The biggest motivation fro me to write was just the influence of others. I currently work in Kuwait and being on this side of the world I have had the opportunity to develop so many wonderful relationships with individuals I might only meet in passing. My book is an inspirational tool I try and use to help others help themselves. It does not have all the answers and the only right answers are the ones you feel you can apply to your life.
More importantly though it allows me to continue to give back but in a much bigger way. A portion of the profits from my book I have started and will continue to buy and donate books the under-resourced schools.
