I had the rare and valuable opportunity to work with a mentor while building my company. Over the course of several years, I had the privilege of getting to know a man who lives out high ethical standards and well-thought-through philosophies that guide every aspect of his life. I learned much! I found that our culture does not teach, nor challenge us to think through these principles that can make life significantly more meaningful and enjoyable. The principles I learned and embodied as a result of this experience changed my life.
Because I believe these principles can change your life, too, I am passionate about sharing them with you through the vehicle of my books, woven throughout the story line. Some of the principles that changed my life include: overcoming frustration, impatience and fear – really. As well, understanding why, pragmatically, it makes sense to tell the truth, and understanding how responsibility, diligence and especially dignity are the keys to one’s success in life.
It is my hope that kids as well as adults reading this series will come away having been entertained, but more importantly,equipped with tools to better cope with life and its difficulties.
