while leading the reader on an intimate journey emerging from their own spiritual and personal renewal. Be forewarned: reading this book will not only cause one to reexamine and reassess his or her current status in life, professional or personal, but will provide scriptural principles necessary to pursue a life of influence rather than a life of affluence. Coughlin and Julian use various passages of Scripture to drive home the strategic importance of being grounded and balanced, both spiritually and personally. I recommend Five Bold Choices to those individuals who may be re-examining their standing in life or who simply need quiet reassurance that they are on the right path.
Dr. Alan Cureton, President, University of Northwestern St. Paul, MN
 
Authentic! Transparent! Powerful! A clear framework that I can personally apply to overcome challenges. Jam-packed with relevant life-changing truth! A huge thanks to Coughlan and Julian for sharing Five Bold Choices with the world.
David Horsager, speaker, strategist, and author of The Trust Edge
