Wow is all I can say! A great book that everyone can relate to regardless of their occupation. Earlier this year I was at a conference for work, I’m a teacher. There were 400+ employees at this conference. The presenter asked all the leaders in the room to stand up. All the administrators stood up but only a hand full of teachers stood up. The presenter said that we should all stand because we are all leaders. I think that’s how many of us are wired, if we aren’t in a supervisory position, we do ...more

I received my copy of The Gift of Struggle as an unexpected and wonderful gift. I dove in and found myself unable to put the book down. I’ve written in the margins, underlined passages and dog eared more pages than I’m comfortable admitting.

I’ve put an order for 30 more copies to give to my network. It belongs in your

This book was very inspiring to me! I’m the youngest of my siblings and I have had my own struggles and I am on my journey to become successful, as I read this book I realized that I am not alone and everyone struggles. It’s about how you turn those struggles into a positive lesson in life! Having a positive attitude about everything can change how you achieve your success and how you achieve any goals you have set for yourself. Amazing read!

All hail the underdogs! Thank you for the great stories Bobby and sharing the experiences and life-lesson's of a CEO. Once I picked up your book I didn't put it down until I finished. I will take your advice and apply it in my own young professional career.
