About the Book

Has the new normal just f***ed up your future? Did you get your degree in the mail instead of crossing a stage? You’re not alone. You did everything you were supposed to do. You worked hard, got the grades, and you’re ready to start your next phase of life.

Then the floor caved in. Thanks to a global pandemic, you’re entering adulthood, your new career, your college career, or the workforce during record unemployment, a terrifying economy, and social guidelines that have all but eliminated life as you knew it. Like it or not, this is your sink or swim moment.

If having a strategy was important before, now, it’s critical. The choices you make and the practices you adopt right now are going to shape not only your career, but every other aspect of your life as well.  It’s a lot to wrap your head around, and frankly, many people are going to screw it up. To be among the few who rise you need to:

  • Harness proven success principles
  • Adopt high standards and become disciplined
  • Learn how to focus on goal setting
  • Develop and improve essential relationships
  • Establish a high level of personal integrity through the right actions and attitude
  • Develop the resilience and grit to overcome adversity

If you’re looking for career advice, this is not the book for you. This book is a series of life lessons that lifted generations of Americans through hard times. Some of the lessons will be hard to hear. You will have to take responsibility for your actions and choices; to work for what you want. Are you up to the challenge? The key is in your hand. Use it.
