APPEAL’ing Topic – Leadership . Have you noticed that as you maneuver your life, there is quite a bit of knowledge that is not easily accessible? Even if you are “book-smart,” “street-smart,” or an Internet junkie, many of us are still struggling and looking for answers.  What we all wish to be is “access-smart.”  In my first book- Gaining A.C.C.E.S.S. to Lead Yourself: 16 Activities Critical to Continuous Evolution & Success for Self, I share my bumps, bruises, and braveries in an effort to help you learn from my mistakes.

The topics addressed in this book include

  • Resume enhancements
  • “Executive” presence
  • Achieving stretch goals
  • Focusing on the next goal
  • Getting out of your comfort zone

Available on amazon.com. I’ll be sharing some of the stories from the book on this blog.
