One fish changes everything!
-Kim (Herlinger) Elliot
The author has mastered the art of transporting the reader, and inserting their presence with the characters and their surroundings. From a business perspective, it provides basic and non-complicated steps to help stay the course. The story uses inspiring examples of having faith, regardless of your particular beliefs. Would be a great gift. If there were a section in a book store, I can imagine it in many sections. Fiction, Fishing, Self Help, Business or Spiritual. This book will be a game changer for me. Thank you!
I am not a fisherman but I easily connected to the characters as they were incredibly relatable. While there is a character for everyone depending on where you are in your life, the main character Bags has a character arc parallel to everyones pursuit of happiness. Watching his character develop was eye opening and an inspiration or my own future. You do not need to be a fisherman to relate. However, I can absolutely see the perks if you are. I found my self invested in the happiness of the main character. At the same time, I was able to connect with what Bags was learning to my own life.
The author did an amazing job sharing his wisdom through this sweet story of Bags and his quest to catch the big one! The book "One Fish Changes Everything" has so many layers of depth to it. It truly is an inspirational story about investing in others. Im excited to share this book with my book club ladies. The book is full of wisdom and lessons learned. I highly recommend it! And I highly recommend bringing along a notepad to take notes just as the character Bags did. You will be thankful you did!

From the Author
The world is moving fast, and, in many cases, it feels like oursociety is moving in the wrong direction. More than anything, we aredisconnecting from relationships and connecting with our phones,our technology or, often times, consuming ourselves with self-pity. Ifyou study broken lives and broken people, many have spent a lifetimeovercoming their insecurity and their lack of confidence. One waywe try to compensate is by pouring ourselves into something weare confident in and working hard to develop the skills to win. Thatcould be business, sports, art, or so many different things. Theseactivities become all-consuming and require so much dedicatedpassion and selfish focus.
So, what suffers? Typically, our relationships with one anothersuffer and we can't live up to our own expectations, because we can'talways win or be on top (as much as we would all love to).
What helps? Often, real relationships, mentors, helping othersand a realization of the fact that we are not in total control. Theseare things that help change our mindset.
Do you see the problem? Our relationships suffer but realrelationships are a part of the cure. We think it all depends on usand that pressure adds up.
How many people do you walk by every day that you cordiallyaddress, but you really know nothing about them? Do you remainconsumed by your own thoughts? Do you let your surroundingsdetermine your well-being? I wrote the main character "Bags" tocarry the characteristics of someone who is always down on himself, ignoring his neighbor, hard to deal with, has very few friends.After some bad decisions and unfortunate luck, he is not movingforward in life and, quite frankly, isn't trying. The only thing he ispassionate about is fishing. Oddly enough, a series of events leadshim to uncover that an unlikely character can be his best chance oflanding a giant. He sets out on a journey that enables him to graspa simple four-step approach to reaching his goals. He learns clearlessons of communicating with confidence, realizes patience is a partof every strategic plan, soaks up the importance of perspective, andrecognizes that no matter how well you strategize you are never incomplete control. Most important he realizes that one fish changeseverything!
Thanks for reading, and please strive to pour yourself intoothers...share you! It helps us all!
